it’s another #supersunday weekend!

April 8th, 2015 | Julia Braime

Middleton Lodge Spring 2015

Excitement levels are at a near all time high in the Brides Up North office this week (and its not due to over consumption of Easter sugar either) for this weekend we have another epic #supersunday instalment of fabulous wedding events to bring to our readers across the regions.

This Sunday its another double whammy of wedding pretty with two of our most brilliant venues packed to the rafters with the most sensational exhibitors in your area.  Our supplier places are limited, varied and sell out months in advance, and there’s a reason for that: we work with the best.  If you are looking for the most special locations with the highest quality suppliers for your wedding day – you need to keep this Sunday free.

First up, the doors open early at,

nostell priory

Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition

Sunday 12th April 2015

Nostell Priory, Wakefield

11am – 3pm

FREE ENTRY

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, event dressers, flash motors, photographers, photo booths, diamonds (who doesn’t want those?!)… you name it!

You can also meet with the amazing and inspirational venue managers, Dine, and enjoy tours of the stunning ceremony room and rose gardens before returning to the refurbished Riding School event space to get your wedding inspiration on!

Nostell Priory Spring 2015

…and welcome to Nostell.

After five straight weeks of brilliant bridal events (and double the inspiration with two events in a day last weekend) you’d think we’d be flagging.  Of course not.  We’ve got Northern stamina and the Brides Up North team are ready to bring on even more pretty!

We’ll be reprising our popular event – packed with the area’s most fabulous exhibitors – at the stunning exclusive use venue that is Nostell Priory in just under a fortnight’s time!

Trust me when I 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, event dressers, flash motors, photographers, photo booths, diamonds (who doesn’t want those?!)… you name it!

You can also meet with the venue managers, Dine, and enjoy tours of the stunning ceremony room and rose gardens before returning to the refurbished Riding School event space to get your wedding inspiration on!

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 the visiting brides are always so lovely at Nostell Priory. It’s a happy job we do here at Brides Up North.

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!

One of my very favourite events in our entire calendar, the Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition at Allerton Castle really is that – pure luxury.  Even if you’ve already booked your wedding venue, come along to meet and seek inspiration from the region’s very finest wedding industry suppliers.  Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
