Diary Dates: It’s One Busy Week In Wedding Land!

September 25th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

My goodness, it’s a jam packed week for brides to be right across the North this week.  I have events to tell you about in the North East, North West and Yorkshire – and they are big ones too.  Get ready for a bumper week of bridal action and make sure to factor in some recovery time before the Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Fair at The Mansion the week after (did you see this morning’s post?  This is one for the fashionistas, and VIP Bride to be registration is now open! Exciting times!).

.

.

Now back to this week. I’ve already told you all about etc Magazine’s wedding show at the gorgeous Rockliffe Hall this coming weekend haven’t I?  Click here for more details.  But did you know that the fun starts even before that?

I am so excited to be able to announce the full set of Brides Up North Wedding Exhibitions for Autumn 2012 this afternoon on the wedding blog.  The first set of Brides Up North events for brides to be this Spring were a roaring success, with a sell out on quality exhibitor places, record attendances for all venues and a generally fabulous and inspiring day out for everyone visiting (even the weary grooms, who soon perked up on arrival!).  With huge industry, press and online support for this next set of events, I am hoping that they can be even better!

Wedding Fair Season Is Going Strong!

March 17th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

I’m down in the Smoke this weekend for a family trip to support my friend (and honorary little bro) Nick in the final of the Top Model UK competition.  Nick is a recent Brides Up North model – see him in action here – and we have been massively rooting for him here at Brides Up North HQ.  Come on Nick – bring it home!

.

Alongside some FROW action as we cheer Nick on along the catwalk, I’ll also be finding the time to explore the capital – some shopping, a theatre trip, a trip to the park and a Mother’s Day lunch en masse on Sunday.  Sounds a.w.e.s.o.m.e.

.

Let’s all take a breather and spoil our mums this weekend eh ladies?  It’s time to celebrate, snuggle up and regroup as take it from me, next weekend is such a busy one all over the North with some top quality wedding events for Brides to Be that you just do not want to miss.   

.

Here are my three top picks:

.

For North East ladies, pop along to the etc Wedding Show at Rockliffe Hall on Sunday 25th March.  This is a ticket only event and the first 150 callers go completely free (!) so call 0191 501 7114 to make sure that you get yours.

.

This is no ordinary event, as brides-to-be and their families will be given five-star treatment at the wedding show with a glass of champagne on arrival.  There are three time slots for visits to allow you to browse at your leisure.  You will then get to browse the 30+ stands, visualise your wedding ceremony taking place in the elegant Old Hall or glass-roofed Victorian Orangery – which will be set up as if to host a civil wedding – then sit back and relax while etc Magazine puts on a glittering catwalk show.

.

The etc Wedding Show

.

.

For Yorkshire ladies, my friends Lisa and Allison over at The Wedding Affair are hosting their biggest event yet!  You’ll be needing a glass of wine after this one girls! Lisa and Allison have been so supportive of the Brides Up North Wedding Exclusives this season and I wish them all the best with their first – sure to be stunning – two day Wedding For All Seasons event, on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th March at Newburgh Priory in York.  You can register online here

.

A Wedding for All Seasons

.

.

And last but certainly not least, Brides Up North will be meeting and greeting you lovely North West ladies at an event we’ve been waiting a long time for – that I’m sure will be so good that I have put my name to it as a sponsor – The Wedding Carnival on Saturday 24th March at the Salford Reds Stadium.  If you saw the shoot these ladies did to promote the big day (you can see it again by clicking here) you will know that this certainly isn’t one to pass on.  Register here for your free goody bag. 

.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I will see you there!

.

Denton Hall

.

Box Tree Events say:  We are proud to present an event where the emphasis is on providing a unique insight in to what we, the suppliers, have to offer.

.

Rather than the brides and grooms being inundated with endless sales pitches and competition entries from lots of very similar exhibitors – we would like you to sample the fine champagne and canapés, and see Denton Hall dressed to its full potential created by the very best suppliers in the area.

.

We propose that each supplier offers each bride some of their expertise, time and a sample of what they could add to your very special day by providing a consultation area and an appointment system where you can book appointments with each suppler if you wish. No rush, no pressure, just lots of fun!

.

Sounds good to me!  The event runs from 11am – 4pm this Sunday.  Book now for your individual appointments at info@boxtree-events.co.uk

Lemsip #2

.

.

So I may still be snivelling into my Lemsip, but I guess that doesn’t mean the rest of you – and North West gals – THIS MEANS YOU! – can’t have any fun this weekend. 

.

So don’t you mind me.  I’m just simultaneously self combusting and turning thirty, all in one week.  The hubby won’t come near me and I’ve run out of Vicks.  And twenties.  Just ghastly.  

.

Sure you don’t want to stay in and mop my brow/ catch my tears?

.

After all…its only Wedding Link’s The Wedding Show at Tatton Park this Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th January, from 10am till 5pm daily.  I mean, who in their right minds would want to go to this…?

Not me…
