Brides Up North: UK Wedding Blog
You know what this Sunday 17th March is don’t you (well, yes, it is St Patrick’s Day, but set down your pint of Guinness for a minute… we have plenty of that on tap too)…
It’s ONLY our BIGGEST EVENT of the entire Brides Up North Spring Season (and the LARGEST FREE ENTRY BRIDAL EVENT in the whole of the North East, to boot)!
Now this event I really am very, very, VERY excited about – we’ll be at Ramside Hall Hotel, Durham next Sunday with over 90 (yes, that’s nearly 100 – you read that right!) of the region’s finest wedding industry suppliers in attendance, from wedding dress boutiques, to fabulous flowers, to event dressers, to magicians, and it’s all there for YOUR benefit. Free of charge (yes, you read that bit right too).
There really is no other bridal event in the North East to be at this weekend – come along to meet, taste, try on, touch, watch our two professional bridal catwalks, check out this beautiful venue, be thoroughly inspired, pick up some amazing on the day discounts and get your – again completely free – VIP Bride to Be goody bag too.
Now, as a blogger and event host, I can say this hand on heart: whilst magazines and online resources are great for inspiration and ideas, there’s no substitute for meeting your potential suppliers in real life and seeing their products first hand before making a booking. That’s why we work so hard to bring the wedding blog to life in the real world at these events: quality suppliers, the best in the industry, local to you – and, like the blog, no entry fee or cover price. Just lots and lots of wedding inspiration from the likes of:

Is anybody else already dating cheques and forms for 2013? No? Maybe just me then! Christmas isn’t even properly upon us and I’m already going mad looking ahead to the New Year, and a very exciting season of Brides Up North events especially for you brides to be coming right up!
After a total sell out and record attendances (hurrah!) for all our ten shows in 2012, my little team here at Brides Up North HQ and I are expanding to bring the bridal lovely to as many of you as we possibly can in 2013. Isn’t that nice?!
We’ve added an extra two dates to our North East schedule, a couple more across our already amazing Yorkshire line-up and we are set to visit the North West and bonny Scotland in 2013 too. It’s going to be an epic road trip, packed to the max with wedding inspiration from the regions’ very finest bridal suppliers at some seriously swish wedding venues. Just the way we like it.
More on the full schedule later, but for now, I wanted to let you know about our first two huge wedding exhibitions in the North East this Spring. These are set to be the biggest FREE ENTRY (yes, that’s right, we’re not whacking on a price tag for our readers!) bridal events in the North East with the cream of the region’s wedding vendors – over 80 per show (closer to 100…). Each show will have two professional fashion catwalks and will be buzzing with exhibits for you to browse and book. The atmosphere at these events is always fantastic, so be sure to note down the following dates in your diaries NOW:

Brides to be, some dates for your diaries if I may!
After just closing a super successful and inspirational Autumn season of Brides Up North events (we do do ‘em best, even if I do say so myself), I can’t believe that we are already looking ahead to 2013 here at Brides Up North HQ. My inbox is already absolutely awash with enquiries from the regions’ best wedding suppliers, reserving their places at what look set to be an absolutely smashing series of Brides Up North shows in the New Year - I think I might be up until the early hours this evening! I can’t wait to get planning, and to see you – my lovely readers – at one or more of our events. Do say hello if you see me!
You know I’ll be reminding you about each and every one of these fabulous dates nearer the time, so for now, just mark ‘em in that calendar, and get on with browsing the rest of the pretty I have coming up for you on these pages. There’s a lot of it…
If you are a wedding supplier reader (*waves hello!*)you can find out more or request a booking form by email me firstname.lastname@example.org – we are working through your enquiries as fast as we possibly can. The sooner the better to register your interest, we work on a first come, first served basis and strictly limit our suppliers by category. Watch out for a few more dates and venues being announced soon too! I can’t wait to add some new regional talents to add to our amazing supplier database in 2013.

Brides Up North: UK Wedding Blog
Get ready for another bumper weekend of wedding inspiration people! There are absolutely LOADS of bridal events across the regions this weekend, but I have a few special shout outs this morning for some great bridal events brought to you by lovely people that I love to work with.
Even though I run my own branded (and rather brilliant, even if I do say so myself) wedding exhibitions, I still like to support my industry friends and colleagues who do the same for me – and plus, I get to bring you news of all the shows that you need to see.
First up, brand new Brides Up North Featured Supplier Beamish Hall are holding a wedding fair this very Sunday 14th October at their lovely hotel in County Durham from 11am – 4pm, and it’s free entry too. If you are still on a venue hunt, make sure to pop in and say hello to the team.
After that – hop in the car and hot foot it across to Belle Bridal Magazine’s White Wedding Wonder Show – at Sunderland AFC from 12pm – 4pm. With 100 exhibitors, some fab goody bags (with Green & Blacks, Choccards, Paul Mitchell, Gosh Cosmetics and organza filled sweeties from Love is Sweet Company) and an opera themed fashion show – this is well worth the £2 entry fee!
My friend Karen at Belle Bridal Magazine has also been telling me about their £1,000 beauty box to raffle for Breast Cancer UK with prizes from Chez Bec, Euphoria and Aruna Seth plus bouquets, cakes and other fabulous jewellery pieces. Stick it in the diaries now ladies!
