Thomson Weddings Bride & Groom Incentive

.

.

Long time readers of the wedding blog might remember that back in June 2012 I did a little “on location” work with Brides Up North Featured Supplier Thomson Weddings over in Paphos, Cyprus, filming a short video chronicling a day in the life of their destination weddings, acting as an extra and generally checking our their fabulous destination wedding services at the beautiful St George Hotel.  If you missed it, catch up here.

Now, if blue skies, blue seas, sparkling sunshine and superb service weren’t enough, Thomson are launching a very special set of incentives for their brides and grooms… and you heard about it here first!

.

Thomson Weddings say: The Bride and Groom Incentive is our wedding favour to you. As your party size gets bigger, we’ll give you the following gifts to make your wedding abroad even more memorable. What’s more, to give you a head start, we’ll consider you and your other half as the first members of your party, so you only need to invite 6 other guests to hit the silver. This offer is available for all new Thomson weddings booked from 21st January 2013.

Brides Up North On Tour: See You This Weekend Newcastle!

January 25th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Occasionally (ok, really quite often – I’m not really one for sitting still) I like to get out from behind my computer screen and head out into the big wide World to meet up with my readers and industry friends.  The online space is great for gathering inspiration, ideas and leads, but there’s nothing like meeting people in person or touching, trying and tasting.

.

Basically, I want to know what I’m talking about, ensure that the content on this blog remains relevant, real and useful to my readers – hello there! – and make Brides Up North as accessible as possible.  I’m always only an email away (get in touch – I can point you in the right direction and put you in touch with the right people for almost any wedding query), but there’s nothing like a good in person chinwag, is there?

.

.

Me at the Tweet Up

Always ready for gossip (at The Brides Up North Tweet Up North West)

.

That’s why I (and my little team) take such time and effort to plan and produce the best (we think!) bridal exhibitions and wedding industry networking events across the regions, so that our readers and industry friends can connect in an environment jam packed with talent and innovation.  And it’s also why I choose to support selected industry partners at their bridal events across the North.

.

.

The UK Wedding Shows at Metro Arena

.

.

This weekend I’m heading to Newcastle to join my friends at The UK Wedding Shows (and watch out for me at their first ever conference later in the year!) for a weekend of wedding wonders at their big Metro Arena event on the banks of the River Tyne this weekend, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th January 2013, from 10am – 5pm every day.  Come and find the Brides Up North team at stand 119, where we’ll be on hand for all the wedding tips and advice that you could ever need – just ask – and giving away some special Brides Up North goodies. It would be lovely to meet you, so drop by to say hola!

.

.

Dandy Events Inspirational Wedding Weekend

.

.

We’ll also be dropping in over the weekend to see our great friends and supporters Dandy Events at their inspirational showroom event on the Scotswood Road.  This is just a stone’s throw from the Metro Arena, so if you are popping into that show, give your groom some sugar and make sure to visit Denise and her team too.

.

So, I’m off to pack the car with goodies and quite a lot of pink…  if you are travelling this weekend too, be safe on the roads, and I’ll see you soon!  And after you’ve walked and sample collected yourself into a stupor, make sure to check back here for this weekend’s pretty posts…

A Wedding Blogger On Tour: It’s Going To Be A Busy Weekend!

February 17th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Whoever said being a would be easier than being a lawyer was lying!  Lying I tell you!  I can’t remember the last time I had a lie in, a day off or an early night… but I love it!  So the show goes on!

.

This weekend is one of my busiest yet, with Brides Up North on tour in the North East at no less than three wedding fairs this weekend.  Drop in and say hello at the Brides Up North stand at one of these fabulous events and bend my ear on all things wedding.  I’m brimming with ideas and whilst I won’t say that I’ve seen it all – I’ve seen a whole lot!

.

First up, this Saturday will see me sharing the love and my time between the quirky As You Like It Wedding Fair and the ever chic Weddings In The City event at The New Northumbria Hotel.  Both venues are in the Jesmond area and a stone throw from each other so why not do as I do and pop along to both?

.

Double the fun!

.

.

As You Like It Wedding Fair

The New Northumbria Wedding Fair

No rest for the wicked on Sunday either, as I’ll be at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead between 12pm and 4pm for The Great North Wedding Show.  This is a big one so make sure to save some energy.  You’ll have earned that Sunday Roast!
