My Heart Wanders… A Styled Bridal Shoot & Exclusive Event In Yorkshire

So, I don’t want to get you all too excited of a Monday morning, but it appears that we are back to the action here at Brides Up North!  The big home and Brides Up North HQ office move finally took place last week and it seems that although we were keen to avoid the un-packing process and keep the pretty flowing on these pages, our internet service providers had other ideas.  We did manage to keep you going with a few inspirational shots across server lines, but our usual double daily blogging schedule was somewhat interrupted (and a lot of hair torn out in the process!).

.

Now I don’t want to be counting any chickens before they hatch – or anything of that nature, to be honest – but it appears that even if our “internet real” isn’t quite with us yet, our contingency plans look set to keep the gorgeous going over here on the wedding blog for the foreseeable future.  Hurrah to that.

After all that unintentional neglect at the hands of the media big-wigs, I thought that I better deliver something pretty special to get us back into the swing of things.  And I know a group of ladies who never fail to deliver on that front… let me hand you over to my friends and colleagues Cat, Sarah and Bex of Cat Hepple Photography, Leafy Couture and We Love This Limited, who together with some of my very favourite Yorkshire suppliers are My Heart Wanders

.

I am thrilled to have been invited to join forces My Heart Wanders as their resident in 2013, and see where this beautiful journey takes us.

Here you will find ideas, tips, styling, advice on everything from colour palettes to seasonal blooms, photography guidance, inspiration and utterly gorgeous pretty.

But My Heart Wanders is so much more than just inspirational shoots. With each shoot we will create an event, a place for brides to visit to see the shoot brought to life and get to know the suppliers behind it. Our first one is Sunday February 24th 2013 at Hotel Du Vin Harrogate.

.

The event is going to be a really special supplier showcase with some huge names involved including Barnard and Westwood (the Royal stationer) who is just starting to move in to the mainstream wedding market, Two Birds Bridesmaid, Polly Edwards, The Dramatic Jewel Company and lots more. Brides Up North Featured Supplier The Whimsical Cake Company have just designed the Christmas grotto at Canary Wharf.

We want to host an event where brides can interact with suppliers and we are going to re-create the shoot in the gorgeous Hotel du Vin Harrogate.  Here, brides can enjoy the installation on a personal level and be really inspired. We will also be hosting The Academy, short talks from the suppliers where brides can come along, get advice and go home with a head full of ideas.
