September 2nd, 2014 | Julia Braime

The North West Wedding Fair is taking place at EventCity, Manchester on 26th to 28th September 2014. 

Visit www.theweddingfairs.com for more details. Brides Up North can save 1/3 off usual show prices by entering exclusive discount code NW58 at checkout.

I’ve also got a handful of FREE passes for two people up my sleeves, and I’ll be giving those golden tickets away to the first 150 brides through the door at our own Luxury Wedding Exhibition at Hilltop Country House on Sunday 14th September 2014.  Bonus! Be there…

If you’re a regular around these pages, you’ll recall that last spring (doesn’t it seem like absolutely ages ago now?) I was approached by Mercury Events, the organisers of the ma-hoo-sive North West Wedding Fair, and invited act as their ‘Official Blogger’.  Quite the compliment!

^^^And yes, that is me nervously introducing the showreel above! (dies) ^^^

Now, you know that we run our own Luxury Wedding Exhibitions here at Brides Up North – including two very special events in the North West this autumn – so at first I wasn’t sure… partner with the competition?  Hmm.

But the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. Whilst our events are bespoke, exclusive (and perfectly formed… are they in your diaries yet !?), The North West Wedding Fair is the largest premium show for brides from the North West. Visitors love that every one of their Exhibitors and Partners are dedicated to serving the North West region. Isn’t that what Brides Up North encourages: thinking local?

Also, whilst I can’t wait to see as many as possible of you at our own events this season, I wouldn’t want my North West readers to miss out on the biggest juggernaut of a bridal event to come your way this autumn either.  There’s plenty of room in the diary for us both and what better way to get my brand in front of thousands more Brides Up North and fuel this Northern Revolution even further?

Plus, it was loads of fun last time.  And I like having fun.

Our position as one of the top wedding blogs in the UK – and the only one specifically for Northern Brides – is extremely valuable, so alliances like this one need to be right for us. It is Mercury Events’ excellent reputation in the market that gave me the confidence to join up with The North West Wedding Fair, and I‘m happy to report that it was the start of a beautiful friendship.

I’m back this autumn, reprising my Official Blogger role.

As well as hosting my own features over on the show’s official blog, I’ll also be on site on the Friday evening at the event, tweeting, facebooking and instagramming like mad (from a front row seat on their designer catwalk no less), trying to meet as many of you lovely brides to be as possible and also putting my judging hat on to award the “best in show” exhibitor prize.

Joining me this autumn will be 150 of the most trusted suppliers from Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and Liverpool. The best boutiques in the North West will be on hand to help you find the best type and fit of dress for you and your whole wedding party. 

Ideas for every aspect of your wedding will be on tap all weekend, with stunning Catwalk Shows, The Essential Bridalwear Collection, Favours & Finishing Touches Marketplace, Live Entertainment Stage, Inspired Bakes Showcase, free Tasting Sessions and so much more.

I can’t wait.

#OfficialBlogger Signing Off… For Now…

April 3rd, 2014 | Julia Braime

Brides Up North at The North West Wedding Fair

Made you look?  Don’t worry, Brides Up North isn’t going anywhere!

If you’re a regular reader of the wedding blog, you’ll know that I recently took on a special assignment as Official Blogger to the North West Wedding Fair.

We run our own beautifully crafted Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibitions in the Cheshire area – yes, these ones… do you have them in your diaries yet (you can pre-register for your VIP goody bag here)?

Cheshire 2014

But when Mercury Events invited me along to their huge event at the start of March, I wasn’t going to turn down an opportunity to meet so many lovely North West readers and wedding industry suppliers, or get my brand in front of so many new brides to be either (crafty eh?).  If – as a consequence – you are one of my brand new readers, HELLO you!

In the run up to the show I guest blogged over at their website once a week (catch up on what I was talking about here), and shouted about the upcoming event on the Brides Up North Facebook and Twitter pages.  I also hosted a very special Pinterest competition in conjunction with the North West Wedding Fair, which will see me lend my industry knowledge and sympathetic wedding planning ear to our lucky winner, Steph, who I was thrilled to meet for an initial chat at the event itself.

So, talking of the event, how was it?  Were you a visiting bride to be or an exhibitor?  What did you think?

Me? I loved every minute:  hosting the show’s visitor video (scrambling up onto the raised catwalk in my 4 inch heels and pink mini dress to film a segment must have been a sight to see!); catching up with my industry friends; sitting FROW at the beautiful bridal catwalks; tasting cake; trying on tiaras;getting excited over glittery things; trying a spot of crafting, and meeting so many lovely, lovely brides to be and their future husbands, friends and families.

The highlight for me?  Meeting my Pinterest competition winner Steph and her lovely Mum, and hearing all about her nautical themed wedding plans.  Steph’s winning entry stood out for it’s originality, but also because despite being heavily themed, it was also very beautiful.  I’m looking forward to helping Steph out on her journey to “I do!”.

Official feedback from the Mercury Events office looked good too, with over 2,000 brides and 6,000 visitors through the doors and 122 exhibitors already rebooking for next season. 

Mercury Events continue to invest heavily in establishing this show as a true ‘destination’ event for the whole wedding market across Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire. This season they added the Garden Restaurant, the Vintage Crafts feature, Inspired Bakes: A Wedding Cake Showcase, an improved Catwalk build and show and a more fabulous VIP ticket package than ever before.  I can’t wait to work with the team again going forwards.  Just watch this space for more details soon…

Competition Time. Win A VIP Experience Money Can’t Buy Prize In Collaboration With Brides Up North & The North West Wedding Fair: I Want To See Your Pins!

February 27th, 2014 | Julia Braime

UK Wedding Blog Brides Up North

If you’re a regular reader of the wedding blog, or follow Brides Up North on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll have shared my exciting news that I have been invited to act as the Official Blogger for the huge event that is The North West Wedding Fair in a few weeks’ time.

I’ve already been contributing over on their blog – click here to read my thoughts on this season’s bridal fashions and why you really should hire a professional wedding photographer (I don’t care if your mate will do it for free!) – and will be blogging for the team up till the weekend itself, when I’ll be live from the first night of the event on Friday 7th March, giving you a preview of all that lies in store for you lucky visitors (and hosting the official show video – eep!). 

The North West Wedding Fair

When I announced my involvement with the team at The North West Wedding Fair and Mercury Events, I was quite candid in that initially I wasn’t sure if teaming up with (essentially) a competitor was a good idea, but I liked the company’s ethos and attitude – basically, they want to bring you North West brides one hell of a good show and look after their exhibitors whilst doing it – and I also saw the opportunity to further the Northern Revolution that we have going on on these pretty pages and get Brides Up North in front of a lot of new readers.  If you are one of them, hello and welcome.  I hope you’ll stay awhile!

However, right from the word go what (hands up) started out as a bit of a marketing exercise was suddenly an event in my diary that I am very much looking forward to.  I’m swept up in the excitement and super, duper thrilled to be able to write this post today.  You see, I have something pretty special to share with you, my readers, as part of the Official Blogger job!

Oh What A Day!

April 22nd, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Brides Up North Wedding Exhibiton at The National Railway Museum

.

.

A couple of pints of coffee down my neck and I am finally back in the land of the living!

.

In case you hadn’t noticed (ahem), yesterday was the inaugural Brides Up North Luxury & Vintage Grand Wedding Exhibition at the National Railway Museum in York.  And what a day it was!

.

I’m always super nervous before any big show.  When something has your name on it you want it to go perfectly – how will it work logistically? – will my exhibitors enjoy the day and find it a success for their businesses? – will the space look aesthetically pleasing? – will I get the mountains of admin that comes with any big event done in time? – will I wake up for my 5am alarm call on the day?… and the big one… will anyone come?!

.

I needn’t have worried.

I love working with all my Yorkshire venues and the latest addition to our schedule didn’t disappoint.  This really is a fabulous space: clean, bright, quirky and oh-so vintage.  The National Railway Museum team are great to work with and every single one of my near 60 fabulous exhibitors (I really do feel very privileged to work with the region’s very best suppliers) went above and beyond to make their luxury and vintage displays some of the prettiest set ups that I have ever seen.  Hat’s off to you Yorkshire!

So things were looking pretty sweet by the time the doors opened at 10am (it felt like tea time to me by then!) and I would happily have spent the next seven hours wandering the floor chatting to my lovely friends and admiring their beautiful work, but then…

.

You came! 

.

And in your hundreds! 

.

The brides, grooms and their bridesmaids, page boys, family and friends were out in force.  At the last count we registered 239 brides on the door, and just under 1,000 people in all.  Wow!  I loved meeting you all, hearing your plans and seeing you leave so inspired!

.

These are just a few of my hastily snapped shots of the day, but watch out for some gorgeous images coming up on the blog from our roving photographer Peter Boyd Photography soon.

After falling into bed early last night, I have awoken this morning to an inbox pinging with kind comments from brides and exhibitors alike, and the hard work and planning of the last 12 months all seems worth it.  Thank you all for your constant and unwavering support.

.

The Northern Revolution rumbles on…

.

Fancy doing it all again this winter? Save the date – The Brides Up North Luxury & Vintage Wedding Exhibition at The National Railway Museum, York – Sunday 17th November 2013.

I’ll be talking about it lots more nearer the time, obvs, but in the meantime exhibitors can contact me for details at contact@bridesupnorth.co.uk

What’s On This Weekend? Quite A Lot Actually!

October 12th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

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!

.

Mentions should also go to the Darlington Weddings Bridal Fayre being held at The Bannatyne Hotel in Darlington from 12 – 4pm, with free goody bags, and By Gina’s Explore Wedding Fayre at Woodhorn Museum, Ashington from 12 – 3:30pm. 

.

North West Brides! You Are Invited To The Fable & Promise Anniversary Party!

August 14th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

North West brides, have your diaries at the ready please.  Brides Up North Featured Supplier Fable & Promise have an anniversary open day celebration planned just for you!

.

Fable & Promise North West Wedding Fair

.

.

Charlotte from Fable & Promise says:  Where on earth has this past year gone? Our decision to open Fable & Promise was a bit of a whirlwind and that seems to be how the year continued: thrown in at the deep end on a pretty vertical learning curve. But here we are, a year wiser and going from strength to strength.

.

To celebrate we’re holding a wedding fair open day on our anniversary, 1st September 2012. 

.

We want to share how far we have come with you; how different the shop looks, how gorgeous our dresses are and the brilliant wedding professionals we’ve found along the way.

.

We have a lot to show you… our 2013 San Patrick collection has arrived but we’re keeping it under wraps until the 1st! We are so excited it’s unbelievable! We chose twenty of the delightfully romantic 2013 collection and we’re on pins waiting to see what you think.  Our brand new Modern Vintage collection is also pretty stunning and already turning heads in the few short days it’s been in store.  We’re also really excited by our amazing new Julietta range for the fuller figure. We’re really proud to offer this new collection and now have sample dresses up to a size 32 for you to try on.

.

.

Fable & Promise    Fable & Promise

Each of the exhibitors have donated prizes towards a spectacular wedding hamper. The prize is shaping up to be quite a snatch and well worth a donation.

They are also bringing their Mini Coupe along… they have a competition on to win £5000 and the Mini for a year!

All The Fun Of The Fair! It’s A Wedding Carnival.

March 24th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Roll up for the most exciting North West Wedding Fair yet!

.

Today I’m up at the crack of dawn and off across them there Pennines to take part in my friends Colette and Kelly of All Wrapped Up Events’ Wedding Carnival.

.

.

.

.

It’s a nice change to be attending a wedding fair event as an exhibitor rather than as the host for once – and a lot less stressful, let me tell you!  Whilst I LOVE organising and attending the Wedding Exclusives and Tweet Ups, sometimes it’s nice to well, let someone else do all the hard work, isn’t it? 

.

.

Wedding Carnival, North West Wedding Fair, Mark Tattersall Photography

.

.

The lovely ladies at All Wrapped Up Events have put so much effort into planning this event that I’m absolutely convinced that it’s going to be a grand slam, and I am so honoured to have been invited to be a sponsor of this inaugural event along with some big names in the Northern wedding industry!

If you are waking up in the North West this morning – and more luck to you, you don’t have the M62 to navigate! – and are thinking of tying the knot soon, then why not pop along to the Salford Reds Stadium between 11am and 4pm today and say hello.  It’s a friendly bunch that will be waiting to greet you.

.

I’ll be at the registration desk all day with my beautiful assistant Rachel, so if you are a reader please stop and say hello!  I do love to meet you!
