We know January can be a pretty dull, wet (and ironically dry… anyone regretting THAT decision already?!) month of endurance, but fear not!  Brides Up North to the rescue, spreading sparkle, tulle and confetti covered cheer as our absolutely epic Luxury Wedding Exhibition schedule kicks off for another season.

Have you seen this line up? We’ve been working hard to bring your very favourite – or soon to be favourite – suppliers together under the roofs of some of the most celebrated wedding venues across the North.  And we think we’ve done a pretty cracking job of it!
