So I don’t like to sensationalise (much) but these last 12 months have been truly epic for the growth of the Brides Up North brand.  I am passionate about our mission here on these swirly silver pages: bringing fabulous local wedding suppliers to the attention of fabulous local brides, helping to connect and build strong bridges between hardworking small business people in the regional industry, showing that the North has style by the paper pom pom load and having a lot of fun whilst we are at it. 

.

And you know what?  It’s working!  You can recap on our achievements over the past two and a bit years here, but all I know is that our Brides Up North branded bridal and networking events are packed to the rafters, you can read our columns in the very best regional and National wedding titles on a monthly basis, we are being invited to participate in bigger and better high profile industry events and that website hits are higher than ever before making Brides Up North truly one of the most popular wedding blogs in the UK.  Hurrah!

.

The Northern Revolution is in full swing, and I’m already looking forward to a very exciting 2013.  More to follow in our yearly seasonal recap later this week (so I won’t go on!), but for now, I wanted to tell you all about an industry event that I am thrilled to have been invited to be a part of. 

.

It appears that this is moving up in the World.  Don’t worry though, I’m taking you with me.  Hold tight!

The UK Wedding Conference

.

.

My industry colleagues Linda Williams and Bev Howard of The UK Wedding Shows have embarked on a new project to share their knowledge and expertise with other business professionals. The UK Wedding Conference is a very special, must visit event for wedding professionals nationwide and offers two days packed full with informative and educational sessions.

.

The girls say: "The UK Wedding Conference can offer every business the opportunity to learn how to make improvements and how to continue to deliver to brides in a fast paced market."

.

This is a top class educating forum for anyone wanting to exceed customer expectation and to drive their business forward, enabling them to become market leaders within their profession.  Along with networking opportunities that will be second to none, the conference will incorporate workshops and sessions with industry leading guest speakers sourced from within the UK and internationally bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience.

.

You and I will be rubbing shoulders with the likes of; Bernadette Chapman, Kelly Chandler and Sandy Moretta of UK Alliance of Wedding Planners; Tina Reading, Editor at Ultimate Wedding Magazine; Nicky Ward of Guides for Brides Ltd; Heidi Thompson of Evolve Your Wedding Business; Marc McIntosh of Showcase Events, producer of some of the largest bridal shows in the United States; wedding marketing expert, Andy Ebon and Brad Buckles of the Bridesclub USA.

The twenty three sessions over the two days will be complimented with workshops focusing on the more serious business aspects including accountancy, employment law, insurance and pensions.  A trade exhibition will also run over the two days allowing delegates to shop for services required to enhance their business.

.

Mark the date in your diaries! The UK Wedding Conference will take place on November 4th & 5th 2013 at the International Events Centre at Ricoh Arena in the Midlands.  I’ll see you there.

Astounded by the rapid growth of her blog and brand, Julia now manages Brides Up North’s online content alongside their busy wedding exhibition season, industry events and related commissions. And she’s always, always, got a new project on the go…
