THIS SUNDAY! The Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition At Beautiful Thorp Perrow!

May 11th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Thorp Perrow Wedding Exhibition

.

.

And it’s here (!!) – our Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition at Thorp Perrow, North Yorkshire on Sunday 12th May 2013 – FREE ENTRY – 12pm till 4pm.

.

This is a brand new exclusive use wedding venue and private stately home that we are opening to the viewing public for just one day only – and this you have to see!  Even if you already have your venue booked, this is still for you.  Come and make a day of it, visit our marquee full of absolutely outstanding wedding vendors (the very best in the business, I promise you), enjoy the beautiful gardens, ornamental lakes and the stunning arboretum, and explore the never before open stately pile. 

.

Think Atonement, think Gatsby… and you are halfway there…

This wonderful house has only very recently been opened to the public for weddings (having previously only been used as a private home) can hold up to sixty people for smaller events such as lunches and dinner parties. For larger occasions a marquee can be attached to the house or erected at the front of the house close to the lake.

Preparing To Party… And A Glance Behind The Scenes

December 11th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

It’s FINALLY HERE!  I feel like I’ve been planning incessantly for over a month now (oh that’s right, because I have been planning incessantly for over a month now), and the day of the Brides Up North Christmas Party has finally arrived!  Hurrah!

.

Excitement levels here at Brides Up North HQ have hit quite scarily unprecedented levels – particularly for a Tuesday morning – and I can’t wait to welcome all our party people to the wonderful Thorp Perrow this evening, along with our hosts CWC Malings.  Our guest list has been packed for the whole month, but there a still a few last minute places up for grabs. Click here for the low down.  

.

I spent the whole day at the house yesterday, dressing this stunning wedding venue’s stately rooms and taking part in a bridal fashion shoot which I co-ordinated to show off Thorp Perrow’s glamorous side and that it’s perfect for a winter wedding (provided that it’s huge fireplaces are stoked!).

I absolutely love working on location and yesterday I was particularly lucky to have an amazing team of friends and talented superstar industry suppliers around me.  I am genuinely excited to show off the venue tonight (twinkle twinkle!) and to share our beautiful shoot later on.  Huge thanks to the amazing Twisted Willow Floristry, Curvy Bridal, Joe Dodsworth Photography, Make Up By Jo, Love Hair & Beauty Boutique and our stunning models Ruth and Alexandra for all your support, vision and for lending your beautiful products and skills to our gorgeous cause.  You utterly rock.

Until later tonight, or until I can share the results of our day here on the wedding blog, here’s a little behind the scenes glance at what we got up to.  If you think these look good… just wait till you see Joe’s professional shots, or the venue in real life. I properly love my job.

A Christmas Frenzy! And Some Extra Cheer…

December 8th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Welcome to the weekend !  What are your plans?  A few jars of mulled wine with your mates, a spot of Christmas shopping or maybe, just maybe, this is the weekend that you get wed?! Eep! If you are saying I do – or whatever it is that you are up to – I hope you have the most fabulous one.

.

I’m up to my eyeballs in the tinsel this weekend, as I’ve spent the past month planning our Brides Up North Christmas Party and this last week has seen that activity whipped up into a full on Christmas frenzy, as I prepare – along with the wonderful team at CWC Malings – to host a very special sparkly soiree showcasing a very special new wedding venue to my industry nearest and dearest and my lovely readers this coming Tuesday evening.

.

.

Brides Up North Christmas Party Invitation

.

.

The amazing (and newly open for weddings – wahoo!) North Yorkshire private stately home and wedding venue that is The House at Thorp Perrow Arboretum is to die for at the very best of times, but add a team of amazing experts filling the place with blooms (hello Twisted Willow Floristry, I love you!), song (some Christmas Swing and some Vintage Dj-ing – this you have to hear!), delicious food and drink, games and some added Christmas glitter and it’s going to be Very Merry indeed!

.

And watch out for a very special announcement being made on the evening too…

.

The guest list has been full for weeks (48 hours after we opened it in fact!) but due to popular demand and the fact that I hate hearing sad stories of full up guest lists at Christmas time, this weekend I have been able to open up a few more places! Let’s hear a WHOOP WHOOP!

.

The party is on us, but numbers are still extremely limited and entry will be strictly by guest list. Please make sure to register your interest by emailing julia@bridesupnorth.co.uk ASAP to avoid more disappointment.

.

So, come and make merry to celebrate the season - wedding industry colleagues and Brides Up North readers all very welcome.  Let’s be clear: this isn’t a wedding exhibition or stuffy open event, it’s simply the chance to let your hair down, have a nosy, put on the glitz and mix and mingle with the regions’ finest! It’s going to be an evening of merriment, so bribe a designated driver with the Quality Street first and watch out for some special surprises too!

.

You have to see this place for yourselves – trust me – it’s well worth the trip!  If you want to stay over (advisable: I’ve seen the drinks order!), I have some accommodation recommendations at the ready too, just get in touch.

.

Here’s those details again…
