Brides Up North

Diary Date: The Sage Gateshead Elite Wedding Show

March 18th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

We are elated as ever after our headline North East show of the season here at Brides Up North HQ – the Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition at Ramside Hall Hotel.   I was so excited for this event (I may have just mentioned it just once or twice!) but it turns out that something even more exciting was about to happen in my personal life!  So, whilst I was tucked up at home with my brand new baby (all together now, ahh!, and more news soon), my events team were up to something really special. 

.

Reports from the front line tell me that it was another absolutely fantastic day, the venue packed to the rafters with amazing local exhibitors (almost 100 of ‘em) and excited brides and grooms.  Once again, to everyone involved, thank you for your unwavering support and enthusiasm.  Month upon month of planning goes into making sure these shows are the best of the best, with a focus on local talent, so the lovely feedback that I have received by email last night and this morning from happy exhibitors and visitors really does make my heart sing. 

.

You know we’ll back in the Autumn of course, so put Sunday September 8th 2013 firmly in those diaries, and if you are a potential exhibitor who wants to join in the fun (and this little Northern Revolution that we have on our hands) – you know where to find me!

.

Now.  Let’s look ahead.  You know that I couldn’t (and wouldn’t) leave ‘ya high and dry without more weddingy excitement in your lives, right?  So, North East ladies, if you still haven’t had your fill of lace and tulle, there’s an event up Newcastle way that you might just want to pop into… from sponsor Dawn Marie Wedding & Event Design comes The Elite Wedding Show at The Sage Gateshead – and what do you know, it’s this weekend!

Diary Date: NEXT WEEKEND! Mia Sposa Bridal & Menswear Launch Event

January 6th, 2013 | Julia Braime

I’ve worked with long time Brides Up North Featured Suppliers Joy and Mark of Mia Sposa Bridal & Menswear since the launch of the wedding blog way back in 2010, and so was thrilled to be invited along to their brand new premises in Newcastle Upon Tyne recently to see the space for myself.

.

Take it from me, this new boutique is something else!  Huge dressing rooms, lofty showrooms and dedicated areas for bridesmaids and menswear – it felt more like a chic loft in Manhattan’s fashion district than your average bridal boutique.  Get ready to strut your stuff!

.

Average is something that Mia Sposa are not: if you are in the market for a gorgeous gown, with exceptional service levels and are based in the North East, then make Blandford Square the first stop on your search.  

.

And - BONUS! – they also want to ply you with Champagne and canapés as they celebrate 10 years of business, showcase their new collections (like the gorgeous Pronovias gowns showcased in this post – all available on site) and the launch of their new boutique next weekend!

.

.

Joy says: We are thrilled to be showcasing our gorgeous new boutique, latest collections and also celebrating 10 years helping brides and grooms in the region with a re-launch event on Friday 11th – Sunday 13th January 2013 at Blandford Square in Newcastle Upon Tyne – by appointment only.   

.

We have a few bridal appointments left for Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th January and would love to meet Brides Up North readers and help them to celebrate with a glass of bubbly too.

.

We are working with our trusted wedding suppliers Karen McGowran , Daisychain Events , Burnett 4 Cakes, ND Make Up and Greener Interiors who are setting up inspirational displays over the weekend in the boutique.
