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 super showcase!  This is officially the largest free entry bridal event in the North East area and should most definitely be one for your diaries.
