It’s been a crazy couple of weeks behind the scenes here at Brides Up North HQ (ok, it’s been a crazy eight years, but who’s counting…) as we prepare to bring you the final date in our epic, epic, EPIC(and that’s a lot of epics we know) festival wedding fairs wedfest’18 tour finishing in the North West with the glorious WEDSTIVAL’18 at Capesthorne Hall, Cheshire this coming Sunday 20th May 2018, 11am till 3pm, FREE ENTRY*
*yes, you’re not seeing things, these EPIC events are FREE for you and your entire bridal party to attend (just make sure someone else is the designated driver for this one!)
To us, the WEDFEST’18 TOUR is like all our Christmases coming at once… but kicking off the start of summer, with Pimms, and tents, and gorgeous gowns… and ALL the wedding inspiration!
If you’re a North West bride to be, Capesthorne Hall is where you need to be THIS SUNDAY 20th May, as we transform the popular stately home into a wedding wonderland with our huge sailcloth tent, tipi tops, stretch tents, PIMMS Bar, street food vendors, live music, cars and campers, 70+ luxury wedding suppliers and so much more. It’s one for every bride, whether your style is breezy boho or super chic. We’ve just made the planning process so much more fun – a real day out, rather than just ticking a box on your planning checklist. And grooms always seem to enjoy this one too…
These events are big, beautiful and brilliantly useful too… don’t miss it! It’s your last chance this year!
Please register for free entry to WEDSTIVAL’18 for you and your party.
As well as fast track, free entry, we’re giving away free Bride To Be goody packs, sponsored by UNVEILED magazine, filled with glossy magazines and treats from Brides Up North. As demand is high, to all you need to do is select the show that you want to attend via the link below and register. While stocks last.
We create events that are fun, friendly and affordable events for wedding suppliers too! We would love to welcome new exhibitors to the Brides Up North family in 2018. We are now accepting exhibitor bookings for all of our fabulous Luxury Wedding Shows across three regions.

Exhibitors will be strictly limited by category and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Since their inception in spring 2012, all exhibitions have been sell outs on exhibitor space. Consequently, we expect demand for 2018 to be very high. Get in touch as soon as possible to guarantee your place.
Alternatively, please email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP for exhibitor booking and pricing information listing the events or area that you are interested in.
The forecast looks great right now, but, if the weather is looking a little dubious on the day (hey, it’s the North West!) there’s nothing to worry about either – all of our structures are perfectly weatherproof, warm and welcoming, so a little drizzle ain’t going to spoil our party. And what a party it’s going to be!
As well as our street food vendors, live music and entertainment, we’ve so many amazing exhibitors and styling ideas on show that you’ll leave with every last detail covered. Any supplier worth their sequins will be at one of our WEDSTIVAL’18, many offering on the day discounts too, and the Hall itself will also be open for viewings!
Order a cocktail, stay for lunch, and get your wedding planning all wrapped up at the same time. Result.
Grab your groom, your girl squad (and even your gran!) and get yourself to the bridal event that everyone’s been talking about. Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair… and we’ll see you on the field for the WEDSTIVAL’18!

We’ve just put our best ever season of Brides Up North events to bed for the summer (someone pop the prosecco!) and Brides Up North HQ is still buzzing from our final shows of the season, our much awaited – and absolutely epic – wedding festivals.
We’ve already shared our official images from #WEDSTOCK16 at Stockeld Park, Harrogate – click here to catch up – and now our official event photographers Peace Wedding Photography are back with all the images from our North West event, #WEDSTIVAL16, held at the magnificent Capesthorne Hall in collaboration with Shades and Big Chief Tipis.
If you are new to these pretty pages, let us explain a little… based on a hunch that the world might be ready for some massive, festival themed bridal events (we’d either had a lot of coffee or were smoking something strange that morning in the office!) the Brides Up North team set out on a bit of a mission: to bring the North the UK’s first large scale wedding festivals. Over a year in the planning, it turns out that the fabulous Northern wedding industry and our brilliant readers (that’s you) were about to get as (naturally!) high on the idea as we were!
60 plus of the area’s finest wedding industry suppliers at each event, big top wedding tents, tipi villages, bell tent honeymoon suites, arched wedding tents, Party Bales, Baleric inspired chill out areas, street food, a blow up pub (!), a Double Decker Bus bar, vintage caravans and campers, bloom bars, floral selfie backdrops, picnic areas, live bands, trapeze artists… we could go on… each event just felt like one huge wedding planning party. With Pimms. Pimms by the bucket-load.
We had such a blast that we’ve already set the dates for 2017 – #WEDSTOCK17 will take place at Stockeld Park on Sunday 7th May, 11am till 4pm and #WEDSTIVAL17 will take place at Capesthorne Hall on Sunday 21st May, 11am till 4pm. Get the dates in your diaries (and interested wedding suppliers should get in touch using the contact form below). Watch this space for a couple of other exciting dates too… North East, we mean you… and accept no imitations!
Exhibitors will be strictly limited by category and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. We expect demand to be very high.
Discounts are available for block bookings with our other events. Get in touch for pricing, exhibitor info and to guarantee your place.
If you came, partied and wedding planned at our #WEDSTIVAL16 here are some official photographs to remind you that Brides Up North do wedding fairs differently.
