April 21st, 2015 | Julia Braime

Allerton Castle Spring 2015We are nearing the end of an absolutely fantastic season of Brides Up North events (*waves* to all our visitors, suppliers and new readers!) but we’ve one last sensational #supersunday of Luxury Wedding Exhibitions for you to enjoy before bidding you adieu till the autumn.

If you haven’t made it to one of our pretty events this season – or if you have and would like to do it all again (each of our events is completely bespoke and entirely different from the rest) then you need to put this last-chance-date in your diaries.  Because these shows are special…

We’ll be quick stepping it to both Northumberland (The Alnwick Garden) and North Yorkshire (Allerton Castle) this Sunday 26th April 2015, to bring more Brides Up North readers than ever before one huge dose of wedding inspiration at two of the most beautiful venues around, all in one go!

First up, we’re off to play at princesses at the gorgeous Allerton Castle:

One of my very favourite events in our entire calendar, the Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition at Allerton Castle really is that – pure luxury.  Even if you’ve already booked your wedding venue, come along to meet and seek inspiration from the region’s very finest wedding industry suppliers.  Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

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!
