Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition at Allerton Castle Spring 2014

Here at Brides Up North HQ I really do believe that our independent luxury wedding exhibitions are the very best.  Why?  Because, when putting together the very best exhibitors at the very best venues I put myself in your shoesIf I was getting married all over again, who would I want to be involved in supplying services at my wedding?  Consider these events my very own personal recommendation.  You are welcome!

Last Sunday’s event at Hardwick Hall Hotel really did get the season off to an absolutely cracking start, with over 200 lovely brides and their grooms, bridesmaids, friends and family in attendance (that’s almost 1,000 people through the doors… they’ll be needing new carpets soon)!  The venue was bursting with colour, beauty and wedding inspiration, and our catwalks were fun and fabulous too.

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.

Yes, completely free!  Again, no worries!

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.

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.

Were YOU Caught On Camera At The Brides Up North Luxury & Vintage Grand Wedding Exhibition?

April 29th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Booth Revolution at The National Railway Museum Wedding Fair

.

If you visited us – and almost 1,000 of you did! -  at our massive Luxury & Vintage Grand Wedding Exhibition at the National Railway Museum then chance is that you might just have been caught on camera… either messing around in one of our fabulous retro photobooths (these images are courtesy of Booth Revolution) or by our roving photographer Peter Boyd Photography.

.

Hope you had your lippy on!
