#WeddingHourLive… By Booth Revolution

November 14th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Booth Revolution-12

Do you follow Brides Up North on Twitter or like our pretty Facebook page?  If you do (and if you don’t, click the links to get that sorted) then you’ll have seen some sneak peeks from the brilliant night we had at our recent wedding industry networking party #WeddingHourLive, which we co-hosted with our friends at The Wedding Affair.  If you didn’t get your ticket in time, make sure to keep watching these pages (or those social media feeds) for details of our next big event.   

If you came along to help to bring our Twitter feed to life this Halloween, then another huge thank you for your support.  Unfortunately, this is how I choose to repay you.

Did you consume enough candy/ cocktails* or disguise yourself adequately enough to feel confident stepping into our photo booth courtesy of the fabulous Booth Revolution?  If you think you did, you might like to look away now.  It isn’t very pretty…

Trick or Treat?! There are some absolute crackers here.

Swinging by to spookify your Wednesday afternoon with a haunting little film from Brides Up North’s recent networking party in partnership with The Wedding Affair, courtesy of Mulhern Media

Someone might have had a few cocktails when it came to interview time!  Ahem. 

If you missed the photos from the event click here to catch up… and watch out for some (really quite terrifying) photo booth images on these pages very soon.

Frightfully Fabulous. Did You Get Spooky At #WeddingHourLive? A First Look

October 28th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

My recovery rate isn’t what it used to be.  It’s taken me the best part of a week to shake off the fug following a frightfully good night at our first ever #WeddingHourLive. 

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

Lisa of The Wedding Affair and I have been wanting to collaborate for a while – and we wanted to do it in style – so we decided to get together to bring the wedding industry’s Twitter feed to life for a spooky Halloween soiree.  This was an entirely not for profit event, and our way of saying thank you to an industry that is so supportive of our businesses.  Plus, being in the events game, we like to show off what we can do! 

And what a night it was

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

Whenever you throw a party, there’s always that 12 year old girl inside shrieking “Oh my god!  Will anyone come?!  Does anyone like me?!  Will there be enough cake?!  Will people dress up?!”. The party bags were packed, but we needed a crowd. 

We weren’t disappointed!

They came.  They costumed (beyond all expectation).  They cocktailed.  They casino’ed.  And they teared up the dance floor.

We really do love you all.  A huge thank you for your amazing support and making this event so much fun.  Thanks-not-so-much for the week long hangover.

If you follow this blog on Facebook and Twitter (ahem!) then you’ll have already seen some candid and photo booth shots from the night (thank you Peter and Susie at Booth Revolution), but here’s a first look at what went down from behind our roving photographers’ lenses.  There’s more to come… no one’s safe (!)… but here are a few of our favourites so far!

One Week And Counting… Are You On The List? #WEDDINGHOURLIVE

October 15th, 2013 | Julia Braime

#weddinghourlive

One week to go.  Fancy dress (sort of) sorted.  Bar stocked.  Guest list heaving.

If you’ve been reading the wedding blog for a while, you’ll know that Brides Up North are well known for our Tweet Ups and networking parties, hosted by us for the wedding industry as a way to further the Northern Revolution that is going on on these pretty pages and as a thank you to our supplier friends for their support.  Click here to read more about previous events and the ethos behind them.

This Autumn, I decided that it was time to get the party re-started (due to my recent little arrival we haven’t had a gathering since our super Christmassy party at Thorp Perrow in December last year) with a very special event indeed.  Joining forces with Lisa of The Wedding Affair, we are thrilled to bring you #WEDDINGHOURLIVE – bringing your Twitter feed to life this Halloween and creating the ultimate wedding industry networking party!

It’s going to be so. much. fun. 

So, if you are a Northern wedding industry supplier – you need to be there!  Or maybe you’re bride reader who fancies coming along to a bit of a knees up? Get involved!  Don’t be shy, everyone is super friendly, and this is a great way to break the ice and make connections with your fellow industry specialists/ future suppliers.  There’s the option to bring a friend (or two) too if you prefer safety in numbers. 

There’ll be apple bobbing, hauntingly good nibbles and cocktails, and lots of spooky surprises. We would love to see you, dressed in your frightful fancy dressed best – if you dare!

And what am I going as?  Currently it looks like a sort of Topshop fuelled, glamorous vampire… a “glampire”? Do those exist?  Come to think of it… do vampires?

Anyway!
