We’ll be at Allerton Castle, Yorkshire, this Sunday 24th September 2017, 11am till 3pm, FREE ENTRY to bring more Brides Up North readers a huge dose of wedding pretty.

Set amongst stunning landscaped gardens, with dramatic architectural features throughout, this 18th century gothic revival Grade I listed castle is a magical setting for your dream wedding day.

For this bespoke, beautiful (and really rather big!) event, we’ve handpicked a selection of the most brilliant wedding suppliers in North Yorkshire. Come and see this spectacular venue dressed to the nines: be amazed by our towering floral displays, sample our artisan cake creations, pose in our photo booths, hear some of the best live music in the County, play dress up with gorgeous gowns and accessories and tick off all those last essential details.

Not only have we over 30 of the region’s very best wedding suppliers in attendance, with every detail covered from cakes to cravats, but The Swanky Bride are also hosting a POP UP DESIGNER DRESS SALE at the event! The boutique is bringing a collection of So Sassi current and sale dresses along with some amazing bargains by Special Day, Kate Walker, Cymbeline, Augusta Jones, Emma Hunt, Stephanie Allin, Lilly and bridesmaids dresses by Ghost.

Dress already sorted?  There’ll be shoes, veils and accessories by Rainbow, Charlotte Mills and Miranda Templeton!

One of our very favourite events in our entire calendar, the Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Fair at Allerton Castle really is that – pure luxury.  Even if you’ve already booked your wedding venue, come along to meet and seek inspiration from the region’s very finest wedding industry suppliers.  Trust us, you will not be disappointed!


Who wants to play at princesses?!

Once again, we don’t do things by halves here at Brides Up North!  We are filling the whole hotel – that’s five huge function areas – and it’s going to be spectacular!

This isn’t your typical wedding fair, it’s a knock-your-socks-off bridal fashion bonanza with all the extra pretty on top!  This should most definitely be one for your diaries. Whether you are shopping for the final details or have no idea where to start, I can promise you the very best choice of the best wedding experts in the region.  Everything you can think of for planning your big day will be represented and there’ll be on the day discounts too.

We’ve added a HUGE DESIGNER DRESS SALE, sponsored by The Bridal Collection and The Harrogate Wedding Lounge.  Quite literally the best you’ll find, with over 100 dresses to try and buy on the day, all at £499 or less.  Yes. You read that right: all at £499 or less and from designers like Enzoani, Maggie Sottero, Justin Alexander, Claire Pettibone, Ian Stuart and Raimon Bundo.  You do not want to miss this!

As well as getting your dress shopping on, come and see our two Brides Up North designer bridal catwalks (we’re planning some really beautiful shows with the best boutiques in the area – don’t miss them!), meet the Ramside Hall wedding planners, pose in our photo booths, taste our sweet treats, play dress up with gorgeous gowns and accessories (you are going to be spoilt for chose let me tell you!), get lost in our beautiful floral displays, get the hair and make up sorted, find a top photographer and tick off all those last essential details.  You name it, we can sort it.

I adore this event – it’s big, it’s busy, it’s exciting but most of all it’s really beautiful.


I can’t wait to see you all there for a day of wedding planning heaven… and lots of fun too.

In The News: Brides Up North Is Voted Best UK Wedding Blog For Northern Brides By Channel 4Beauty!

January 6th, 2012 | Julia Braime


The day before Christmas Eve, this was feeling super stressed.  There were invoices to send, invoices to pay, blogs to write, emails to answer, a scary server switch (which happily, now has the wedding blog running far speedier!), rooms to tidy, a huge pile of unwritten Christmas cards, bags to pack, presents to wrap and I still hadn’t finished my Christmas shopping.  Result:  Near festive meltdown. They could shove their mince pies where the sun doesn’t shine as far as I was concerned. 


Then *ping!* another ruddy email.


But suddenly, there was calm.  Then some shouts of glee.  Christmas was back on! 


Thank you 4Beauty for making it all seem worthwhile, as Brides Up North, along with some other fab blogger friends, was recognised in their Best Wedding Blogs 2011 roundup as the Best Wedding Blog for Northern Brides.


And so it came to pass, 2011 was the year that 4Beauty saved Christmas.
