If you are a long term follower of our blog (*waves*) you’ll know that we are also very proud to edit a glossy print magazine, Unveiled, which is a bi-annual bridal publication, and the luxury wedding magazine for the North of the UK.
I work purely on the creative side for Unveiled, which makes it a total passion project and a dream come true for the girl who grew up wanting to be editor of Vogue. If Vogue was a bridal mag, Unveiled would get close. No lie.
As I said in my Editor’s letter at the opening of issue #04: targeted from its inception at the discerning, luxury bride (that’s you, dear reader), Unveiled is glossier and more gorgeous than the rest. A true coffee table tome, it’s always been the best looking. My brief? To give this beauty some heart and soul.
I was proud to press print on my first issue in charge this autumn and the collaboration has been (even if I do say so myself!) an unprecedented success. To everyone who called, emailed or wrote – and especially those who sent chocolate – to congratulate me on A/W2015, thank you so much for your support. Unveiled is available to buy online, at WHSmiths across the North of the UK, independent retailers and all the very best wedding exhibitions. I do hope that you managed to pick up your copy and that its helping to inspire some seriously chic wedding plans. Get it while you can, as issue #05 is already well underway, landing spring 2016.
But, you know us. Once we’ve found something that our readers love and want more of, we can’t just let it go. We’ve an absolutely amazing season of innovative and excellent Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibitions and events planned for 2016 (and boho brides, have you checked out our brand new WEDSTOCK and WEDSTIVAL concepts yet?) but for 2017, it feels right to go even bigger. To plan, produce and deliver to the North a truly designer wedding show – an entirely bespoke offering crafted in collaboration with our favourite suppliers and our readers – super glossy, super inspiring, but still wholly useful and accessible to all. Basically to bring together everything we do best at both Brides Up North and Unveiled, put it all under one huge roof, and add a cherry on the top.
So, it’s set: Our multi award winning wedding blog Brides Up North in collaboration with Unveiled magazine, is thrilled to bring you brides/unveiled The Luxury Wedding Show, debuting spring 2017 at Harrogate International Centre.
As an immersive luxury bridal experience spanning two days in this celebrated, accessible exhibition space in the heart of the UK, brides/UNVEILED will aim to bring the stylish pages of our popular media products to life. With bespoke spaces, creative concepts and luxe visual displays like no other, this high end consumer bridal event aims to connect the inspiration gathering process with the professionals who can deliver sensational results.
And we haven’t got all the answers yet. We’re at the very beginning of the planning journey – the date is booked and we’ve one huge space to design, and we’d love to hear from you about what you’d like from this very special event.
