Luxury Wedding Fairs With Top UK Wedding Blog Brides Up North

Diary Date: The Sage Gateshead Elite Wedding Show

March 18th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

We are elated as ever after our headline North East show of the season here at Brides Up North HQ – the Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition at Ramside Hall Hotel.   I was so excited for this event (I may have just mentioned it just once or twice!) but it turns out that something even more exciting was about to happen in my personal life!  So, whilst I was tucked up at home with my brand new baby (all together now, ahh!, and more news soon), my events team were up to something really special. 

.

Reports from the front line tell me that it was another absolutely fantastic day, the venue packed to the rafters with amazing local exhibitors (almost 100 of ‘em) and excited brides and grooms.  Once again, to everyone involved, thank you for your unwavering support and enthusiasm.  Month upon month of planning goes into making sure these shows are the best of the best, with a focus on local talent, so the lovely feedback that I have received by email last night and this morning from happy exhibitors and visitors really does make my heart sing. 

.

You know we’ll back in the Autumn of course, so put Sunday September 8th 2013 firmly in those diaries, and if you are a potential exhibitor who wants to join in the fun (and this little Northern Revolution that we have on our hands) – you know where to find me!

.

Now.  Let’s look ahead.  You know that I couldn’t (and wouldn’t) leave ‘ya high and dry without more weddingy excitement in your lives, right?  So, North East ladies, if you still haven’t had your fill of lace and tulle, there’s an event up Newcastle way that you might just want to pop into… from sponsor Dawn Marie Wedding & Event Design comes The Elite Wedding Show at The Sage Gateshead – and what do you know, it’s this weekend!

Brides Up North On Tour: See You This Weekend Newcastle!

January 25th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Occasionally (ok, really quite often – I’m not really one for sitting still) I like to get out from behind my computer screen and head out into the big wide World to meet up with my readers and industry friends.  The online space is great for gathering inspiration, ideas and leads, but there’s nothing like meeting people in person or touching, trying and tasting.

.

Basically, I want to know what I’m talking about, ensure that the content on this blog remains relevant, real and useful to my readers – hello there! – and make Brides Up North as accessible as possible.  I’m always only an email away (get in touch – I can point you in the right direction and put you in touch with the right people for almost any wedding query), but there’s nothing like a good in person chinwag, is there?

.

.

Me at the Tweet Up

Always ready for gossip (at The Brides Up North Tweet Up North West)

.

That’s why I (and my little team) take such time and effort to plan and produce the best (we think!) bridal exhibitions and wedding industry networking events across the regions, so that our readers and industry friends can connect in an environment jam packed with talent and innovation.  And it’s also why I choose to support selected industry partners at their bridal events across the North.

.

.

The UK Wedding Shows at Metro Arena

.

.

This weekend I’m heading to Newcastle to join my friends at The UK Wedding Shows (and watch out for me at their first ever conference later in the year!) for a weekend of wedding wonders at their big Metro Arena event on the banks of the River Tyne this weekend, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th January 2013, from 10am – 5pm every day.  Come and find the Brides Up North team at stand 119, where we’ll be on hand for all the wedding tips and advice that you could ever need – just ask – and giving away some special Brides Up North goodies. It would be lovely to meet you, so drop by to say hola!

.

.

Dandy Events Inspirational Wedding Weekend

.

.

We’ll also be dropping in over the weekend to see our great friends and supporters Dandy Events at their inspirational showroom event on the Scotswood Road.  This is just a stone’s throw from the Metro Arena, so if you are popping into that show, give your groom some sugar and make sure to visit Denise and her team too.

.

So, I’m off to pack the car with goodies and quite a lot of pink…  if you are travelling this weekend too, be safe on the roads, and I’ll see you soon!  And after you’ve walked and sample collected yourself into a stupor, make sure to check back here for this weekend’s pretty posts…

Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside – A Fun Bridal Shoot in Redcar

July 13th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

A Bridal Shoot in Redcar by iPhotographix

.

.

The sun may absolutely be refusing to shine this summer but we are still off to the seaside this Friday morning on the wedding blog.  This fun bridal photo shoot in the North East seaside town of Redcar was sent to me by Natalie of Brides & Dreams

.

And as you are calling by these swirly silver pages in your thousands on a daily basis (and have you joined the fun over on Facebook and Twitter too?) lets try a group exercise in positive thinking: think sunny thoughts, think sunny thoughts.  If enough of us will it to happen, it’s bound to, right?

.

Have a great Friday Brides Up North!  I love you for trying. 

.

.

A Bridal Shoot in Redcar by iPhotographix

.

.

Natalie says: I organised this shoot to promote the Redcar wedding industry to encourage brides to use local businesses instead of going out of town. Alongside the shoot I have organised a Wedding Fayre at Redcar Racecourse to bring the town a wedding show to be proud of (it’s set to be Redcar’s biggest wedding event to date) and show people what a spectacular venue they have on their doorstep for weddings!

North East Dream Venue: Blackfriars Banquet Hall – Wedding Fair Next Weekend!

April 28th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

If you are a North East bride to be looking for a special venue for an intimate celebration, look no further than Brides Up North’s latest Featured Supplier, Blackfriars, Newcastle Upon Tyne.

.

.

Blackfriars Banquet Hall

.

.

A brand new North East wedding fair is taking place at Blackfriars’ Banquet Hall next weekend to showcase the venue and to offer brides and grooms lots of inspiration for their big day.  Blackfriars’ Banquet Hall dates back from 1239 when it was the celebrated venue used by King Edward III for receiving royal Scot, Edward Balliol, in 1334.  In 2011 it was restored by the restaurant owner Andy Hook to bring it back to its former glory and it can now cater for weddings for up to 50 people.  The venue has also just been granted its civil license to hold weddings on the premises.  

.

The Banquet Hall is decorated with authentic banners, chandeliers, wall coverings and stained-glass windows, and furnishings include large oak communal dining tables and matching chairs. Guests can also enjoy the enclosed courtyard for pre-event Champagne and canapés or they can move across to the restaurant later on in the day if they prefer.

.

.

Blackfriars Restaurant

.

.

Although Blackfriars is a medieval venue, couples can theme the day in any way they prefer.  Andy Hook, owner of Blackfriars, says: “We offers brides and grooms a truly unique setting in which to celebrate their big day in the heart of the city and we hope our first bridal event will showcase all we have to offer. In particular we are taking bookings for this year so if customers fancy a spontaneous engagement and a wedding on the same day we are the ideal place. We also have a dedicated wedding co-ordinator to ensure the day runs smoothly.”

.

The wedding fair will be held on Sunday May 13th from 12 noon to 4pm and visitors will be treated to Champagne and canapés to sample the food on offer at Blackfriars as well as 10% discount on food if they book their wedding on that day. Admission is free.

.

Local companies will be on hand to give help and advice on every aspect of a wedding reception from table decorations to entertainment, flowers, stationery, wedding cakes, jewellery, photography, wedding and bridal outfits as well as live demonstrations and a fashion show from Eve and Adam wedding dress hire.

.

Blackfriars only hosts one wedding reception on a given day and to help ease the pressure on the couple, the venue also has close links with its recommended wedding fair suppliers for flowers, cakes and photographers, some of which will be at the show.

.

.

Blackfriars Terrace

.

.

Exhibitors on the day will include (Brides Up North Featured Suppliers are linked):  Little Town Bakery, Flower-Fever, Dusk till Dawn, Simply Bows and Chair Covers, Finishing Touches, Amaryllis Beauty, Bespoke Jewellery design, Daisy Chain Events, Paul Lytton, Gerald Simblet Photography and  Eve and Adam.

.

Contact Blackfriars for more information.

Hello? Is me you’re looking for? A Recap, & A Nomination!

March 5th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Hello?  Is it me you’re looking for?

.

.

Image by Karen McGowran

.

.

I’m waking up this morning on a high following yesterday’s in the North East!  Oh what a circus, oh what a show!  There was a lot of love in the air as over 100 exhibitors pulled together to make the event a fabulous success.  Thank you to each and every one of you!

.

The final count is yet to be taken, but well over 300 brides and nearly 1,000 people turned out to browse, chat, book, taste, try and watch two fantastic professional fashion shows with dresses from some of the North East’s top boutiques.  One of my exhibitors told me that it was the best show they had attended in seven years!  Wow, that just floors me.

.

So what an amazing turnout!  Thanks to all you lovely Brides Up North I ended the day with a glass of champagne and a happy heart (shortly after being interviewed by Sky TV!).

.

If you follow me on Twitter I have been retweeting some of the lovely comments about the day. 

.

A full blog post with some snapshots from the day will follow soon, but for now:  North East – you are fabulous! The Northern Revolution is in full swing. 

.

.

Image By Karen McGowran

.

.

Then… to top of a thoroughly fabulous weekend for this – after VERY many thoroughly unfabulous weekends stuck behind a computer screen whilst all my friends and family were at play – I got a little email that put an even bigger smile on my face!

.

Turns out that your good selves, my readers and sponsors, have been talking about me behind my back…

.

You’ve only gone and gotten me nominated for an award!

.

I am thrilled to have been shortlisted in the Best Wedding Directory category of The Bridal Magazine Awards 2012.  Thank you so much.

.

.

Wedding Directory

.

.

I really consider Brides Up North to be a wedding blog first and foremost, with the Wedding Directory being a neat little add on to help connect my readers to the best regional suppliers, but I work extremely hard to maintain the quality of both sides of the site, so it’s lovely to see the more business based side of Brides Up North getting some recognition!

.

.

Bridal Magazine

.

.

There is just under a week left to vote, so it would absolutely make my Monday if you could take a few minutes to vote for Brides Up North.

.

You can do so by clicking here, going to the Best Directory Category and casting your vote.  You do need to leave a few registration details but after that, it’s smooth sailing.

.

We’ll find out who takes home the gong in just over a month’s time. 

.

That’s all for now – I’m off for a lie down! – but check back this afternoon for a styled shoot that is utter gorgeousness personified!  This week is all about looking forward rather than back, and after a few wallpaper changes and some beautiful features that I just can’t wait to share, it rather feels like spring has arrived.

Where To Start? Top Tips For Navigating & Making The Most Of Wedding Fairs

March 1st, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

So, it can’t have escaped your notice that the largest free bridal event in the North East is this Sunday at Ramside Hall Hotel, and that Brides Up North is at the helm, can it?  (If it has, click here for all the details of the Brides Up North Super Showcase Wedding Exhibition). 

.

When I was a bride to be, I LOVED attending wedding fairs – the hustle and bustle, the masses of wedding inspiration, brand new ideas, the gowns, the bling, the freebies and the general feeling of happiness and excitement floating through the air.  I can hardly believe that the Brides Up North brand has grown so much that I am now throwing my own massive event – and it feels like one big fabulous party!

.

I’m bursting with excitement about the weekend, but I know that as well as being a lot of fun, wedding exhibitions need to serve their purpose too.  This event is primarily about assisting you lovely ladies with the wedding planning process and grouping together as many fabulous local suppliers in one area as possible for you to chat to.  There is something for everyone on Sunday – from boho brides to pretty princesses, cool customers and vintage vixens, and it’s all under one roof.

.

I also understand that 100+ stands over two huge function rooms is a lot to take in.  How to prioritise your time and get the most from the event.  From experience, I tend to waft around dashing from pretty thing to pretty thing, touching and trying and oohing and ahhing, so my advice on this is pretty useless.  To assist, I’ve called in one of Sunday’s exhibitors and wedding exhibition connoisseur Mark of Mobeus Jewellers, who’ll lead you through the labyrinth of lovely! 

.

.

.

.

So lets hear form this seasoned exhibitor, fabulous jeweller and all round nice guy about how to make the most of wedding exhibitions and get the best results from your day out.

.

Better meet the man himself first…

.

.

How many wedding exhibitions have you attended Mark?

.

I have been exhibiting at wedding fairs for at least 10 years so it must be dozens over the years, if not hundreds.

.

.

Why are wedding fairs important to Mobeus Jewellers?

.

At a fair, we can get right to that target audience, often meeting hundreds of people in a day who would not normally visit our shop. That’s extremely valuable for anyone supplying the wedding industry.

.

We get the chance to meet people who want to have a chat about their ideas for wedding and engagement rings. Some people have a bit of an idea what they would like as a wedding ring but haven’t seen what they are after. We are able to take their ideas and make them into their own personal designs.

.

.

How do you make the most of wedding exhibitions?

.

A lot of people are quite shy at first when they visit the stall, so we just ask them some simple questions to get the conversation going. We’re never pushy and just like to get a feel for the couple and what they are after as sometimes it’s hard to describe in words.

.

We see all the different groups – the brides and mums, the gangs of girls together and some blokes who look like they have been dragged along kicking and screaming – but they love it when they get there!

.

.

.

.

Here are Mark’s top tips for making the most of wedding fair season:

.

HEARTPrioritise what is important to you

.

It’s going to be very difficult to get round every stall, so decide before you get there what you want to get out of the exhibition. People often forget about the permanent things from the wedding such as the photography and rings and instead concentrate on the flowers and table designs. That’s fine if that’s your priority, but make sure there’s enough in the budget for the things that will last.

.

.

HEARTFind a supplier you can relate to

.

It’s your wedding, so you need someone who can understand your ideas and what you really want. That’s particularly important when choosing your wedding dress and rings. If you can relate to your supplier and get on well with them, they are really going to work well for you.

.

.

HEARTGet at least three quotes

.

Find something you like, think about it and then get another quote. There are a lot of big decisions to be made when choosing things for your wedding so don’t rush in. Sleep on things – your suppliers will still be there the day after the exhibition. And don’t always go for the cheapest price, look for something you really want and work with your supplier to get the right deal.

.

.

HEARTVisit other fairs

.

As well as visiting fairs at your venue or the larger ones in your area, it’s probably worthwhile getting outside of your immediate region to meet different suppliers – they may have the exact thing you’re looking for.

.

.

.

.

.

Mark and his team of goldsmiths will be at the Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition at Ramside Hall Hotel this Sunday.

Eye Candy: Pronovias 2012

October 11th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Tuesdays used to be my least favourite day of the week.  Ages till the weekend, nobody wanting to go out and I’d used up all the good Sky Plus-ed weekend telly curing my Monday blues.  I’m trying to change all that, by making Tuesdays on the wedding blog a look forward to event – with the most gorgeous real weddings, styled shoots and lots and lots of beautiful eye candy!

.

Other brides’ weddings are all well and good but sometimes you just want to see the dresses, don’t you? I’m feeling a little bit like that today – like, BRING ON THE FASHION!  So, as indulging is one of the things that I do best, today I showcase one of my favourite wedding dress designer’s – Pronovias – collection for 2012, care of Mia Sposa Bridal and Menswear.  Let’s add some Latin flavour!
