Sunshine Sunday At Middleton Lodge

May 22nd, 2014 | Julia Braime

Hayley Baxter Photography Middleton Lodge

The sun really was shining on our glorious Super Sunday of Brides Up North wedding exhibitions last weekend at our two very lovely outdoor wedding venues – the extraordinary Alnwick Garden in Northumberland and the so very special Middleton Lodge, near Richmond.

This is the first time that the Brides Up North team has produced two bridal events on the very same day – and I won’t pretend that I wasn’t a little angst-y – but I’m so proud to say that with a lot of planning, behind the scenes elbow grease and hard, hard, work, everything came together perfectly to make for one bumper day of “real life” wedding inspiration for our readers.  Yay!

The team was split on Sunday, so whilst Kate and the girls hosted our beautiful exhibition in sunny Alnwick, I was in Richmond, getting busy with the pretty and trying my very best not to stop for a sneaky sunbathe (I may have snuck in a few cheeky ice creams).

Any brand new event (this was our first show at Middleton) is always more tricky than a tried and tested formula, but our amazing exhibitors and the practically perfect (oh, go on them, completely perfect) events team at the venue stepped things up to make this one of our loveliest days yet. 

As luck would have it, friend of the wedding blog Hayley Baxter Photography popped in with her trusty Canon to take some shots of our gorgeous set up and this stunning venue bathed in sunshine.  Divine.

How better to follow that one up than glorious state rooms of the absolutely knock em’ dead venue that is Allerton Castle

Each venue in our handpicked portfolio of events is completely different and entirely special, and I can’t wait to welcome you all to Allerton Castle this coming Sunday 2nd March 2014, 12pm till 4pm, FREE entry, and see what the day holds in store.

STOP PRESS! Announcing A Brand New Brides Up North Venue For Spring 2014!

February 17th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Surprise!

Here at Brides Up North HQ we are gearing up to launch our spring season of luxury branded wedding exhibitions this very Sunday.  Eeeeep!  It’s all systems go: preparing show plans and exhibitor layouts, editing event stationery, pulling together fashion show choreography, packing goody bags, coordinating staffing, signage, baby sitters (!), picking an outfit (well, one has to look the part)… and trying not to get distracted by all the wedding pretty I’m also curating for these pages.  Focus, Julia, focus. 

Middleton Lodge Wedding By Helen Russell Photography

We can’t wait to get the season started with our big and brilliant Bridal Bonanza Grand Wedding Exhibition at the very, very lovely Hardwick Hall Hotel this Sunday 23rd February (swiftly followed by the stunning Allerton Castle and our mahoosive Super Showcase at Ramside Hall Hotel in quick succession on Sunday 2nd March and Sunday 9th March respectively – in fact, click here for the full line up – there’s lots)!  But first, we have one more extra special date and venue to announce and add to what I think is a pretty damn special spring season line up.

Did You Get Mighty Boof’ed With Brides Up North?!

November 4th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Image (c) The Bowdon Rooms

Don’t panic, boof’ing is not the new twerking.  It’s better. 

I’m writing this pretty late on Sunday night (ready to greet you on Monday morning) after an absolutely fantastic day in Altrincham for our Luxury & Vintage Wedding Exhibition at the beautiful Bowdon Rooms.

The snapshot above will give you a sense of the day – fun, friendly, fabulous and full of heart and soul.  This unique venue was transformed into a warm and welcoming vintage winter wonderland, and really was decked to the nines with twinkle, blooms and candlelight… as well as a full house of absolutely brilliant local exhibitors (only the best for my readers!). 

Image (c) Charlotte Eve via Instagram

It felt like one big party: with music from Minerva Ensemble, It’s A Wind Up and the brilliant Dominic Halpin Band keeping our feet tapping, loads of yummy cake samples from the likes of Pink Cocoa, Marie Antoinette Cakes and Cheshire Cat Cake Company, pretty glitzy things from Ophelia May, Cool Joolz and LCH Jewellery, lace loveliness (you should see these frocks!) from LOVE Bridal Boutique, vintage garden games, a retro booth and the rest!

And even if I do say so myself, we throw the best parties. 

And the best wedding exhibitions. 

Image (c) Brides Up North via Instagram

The next date at The Bowdon Rooms is booked – Sunday 27th April 2014 (!) – but I can’t think beyond a good night’s sleep just yet, so there’ll be more news on that later on.  Our last bridal exhibition of the season is at The National Railway Museum, York in just under two weeks time on Sunday 17th November 2013 (it’s going to be a biggie, we are closing the year with the grand finale!) so if you haven’t experienced the magic yet, get the date in your diaries, I’d love to see you there.  Click here to pre-register.

In the meantime, it’s time to come full circle to The Mighty Boof.  Did you step inside our fabulous photo booth at The Bowdon Rooms?  Be afraid.  Be very afraid.

THIS SUNDAY! The Brides Up North Vintage Wedding Exhibition At The Bowdon Rooms, Cheshire

May 17th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

The Bowdon Rooms Vintage Wedding Exhibition

.

Are you ready to rock and roll Cheshire?!

.

I’m headed North West this evening to get things ready for our first ever show in the region this Sunday at the unique venue that is The Bowdon Rooms in Altrincham.  Just the right side of retro, with amazing vintage features set into high, high ceiling, a sprung dance floor for jiving the night away, spot on location and plenty of room – this venue is the business.  I can’t wait to pack it to the rafters with wedding industry talent and give it a special vintage twist this Sunday. 

.

Come along and see Brides Up North and our fabulous exhibitors (plus a few exciting surprises – wait and see!) this Sunday 19th May 2013.  If you are looking for an authentic and friendly venue with a real vintage vibe, yet big enough to hold a proper party – this is for you.  We are open from 12pm – 4pm and entry is FREE!
