County Brides Magazine 2017/2018 (10th Edition)

Each year we come up with different themes for the County Brides front cover and this year was going to be extra special.


The team had a few brainstorming sessions on how we could support the victims of the Manchester Arena bomb.

We knew we were going to do the front cover shoot somewhere in the City Centre of Manchester, but where?

We scoured the area for locations – King Street, the arches by the library, outside iconic buildings and then we found the graffiti artwork in the Northern Quarter!


Two had been there for weeks, but the day before the shoot we found the wall of BIG bees!

We would like to thank the following companies for their support:

Photography – Envision Images

Bridal Gowns – The Bridal Lounge Cheshire

Hair Styling – Fox Hairdressers

Flowers – Karena Floral & Event Artisan

Jewellery – Henry D Johnstone

Make-Up – Beauty & Make-Up Lounge

Street Artists – Jay Sharples & Qubek


In memory of all the people who lost their lives and have been affected by the Manchester Arena Bomb on the 22nd May 2017.

If you would like to help by giving a donation to the victims it would be appreciated ;
