Some Blog-Lovin’ for Brides up North {Featured}

Ah Sunday evenings…. The house is quiet after a full on day- usually involving some kind of shoot or editing, then the traditional family dinner, complete with raucous nephews :) then, all of a sudden, quiet. Lovely! Time to grab a coffee, (or perhaps a glass of wine if theres some left over from dinner!) sit down at my computer and browse through whats been happening on my favourite blogs in the past week. I wish I could discipline myself to 15 minutes a day for ‘research’ but I’m afraid if I start checking out the blogs on a daily basis I would never get any of my own work done! As it is I haven’t blogged myself in an age! Something I intend to rectify very soon by the way!

Anyway, I digress, (see how easy it is?!) So, yesterday evening as I was perusing through my inspirational list of blogs, I stumbled upon an article about Melissa Kay Photography!! I have recently ‘Joined the northern revolution’ at the awesome Brides Up North Blog and my featured suppliers interview has been published- I wasn’t expecting it until later in the week so I was very pleased to see how swiftly and beautifully the lovely Julia had put it together! You can see the full article here. Thanks so much for your kind words about my work Julia!

If you haven’t had the pleasure of devouring the fantastic articles and fabulous real weddings featured on Brides up North, then allow me to introduce you…

Brides up North Blog feature


Brides Up North is the brainchild of Julia Braime- a Northern lass who began to blog about the events leading up to her own wedding day. In her own words, she became hooked, and so did her readers.

One key factor that Julia picked up on during her first forays into wedding blogging, was that whilst there was a ton of brilliant US blogs around, there was only a handful of really great blogs in the UK, and in turn, none which were area specific- most were heavily focused on London, overlooking the fantastic suppliers in the Northern regions. So, Julia made it her mission to create a hand-picked directory of the Norths finest vendors and the Northern revolution was born!

Brides Up North was recently named the “Best Blog For Northern Brides” by Channel 4, was listed in Bride Tide’s Top 100 Wedding Blogs in the World in both 2011 and 2012 and the Top 100 UK Wedding Blogs by Easy Wedding Search.

Brides up North is one of my personal favourite wedding blogs, featuring gorgeous real northern weddings and showcasing some of the regions finest talent. It has has inspired brides to be around the world as well as us Northern lasses, and I’m sure it will continue to do so for many years to come! So if you haven’t checked it out yet, head on over and be prepared to be inspired!
