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. 

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

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. 

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

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!

Limelight Photobooth Hire for Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog

.

.

Well, I thought I might as well get it over with, so we are kicking off the week with an embarrassing recap of all the photos from the Limelight Photobooth at the Brides Up North Tweet Up Yorkshire. 

.

Ladies and gentlemen, this motley crew are the people into whose care you are entrusting your dream wedding!  But brides of Yorkshire, don’t fear, I can reassure you that these wedding industry professionals are the best in the business. 

.

It’s just that everyone needs a night off once in a while, don’t they?

.

.

.

.

Huge thanks once again to Sarah and Sarah at Limelight Photobooth Hire for giving up their time on the night.  A photobooth is a fun and fabulous alternative to favours and/or a guestbook – and you can bet that your guests will be talking about it for weeks afterwards!  Give the girls a call to see how they can add some photo fun to your special celebration.

Nice To Tweet You – The Official Photographs From The Brides Up North Tweet Up North West!

June 28th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Martin Hambleton Photography for Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog

.

.

So, this time last week, the very next day after the excellent Brides Up North Tweet Up Yorkshire (see all the official images from that event by clicking here), I was back on the road again in a North Westerly direction to throw a little party for all my North West wedding industry colleagues at The Belle Époque in the beautiful town of Knutsford. 

.

The bunting was flying on arrival, and after even more heavy lifting than the day before, decorating galore and a swift makeover in the ladies’ toilets, I was ready to rock and roll. 

.

.

Martin Hambleton Photography for Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog

.

.

For those of you who are new readers of Brides Up North (and you are gathering in your thousands month on month – hello there!) I explained in my post about my Yorkshire event exactly what a Tweet Up is and why they are important, so I’ll keep it brief this afternoon.  Basically these events are a chance for me to say a huge thank you to all the wedding industry friends and colleagues who have supported the growth of Brides Up North so wholeheartedly and have allowed me to keep bringing the wedding pretty your way twice a day as well as hosting the larger Brides Up North events especially for everyone out there sporting a sparkler on their ring finger.

.

These not for profit events are a chance for the industry (many of whom are individuals working hard – and sometimes holding down another job too – from their kitchen table) to get together, exchange connections and boost their business – meaning bigger and better things for the Northern wedding industry at large and ultimately for the most important people of all: the bride and groom.  That means you. 

.

This event wouldn’t have been possible without the help of my amazing team of wedding industry wonders, so lets have a few snaps for them today.

.

First up, a big thank you to Collette from The Belle Époque for letting me use her beautiful venue for the event.  The rooms, staff and cute Knutsford setting are just perfect.  If you are looking for an individual venue that adds a touch of glamour and has an intimate feel, The Belle Époque, with its beautiful rooms, cool bar and pretty roof garden is an excellent choice.

.

Marvellous North West wedding photographer Martin Hambleton Photography captured the whole event on camera.  Thank you so much to Martin not only for such a brilliant record of the evening and turning the photographs round so bloomin’ quickly, but also for holding a camera all night when everyone else was sloshing back the vino.  I’m sure he snuck a cheeky glass or two in though, right Martin?

Sugar based treats in the form of the most beautiful occasion cake with pink and purple peonies and the loveliest cupcake displays were provided by the wonderful Francesca at The Cheshire Cat Cake Company and EmmyLou at LilyBud Cupcakes respectively.  You gals are amazing at what you do, and will always find a way to my heart by plying me with cake.  Huge thanks too to Pretty Little Trio for supplying their gorgeous vintage cake stands for EmmyLou’s display.

I don’t know what I’d do without my great friends Kelly and Colette at All Wrapped Up Events.  These chicks not only brought their amazing vintage sweetie cabinet along with them, but lent me a whole host of props and goodies for venue dressing and a foto fun area. These two are true professionals who will always go that extra mile for their client.  Get them booked.

Stunning floral displays from Laura at Laurel Weddings twinkling with crystals and hanging gems brought the outside in, so even though it was pouring down outside we had an indoor paradise of pink and purple blooms.  I am always stunned at the talents of my Featured Suppliers.  You can find Laurel Weddings on the Florists page in my Directory.

.

Jo from Simply Bows & Chair Covers also gave her own time (between dashing to other set ups) to bring my brand colours to life using glorious sashes and table runners.  Thank you so much Jo!

We were entertained all evening by the wonderful talents that make up Fonix Music.  Just wow!  Taylor and Al kept spirits high and feet tapping all night long.

And last but not least a big thank you to Wedding Ideas Magazine for supporting my concept from the outset, lending their support to these events and letting every guest take home a copy of their brand new issue!  Hopefully a good hangover read…

Nice To Tweet You! The Official Photographs From The Brides Up North Tweet Up Yorkshire!

June 27th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

India Hobson Weddings for Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog

.

.

India Hobson Weddings for Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog

.

.

So, this time last week I was busy lugging boxes of props and goodies, cupcake towers, bay trees, hydrangeas, giant silver urns and wicker hearts up the rather magnificent staircase (below) in readiness for the descent of well over 100 of the Yorkshire wedding industry’s finest upon the Brides Up North Tweet Up Yorkshire 2012 at Dine Services’ The Mansion, Leeds!

.

I was also feeling just a little bit nervous (thank you to my friends Sarah and Shona from Leafy Couture and the wonderful India Hobson – who took all the beautiful photographs that you see before you – for talking me down!) It’s always super scary planning and hosting a party for your peers and although I had a completely sold out guest list in one hand, the twelve year old inside me was still whispering “What if nobody comes..?”

.

But it turns out that you like me, you really like me (or you like buttercream frosting, one of the two) since    all the planning, plotting and heavy lifting was well worth it and my industry friends and colleagues showed up in scores to raise a glass, feast on canapés, cake pops and cupcakes, pull some poses and generally get their chat on. 

.

.

India Hobson Weddings for Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog

India Hobson Weddings for Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog

.

.

If you are new to the wedding blog, and are wondering what the beejezus a Tweet Up is, then let me explain.  Once a year or so I like to say a big thank you to all my sponsors and colleagues who have supported Brides Up North and it’s message so wholeheartedly since it’s inception (Join the Northern Revolution!) and these events – supported by my friends at Wedding Ideas Magazine – are my way of doing just that. 

.

They are not for profit events solely for everyone to get together in beautiful and inspiring surroundings, knock back a few drinks, enjoy themselves and hopefully forge some long lasting business connections (although no one’s forcing anything – this isn’t speed dating) in a relaxed environment that will last for seasons to come.

.

.

India Hobson Weddings for Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog

.

.

India Hobson Weddings for Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog

.

.

The whole reason that Brides Up North works for my sponsors and is enjoyed by my readers (hello, you!) is that it’s almost like chatting with a friend – just one who never gets sick of talking about weddings!  I’m here to refer, suggest, enlighten and basically show you just how fabulous the Northern wedding industry is.  Everything I post is at my own discretion and although I promote my sponsors on these pages I won’t take on a sponsor or feature anything that I don’t personally like or believe in.  It’s like one big conversation. 

.

I do think it’s important though to carry on the online conversation in real life – and that’s why I think events like these – to let me and other members of the industry connect together and share ideas and recommendations – are so vital to the success of Brides Up North and to the industry as a whole.

.

After some lovely bubbly fuelled chats last week I have so many new ideas and avenues to explore and hopefully as a result lots of fabulous new content and very talented supplier suggestions to share with my bride to be readers – watch this space people!

.

Speaking of conversations, there is a constant one going over on the Brides Up North Facebook page, where we are building a real community of brides and suppliers and a great forum to interchange ideas.  Come over and join us today!  In addition, don’t be shy!  I would also love to see more debate and discussion on the actual blog too – don’t be afraid to leave your comments on blog posts – this blog is written for you:  I love to hear from you!

Whilst I have got the mic, so to speak, I think a few “thank you very much”s are in order:

To the wonderful, efficient and ever perfect Dine Services  team – thank you as always for looking after us so well.  The team are the best in the business and I believe that their venues are among the best in Yorkshire.  For a gorgeous, perfectly catered, classy and stress free wedding day look no further than this super squad and their beautiful collection of stately homes, castles and houses. 

.

I count myself seriously lucky to work with Dine hosting the Brides Up North Wedding Exclusives (the Autumn dates for which have just been released – click the banner at the top of the wedding blog to reserve your VIP bride to be goody bag) and can’t wait for the next season.

Next up, huge snaps for the super talented India of India Hobson Weddings who created such a beautiful photographic record of the event.  This lady has massive talents and anyone looking for the prettiest wedding pictures should give her a call.  You will not be disappointed.

The ever lovely Steven of Forever Film was also there to capture all the action on film… big love to him and more from him later…

Massive effort on the part of Sarah and her team at Leafy Couture meant that the Mansion room and staircase were transformed into an indoor garden, bursting with colour and scent.  The Leafy Couture girls are exceptionally creative florists and super friendly to boot – working from a very slim brief from a busy wedding blogger they created floral displays to die for.  I’d recommend them wholeheartedly for your big day – whether it’s a huge affair or small soiree!

.

.

Helping the Leafy team to dress the venue was Alex from Simply Bows & Chair Covers, a company that works right across the Country to beautify your wedding day furniture.  Alex used dreamy shades of turquoise, pale pink and purple to create a soft and float Midsummer’s look.

Limelight Photobooth Hire were the absolute hit of the evening with their amazing (and brand new!) flocked vintage style booth.  With dozens of props and endless patience, the ladies looked on as we all – getting more and more merry – struck our crazy poses.  For a fun way to tackle your guestbook and break the ice, give these girls a shout.

Another man that everyone was talking about was the super slick Glen Roughead (the new King of Swing) – find him on Twitter here – who kept us entertained with his rat pack perfect set.  Seriously, someone give this man a recording contract!  I’ll be screaming in the front row!

Book him for your wedding now.  That’s an order.

Last but not least (as they brought the sugary stuff!), a huge thank you to Skye of The Whimsical Cake Company, Natasha of Buttercream Cupcakes and Karen from Icing & Lace who outdid themselves with delectable displays of delicious cupcakes and cake pops.  I’m still on a sugar high now!

Good afternoon!

I’ve been in recovery this morning after two days ON TOUR (I like that, it makes me feel a little bit Stacee Jaxx) for the Brides Up North Tweet Up wedding industry networking events. 

.

.

Tom Cruise is Stacee Jaxx for W Magazine June 2012

See the likeness? Ok, maybe not.

.

.

I say “networking events”, when what I really mean is huge, beautiful parties with all my industry friends.  I have had the very, very best time over the last two days, seeing all my hard work organising something bigger and better than last time – like you do! – come to fruition. 

.

A massive thank you to all who gave up their own time to help to create something really special, including:  Simply Bows & Chair Covers, Laurel Weddings, All Wrapped Up Events, The Cheshire Cat Cake Company, Lilybud Cupcakes, Fonix Music, Martin Hambleton Photography, The Belle Epoque, Dine, Leafy Couture, India Hobson Weddings, Forever Film, The Whimsical Cake Company, Buttercream Cupcakes, Glen Roughead, Icing & Lace and Wedding Ideas Magazine

You actually rock.  For real.

But with a manic schedule, lots of chatting to lots of people, lots of time up ladders, lots of time lugging enormous boxes, props and flowers, lots of miles clocked up and lots and lots of standing up in ridiculously high heels, comes an absolute energy fail.  Arriving home after last night’s event – and a drive back across the Pennines at 3am – stone cold sober and (despite all the beautiful canapés that I inhaled) completely starving, I felt totally wiped out.  But it was totally worth it.

Flash forward and after an unheard of before morning off – whoop whoop! – with a huge lie in, a mountain of hot buttered toast, a bubble bath and a blow dry I feel restored and ready to go.  So I’ll be back bright and early tomorrow to round of a week of gorgeous here on the wedding blog (I haven’t left you hanging have I?!) with a gorgeous Real Wedding from Georgina Harrison Photography – watch out for it.

*Waves!* Dropping In On My Way West With A Few Diary Reminders…

June 21st, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Brides Up North Tweet Up 2011 by Greyeye Photography

Knocking it back at last season’s Yorkshire Tweet Up

.

All the signs (and last season’s evidence: see above) say that I should be currently in bed grasping for the Alka Seltzer, as last night’s Brides Up North Tweet Up Yorkshire (one of my wedding industry networking events) at Dine Venues’ gorgeous The Mansion was just brilliant fun!

.

Thanks to all of you for coming out and making it a fabulous evening.  I love you Yorkshire!

.

A full recap with some pretty pictures (and some cinema too!) will follow, but for now a massive thank you to the wonderful industry suppliers who helped to make the evening possible:  Dine, Leafy Couture, India Hobson Weddings, Forever Film, The Whimsical Cake Company, Buttercream Cupcakes, Simply Bows & Chair Covers, Glen Roughead and Icing & Lace. 

.

However the Alka Seltzer will have to wait till tomorrow. No rest for the wicked, as it’s off to the North West today to do it all over again: and I can’t wait!  Get the bubbly on ice Knutsford!

.

In the meantime and since I am hosting my own little Yorkshire love-in as I drive out West this morning, I just wanted to make sure that you lovely Yorkshire brideshave got some very special dates in the diary.  VIP registration is not yet officially open, but if you drop me an email to julia@bridesupnorth.co.uk stating your name and venue of choice, I’ll stick you on the list.  First come first served, goody bags whilst stocks last only.
