Well, its been an absolutely EPIC Spring season of luxury bridal events, all with our unique and fun-loving Brides Up North spin on ’em (our shows really are the best in the business!), but we’re not quite done just yet…

We’ve already told you about our UNVEILED Wedding Wonderland, taking place at Rockliffe Hall this weekend, but for you Yorkshire brides and grooms, we couldn’t end the season without one last festival-style hooray!

We’re extending the WEDFEST’17 ever so naughtily, with one more pop up wedding festival fair, this weekend at Bolton Abbey lakeside, in partnership with events experts Dine, with elegant canvas canopies – an aurora sailcloth marquee and two hat tipi – by our friends at Shades and Tipi Chic.  THIS Sunday 4th June 2017, 11am till 3pm, FREE ENTRY for registered brides (one registration needed per vehicle),

The event has grown a little since we signed off on our artwork above, and we now have nearly 30 of Yorkshire’s finest suppliers in attendance, and every detail covered for your big day, all under our warm and weatherproof structures (so don’t mind if theres a spot of rain on the forecast… the pretty goes on!) in this area of absolutely stunning natural beauty, in the shade of the historic Abbey.

Occupying a superb position alongside the River Wharfe, this wonderful North Yorkshire location offers a fantastic combination of historic natural countryside setting with the most luxurious facilities. The marquee site provides the perfect place to take in the views of the spectacular Wharfe valley and the Abbey ruins, whilst watching the sun set over the river.

Dine have launched a number of exquisite marquee locations, all of them individual and offering you an exclusive setting to host your marquee celebration. If you have set your heart on a marquee wedding, but aren’t sure of the next steps, come along on Sunday to speak to their dedicated experts.
