.

During our chat, I probably told you about this fantastic competition to WIN your Wedding Dress and Bridal Accessories worth up to £1,500 with Brides Up North and the Harrogate Wedding LoungeClick here to put your name in the hat!

.

Right now, after a day on the stand, my little legs are killing me, so I’m off for a hot bubbly bath (and a glass of wine!).  But first, let me tell you about the next event I’ll be attending as a guest of the UK Wedding Shows, this time at Newcastle Racecourse. 

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: The UK Wedding Shows

.

.

Now entering its sixth year at this venue, The UK Wedding Shows will be exhibiting in the Tattersall Suite on the 1st and 2nd October 2011. Newcastle Racecourse has over 120 years of heritage and the Branding House Grade II listed building is at the heart of High Gosforth Park set in 800 acres. This venue attracts exhibitors from across the North East and is popular with couples who can meet with sixty companies attending the show.

.

Linda Williams, MD at The UK Wedding Shows, has been organising wedding shows since 1985 and in the process has seen first hand how overwhelming it can be to make all of the wedding arrangements and find the products and services that you need.  She decided to create shows that would have everything in one place, from entertainment to dresses with the aim to make it easier for brides to create their special day.

.
The UK Wedding Shows now organise exhibitions throughout the UK and cater for 1000’s of brides. The shows include exhibitors from all over the wedding industry and their award winning fashion shows feature the latest in stunning bridal gown designs, men’s formal hire and ladies occasion wear, with major high street names alongside individual designers. The UK Wedding Shows also make a conscious decision to employ models who do not all conform to the stereotype, believing that every bride can look amazing on her wedding day.

.

This wedding blogger will be taking the wedding blog officially on tour this autumn at all the best wedding events across the North of the UK.  I can’t wait to meet all you lovely brides to be and catch up with my wedding industry friends. Northern talent ROCKS, don’t you know! 

.

To warm up, I am proud to support LRS Events at their Summer In The City Wedding Fair at The Caledonian Hotel, Osborne Road, Jesmond, Newcastle Upon Tyne on Sunday 21st August 2011.  I’ll be joining more than 50 of the region’s premier suppliers from 12pm – 4pm.

.

Apparently their last fair was buzzing with Brides Up North readers!

.

Why not pop down and see me, load up on the sugar (I always have plenty of treats on my stand – mainly to keep the grooms alive) and get the low down on some industry insider info that only a well connected wedding blogger could know.  I can’t wait to meet you all!
