Nostell Priory Spring 2015

…and welcome to Nostell.

After five straight weeks of brilliant bridal events (and double the inspiration with two events in a day last weekend) you’d think we’d be flagging.  Of course not.  We’ve got Northern stamina and the Brides Up North team are ready to bring on even more pretty!

We’ll be reprising our popular event – packed with the area’s most fabulous exhibitors – at the stunning exclusive use venue that is Nostell Priory in just under a fortnight’s time!

Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition

Sunday 12th April 2015

Nostell Priory, Wakefield

11am – 3pm

FREE ENTRY

Trust me when I 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, event dressers, flash motors, photographers, photo booths, diamonds (who doesn’t want those?!)… you name it!

You can also meet with the venue managers, Dine, and enjoy tours of the stunning ceremony room and rose gardens before returning to the refurbished Riding School event space to get your wedding inspiration on!

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 the visiting brides are always so lovely at Nostell Priory. It’s a happy job we do here at Brides Up North.

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

March 6th, 2015 | Julia Braime

Ramside Hall Luxury Wedding Exhibition Spring 2015

Well, you picked the right time to stop by, because look!  It’s the Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition!  It’s THIS WEEKEND!  And it’s only the biggest event in our whole spring calendar.

The region’s best and most beautiful wedding industry suppliers will gather at of the North East’s favourite wedding venue – Ramside Hall Hotel & Golf Club – on Sunday 8th March 2015, from 12pm till 4pm, FREE ENTRY.  

Yep. Free.  With a goody bag on top!

Judging by our pre-registration, it’s going to be pretty epic…

Cat Hepple Photography

Once again, we don’t do things by halves here at Brides Up North!  We are filling the whole hotel – that’s five huge function areas – and it’s going to be spectacular!

If there’s one wedding fair to attend this year, this is it.  This isn’t your typical wedding fair though, it’s a knock-your-socks-off super showcase!  This is officially the largest free entry bridal event in the North East area and should most definitely be one for your diaries.

Whether you are shopping for the final details or have no idea where to start, I can promise you the very best choice of the best bridal experts in the region.  Everything you can think of for planning your big day will be represented and there’ll be on the day discounts too.

Come and see our two professional bridal catwalks (this season we are getting ready to party!) meet the Ramside wedding planners, pose in our photo booths, taste our scrumptious wedding cakes, kit out your man and bridesmaids,  play dress up with gorgeous gowns and accessories, get lost in our beautiful floral displays, get the hair and make up sorted, source your stationery, find a top photographer and tick off all those last essential details.  You name it, we can sort it.

I adore this event – it’s big, it’s busy, it’s exciting, but most of all it’s really beautiful.  I can’t wait to see you all there for a day of wedding heaven… and lots of fun too.
