Excitement is building at Brides Up North HQ and there’s a frisson of confetti in the air.
Is it really that time again?
We are so excited to get started with another fabulous Brides Up North exhibition season, and this spring, it’s going to be bigger, busier and more beautiful than ever.
You can view the full schedule of events – spanning three regions (North East, North West and Yorkshire) over three months - by clicking here.

You can even register for more than one event if you like – each is very different and we’ve made sure that there is something to delight everyone!
We’ve said it before but 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. We cover every detail – dresses, menswear, stationery, cars, photographers, videographers, rings, accessories, bridesmaids, finishing touches, entertainment, photobooths, love lights, flowers, favours, hair and beauty… the list goes on. You’ll leave our events excited and inspired (and maybe a little poorer – but happier)! We promise you that.
