Ramside Hall Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition Autumn 2014

We are so excited to get started with another fabulous Brides Up North exhibition season… and we’ve worked so hard planning and prepping here at Brides Up North HQ this summer that we are sure its going to be our best one yet!

You can view the full schedule of events – spanning three regions over three months - by clicking here. You can use our brand new drop down menu to browse, select the event of your choice, pre-register for free entry and your VIP goody bag and pop the date in your diary.  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 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.

If you’re still looking for anything at all for your big day, you need to be at our Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition on Sunday 21st September 2014.  Any luxury supplier worth their sequins is going to be there! Doors open at 12pm till 4pm, and it’s free entry for you and all your guests.  Pre-registered brides will also get to take home a VIP goody bag stuffed with glossy mags, treats from our sponsors and pressies from Brides Up North.

IT’S THIS SUNDAY! The Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition At Ramside Hall Hotel!

March 15th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Ramside Hall Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition Spring 2013

.

.

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)!

.

Hurrah!

.

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:

.

House of Fraser, Smooch, Snaparazzi Photo Booths, Stem Ginger, Susan’s Bridal, The Candy Stand, The Durham Cake Company, The First Class Wedding Company, The Little Bridal Company, The Master Cakesmith, The Wedding Dress Company, Accent Bridal, AJ Bridalwear, Alan Gibson Photgraphy, Debenhams Wedding Gifts, Elliott McCarthy Dental Care, Eve Photography, Exclusive Wedding Cars, Exclusively Yours, First Glance, Fleur Couture Floral Design, Focal Point Photography, Funky Flower Company, Glen Roughead Swing Singer, Graphic Embers, Gray Events Ltd, GS Studio Photography, GW Holmes & Son, House Of Mooshki, Ideal Photos, Joshua James, Just Perfect, Ken Hills Photography, Kiss The Bride Magazine, Lee Scullion Photography, LG Design Studio, Limelight Photobooth Hire, Little B Stationery, Love Is Sweet Company, Love Lily Cakes,Viroch Elegance, Wedding Pages, Wild Brides At Heart, Xtraordinary Photography, LPG Endermologie Clinic, Merlin Wedding Cars, Mobeus Jewellers, Molton & Brown, Moss Bros Hire, One Digital Image, Party Godmother, Amore Brides, Bar 4 Hire, Bella Sweetie Cake Design, Belle Bridal Magazine, Bridal Beauty by Lydia Jane, Cavanagh Couture, Celebration Cakes Peterlee, Claire De Lune Florist & Events, Damian Hall Photography, Dandy Events, Darlington Weddings, Paul Lytton North East Magician, Pop Up Studios, Posh Chair Covers & Bows, Pure Wedding Stationery, Quills Millinery, Ramside Hall Hotel, Rings By Design, Roger Burlison Photography, Rosemount Designs, Ruby Shoes, Sareli Jewellery, Simplicity Weddings, The Wedding Guide, Think Visual, Top Table Films, Troughear Suit Hire Ltd, Village Photography, VIP For Your Special Occasions, Virgin Holidays and more…

.

So, will we see YOU there?

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:
