It’s The Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition At Nostell Priory – THIS SUNDAY!

October 11th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Nostell Priory Luxury Wedding Exhibition Autumn 2013

Well, well, well  it’s been one exciting week so far – a fantastic show last weekend at the gorgeous The Mansion in Roundhay Park where over 160 brides and their families turned out to meet our fabulous exhibitors, then a blink and you’ll miss it trip to London to pick up our first ever Wedding Blog Award for “Best Big Day Inspiration” from National glossy Wedding Magazine. It’s all a bit of a blur, really.  Is it really only Wednesday?!

Lucky for us, the weekend isn’t going to end on an anti-climax, as we’ve got our really rather lovely luxury wedding exhibition at the beautiful, exclusive use venue that is Nostell Priory this Sunday.  Hurrah!

Oh What A Day!

April 22nd, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Brides Up North Wedding Exhibiton at The National Railway Museum

.

.

A couple of pints of coffee down my neck and I am finally back in the land of the living!

.

In case you hadn’t noticed (ahem), yesterday was the inaugural Brides Up North Luxury & Vintage Grand Wedding Exhibition at the National Railway Museum in York.  And what a day it was!

.

I’m always super nervous before any big show.  When something has your name on it you want it to go perfectly – how will it work logistically? – will my exhibitors enjoy the day and find it a success for their businesses? – will the space look aesthetically pleasing? – will I get the mountains of admin that comes with any big event done in time? – will I wake up for my 5am alarm call on the day?… and the big one… will anyone come?!

.

I needn’t have worried.

I love working with all my Yorkshire venues and the latest addition to our schedule didn’t disappoint.  This really is a fabulous space: clean, bright, quirky and oh-so vintage.  The National Railway Museum team are great to work with and every single one of my near 60 fabulous exhibitors (I really do feel very privileged to work with the region’s very best suppliers) went above and beyond to make their luxury and vintage displays some of the prettiest set ups that I have ever seen.  Hat’s off to you Yorkshire!

So things were looking pretty sweet by the time the doors opened at 10am (it felt like tea time to me by then!) and I would happily have spent the next seven hours wandering the floor chatting to my lovely friends and admiring their beautiful work, but then…

.

You came! 

.

And in your hundreds! 

.

The brides, grooms and their bridesmaids, page boys, family and friends were out in force.  At the last count we registered 239 brides on the door, and just under 1,000 people in all.  Wow!  I loved meeting you all, hearing your plans and seeing you leave so inspired!

.

These are just a few of my hastily snapped shots of the day, but watch out for some gorgeous images coming up on the blog from our roving photographer Peter Boyd Photography soon.

After falling into bed early last night, I have awoken this morning to an inbox pinging with kind comments from brides and exhibitors alike, and the hard work and planning of the last 12 months all seems worth it.  Thank you all for your constant and unwavering support.

.

The Northern Revolution rumbles on…

.

Fancy doing it all again this winter? Save the date – The Brides Up North Luxury & Vintage Wedding Exhibition at The National Railway Museum, York – Sunday 17th November 2013.

I’ll be talking about it lots more nearer the time, obvs, but in the meantime exhibitors can contact me for details at contact@bridesupnorth.co.uk

Diary Date: Say “I Do” At The Deep!

January 16th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

The Deep

.

.

Are you a Yorkshire bride searching for a quirky and unique wedding venue that can still provide a tailored wedding package?  Look no further than Brides Up North sponsor The Deep, Hull. 

.

There’s nothing fishy about it… (yep, I went there).

.

Becky, at The Deep says: When you think of The Deep, you probably just imagine an aquarium in the city centre filled with children. But what many people don’t realise is that we are licensed to hold weddings, civil ceremonies and receptions. We provide a range of options for people seeking an unforgettable and unique venue for their wedding.

.

Couples can get married at some fantastic locations within the building, including in front of our Endless Ocean tank with sharks, rays and other amazing species as their backdrop, or in the glass observatory with stunning views overlooking the River Humber.

.

To showcase our superb wedding facilities we are holding our third Wedding Fayre on Thursday 24th January 2013 from 7pm to 10pm, where brides, grooms, their families and friends are invited to experience the best our region has to offer in order to make their dream day happen.

.

.

The Deep

.

.

This well established exhibition is one of the biggest in the area since being launched in 2010 and will see over 40 exhibitors in attendance, as well as two catwalk shows.

.

If you are dress hunting then visit Jacqueline’s, It’s All About the Dress, Ella D and Sewing Solutions – offering a range of styles from modern to classic, contemporary to vintage. And not forgetting the men, Anthony’s Menswear and Day’s Menswear will also be exhibiting.

.

All brides and grooms want to look their best on their special day so have a chat with Kelly Clark Hair, Helen Guy Make Up Artist and Wide Smile Teeth Whitening.

.

.

The Deep

.

.

A whole host of car suppliers will be parked up including; Silverlane Wedding Cars, offering chauffeured British cars such as Rolls Royce and Jaguars; Spotlight Limo Cruisers, with a 16 seat limo cruiser; Marshalls, who specialise in vintage Humber cars; Hull Wedding Cars, with modern Mercedes and a Porsche Boxter and The Alternative Wedding Car Company for those wanting something a bit different.

.

If you’re looking for a photographer to capture your special day, then consider Karl Andre Photography of Willerby, Insight Photography of South Cave or Class Images of Lincolnshire. And for those searching for a videographer, we have Wedding HD and Eternal Edits. Or you may want to think about a photo booth from Booth 22.

.

.

The Deep

.

.

When it comes to entertainment, there is something to suit all tastes; from casino tables from Casino Knights to John Morton Magician, Party Time, vintage songstress Ruth Getz, Rock and Soul Machine, complete disco packages from Trackback Mobile Disco or softer music from The Parisi String Quartet.

.

If you’re looking for stylish venue dressing, then look no further than Ambience Venue Styling or A Perfect Wedding… and why not top off your stunning venue with a superb chocolate fountain from The Chocolate Fountain Experience, beautiful cakes from Cakes by Leni or The Cake Stylist, balloons from the amazing Airy Fairies, flowers from The Peppertree in Swanland, hand crafted invites from Invites for All, beautiful items from Elegant Touches and gorgeous rings from Gladstones Jewellers, Smooch Wedding Rings and Inspired Scilly or a honeymoon from The Co-operative Travel.

.

.

The Deep

.

.

It’s totally FREE to attend the event. All you need to do is pre-register your attendance by clicking here, and this automatically enters you into a prize draw to win some amazing gifts from The Deep’s exhibitors.

.

To find out more, please contact Becky Leach on becky.leach@thedeep.co.uk or call 01482 381000.

We are throwing open the whole venue (two massive ballrooms, a grand marquee and some outdoor exhibits – perfect on a sunny weekend like this one) to welcome OVER 100 of the region’s finest wedding suppliers and all you lovely brides-to-be and your families.

.

I’ve worked day and night (with some assistance from my small yet perfectly formed team of helpers!) to bring this event together and make it bigger and better even than our last show this Spring -  which was a fabulous day packed to the rafters with wedding inspiration and over 1,000 visitors!  What can I say?  I love a challenge!

.

An exhibitor space sell out, the event is now recognised as the largest free bridal event in the North East, and if that’s not worth popping along to, I don’t know what is!

.

I’m thrilled to say that it looks like all the hard work has been worth it as all the elements have come together to make one amazing day.  The web is abuzz with excitement, and the VIP pre-registrations are flooding in.  I just can’t wait to see you all now! 

.

To get your FREE VIP Bride-to-Be goody bag packed with fabulous treats and exclusive on the day discounts worth ££hundreds of pounds (seriously these are too good to miss!) and speedy entry make sure to pre-register pronto, while stocks last.  One lucky lady will also take home a pamper hamper courtesy of our amazing friends at Clarins!

.

To register for a free VIP Bride-To-Be Goody Bag fill in your details below, marking “Ramside Hall” in the subject line and quoting “VIP”. You can collect your VIP Bride-To-Be Goody Bag upon entry to the Super Showcase on Sunday 9th September 2012.
