Brides Up North really values the support of our readers, sponsors and event exhibitors.  Here is just a selection of the nice things that they have said about us too.  Big love!

we love you too…

“I don’t think there is anywhere else that showcases Northern wedding suppliers like this. Most (well all) of the wedding magazines have a Southern bias – no good to anyone planning a wedding in the best half of the country!” Deborah, Brides Up North Reader

“Thanks so much for mentioning us on Facebook and Twitter. The power of Brides Up North never fails to amaze me! It is wonderful for the amount of hits that our website gets once you mention something for us.”  Kathryn, Brides Up North Sponsor, Damselle Tiaras. 

A big thank you for organising such a fantastic show! I was so busy all day speaking to lots of brides and grooms I had to skip lunch! I had lots of interest and even got two bookings without even asking for my prices!" Sarah, Wedding Exhibition Exhibitor, Floral Lounge

“We love Brides up North due to its focus on this industry in the North of England, which we hold dear to our hearts. It’s full of interesting and informative advice and facts not to mention the clear passion and dedication contributed by Julia. It’s real and all about real Northern people which makes it so much more appealing. The information provided is dedicated to celebrating what the North of England can provide, from the beautiful priceless landscapes of venues to fresh and amazing local suppliers who cater for the wedding industry. Not to mention the fun people she meets and who share their stories. Julia’s own take on these areas are really a fascinating read.” Sarah, Brides Up North Sponsor, Limelight Photobooth Hire

“Since becoming a Brides Up North Featured Supplier, Little Folk has enjoyed a sharp increase in the number of inquiries for our personalised toppers and also in the number of visitors to our site in general.  Julia is fun, friendly and approachable but above all dedicated to and passionate about her brides, featured suppliers and providing the most interesting & relevant content on the fabulous Brides Up North blog.”  Donna, Brides Up North Sponsor, Little Folk Toppers

“When I moved up to Leeds, I knew no one, nothing of the wedding world and was very alone. After putting off planning my wedding for a while, I finally found your blog and everything changed. It was great to see inspirations and other real weddings along with how much was going on up here as I felt it was all happening down south, where I had just left everyone behind. It sounds weird, but your blog stopped me from getting homesick as could now focus on something else. So a massive thank you, I really am so thrilled that you are going full time with it as it will only grow and evolve into something even more wonderful!”  Phoebe, Brides Up North Reader, Miller Weddings

“Your blog is amazing Julia.  You are a breath of fresh air!”  Shona, Brides Up NorthSponsor, Little Town Bakery 

“I wanted to say a personal thank you to you. You have given me lots of inspiration ever since I met you at the wedding show in Manchester and I really appreciate it! With blogs like yours in particular, when people ask me how stressed I am about my upcoming wedding, I have to be honest and say not very stressed at all, because I know that I have plenty of inspiration if I ever do get stuck!” Ana, Brides Up North Reader

“Just seen our wedding on your blog and wanted to say that I absolutely LOVE the feature, thank you so much for featuring us. Your support with our wedding and my blog has been overwhelming and I feel very honoured. It’s another aspect that has made all of the hard work and planning that went into our wedding worthwhile. Big humongous hugs to you and lots of thank yous!”  Laura, Brides Up North Reader

“Until earlier this year I didn’t have a clue about weddings, let alone all the fantastic wedding talent right under my nose! I’m checking Brides Up North on an almost daily basis because I don’t want to miss out on something that’ll give me inspiration or might just be the icing on the cake! Keep up the good work Julia!”  Samantha, Brides Up North Reader
