Thorp Perrow Wedding Exhibition

.

And it’s here (!!) – our Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition at Thorp Perrow, North Yorkshire on Sunday 12th May 2013 – FREE ENTRY – 12pm till 4pm.

.

This is a brand new exclusive use wedding venue and private stately home that we are opening to the viewing public for just one day only – and this you have to see!  Even if you already have your venue booked, this is still for you.  Come and make a day of it, visit our marquee full of absolutely outstanding wedding vendors (the very best in the business, I promise you), enjoy the beautiful gardens, ornamental lakes and the stunning arboretum, and explore the never before open stately pile.

Think Atonement, think Gatsby… and you are halfway there…

For larger occasions a marquee can be attached to the house or erected at the front of the house close to the lake.

Autumn: Reloved, Reused, Recycled: A Styled Bridal Shoot In The North West

November 29th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Autumn wedding by Adam Capper Photography

.

.

In these last days of November (and now officially on Brides Up North Christmas Party countdown!) I feel like the hours, days and weeks are just racing towards the new year.  Perhaps it’s that we are so busy here at Brides Up North HQ planning and taking exhibitor bookings for our first six (six!) big bridal events of Spring 2013, or maybe it’s this growing baby bump that’s making it harder for me to sit at the computer for long periods of time – but time seems to be flying!

.

With the racing clock in mind, it’s nice to be mindful for a minute or two and take a look back over the gorgeous Autumn that we have just enjoyed.  Mine was chockablock with our inspirational wedding shows at some really beautiful venues, house hunting, meetings for brand growth in 2013, antenatal sessions, Christmas party planning, just a little bit of writing (read: masses of writing) and the odd really lovely wedding to attend in person. 

.

We chose Autumn for our own wedding day back in 2010, and if you were lucky enough to get married this season then I hope you enjoyed crisp blue skies, golden leaves and that magical fresh-start feeling that I think Autumn brings on your big day.

This morning, we join friend of the wedding blog, Rebecca of Pretty Little Trio for a simple styled shoot capturing the essence of my favourite season, with images by Adam Capper Photography

.

Rebecca says:  Since it was a totally glorious Autumn this year, we wanted to capture it and pulled together an idea of a really simply styled shoot at the beautifully restored Victorian Bandstand in Queens Park, Crewe. We had a few dog walkers stop and stare and congratulate the ‘bride’ (we didn’t have the heart to say). Taking the bandstand as our centrepiece and the season as an influence for our colour theme, we also had in mind a reused, reloved and recycled theme.

The vintage china, books and props by Pretty Little Trio are all second hand and so reused, the bandstand has recently been restored, the dress is from Sarah’s Wedding Exchange and has beautiful designer dresses ready to be reloved, the pom poms by Sue Lacey are from recycled paper and the button bouquet from Living Colour has vintage book pages within it. The images taken by Adam Capper have been given a proper old feel by taking original vintage photographs and overlaying their patina onto the images he took on the day, think it makes Naomi look a little ethereal.

Roll Up! Roll Up! It’s A Wedding Carnival!

March 1st, 2012 | Julia Braime

Mark Tattersall Photography

.

.

I was thrilled when Brides Up North Featured Supplier All Wrapped Up Events approached me to be an official sponsor of their Wedding Carnival wedding exhibition later this month in the North West, on 24th March at the Salford Reds stadium.  Er… let me think… go on then!

.

So I’ll be there on Saturday 24th March to meet and greet you beautiful brides.  Don’t be shy – if you are a reader, come along and introduce yourself!  I love a good chinwag and I’m looking forward to it already.

.

To top things off, I was even more thrilled when this fab selection of images in honour of this event and cooked up by a really fab kitchen of North West bridal supplier brilliance landed in my inbox.  Would I like to feature their work?  Hell yeah!

.

Ladies and gentlemen, page boys and flower girls: it appears that the circus is coming to town!

It’s Beautiful Up North! A Styled Wedding Inspiration Shoot

November 24th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog: James Melia

.

.

Erm.  Wow!  As a I see a lot of pretty things, trust me, but I was completely blown away by this stunning wedding inspiration shoot sent to me by James Melia.  The shoot is a collaboration between some of my favourite bridal suppliers and takes place in good old Yorkshire.

.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it’s beautiful Up North. Northern Brides: think local!

.

.

Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog: James Melia

.

.

Natalie from I Am Nat explains: A group of Yorkshire-based suppliers came together to produce this stunning inspiration shoot, which took place at Northorpe Hall, a converted barn in Yorkshire – home to a charity who primarily work with youngsters who have learning difficulties. The venue touched our hearts; not only because of it’s beauty, but because of it’s ethos: when it is booked for an event, the money made goes straight back into the charity.
