Popcake Kitchen made me my very own batch back in March and fed the hordes at the Brides Up North Tweet Up North East too, so they get my vote.

Right now, after a day on the stand, my little legs are killing me, so I’m off for a hot bubbly bath (and a glass of wine!).  But first, let me tell you about the next event I’ll be attending as a guest of the UK Wedding Shows, this time at Newcastle Racecourse. 

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: The UK Wedding Shows

.

.

Now entering its sixth year at this venue, The UK Wedding Shows will be exhibiting in the Tattersall Suite on the 1st and 2nd October 2011. Newcastle Racecourse has over 120 years of heritage and the Branding House Grade II listed building is at the heart of High Gosforth Park set in 800 acres. This venue attracts exhibitors from across the North East and is popular with couples who can meet with sixty companies attending the show.

.

Linda Williams, MD at The UK Wedding Shows, has been organising wedding shows since 1985 and in the process has seen first hand how overwhelming it can be to make all of the wedding arrangements and find the products and services that you need.  She decided to create shows that would have everything in one place, from entertainment to dresses with the aim to make it easier for brides to create their special day.

.
The UK Wedding Shows now organise exhibitions throughout the UK and cater for 1000’s of brides. The shows include exhibitors from all over the wedding industry and their award winning fashion shows feature the latest in stunning bridal gown designs, men’s formal hire and ladies occasion wear, with major high street names alongside individual designers. The UK Wedding Shows also make a conscious decision to employ models who do not all conform to the stereotype, believing that every bride can look amazing on her wedding day.

.

Opening Times: 11am – 5pm

Tis The Season! (And a VERY SPECIAL Save The Date!)

September 15th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Well, well, well, no sooner than you start blogging the words “autumn, new collections, back to school and winter weddings”  than wedding fair season is upon us! 

.

I am ridiculously over excited very excited to announce some all new Events for Spring 2012.  Eeeeep!

.

And these events are especially for YOU, my lovely Brides To Be!

.

I have been working hard behind the scenes at Brides Up North to bring my readers some special wedding showcase events with a difference.  Working with some of the North’s best wedding venues, I am handpicking the region’s finest talent, adding a mighty dash of blogosphere inspiration, a dollop of DIY, a good splash of glamour and mixing it all up with some fantastic giveaways and discounts.  I hope to add the fun, uniqueness and most importantly the quality back into your wedding planning process.  So pretty please save the dates, and watch out for more details very soon. 

 

As well as the top wedding talent from across the North, I will be at each event hosting my very own “Meet The ” sessions (I would like it to take the form of a very pretty blogger’s tea party… but lets wait and see!).  Since I spend pretty much every moment of every day researching, sourcing, talking about, living, breathing and sleeping wedding loveliness,  I have a lot to say on the subject.  For ideas, inspiration, top tips, insider knowledge or even just a nod in the right direction – come and say hello and pick my brains.

Diaries at the ready girls – you do not want to miss these!
