Taking a break from the #wedmin are we?  Well, you picked the right time to stop by, because look!  It’s the Brides Up North big bridal super show Grand Wedding Exhibition!  It’s THIS WEEKEND!  And it’s only the biggest event in our whole North East spring calendar.

The region’s best and most beautiful wedding industry suppliers will gather at of the North East’s favourite wedding venue – Ramside Hall Hotel, Spa & Golf Club – on Sunday 18th March 2018, from 11am till 3pm, FREE ENTRY.  

Yep. Free.  With a goody bag on top! Judging by our stellar supplier lineup and our pre-registration figures, it’s going to be pretty epic…

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!

If there’s one wedding fair to attend this year, this is it.  This isn’t your typical wedding fair though, 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.

And NEW for this season, the Ballroom at Ramside Hall Hotel has undergone a complete refurbishment.  Come and check out this beautiful new light-filled space! (And get it booked before everyone else finds out too…)

As well as our two Brides Up North designer bridal catwalks as standard (we’re planning some really beautiful shows with the best boutiques in the area – don’t miss them!), we’ve also added a bargainous designer dress sale area courtesy of The Wedding Wardrobe!

You can also meet the Ramside Hall wedding planners, pose in our photo booths, taste our sweet treats, kit out your man and bridesmaids,  play dress up with gorgeous gowns and accessories (you are going to be spoilt for choice let me tell you!), get lost in our beautiful floral displays, get the hair and make up sorted, source your stationery, 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.

Ramside Hall Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition Autumn 2014

We are so excited to get started with another fabulous Brides Up North exhibition season… and we’ve worked so hard planning and prepping here at Brides Up North HQ this summer that we are sure its going to be our best one yet!

You can view the full schedule of events – spanning three regions over three months – by clicking here. You can use our brand new 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 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.  You’ll leave our events excited and inspired (and maybe a little poorer – but happier)! We promise you that.

Our season starts in style at Hilltop Country House in Cheshire on 14th September and  – did you see the beautiful wedding I featured on the blog this morning? – you have to see this place for yourselves, but for now, I want to tell you all about our biggest event of the season, and make sure its marked in your planner in indelible ink.

If you’re still looking for anything at all for your big day, you need to be at our Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition on Sunday 21st September 2014.  Any luxury supplier worth their sequins is going to be there! Doors open at 12pm till 4pm, and it’s free entry for you and all your guests.  Pre-registered brides will also get to take home a VIP goody bag stuffed with glossy mags, treats from our sponsors and pressies from Brides Up North.

IT’S THIS SUNDAY! The Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition At Ramside Hall Hotel!

March 15th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Ramside Hall Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition Spring 2013

.

.

You know what this Sunday 17th March is don’t you (well, yes, it is St Patrick’s Day, but set down your pint of Guinness for a minute… we have plenty of that on tap too)…

.

It’s ONLY our BIGGEST EVENT of the entire Brides Up North Spring Season (and the LARGEST FREE ENTRY BRIDAL EVENT in the whole of the North East, to boot)!

.

Hurrah!

.

Now this event I really am very, very, VERY excited about – we’ll be at Ramside Hall Hotel, Durham next Sunday with over 90 (yes, that’s nearly 100 – you read that right!) of the region’s finest wedding industry suppliers in attendance, from wedding dress boutiques, to fabulous flowers, to event dressers, to magicians, and it’s all there for YOUR benefit.  Free of charge (yes, you read that bit right too).

.

There really is no other bridal event in the North East to be at this weekend – come along to meet, taste, try on, touch, watch our two professional bridal catwalks, check out this beautiful venue, be thoroughly inspired, pick up some amazing on the day discounts and get your – again completely free – VIP Bride to Be goody bag too. 

.

Now, as a blogger and event host, I can say this hand on heart:  whilst magazines and online resources are great for inspiration and ideas, there’s no substitute for meeting your potential suppliers in real life and seeing their products first hand  before making a booking.  That’s why we work so hard to bring the wedding blog to life in the real world at these events: quality suppliers, the best in the industry, local to you – and, like the blog, no entry fee or cover price.  Just lots and lots of wedding inspiration from the likes of:

.

House of Fraser, Smooch, Snaparazzi Photo Booths, Stem Ginger, Susan’s Bridal, The Candy Stand, The Durham Cake Company, The First Class Wedding Company, The Little Bridal Company, The Master Cakesmith, The Wedding Dress Company, Accent Bridal, AJ Bridalwear, Alan Gibson Photgraphy, Debenhams Wedding Gifts, Elliott McCarthy Dental Care, Eve Photography, Exclusive Wedding Cars, Exclusively Yours, First Glance, Fleur Couture Floral Design, Focal Point Photography, Funky Flower Company, Glen Roughead Swing Singer, Graphic Embers, Gray Events Ltd, GS Studio Photography, GW Holmes & Son, House Of Mooshki, Ideal Photos, Joshua James, Just Perfect, Ken Hills Photography, Kiss The Bride Magazine, Lee Scullion Photography, LG Design Studio, Limelight Photobooth Hire, Little B Stationery, Love Is Sweet Company, Love Lily Cakes,Viroch Elegance, Wedding Pages, Wild Brides At Heart, Xtraordinary Photography, LPG Endermologie Clinic, Merlin Wedding Cars, Mobeus Jewellers, Molton & Brown, Moss Bros Hire, One Digital Image, Party Godmother, Amore Brides, Bar 4 Hire, Bella Sweetie Cake Design, Belle Bridal Magazine, Bridal Beauty by Lydia Jane, Cavanagh Couture, Celebration Cakes Peterlee, Claire De Lune Florist & Events, Damian Hall Photography, Dandy Events, Darlington Weddings, Paul Lytton North East Magician, Pop Up Studios, Posh Chair Covers & Bows, Pure Wedding Stationery, Quills Millinery, Ramside Hall Hotel, Rings By Design, Roger Burlison Photography, Rosemount Designs, Ruby Shoes, Sareli Jewellery, Simplicity Weddings, The Wedding Guide, Think Visual, Top Table Films, Troughear Suit Hire Ltd, Village Photography, VIP For Your Special Occasions, Virgin Holidays and more…

.

So, will we see YOU there?

It’s Here!!! THIS SUNDAY: The LARGEST FREE ENTRY BRIDAL SHOW IN THE NORTH EAST Has Arrived!!!

September 8th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Ramside Hall Hotel Wedding Fair by UK Wedding Blog Brides Up North

.

.

I can’t believe it’s finally here!  Months of plans and preparations have paid off as I look forward to our headline event this season – the MASSIVE Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition at Ramside Hall Hotel on Sunday 9th September 2012: that’s this weekend!  Eeep!

.

We are throwing open the whole venue (two massive ballrooms, a grand marquee and some outdoor exhibits – perfect on a sunny weekend like this one) to welcome OVER 100 of the region’s finest wedding suppliers and all you lovely brides-to-be and your families.

.

I’ve worked day and night (with some assistance from my small yet perfectly formed team of helpers!) to bring this event together and make it bigger and better even than our last show this Spring -  which was a fabulous day packed to the rafters with wedding inspiration and over 1,000 visitors!  What can I say?  I love a challenge!

.

An exhibitor space sell out, the event is now recognised as the largest free bridal event in the North East, and if that’s not worth popping along to, I don’t know what is!

.

I’m thrilled to say that it looks like all the hard work has been worth it as all the elements have come together to make one amazing day.  The web is abuzz with excitement, and the VIP pre-registrations are flooding in.  I just can’t wait to see you all now! 

.

To get your FREE VIP Bride-to-Be goody bag packed with fabulous treats and exclusive on the day discounts worth ££hundreds of pounds (seriously these are too good to miss!) and speedy entry make sure to pre-register pronto, while stocks last.  One lucky lady will also take home a pamper hamper courtesy of our amazing friends at Clarins!

.

To register for a free VIP Bride-To-Be Goody Bag fill in your details below, marking “Ramside Hall” in the subject line and quoting “VIP”. You can collect your VIP Bride-To-Be Goody Bag upon entry to the Super Showcase on Sunday 9th September 2012.

Is it Sunday?  Is it Monday?  Whatever day it is, an extra day to do whatever you like doing best is always worth celebrating, right?!

.

This Bank Holiday Monday, we are joining a collective of North East wedding industry suppliers for a themed wedding inspiration shoot, led by the lovely Rachael of Love Is Sweet Company

.

Rachael, whose magnificent candy floss cart we sampled first hand at the Brides Up North Tweet Up North East, and some of the other fabulous suppliers involved in this shoot will be showing off what they can do at the Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition on Sunday 9th September 2012 at Ramside Hall Hotel.  Have you pre-registered for FREE speedy entry and your VIP Bride To Be Goody bag yet?  These goody bags are literally packed to bursting point with goodies (some sparkly!) and hundreds of pounds worth of on the day exclusive discounts.  Rachael, Alan (Alan Gibson Photography), Paula (Perfection Nails & Beauty), Deborah (Celebration Cakes), Melissa (Magical Events) and 100 other amazing exhibitors will be waiting for you there!

Rachael says:  I organised the shoot mainly to promote and capture some fun images of my new service, popcorn, and really I just wanted to have fun! I went for a carnival theme with lots of bright colours, balloons, sweets, candy floss and popcorn.  I choose to hold the shoot at The South Causey Inn as it has a real country feel.
