Even powered by all the pretty get through here on a daily basis at Brides Up North HQ, we can’t be everywhere at once (although with 18, and counting, bridal events planned for this year alone we really are trying)! Unfortunately – sob! – we don’t have a date in our diaries to visit our lovely East Yorkshire readers this season, so rather than leave you high and dry (geddit?) I’ll hand you over to our friends and Brides Up North Featured Suppliers at The Deep. Hull’s biggest Wedding Fayre is back! Now in its fourth year, The Deep will open its doors to future brides, grooms, their friends and families on Thursday 23rd January 2014 from 7pm to 10pm.
Zoe at The Deep says: Many people don’t realise that The Deep is licensed to hold weddings, civil ceremonies and receptions for which we can provide an unforgettable and unique venue. So come along and see what this exciting venue can offer you and don’t forget, you can talk to The Deep’s dedicated events team about what you are looking for.
We have some stunning locations within the venue where couples can get married, including in front of the Endless Oceans window with the majestic rays, green sawfish and other exotic species swimming by. Why not get married in our stunning glass observatory with amazing views overlooking the River Humber?
Experience the best the region has to offer with over 45 exhibitors showcasing their wares as well as enjoying our catwalk shows and sampling canapés from The Deep’s own Two Rivers Restaurant.
Why not start with planning an exciting and entertaining hen/stag event with the help of the ladies from Ann Summers who will have some amazing lingerie on display, or something a little more traditional with cocktail making at Revolution Hull.
If you are looking for “the dress” visit Jacqueline’s, It’s All About the Dress, Ella D and Sewing Solutions offering a wide range of styles from modern to classic, contemporary to vintage. Not forgetting the gentleman, we have both Anthony’s Wedding and Formal Hire and Len Becks Menswear exhibiting their finest suits and more.
All brides and grooms want to look their best on their special day so we have all the tools you need including personal training from Beki Johnson, Kelly Clark Hair and Helen Guy Make Up.
A whole host of car suppliers will be attending including Marshalls Vintage Cars or for something a little different try The Alternative Wedding Car Company who will be displaying a VW Camper Van and traditional Beauford’s. We also have stylish transport from All Occasions Cars.
Everyone loves to capture their special day so visit Insight Photographers, Grazia Louise Photography and Class Images when considering your photographer. You could also try out a video from Lovell Films and Wedding HD.
If you are looking for some exciting entertainment for your guests why not try a photo booth from Booth 22, a roulette table from Casino Knights, The Yorkshire Party Snapper or magic tricks from John Morton.
Don’t forget the finer details to make your day a success. Ambience Venue Styling will ensure your venue is looking amazing, to top it off why not consider a chocolate fountain from The Chocolate Fountain Experience to give your guests a sweet treat alongside a stunning cake from Cakes by Leni or Cupcake Carousel? Create a party atmosphere with Track Back Mobile Disco or a more classical sound with Parisi String Quartet.
Finally the finishing touches to your day such as balloons from the amazing Airy Fairies, handcrafted invites from Invites For All, those special rings from Gladstones Jewellers and Smooch Wedding Rings. We have some unique wedding favours from Dove House Hospice with their ‘Lucky in Love’ scratch cards, accessories from Dreams Come True, sweet bouquets from Cellephaneiacs , stunning vintage china from Pretty Yorkshire Vintage or elegant accessories including post boxes and wishing wells from Dreams Come True.
Lastly, take a walk round and see the beautiful flowers from Adorations and plan your honeymoon with a little help from Travel Counsellors and Co-operative Travel. You could even consider a spectacular firework display to amaze your guest with The Fireworkers.

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…
