this sunday: discover the secrets of saltmarshe hall

September 26th, 2016 | Julia Braime

Some of our very favourite recent real weddings (and you know we get through our fair share of those here at Brides Up North HQ!) all had one thing in common – the venue.  Saltmarshe Hall was a name that kept cropping up again and again in our most stylish celebrations, so we just had to find out more. One thing led to another – as these things often do – and that curiosity was the start of a (VERY) beautiful friendship!

We are delighted to present an intimate Luxury Wedding Fair at Saltmarshe Hall this coming Sunday 2nd October 2016, to showcase the venue and a truly handpicked selection of the area’s most fabulous wedding suppliers. As those of us sporting a sparkler on our ring finger know all too well, the best things come in smaller packages. This isn’t one of our biggest events, but it is one of our best.

This event is pure luxury, an open doors, friendly soiree, to show you exactly why Saltmarshe (and our chosen supplier team of up to 20) is so very special. If you are on a venue hunt, or are simply looking to finalise the last wedding details with the very best industry bods available in a relaxed and stunning, no pressure environment, then you must put Sunday in your diary.

We’ll be showing off our most fabulous find yet – East Yorkshire’s most romantic wedding venue – between 12pm and 4pm on Sunday 2nd October, and as with the vast majority of our events, entry is FREE.

A restored Georgian Grade II listed Hall with a dash of style and elegance combining both traditional and contemporary charm and set in 17 acres of stunning parkland, Saltmarshe Hall is a truly unique place to say I do. The Saltmarshe ethos is to listen to what you want; and we love that they don’t enforce any off the shelf packages, rather letting their couples’ creative input flourish.

All the rooms are licensed for ceremonies and there’s also the option to hold your ceremony outdoors.  The team also promise to never hold more than one wedding per day at Saltmarshe Hall, so that the venue is truly your home – and blank canvas – for your personal celebration.

hey #bridesquad? you’re invited to nostell priory

September 21st, 2016 | Julia Braime

The pretty just keeps on coming…

We’ll be reprising our popular Luxury Wedding Fair, set in it’s own secret walled garden– packed with the area’s most fabulous exhibitors – at the stunning exclusive use venue that is Nostell Priory next Sunday 2nd October 2016, 11am till 3pm.

This 18th century mansion is set amongst 300 acres of parkland and beautiful landscaped grounds, with a curved carriageway, elegant gardens and luxury interiors that make it a prestigious spot for tying the knot. Make your vows as you overlook superb views from The Orangery, or hold the ceremony in Wragby Church within the estate. Clink glasses in the Rose Garden, before heading into the Riding School & Coach House for dining and entertainment.

Trust us when we say this is one not to be missed.  This season we’ve got all the details covered – and more, all under one very beautiful roof.  There’s bridal fashion galore, with some of Yorkshire’s best boutiques in attendance – as well as all you need to get your man suited and booted – live music, flowers, cakes, photographers, photo booths, diamonds (who doesn’t want those?!)… you name it!

This show is a personal favourite of mine, the space is divine and our exhibitors are a friendly and fabulous bunch, but most of all our visiting brides are always so lovely at Nostell Priory. #dreamjob

So, is the date in your diary yet?  It should be.
