Hello?  Is it me you’re looking for?

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.

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.

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!

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.
