It’s been a crazy couple of weeks behind the scenes here at Brides Up North HQ (ok, it’s been a crazy seven years, but who’s counting…) as we prepare to bring you our three most exciting events to date* – our epic festival wedding fairs, the wedfest’17 tour – starting with the glorious WEDSTOCK’17 at Stockeld Park, Yorkshire this coming Sunday 7th May 2017, 11am till 4pm, FREE ENTRY**
*and we create really exciting events.
**yes, you’re not seeing things, these EPIC events are FREE for you and your entire bridal party to attend (just make sure someone else is the designated driver for this one!)
To us, WEDSTOCK’17 is like all our Christmases coming at once… but kicking off the start of summer, with Pimms, and tents, and gorgeous gowns… and ALL the wedding inspiration!
If you’re a Yorkshire bride to be, Stockeld Park is where you need to be THIS SUNDAY, as we transform the popular attraction into a wedding wonderland with our huge sailcloth tent, tipi village, little and large yurts, vintage M.A.S.H tent, PIMMS Bar (in fact, there are a few bars to visit…) street food vendors, live bands, cars and campers, 70 luxury wedding suppliers and so much more. It’s one for every bride, whether your style is breezy boho or super chic. We’ve just made the planning process so much more fun – a real day out, rather than just ticking a box on your planning checklist. And grooms always seem to enjoy this one too…
THIS EVENT IS BIG, BEAUTIFUL AND BRILLIANTLY USEFUL – DON’T MISS IT!
Stockeld Park, Wetherby, LS22 4AN
Sunday 7th May 2017, 11am till 4pm
FREE entry for registered brides plus a FREE VIP media pack whilst stocks last.
Please register for free entry to WEDSTOCK’17 for you and your party.
We’re giving away up to 300 free Bride To Be media packs, sponsored by UNVEILED magazine, filled with glossy magazines and treats from Brides Up North. As demand is high, to pick up your media pack all you need to do is fill in the form below. While stocks last.
If the weather is looking a little dubious on the day (but hey, it’s May, let’s look on the bright side!) there’s nothing to worry about either – all of our structures are perfectly weatherproof, warm and welcoming, so a little drizzle ain’t going to spoil our party. And what a party it’s going to be!
As well as our street food vendors, live music and entertainment, we’ve so many amazing exhibitors and styling ideas on show that you’ll leave with every last detail covered. Any Yorkshire supplier worth their sequins will be at Stockeld Park this Sunday, many offering on the day discounts too.
Grab a cocktail, stay for lunch, and get your wedding planning all wrapped up at the same time. Result.
It’s a fun and friendly day so grab your groom, your girl squad (and even your gran!) and get yourself to the bridal event that everyone’s been talking about. Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair… and we’ll see you on the field for WEDSTOCK’17!
To whet your appetite, or if you came, partied and wedding planned at our WEDSTOCK’16 event last year, here are some official photographs to get you excited or to remind you that Brides Up North do wedding fairs differently… and to celebrate what a great day we all had.

Last weekend we featured all the official images from #WEDSTIVAL16, our epic Brides Up North Wedding Festival at Capesthorne Hall, and told you about how you can get involved in our events this autumn and next spring. Click here to catch up.
Turns out though, that the fabulous Peace Wedding Photography weren’t the only ones doing a bit of snapping – it’s not what you know, it’s who you know y’see – and super talented friend of the wedding blog, Jonny Draper had been capturing the action on his trusty camera for us too.
We absolutely adore Jonny’s images of our amazing day in full swing (and he even had time for an impromptu photo shoot with LOVE Bridal Boutique’s stunning models too – what a backdrop for wedding photos!) as they remind us what a brilliant party it was! We couldn’t wait to share all the shots with you here.

We’ve just put our best ever season of Brides Up North events to bed for the summer (someone pop the prosecco!) and Brides Up North HQ is still buzzing from our final shows of the season, our much awaited – and absolutely epic – wedding festivals.
We’ve already shared our official images from #WEDSTOCK16 at Stockeld Park, Harrogate – click here to catch up – and now our official event photographers Peace Wedding Photography are back with all the images from our North West event, #WEDSTIVAL16, held at the magnificent Capesthorne Hall in collaboration with Shades and Big Chief Tipis.
If you are new to these pretty pages, let us explain a little… based on a hunch that the world might be ready for some massive, festival themed bridal events (we’d either had a lot of coffee or were smoking something strange that morning in the office!) the Brides Up North team set out on a bit of a mission: to bring the North the UK’s first large scale wedding festivals. Over a year in the planning, it turns out that the fabulous Northern wedding industry and our brilliant readers (that’s you) were about to get as (naturally!) high on the idea as we were!
60 plus of the area’s finest wedding industry suppliers at each event, big top wedding tents, tipi villages, bell tent honeymoon suites, arched wedding tents, Party Bales, Baleric inspired chill out areas, street food, a blow up pub (!), a Double Decker Bus bar, vintage caravans and campers, bloom bars, floral selfie backdrops, picnic areas, live bands, trapeze artists… we could go on… each event just felt like one huge wedding planning party. With Pimms. Pimms by the bucket-load.
We had such a blast that we’ve already set the dates for 2017 – #WEDSTOCK17 will take place at Stockeld Park on Sunday 7th May, 11am till 4pm and #WEDSTIVAL17 will take place at Capesthorne Hall on Sunday 21st May, 11am till 4pm. Get the dates in your diaries (and interested wedding suppliers should get in touch using the contact form below). Watch this space for a couple of other exciting dates too… North East, we mean you… and accept no imitations!
Exhibitors will be strictly limited by category and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. We expect demand to be very high.
Discounts are available for block bookings with our other events. Get in touch for pricing, exhibitor info and to guarantee your place.
If you came, partied and wedding planned at our #WEDSTIVAL16 here are some official photographs to remind you that Brides Up North do wedding fairs differently.
