Weddings on the Mind

Putting mental health first in the wedding industry

Hargate Hall in Wormhill, Buxton is one of our favourite wedding venues so we were delighted by the fact that our first wedding of 2017 was planned for this fabulous Peak District venue.

Emma and Chris had chosen this exclusive wedding venue and just three months before the big day we met with them over dinner at our gorgeous Rose Cottage to discuss what we could do to make their wedding weekend perfect. Our first stop for Hargate couples is to invite them to dinner so we can chat all things ‘Hargate Weddings,’ plus, as it’s our catering services which are very popular at Hargate, we get to tempt them with some fabulous and relaxed style dining.

With Chris being a wine merchant we knew we had to create a menu that matched his wine tastes so it was great to create a fabulous tasting menu and both Emma and Chris had some great ideas to create a fabulous menu for their guests. It was a great first meet-up, made better by the attendance of the fabulous ‘Myf’ or ‘Myfanwy’ their very cute and well behaved dog!

Services were booked and another couple left us happy not only with their catering choices but the fact we offer so much more. As wedding and event planners and coordinators first and foremost, we are there to help Hargate couples plan and run every aspect of their wedding, guaranteeing they get completely relaxed, fun and professionally run wedding.

Friday 27 January 2017 soon came around and it was time to pack-up and head to Buxton and set-up, helping to dress the marquee with Emma’s vision of green and pinks with paper cranes and a few little pigs and get everything organised for Saturday’s wedding before we had a well-earned meal at our favourite restaurant, The Merchant’s Yard in Tideswell (a must for anyone in the Buxton area!).

Despite being a cold weekend in January everything was set for their wedding and as Saturday arrived our fabulous team was set and ready to go. The gents were dressed in traditional Welsh kilts and Emma looked stunning in a dress made by Chris’ mum and Myf was suitably attired with a green bowtie!

It was another successful weekend wedding that had great, fun people, wine and fabulous food and once again our fabulous Mode for…Events team delivered a professional and approachable service that once again made me super proud of what we do and how we do it.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Pritchard and well done #teammodefor.

Katie & Mark married at The Arches @ Dean Clough, Halifax, West Yorkshire on 29 July 2016 and it was a stunning wedding filled with music, love, traditional singing and fast cars!

This was the first ever legal ceremony at The Arches so it was an exciting event for this most wonderful venue, however, with a nervous groom and a bride delayed in traffic, it was cutting it fine as to whether the Registrar could stay before he had to get off to his next wedding, the other side of Halifax! However, Katie arrived looking stunning and the show carried on flawlessly.

The venue looked superb with flowers from Owl House Flowers (www. and we helped style the venue beautifully with little touches such as horse shoes on the tables from the bride.

Amazing food from the fabulous Eat Me – Drink Me ( magic mirrors and some great live music set the guests up for a party that ran right into the night.

Katie and Mark were a delight to work with on their wedding and they had some fabulous words to say about Mode for…Events and the service we offer too. Read Katie’s testimonial:

“On viewing ‘The Arches’ at Dean Clough Mill for our potential wedding venue, we fell in love with it and Tabby at ‘Mode-for Events’. Tabby’s instant recognition for the style of our wedding along with her being knowledgeable about the venue, catering and down to the finer detail was just exquisite.

Tabby and her team were accommodating to our every request from menu tasting to helping offer ideas of special touches for the day. The team were available for every call I made and nothing was too much trouble.

The overall service from the first meeting with Tabby up to our wedding day was professional but personable and flawless in the delivery. Tabby and the team made our wedding a superb event and I highly recommend the company and their comprehensive knowledge of the events trade. We certainly would have Mode for-Events plan our next party.” Katie Bennett - July 2016

Congratulations Katie and Mark
