this sunday: discover the secrets of saltmarshe hall

September 26th, 2016 | Julia Braime

Some of our very favourite recent real weddings (and you know we get through our fair share of those here at Brides Up North HQ!) all had one thing in common – the venue.  Saltmarshe Hall was a name that kept cropping up again and again in our most stylish celebrations, so we just had to find out more. One thing led to another – as these things often do – and that curiosity was the start of a (VERY) beautiful friendship!

We are delighted to present an intimate Luxury Wedding Fair at Saltmarshe Hall this coming Sunday 2nd October 2016, to showcase the venue and a truly handpicked selection of the area’s most fabulous wedding suppliers. As those of us sporting a sparkler on our ring finger know all too well, the best things come in smaller packages. This isn’t one of our biggest events, but it is one of our best.

This event is pure luxury, an open doors, friendly soiree, to show you exactly why Saltmarshe (and our chosen supplier team of up to 20) is so very special. If you are on a venue hunt, or are simply looking to finalise the last wedding details with the very best industry bods available in a relaxed and stunning, no pressure environment, then you must put Sunday in your diary.

We’ll be showing off our most fabulous find yet – East Yorkshire’s most romantic wedding venue – between 12pm and 4pm on Sunday 2nd October, and as with the vast majority of our events, entry is FREE.

A restored Georgian Grade II listed Hall with a dash of style and elegance combining both traditional and contemporary charm and set in 17 acres of stunning parkland, Saltmarshe Hall is a truly unique place to say I do. The Saltmarshe ethos is to listen to what you want; and we love that they don’t enforce any off the shelf packages, rather letting their couples’ creative input flourish.

All the rooms are licensed for ceremonies and there’s also the option to hold your ceremony outdoors.  The team also promise to never hold more than one wedding per day at Saltmarshe Hall, so that the venue is truly your home – and blank canvas – for your personal celebration.

hey #bridesquad? you’re invited to nostell priory

September 21st, 2016 | Julia Braime

The pretty just keeps on coming…

We’ll be reprising our popular Luxury Wedding Fair, 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 next Sunday 2nd October 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.

#bridesquad at the ready!

August 26th, 2016 | Julia Braime

PNE1365_BUN_wedmin_BlogFlyer

2016 is by far our busiest and most exciting year yet (the team have like, one Sunday off each out of 52) and we’d love to help you and your #bridesquad get your wedding inspo on and see you at one of our very special wedding shows this autumn.

We are proud to be working with some stunning new partner venues this season – watch out for dates at Lartington Hall, Saltmarshe Hall, Chester Grosvenor, Adlington Hall, The Belle Epoque, Hornington Manor, Newby Hall, Cutlers’ Hall and Worsley Park Marriott, to name a few – as well as some well established Brides Up North favourites, like Capesthorne Hall, Denton Hall, Ramside Hall, Hardwick Hall, The Bowdon Rooms, Hilltop Country House, Allerton Castle, The Alnwick Garden, Nostell Priory, Wentworth Woodhouse, The Mansion… the list goes on…

CHP small no logo IMG_5705-115

For those Brides Up North readers who are new around these parts, we have a loyal and local following both on these pretty pages and off, and have hosted over 80 gorgeous wedding exhibitions and soirees since 2012!  We’ve amassed a fair bit a ridiculous amount of experience in this time, and are always tweaking our events and offering (every single event at every single one of our beautiful partner venues is completely bespoke and meticulously planned from scratch each season, we’re fussy like that). We generally hate blowing our own trumpet (modest? us? noooo!) but we really do think that our shows are the very best in the business, and pride ourselves on delivering an amazing and inspiring experience to both our visiting brides and exhibitors alike.

Watch out for new features (like our amazing WHITEHOT designer catwalks at Ramside Hall, tipi village at Hardwick Hall and debuting the brand new Orangery at Newby Hall), plus all the Brides Up North magic and sparkle and sensational exhibitor mix that comes as standard.

CHP small no logo IMG_5706-117

We’re also looking ahead to 2018, when we’ll be hosting a designer wedding experience for brides UK wide in collaboration with glossy Unveiled Magazine. brides/UNVEILED, The Luxury Wedding Show For The North, will now debut spring 2018 at Harrogate International Centre. As an immersive luxury bridal experience spanning two days in this celebrated, accessible exhibition space in the heart of the UK, brides/UNVEILED will aim to bring the stylish pages of our popular media products to life. With bespoke spaces, creative concepts and luxe visual displays like no other, this high end consumer bridal event aims to connect the inspiration gathering process with the professionals who can deliver sensational results. To find out more about attending or to contact us as an exhibitor visit www.brides-unveiled.co.uk.

So, there’s just a bit going on backstage right now, and we can’t wait to share all the fun with you lovely lot. Whilst we sweat over staging and floor management, why don’t you take a moment to have a browse of our jam packed schedule and start blocking out a few Sundays… things are about to get very, very pretty.
