Brides Up North

Blog Overview

Since its launch in 2010, Brides Up North has skyrocketed in popularity and profile to become one of the ‘most influential’ blogs in the UK, and is the only ‘top 5’ UK bridal blog especially for Northern Brides. Brides Up North stands out because it encourages its readers to think local and to support the fabulous wedding industry suppliers on their own doorstep. Every single featured supplier, styled shoot, real wedding or industry expert we feature on the blog took place or is based in the North of England. Brides Up North has been named “Best Blog for Northern Brides” by Channel 4; crowned “Best Big Day Inspiration” blog in the Wedding Magazine Awards 2013, highly commended in the “Best City Blog” category in the Wedding Magazine Awards 2014 and 2015 and “Best Social Media” in the Wedding Magazine Awards 2016. Brides Up North was also a finalist in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2014 (“Best Wedding Blog”) and in Perfect Wedding Magazine Awards 2014 (“Best Wedding Blog”). The Brides Up North brand has become extremely well known away from the pages of the blog too. We have a loyal and local offline following and Brides Up North’s branded luxury wedding exhibitions, networking events and parties across Yorkshire, the North West and North East have been consistently sold out with record attendances for our venues. Brides Up North have hosted over 100 luxury bridal events under our brand name since 2012, and have 40+ events planned in 2016 alone, including the industry leading WEDFEST TOUR wedding festival shows. Brides Up North’s founder, Julia Braime, is a leading industry expert and has been profiled in or contributed to almost every National wedding magazine title, as well featuring extensively in regional bridal titles, national news and lifestyle press. Julia was headhunted as Editor-In-Chief and Creative Director of UNVEILED Magazine – the luxury wedding magazine for the North – in January 2015. Julia’s inaugural issues as Editor-In-Chief have been received to great industry acclaim.

Brides Up North is so much more than an online resource for our readers. As well as a double dose of truly beautiful blog content every weekday, we work extremely hard to bring our online visitors a real choice of innovative and inspiring 'real life' events away from our pretty pages too. Since 2015 we have been proud to offer a cutting edge print product in UNVEILED Magazine and have big plans to build on all three elements of our business in 2017, delivering more of what our brides and loyal supplier base love. We'd love to bring the UK Blog Award in the Events & Wedding category home, and show the rest of the UK just what the North can do!
