Well hello Brides Up North! What are you doing hanging around these pretty pages? Get out and enjoy that Bank Holiday sunshine (here’s hoping)!
But before you do, could you spare three seconds to cast your vote for your very favourite wedding blog in the whole wide World (clue: you’re reading it now) in The Wedding Industry Experts 2014 Awards. Because we’re worth it, yada yada…
We’ve not entered this process before but we noticed that a lot of our industry buddies do rate these awards so we thought we’d give it a whirl, but much like our coveted Wedding Blog Award from Wedding Magazine, we won’t be able to take home any bacon without your support.
We’ve entered Brides Up North in two categories for 2014:
…and we’d love your vote in both!
Please use the links above to show your support. All it takes is a click, and I’ll love you forever.
What we say: After months of prep and planning, Brides Up North launched in November 2010 on the day that the Royal Engagement was announced. Since then, the site has skyrocketed in popularity and profile to become one of the most visited wedding blogs in the UK and is the only top bridal blog especially for Northern Brides.
Brides Up North stands out because it encourages its readers to think local and to support the fabulous wedding industry suppliers on their own doorstep. Every single styled shoot, real wedding or industry expert we feature on the blog took place or is based in the North of England.
As a result our readership is very loyal and local too. Away from the pages of the blog, Brides Up North’s wedding industry networking events, parties and bridal exhibitions are regular sell outs on exhibitor space with record attendances across all venues
Brides Up North has been named Best Blog for Northern Brides by Channel 4, been named “Best Big Day Inspiration” blog in the Wedding Magazine Awards 2013, listed in Easy Wedding Search’s Top 100 UK Wedding Blogs and in Bride Tide’s Top 100 Wedding Blogs in The World 2011, 2012 and 2013. Brides Up North was headline sponsor for and hosted the first North of England Wedding Awards. Brides Up North is also a regional judge in The Wedding Industry Awards 2015 for the fourth year running.
Voting closes on 31st May 2014.
Thank you so much.

Former lawyer and bride to be Julia founded Brides Up North in 2010 with a chip on her shoulder. Frustrated by the poor Northern presence in glossy bridal magazines and online, she decided to do something about it herself. 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…
