2016 EVENTS

And we don’t mean Christmas.

Ok, ok, we know there’s the matter of the festive season to contend with first… but you’re going to want something exciting in your diaries to face the post-Christmas January gloom.  In a month usually filled with rain, non alcoholic beverages and hopeful new gym memberships that you’ve forgotten by February, we think you need a little added sparkle! So here at wedding blog HQ we are making the perfect plans for an absolutely sensational year of Brides Up North bridal events.

*Check out the new dates just added too!*

For those Brides Up North readers who are new around these parts, we have a loyal and local following both on these pretty pages and off, and have hosted over 60 gorgeous wedding exhibitions and soirees since 2012!  We’ve amassed a fair bit a ridiculous amount of experience in this time, and are always tweaking our events and offering (every single event at every single one of our beautiful partner venues is completely bespoke and meticulously planned from scratch each season, we’re fussy like that).

We generally hate blowing our own trumpet (modest? us? noooo!) but we really do think that our shows are the very best in the business, and pride ourselves on delivering an amazing and inspiring experience to both our visiting brides and exhibitors alike.

2016 is by far our busiest and most exciting year yet (the team have like, one Sunday off each out of 52) and we’d love to help you get your wedding inspo on and see you at one of our very special wedding shows. We are proud to be working with some stunning new partner venues this season – watch out for dates at Capesthorne Hall, Adlington Hall, The Belle Epoque, Hornington Manor, Newby Hall, Denton Hall and Worsley Park Marriott, to name a few – as well as some well established Brides Up North favourites, like Middleton Lodge, Ramside Hall, Hardwick Hall, The Bowdon Rooms, Hilltop Country House, Allerton Castle, The Alnwick Garden, Nostell Priory, Wentworth Woodhouse, The Mansion… the list goes on…

We’ve also freshened things up for 2016 by adding some exciting new concepts to the mix as we host the UK’s first dedicated large scale festival wedding exhibitions in 2016, in collaboration with Stockeld Park and Capesthorne Hall. These outdoor venues will be transformed into a boho wedding wonderland! There’ll be huge sail cloth tents, chill out areas, tipi villages, vintage Pimm’s tents, street food vendors, live bands and 60+ luxury wedding suppliers at each to make all your festival themed wedding planning ideas a reality. Bring your bridesmaids, designate a driver, wear flowers in your hair and make a day of it… these are set to be events to remember. Watch this space for more news and “line-up” announcements, coming soon!

So, there’s just a bit going on backstage right now, and we can’t wait to share all the fun with you lovely lot. Whilst we sweat over staging and floor management, why don’t you take a moment to have a browse of our jam packed schedule and start blocking out a few Sundays… things are about to get very, very pretty.

See you in 2016?
