Nostell Priory Luxury Wedding Exhibition Spring 2016

We’ve already let you know about our gorgeous North Yorkshire event at Middleton Lodge this Sunday (click here to catch up if you missed it), but to make things difficult for you, we’ve also added a date for West Yorkshire brides too.  Decisions, decisions…

We’ll be reprising our popular Luxury Wedding Exhibition, set in it’s own secret walled garden– packed with the area’s most fabulous exhibitors – at the stunning exclusive use venue that is Nostell Priory this Sunday 10th April 2016, 11am till 3pm.

This 18th century mansion is set amongst 300 acres of parkland and beautiful landscaped grounds, with a curved carriageway, elegant gardens and luxury interiors that make it a prestigious spot for tying the knot. Make your vows as you overlook superb views from The Orangery, or hold the ceremony in Wragby Church within the estate. Clink glasses in the Rose Garden, before heading into the Riding School & Coach House for dining and entertainment.

Trust us when we say this is one not to be missed.  This season we’ve got all the details covered – and more, all under one very beautiful roof.  There’s bridal fashion galore, with some of Yorkshire’s best boutiques in attendance – as well as all you need to get your man suited and booted – live music, flowers, cakes, photographers, photo booths, diamonds (who doesn’t want those?!)… you name it!

This show is a personal favourite of mine, the space is divine and our exhibitors are a friendly and fabulous bunch, but most of all our visiting brides are always so lovely at Nostell Priory. #dreamjob

So, is the date in your diary yet?  It should be.

Allerton Castle Autumn 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 shoes.  If 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 The Mansion really did get our run of beautiful Yorkshire events off to an absolutely cracking start, with almost 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.

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 12th October 2014, 11am till 3pm, FREE entry, and see what the day holds in store.

Yes, completely free!
