What’s On This Weekend? Quite A Lot Actually!

October 12th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Get ready for another bumper weekend of wedding inspiration people!  There are absolutely LOADS of bridal events across the regions this weekend, but  I have a few special shout outs this morning for some great bridal events brought to you by lovely people that I love to work with. 

.

Even though I run my own branded (and rather brilliant, even if I do say so myself) wedding exhibitions, I still like to support my industry friends and colleagues who do the same for me – and plus, I get to bring you news of all the shows that you need to see.

.

First up, brand new Brides Up North Featured Supplier are holding a wedding fair this very Sunday 14th October at their lovely hotel in County Durham from 11am – 4pm, and it’s free entry too.  If you are still on a venue hunt, make sure to pop in and say hello to the team. 

.

After that – hop in the car and hot foot it across to Belle Bridal Magazine’s White Wedding Wonder Show – at Sunderland AFC from 12pm – 4pm.  With 100 exhibitors, some fab goody bags (with Green & Blacks, Choccards, Paul Mitchell, Gosh Cosmetics and organza filled sweeties from Love is Sweet Company) and an opera themed fashion show – this is well worth the £2 entry fee!

My friend Karen at Belle Bridal Magazine has also been telling me about their £1,000 beauty box to raffle for Breast Cancer UK with prizes from Chez Bec, Euphoria and Aruna Seth plus bouquets, cakes and other fabulous jewellery pieces.  Stick it in the diaries now ladies!

.

Mentions should also go to the Darlington Weddings Bridal Fayre being held at The Bannatyne Hotel in Darlington from 12 – 4pm, with free goody bags, and By Gina’s Explore Wedding Fayre at Woodhorn Museum, Ashington from 12 – 3:30pm.

The team say: Here at Weddinglink, we love weddings!

.

For 16 years now, we’ve been producing Cheshire & Lancashire BRIDE Magazine, planning the annual Wedding Show at Tatton Park, and organising our seasonal Wedding Fayres. So when it comes to all things ‘wedding’, we really have got it covered!

.

We organise around 30 Wedding Fayres a year around Cheshire and Manchester. Our Autumn Wedding Fayre season begins on Sunday 2nd September, and then we have two events each Sunday throughout September and October.

We are lucky enough to work with some of the North West’s most beautiful wedding venues. All of our venues are handpicked to ensure a stunning setting that is a real inspiration to brides and grooms.

From spectacular stately homes and picturesque country estates, to stylish 5 star hotels, we have a fayre venue to suit any wedding day.

.

We also ensure that the exhibitors at each fayre are tailored to suit the venue, so brides and grooms are sure to find just the right wedding specialists for their big day.

.

Our exhibitors really are some of the most talented wedding professionals in the North West; we never fail to be impressed by their endless creativity and fantastic new ideas! They are also lovely people who are always more than happy to help and advise the brides and grooms who come to our fayres.

.

At each of our fayres, we always have two fabulous catwalk shows featuring inspirational bridal gowns, menswear and ladieswear. We also have live entertainment throughout the day. The fayres are also a great opportunity to pick up a copy of our Cheshire and Lancashire BRIDE Magazine – the bride’s bible for the North West!

.

.

At the majority of our fayres, East Cheshire Registrars join us for the day and conduct a Marriage Ceremony Presentation, which gives brides a great idea of what it would be like to get married at that particular venue. The Ceremony Presentations are dependent on the venue though, so if you would like further details, please get in touch with Hannah at Weddinglink (hannah.ward@archant.co.uk).

.

Entry to our fayres is free of charge, and parking on the day is usually free too. There is no need to buy a ticket.

.

We look forward to seeing you soon,

January 24th, 2012 | Julia Braime

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…
