Hardwick Hall Hotel Online Flyer Spring 2015

If you follow the blog over on Twitter and Facebook – you’ll probably have guessed that I am just a little bit excited about our jam packed series of Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibitions this season.

With our portfolio at it’s best ever, every venue that we work with is handpicked and special, and I can’t wait to start the season in style by welcoming you to the beautiful country house hotel that is Hardwick Hall Hotel on Sunday 22nd February 2015, from 12pm till 4pm, FREE entry

Other wedding fairs?  Pah!  What’s the point?! We are very proud to run the largest and most exciting free entry bridal exhibitions in the North East (our schedule last season was nothing short of epic). Sunday is a bit of a special one too. It’s going to be packed to the rafters – and it’s twinkling crystal chandeliers – with wedding inspiration, fabulous ideas and the very, very best of the North East wedding industry. Ladies, if there’s one show to be at this weekend, this one would be it.

If the level of pre-registrations that Team Brides Up North has received is anything to go by, it’s going to be an amazing day!  We adore hearing your love stories and getting excited with you and we can’t wait to meet so many of you in person. I just love saying hello to my readers in real life, scoping out the new trends and generally hosting a fabulous party every single Sunday. Who wouldn’t love this job?

It’s also our first big event since announcing our collaboration with the luxury wedding magazine for the North, Unveiled Magazine at the start of the year.  I can’t wait to catch up with my supplier friends in person and fill them in on some very (very!) exciting plans for my first issue as Editor.

Ever get the feeling that everyone is talking about you?  Yep, that. Since this post, I’ve definitely been feeling the pressure  - a collaboration between two of the North’s biggest names has the wedding industry buzzing – and I’m hungry to deliver!  I’m ripping up the rule book for the much anticipated Issue 04 and I’ll be featuring the very best talent that the regions have to offer in those beautiful pages.

You can pick up your copy of the current issue of Unveiled at Hardwick Hall.

As well as having our fingers firmly on the pulse of what’s hot in the wedding industry, we’ve also access to all the details you need to plan your big day including bridal fashion, all the details, live music, photography, videography, photobooths, love letters, venue styling, menswear, flowers, stationery, beauty, exclusive on the day treats, two professional bridal catwalks (always with a fun twist, trust me!), the list goes on…

The Hardwick Hall wedding planners will also be on hand to help you to realise the day of your dreams at this beautiful venue.

Well then, what are you waiting for? Grab your girls or your groom, and we’ll see you there!

Excitement is building at Brides Up North HQ and there’s a frisson of confetti in the air.

Is it really that time again?

We are so excited to get started with another fabulous Brides Up North exhibition season, and this spring, it’s going to be bigger, busier and more beautiful than ever.

You can view the full schedule of events – spanning three regions (North East, North West and Yorkshire) over three months - by clicking here. You can use our drop down menu to browse, select the event of your choice, pre-register for free entry and your VIP goody bag and pop the date in your diary.  You can even register for more than one event if you like – each is very different and we’ve made sure that there is something to delight everyone!

We’ve said it before but we don’t just work with any old  venues or suppliers.  Our venue portfolio is carefully managed to offer our readers choice and quality, and our exhibitors are handpicked. We cover every detail – dresses, menswear, stationery, cars, photographers, videographers, rings, accessories, bridesmaids, finishing touches, entertainment, photobooths, love lights, flowers, favours, hair and beauty… the list goes on.
