Once again, we don’t do things by halves here at Brides Up North!  We are filling the whole hotel – that’s five huge function areas – and it’s going to be spectacular!

If there’s one wedding fair to attend this year, this is it.  This isn’t your typical wedding fair though, it’s a knock-your-socks-off bridal fashion bonanza with all the extra pretty on top!  This is the largest free entry bridal event in the North East area and should most definitely be one for your diaries.

Come and see our two whiteHOT designer bridal catwalks (we’re planning some really beautiful shows with all the best boutiques in the area – don’t miss them!), meet the Ramside Hall wedding planners, pose in our photo booths, taste our scrumptious wedding cakes, kit out your man and bridesmaids,  play dress up with gorgeous gowns and accessories (you are going to be spoilt for chose let me tell you!), get lost in our beautiful floral displays, get the hair and make up sorted, source your stationery, find a top photographer and tick off all those last essential details.  You name it, we can sort it.

I adore this event – it’s big, it’s busy, it’s exciting (it’s whiteHOT!) but most of all it’s really beautiful.  I can’t wait to see you all there for a day of wedding planning heaven… and lots of fun too.

#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…

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.

We don’t just work with any old  venues or suppliers.  Our venue portfolio is carefully managed to offer our readers choice and quality, and our exhibitors are handpicked.  You’ll leave our events excited and inspired (and maybe a little poorer – but happier)! We promise you that.

Our season starts in style at Hilltop Country House in Cheshire on 14th September and  – did you see the beautiful wedding I featured on the blog this morning? – you have to see this place for yourselves, but for now, I want to tell you all about our biggest event of the season, and make sure its marked in your planner in indelible ink.
