Brides Up North On Tour: See You This Weekend Newcastle!

January 25th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Occasionally (ok, really quite often – I’m not really one for sitting still) I like to get out from behind my computer screen and head out into the big wide World to meet up with my readers and industry friends.  The online space is great for gathering inspiration, ideas and leads, but there’s nothing like meeting people in person or touching, trying and tasting.

.

Basically, I want to know what I’m talking about, ensure that the content on this blog remains relevant, real and useful to my readers – hello there! – and make Brides Up North as accessible as possible.  I’m always only an email away (get in touch – I can point you in the right direction and put you in touch with the right people for almost any wedding query), but there’s nothing like a good in person chinwag, is there?

.

.

Me at the Tweet Up

Always ready for gossip (at The Brides Up North Tweet Up North West)

.

That’s why I (and my little team) take such time and effort to plan and produce the best (we think!) bridal exhibitions and wedding industry networking events across the regions, so that our readers and industry friends can connect in an environment jam packed with talent and innovation.  And it’s also why I choose to support selected industry partners at their bridal events across the North.

.

.

The UK Wedding Shows at Metro Arena

.

.

This weekend I’m heading to Newcastle to join my friends at The UK Wedding Shows (and watch out for me at their first ever conference later in the year!) for a weekend of wedding wonders at their big Metro Arena event on the banks of the River Tyne this weekend, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th January 2013, from 10am – 5pm every day.  Come and find the Brides Up North team at stand 119, where we’ll be on hand for all the wedding tips and advice that you could ever need – just ask – and giving away some special Brides Up North goodies. It would be lovely to meet you, so drop by to say hola!

.

.

Dandy Events Inspirational Wedding Weekend

.

.

We’ll also be dropping in over the weekend to see our great friends and supporters Dandy Events at their inspirational showroom event on the Scotswood Road.  This is just a stone’s throw from the Metro Arena, so if you are popping into that show, give your groom some sugar and make sure to visit Denise and her team too.

.

So, I’m off to pack the car with goodies and quite a lot of pink…  if you are travelling this weekend too, be safe on the roads, and I’ll see you soon!  And after you’ve walked and sample collected yourself into a stupor, make sure to check back here for this weekend’s pretty posts…

One For My Industry Friends: The UK Wedding Conference

December 19th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Image by Bluelights Photography

.

.

So I don’t like to sensationalise (much) but these last 12 months have been truly epic for the growth of the Brides Up North brand.  I am passionate about our mission here on these swirly silver pages: bringing fabulous local wedding suppliers to the attention of fabulous local brides, helping to connect and build strong bridges between hardworking small business people in the regional industry, showing that the North has style by the paper pom pom load and having a lot of fun whilst we are at it. 

.

And you know what?  It’s working!  You can recap on our achievements over the past two and a bit years here, but all I know is that our Brides Up North branded bridal and networking events are packed to the rafters, you can read our columns in the very best regional and National wedding titles on a monthly basis, we are being invited to participate in bigger and better high profile industry events and that website hits are higher than ever before making Brides Up North truly one of the most popular wedding blogs in the UK.  Hurrah!

.

The Northern Revolution is in full swing, and I’m already looking forward to a very exciting 2013.  More to follow in our yearly seasonal recap later this week (so I won’t go on!), but for now, I wanted to tell you all about an industry event that I am thrilled to have been invited to be a part of. 

.

It appears that this is moving up in the World.  Don’t worry though, I’m taking you with me.  Hold tight!

.

.

The UK Wedding Conference

.

.

My industry colleagues Linda Williams and Bev Howard of The UK Wedding Shows have embarked on a new project to share their knowledge and expertise with other business professionals. The UK Wedding Conference is a very special, must visit event for wedding professionals nationwide and offers two days packed full with informative and educational sessions.

.

The girls say: "The UK Wedding Conference can offer every business the opportunity to learn how to make improvements and how to continue to deliver to brides in a fast paced market."

.

This is a top class educating forum for anyone wanting to exceed customer expectation and to drive their business forward, enabling them to become market leaders within their profession.  Along with networking opportunities that will be second to none, the conference will incorporate workshops and sessions with industry leading guest speakers sourced from within the UK and internationally bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience.

.

You and I will be rubbing shoulders with the likes of; Bernadette Chapman, Kelly Chandler and Sandy Moretta of UK Alliance of Wedding Planners; Tina Reading, Editor at Ultimate Wedding Magazine; Nicky Ward of Guides for Brides Ltd; Heidi Thompson of Evolve Your Wedding Business; Marc McIntosh of Showcase Events, producer of some of the largest bridal shows in the United States; wedding marketing expert, Andy Ebon and Brad Buckles of the Bridesclub USA.

.

You can see my bio along with those of the other speakers by clicking here.  Eep!

.

.

.

.

The twenty three sessions over the two days will be complimented with workshops focusing on the more serious business aspects including accountancy, employment law, insurance and pensions.  A trade exhibition will also run over the two days allowing delegates to shop for services required to enhance their business.

.

Mark the date in your diaries! The UK Wedding Conference will take place on November 4th & 5th 2013 at the International Events Centre at Ricoh Arena in the Midlands.  I’ll see you there.

Super Sunday… And The Winner Of The All Wrapped Up Upcycle Challenge Is Announced!

October 30th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Enjoy the extra hour in bed?  I certainly did! Smile 

.

So, another week jam packed with wedding blog gorgeousness draws to a close.  If you are new reader after meeting me this weekend at The UK Wedding Shows Manchester – welcome!  You can find out more about me and what this wedding blog is all about here, drool over some amazing bridal fashion eye candy here, check out some fabulous real weddings here, and search for the North’s best bridal suppliers here.  I also tend to catch up on the week’s blog posts every Sunday, so you have joined us at just the right time.

.

Stay awhile and browse – the wedding blog is updated twice a day everyday without fail so there is plenty of prettiness to peruse, and if you like it here, be sure to leave a comment or two to say hello as it takes your fancy, enter a few of my giveaways and come back tomorrow y’hear!

.

.

.

So, on with the show.  I have had some lovely tweets and emails from the twenty winning readers loving their limited edition Brides Up North screen printed shopping totes designed by What A Do Weddings and featuring an original photograph from Assassynation this week – filled with some reading material courtesy of Wedding Ideas Magazine and Hitched Magazine and some other (mostly edible) goodies.  I am so pleased that you liked them ladies!

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: What A Do Weddings

.

.

I just had to share a few of the comments left by my readers on the original competition post, as I feel that what these ladies had to say really sums up what Brides Up North is all about:

.

Stacey

September 7, 2011 | I love these totes, and will be very proud to carry one around Newcastle. The North gets a bit of a ribbing sometimes, but this site is helping turn the image around.

.

Stephanie

September 6, 2011 | What a fab idea! I love all the ideas and pretty pictures on here and it’s a breath of fresh air to see weddings from the North with suppliers that are local. Love it!

.

Deborah

September 6, 2011 | I don’t think there is anywhere else that showcases Northern wedding suppliers like this. Most of the wedding magazines have a Southern bias – no good to anyone planning a wedding in the best half of the country!

.

Samantha S

September 6, 2011 | Until earlier this year I didn’t have a clue about weddings, let alone all the fantastic wedding talent right under my nose! I’m checking Brides Up North on an almost daily basis cos I don’t want to miss out on something that’ll give me inspiration or might just be the icing on the cake!

Keep up the good work Julia! X

.

Deborah Cornwell

September 6, 2011 | Rock the Northern talent! Through Twitter I have seen some amazing work by some amazing people, but nothing is more satisfying than knowing it’s from round the corner!

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Upcycle Challenge

.

Its also time to crown the winner of the All Wrapped Up Events Upcycle Challenge – in a nutshell, a bridal inspiration shoot sourced in it’s entirety from charity and second hand shops and comprising various essential elements – click here for all the details.  There were some stunning entries in the competition’s inaugural year – and it was evident that so much time and effort had gone into each one.  You can catch up on the entries here:

.

My fellow judge and wonderful wordsmith Emma Woodhouse of The Wedding Reporter and I deliberated long and hard, but in the end our decision was unanimous – which is a good thing as I think we could both be pretty stubborn if we wanted to be – and our winner is…

.

Team Love My Wedding!

.

Emma sums our decision up well:  Team Love My Wedding is my winner because of the attention to detail, the incorporation of current trends, the cohesive aesthetic, the imaginative reinvention of props and because I flipping love Mary Poppins! But you can probably leave the last bit out… (sorry Emma, couldn’t resist!)

.

I also think it has a charming elegance and exudes romance which, quite frankly, are two of my favourite things when looking for wedding inspiration. I can imagine brides would be able to take a great deal from it and use it in their own plans. There are lots of elements that would work individually outside the theme of the shoot. They also seemed to use a vast array of sources to gather their items from and that just goes to show how much can be ferreted out on a small budget.

.

Yorkshire brides, if you can’t make it over the Pennines, don’t despair, as the lovely ladies of The Wedding Affair are putting on a special event just for you.  Brides Up North usually works with The Wedding Affair to promote and attend their gorgeous events, but sadly as I can’t be in two places at once I’ll be an absentee this Sunday.  Have a cocktail and a slice of cake for me, and enjoy what is sure to be a fabulous and useful day out at this beautiful Yorkshire wedding venue. 

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog:  Swinton Park & The Wedding Affair

The Wedding Affair will be at Swinton Park, Ripon this Sunday 30th October 2011 from 12pm to 4pm.  You can expect over forty superb exhibitors, entertainment, music, sushi, cocktails, birds of prey, a bridal competition to win a holiday to the Maldives and gift bags sponsored by Molton Brown.  Everyone is  welcome, and the event is free admission.

Swinton Park is a castle hotel, an ancestral home and an outstanding wedding venue. Surrounded by two hundred acres of parkland in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, the secluded hotel and grounds enjoy a gorgeous setting.  A wide range of function rooms for a ceremony, wedding breakfast or celebration are available, along with thirty guest bedrooms.  The hotel’s kitchen (which has won some awards in it’s time) places an emphasis on seasonal fresh produce sourced from the surrounding family estate and the hotel’s walled garden.  They also have an excellent wine list, which is very important!

September 24th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

During our chat, I probably told you about this fantastic competition to WIN your Wedding Dress and Bridal Accessories worth up to £1,500 with Brides Up North and the Harrogate Wedding LoungeClick here to put your name in the hat!

.

.

.

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.

.

.
The UK Wedding Shows at Newcastle Racecourse
Saturday 1st, Sunday 2nd October 2011
Opening Times: 11am – 5pm
Fashion Show Times: Saturday & Sunday 12pm, 2pm, 4pm
