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.

Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibitions 2015

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. You’ll leave our events excited and inspired (and maybe a little poorer – but happier)! We promise you that.

Just click here to check out this lovely line up…

See you there?
