Allerton Castle Spring 2015We are nearing the end of an absolutely fantastic season of Brides Up North events (*waves* to all our visitors, suppliers and new readers!) but we’ve one last sensational #supersunday of Luxury Wedding Exhibitions for you to enjoy before bidding you adieu till the autumn.

If you haven’t made it to one of our pretty events this season – or if you have and would like to do it all again (each of our events is completely bespoke and entirely different from the rest) then you need to put this last-chance-date in your diaries.  Because these shows are special…

We’ll be quick stepping it to both Northumberland (The Alnwick Garden) and North Yorkshire (Allerton Castle) this Sunday 26th April 2015, to bring more Brides Up North readers than ever before one huge dose of wedding inspiration at two of the most beautiful venues around, all in one go!
