Happy Valentines Day! You’re The One For me Fatty! A Real Engagement – Alex & Ged

February 14th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.i love you more than yorkshire pudding

.

Happy Valentine’s Day Brides Up North!  It’s true!  I do!  And I love Yorkshire pudding a whole lot. 

.

However you are celebrating today, I’m sending a whole lot of love your way (and totally buying into the commercial “nonsense” – husband, take note!).  I’ll be snuggling up with my other half this evening at home and taking a very very very long overdue night off together.  Bliss. 

.

I couldn’t let the day go by without a super lovely blog post and Alex and Ged’s loved up engagement shoot by India Hobson Photography does super lovely superbly.  Enjoy!

.

Alex says:  We got engaged at the Christmas dinner table in front of all of Ged’s family. Was a complete surprise! Ged had to borrow his sister in law’s mother’s ring! We are planning on getting married next January, in Rotherham as that is where we grew up.

Our friend India is an fantastic photographer and she suggested an engagement shoot to us.  I’d never thought of it before, but really glad we did it, it was good fun and the photos are AMAZING!  Our other friend is taking the photos on the big day so we are now really relaxed about the outcome.

This afternoon, Viv is back to spread a little love in time for Tuesday with a special Valentine’s giveaway to mark the launch of her new range of cute pieces, created from sterling silver with freshwater pearls and red Czech glass hearts.

Dinner a Deux: San Carlo, Manchester

February 3rd, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

We are heading North West to Manchester for this week’s “cut out and put under his pillow” Valentine’s hints series, to San Carlo on Kings Street West.

.

.

San Carlo 

.

.

If you and your man fancy a night out on the tiles, where you can dress to the nines and see and be seen, this place is for you.  And the just-a-like-a-mamma-made Italian fare is not half bad too.  Fancy recreating the spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp?

.

For a romantic evening with a ritzy twist, San Carlo gets my vote.

.

My picks:

.

Antipasti

.

San Carlo home-made pate

.

Pasta

.

Linguine Con Vongole E Gamberoni – pasta with clams, tiger prawns, tomato sauce, touch of garlic, cream and sun blushed tomato (Yum!)

.

Dolci

.

Tartufo Flambe’ Con Sambuca – choclate coated zabaglione flavoured ice cream

.

.

Now that’s amore!

.

.

If you are based in Yorkshire, San Carlo just opened it’s doors in Leeds too!

Dinner A Deux: The Box Tree, Ilkley

January 20th, 2011 | Julia Braime

..

Continuing our Valentine’s Day countdown, another in my “print out and put on his pillow hints” romantic restaurants series.

.

Did you miss last Thursday’s Dinner a Deux?  Click here to read about The Witchery By The Castle, Edinburgh.

.

So why does The Box Tree in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, get Brides Up North’s vote?

.

.

The Box Tree

.

.

Its cosy, intimate and the food is fabulous.  Once home to Marco Pierre White and now run by husband and wife team Simon and Rena Gueller, like most uber romantic boltholes with a Michelin star it’s not all that cheap, but it is good.  Very good.

.

.

The Box Tree

.

.

Go for a long romantic walk on Ilkley Moor to blow out those cobwebs and work up an appetite, then stick on your best dress and tuck in. Enjoy!

.

.

My picks from The Box Tree’s £55 menu…

.

.

To Get Things Started

.

ROAST HAND DIVED SEA SCALLOPS, SALAD OF SMOKED EEL, BRAEBURN APPLE, AUTUMN TRUFFLE, CELERIAC PUREE

.

The Main Event

.

LOIN OF HOLME FARM VENISON, PARSNIP PUREE, FRICASSE OF WILD MUSHROOM, SAUCE GRAN VENEUR

.

And something sweet

.

CRÈME BRULEE, JUS GRANNY SMITH

.

.

And also check out their special £75 a head Valentine’s Menu

.

.

Bliss.

.

.

To book a table call 01943 608484, or for more information visit The Box Tree website.
