Brides Up North

Life Thru A Lens: Behind The Blog In March 2014

Things always seem to go at about a trillion miles an hour here at Brides Up North HQ, so sometimes it’s fun (and mid wedding exhibition season seems as good a time as any!) to catch breath and reflect on the stuff we’ve done, people we’ve seen, places we’ve been and things we’ve achieved.  My family and I spent the first month of the year on the other side of the World (business as usual of course, just on a very different time zone) and since returning to the office my feet haven’t touched the ground.  Of course, happiness is always in the journey, not the destination – and it’s great to look back on my snaps from the first few months of the year.

In my experience, planning a wedding is similar.  It’s all to easy to solely focus on that one day.  And yes, that’s important, but what’s crucial is the fun you have getting there, and the good times that you create afterwards.  I hope, like me, you’ve had a great start to 2014… and I’m sure the best really is yet to come. 

Here’s a look behind the scenes here on the wedding blog.

Julia Braime
Former lawyer and bride to be Julia founded Brides Up North in 2010 with a chip on her shoulder.

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…
