Luxury Wedding Fairs With Top UK Wedding Blog Brides Up North

Back In A Jiffy…We’re Off The The Wedding Blog Awards!

October 8th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Brides Up North/ Black Tie Photobooths

Our suitcases are packed full of high heels, sparkle and hot pink lipstick.  We’re laden with the latest issues of all our favourite glossies.  We’ve raided the sandwich section in M&S for Percy Pigs (travel essential). 

Our tickets have been clipped and we’re off on the train to London town for the first ever Wedding Blog Awards hosted by Wedding Magazine

I am so proud that my blog has been nominated for an award at this evening’s ceremony, alongside a bevvy of other beauties, and would like to say a huge thank you to you – our readers and supporters – who voted in your hundreds and made that happen.  I love you. 

With a very hectic schedule of features writing, events co-ordination and spending time with my little family, I didn’t need asking twice when Wedding Magazine’s little golden invitation dropped through our letter box.  Never mind the awards, a night out is a night out!

Brides Up North/ Black Tie Photobooths

But then I read on… it’s only a night out at the bloomin’ Ritz, hosted by Mark Francis (of Made In Chelsea fame, darlings!) and the perfect chance to catch up with my lovely fellow bloggers.  Sold.  I was down the shops outfit hunting quicker than you could say “babysitter”.

In the end, I’ve opted for a little silky number I already had in the back of my wardrobe, but with a blow dry booked, freshly manicured nails, my glam assistant Ellie on my arm and a glass of Champagne in hand, I’ll be ready to celebrate.

Whether we win it or not, we’re definitely going to show them how it’s done, Northern style. Brides Up North/ Black Tie Photobooths

(Maybe not as above). 

That Northern Revolution?  It’s happening people…

Brides Up North On Tour: See You This Weekend Newcastle!

January 25th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Occasionally (ok, really quite often – I’m not really one for sitting still) I like to get out from behind my computer screen and head out into the big wide World to meet up with my readers and industry friends.  The online space is great for gathering inspiration, ideas and leads, but there’s nothing like meeting people in person or touching, trying and tasting.

.

Basically, I want to know what I’m talking about, ensure that the content on this blog remains relevant, real and useful to my readers – hello there! – and make Brides Up North as accessible as possible.  I’m always only an email away (get in touch – I can point you in the right direction and put you in touch with the right people for almost any wedding query), but there’s nothing like a good in person chinwag, is there?

.

.

Me at the Tweet Up

Always ready for gossip (at The Brides Up North Tweet Up North West)

.

That’s why I (and my little team) take such time and effort to plan and produce the best (we think!) bridal exhibitions and wedding industry networking events across the regions, so that our readers and industry friends can connect in an environment jam packed with talent and innovation.  And it’s also why I choose to support selected industry partners at their bridal events across the North.

.

.

The UK Wedding Shows at Metro Arena

.

.

This weekend I’m heading to Newcastle to join my friends at The UK Wedding Shows (and watch out for me at their first ever conference later in the year!) for a weekend of wedding wonders at their big Metro Arena event on the banks of the River Tyne this weekend, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th January 2013, from 10am – 5pm every day.  Come and find the Brides Up North team at stand 119, where we’ll be on hand for all the wedding tips and advice that you could ever need – just ask – and giving away some special Brides Up North goodies. It would be lovely to meet you, so drop by to say hola!

.

.

Dandy Events Inspirational Wedding Weekend

.

.

We’ll also be dropping in over the weekend to see our great friends and supporters Dandy Events at their inspirational showroom event on the Scotswood Road.  This is just a stone’s throw from the Metro Arena, so if you are popping into that show, give your groom some sugar and make sure to visit Denise and her team too.

.

So, I’m off to pack the car with goodies and quite a lot of pink…  if you are travelling this weekend too, be safe on the roads, and I’ll see you soon!  And after you’ve walked and sample collected yourself into a stupor, make sure to check back here for this weekend’s pretty posts…

Tell Brides Up North a little bit about Fable & Promise

.

Fable & Promise opened its doors in September 2011 but is not an entirely new company.

Before Fable & Promise was born we were a much smaller business: Silver Lining Sewing Rooms, offering bespoke bridal design and professional alterations in Blackburn. Rachel worked there full time with me and mum giving up all our evenings and weekends to help out. We loved that environment and the opportunity to be really creative. We dreamed about the possibility of working together properly but the size and location of the business pretty much dictated how much we could grow. We’d effectively reached our limit in that environment and were looking at our future when we were approached by a local bridal shop looking towards retirement. They didn’t have to ask twice and the rest is history… 6 very short weeks later Fable & Promise was created.

.

.

ZT Photography for Fable & Promise    ZT Photography for Fable & Promise

.

.

What lines of wedding gowns do you stock?

.

San Patrick is our flagship bridal brand: we just love their innovation and style and the quality of their gowns is unrivalled. Their wedding dresses are simply stunning but we love them as a company too; starting out as lace manufacturer they are still a family company 90 years on and you can really tell they care about every one of their brides. It’s hard not to fall in love with them. Fable & Promise are a premier stockist meaning that we carry a wider range of styles than other retailers and we are the only stockist in Lancashire.

.

We are also very proud to stock Linea Raffaelli bridal gowns. Linea Raffaelli isn’t afraid to experiment and their designs really appeal to those brides with more adventurous tastes. Their exquisite designs can use fabrics woven with metal threads and their collections contain some beautiful alternatives to ivory that really flatter all skin tones. There was no hesitation in adding Linea Raffaelli to our collections.

.

We are also massive fans of Mori Lee. They have always been popular with our brides as their new collections are always fresh and extremely fashionable. They really know how to flatter all figures and add sparkle like no-one else. We’re really excited that we have also just extended our Mori Lee collections to include the Julietta range designed specifically for the fuller figure.

.

There is also a new range due in store in a couple of months but we’re keeping this one under our hats for a little while…

.

.

.

.

We hear that you have a bespoke service? Tell us about it.

.

Our bespoke service is really important to us. There are many reasons someone might chose to have a wedding dress or mother of the bride outfit made but predominantly our bespoke customers are after something they can’t find in available collections. We’ve made everything from romantic and ethereal floaty chiffon wedding dresses to ultra dramatic black satin encrusted with blood red handmade flowers. The excitement we feel when we begin a new bespoke creation is just immense and seeing it take shape can be quite emotional.

.

I think there is something about the whole experience too… you bring all your ideas and inspiration, have them transferred to paper, see the design come together in toile form and then choose fabrics and embellishments which results in a totally unique, entirely original work of art that only you will ever wear. That can only be a special feeling.

.

Our bespoke service doesn’t just stop at creating the perfect wedding dress. Our mother’s can also have a unique experience and love being able to have shoes, bags and hats made to match their bespoke outfit.

.

Between the three of us we have a wide range of techniques and expertise under our belt; we love the opportunity to get creative with fabric flowers and intricate beading and Mum loves nothing more than unleashing her creativity on a flat piece of sinamay and turning it in to a cocktail hat or flamboyant fascinator.

.

.

ZT Photography for Fable & Promise

.

.

What lines of accessories do you stock?

.

We are a bunch of magpies and love accessorising. Since we make a lot of our own accessories we maybe expect a higher standard from the designers we stock. We are careful to only carry lines that are handmade with the highest quality materials using the best techniques. That’s why we stock both Richard Designs and Liza Designs -  they have very different styles but both are continually bringing fresh and inspiring designs in tiaras, veils and jewellery.

.

We are always on the lookout for new and interesting accessories to add that finishing touch. We have recently started stocking the most gorgeous crystal bouquets by Couture Crystal & Button Creations. They must spend hours collecting all the perfect trinkets to incorporate into each bouquet and the results are just beautiful. They can be completely personalised as well; adding family heirlooms and special charms or we can even save the hem lace from a wedding dress to be incorporated. We also love our line of lace parasols and bridal umbrellas by Chrysalin… entirely too practical in this British weather.

.

And we mustn’t forget our Rainbow Club and Rainbow Couture shoes and bags. Their designs are extremely fashionable and they offer a range of fits and heel heights. Their dye-ing service is also second to none and fantastic for bridesmaids and mother of the bride outfits.

.

All these ranges are supplemented by our own in-house ranges of bridal headwear, birdcage veils, handmade flower bouquets, shoe clips and garters. All of which can be modified to your heart’s content.

.

.

.

.

Where are you located?

.

We’re located in the centre of Blackburn, Lancashire – the heart of the textile industry (or it was). We’re lucky to be within easy reach of the M6 and M65 meaning we’re privileged to see brides travelling from Liverpool, Manchester and further afield. You can’t miss us really. We’re on the main road into Blackburn from Preston and fortunate to have off road parking.

.

.

.

Can you give Brides Up North an idea on price?

.

We are firm believers that you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get beautiful design and quality fabrics. Our designer wedding dresses start at just £500 up to £2000 and with our bespoke service we really are able to tailor your design to your budget.

.

.

.

.

Do Brides Up North need an appointment?

.

We would always recommend making an appointment as we understand that it can be daunting to know where to start and difficult to navigate your way into layers of tulle and lace. We prefer to work by appointment as this allows us to manage our time and the workroom effectively and ensures you have our undivided attention. It is particularly worthwhile booking an appointment if you want to snap up one of our coveted evening or Saturday appointments and is essential if you know you want the bespoke service as space is limited. Don’t worry if you don’t have an appointment though as we will always try to make ourselves available and will endeavour to help our brides discover their style and find the perfect dress.

.

.

What can Brides Up North expect when they come in to Fable & Promise?

.

Fable & Promise really does offer something different to most bridal boutiques. We have a fantastic team who really do look after our brides. We’re also slightly eccentric which really appeals to those brides who want something more individual. We have been complimented time and again on our friendly and accommodating manner with many of our brides really valuing our ability to cater for the whole wedding party. Our brides really appreciate that we can take the stress out of making sure everything matches and everyone has found something that they really love to wear.

.

.

What is your current favourite gown that you stock and why?

.

This is one of our favourite games and one that has developed its own rituals. Whenever a new collection arrives at Fable & Promise all work stops, the boxes are broken open and the dresses brought out in a flurry of tissue paper and cellophane. The process of scrutinizing the designs begins and we love watching the team assess each new dress. This has actually recently developed into our ‘Dress of the week’ feature on Facebook … with nine of us at Fable & Promise there is definitely a wide range of tastes and it’s great to see how popular our choices are.

.

My personal favourite at the minute is Calais by San Patrick. I love the elegance and 1920’s influence and adore the effect that meters and meters of super soft tulle creates. It’s also flattering for every body shape and beautiful in any size.

.

.

Is there a particular style of dress that is popular with your brides at the moment?

.

We are noticing a couple of trends at the moment – 50’s inspired elegance with crisp lines and nipped in waists and romantic layers of lace.

.

.

How does Fable & Promise provide a different experience to other wedding dress boutiques?

.

The main difference of Fable & Promise is that you really can get everything your heart desires… without compromise. We have fantastic designer collections but if there’s nothing in our collection that ticks all the boxes we have the ability to turn your wildest ideas into reality. Nothing is beyond our grasp.

.

We are also passionate about helping people find other details for their wedding and like to encouraging relationships with other wedding professionals. There is some amazing talent in the wedding industry and it’s great to work with people who also share your passion.

.

We also love to play out and experiment with staged photo shoots and we had such fun with Zoe from ZT Photography and Gail and Kelly from Couture Crystal & Button Bouquets on our exclusive photo shoot for Brides Up North in Blackpool that it really didn’t matter that it was teaming down with rain and as blustery as anything on the end of North Pier.  The day was coordinated by the The Wedding and Party Boutique with fabulous hair and make up by Hazel Tyler.  

.

.

.

Do you stock bridesmaid dresses?

.

We have some stunning bridesmaid dresses to choose from and currently stock Mori Lee, Romantica, Ronald Joyce and Forever Yours bridesmaids. We usually have roughly 30 bridesmaid’s designs in our collection and with all of them available in up to 75 colours, up to size 34 and various lengths the options really are limitless. We also have a new range due in store in August. You could say we have a bit of an addiction. Rachel in particular is a sucker for a rainbow… if our suppliers arrange their collection in a rainbow it somehow seems essential that we have it all. Needless to say if you can’t find what you want from our collection you can always have something made.

.

.

Are you married? What did you wear on your wedding day? What would you choose to wear now?

.

My husband and I got married 7 years ago. Of course we made all our outfits ourselves back when Rachel was seamstress for another bridal shop and the idea of Fable & Promise or Silver Lining was only a dream.

.

I’m a dyed in the wool Goth and the idea of wearing Ivory brought me out in a cold sweat. I knew I wanted something unconventional and right up until buying the fabric I had planned to wear red.  At the last minute I changed my mind and wore black. It was absolutely the right decision and I’ve actually worn my wedding dress several times over the years.

.

If we were getting married now I would probably choose something very similar but having developed so many techniques for embellishments would probably end up even more dramatic.

.

.

How can Brides Up North get in touch with you/ find out more?

.

Our website www.FableandPromise.co.uk is a great source of information and is continually being updated. Our blog and events pages are where you’ll find out about any news, events or special offers. We also have Facebook www.facebook.com/fableandpromise and Twitter www.twitter.com/fableandpromise accounts which are updated daily and give you more of an insight in the day to day goings on. This is also where you will find out about the other wedding businesses we are working with.

.

.

ZT Photography for Fable & Promise     ZT Photography for Fable & Promise

.

.

Do you have any events coming up that Brides Up North should know about?

.

We are actually hosting a wedding marquee as part of the Royal Lancashire Agricultural Society Countryside Experience in Witton Park, Blackburn on 20th May.  We have some fantastic wedding professionals on board offering a wide range of services from wedding flowers by Ewood Florist and photography by Colette Davies to the gogopod photo booth, Sweet Sensation Sweet Trees and Beautifully Vintage china hire. We also have some fantastic catwalk shows lined up showcasing some cutting edge designer gowns and excitingly for us we have invited some of our customers who have had bespoke creations made to come and strut their stuff on the catwalk too! We simply can’t wait!

.

We are also holding a fantastic Prize draw where we have decided to offer up to £1000 off a wedding dress at Fable & Promise as the main prize! If you want to get tickets or more information they can click here.  

.

It’s going to be completely different to your standard wedding fair; for a start it’s in a marquee rather than a hotel or stately home. It’s also forming part of a much larger event and is just one of the attractions organised for the day. You will also be able to take in some fantastic craft making, community activities, classic car shows, animal displays and much more. It promises to be a fantastic family day out.
