Weddings on the Mind

Putting mental health first in the wedding industry

By modefor, Feb 19 2017 11:15AM

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.

Our lives at Mode for…Events are ensconced in the most amazing world of creativity, inspiration and all round wonderfulness. We are very lucky in that every day we do what we want to do. We carve our own path through life, never saying ‘no’ to ideas and projects and as a consequence every day is different.


This way, we continually develop our diverse business doing things we are passionate about.

Day to day we could be planning weddings, planning, designing and styling events, managing venues and events, being musicians, recommending and supplying amazing industry colleagues to clients, creating menus and surrounded by fabulous food and wine, or travelling to explore, be inspired and create our next project. We have no limits and we love it.


Quite simply, our ethos is to do what we love and love what we do and at this we succeed. We make the rules and trends and we don’t follow them! We execute everything with passion and professionalism whilst keeping super relaxed. We are always on the lookout for new projects and ways to develop and diversify. Our number one priority is how we work with our clients, colleagues and industry friends and we have a reputation for supporting and collaborating to strengthen ourselves and everyone around us. It’s an exciting and unique place to be!


So, in honour of our hand-carved Mode for…Events culture, we’re excited to offer up the opportunity for people to join us, with the launch of three exciting, yet varied Summer internship positions.

We’re so excited about meeting new people, working with and being inspired by them and that’s why we’re keen to invite passionate people to join our amazing world.


Whether you are just wanting to see if it’s the world for you, or perhaps you have just started out as an independent wedding or events business and would like mentoring and more experience, this could be the perfect opportunity for you, as not only will you work with us, you will also gain experience and opportunities from some of our closest and most respected weddings and events friends in several different fields of the industry.


So, don’t hesitate, read our info and see if this could be something for you.

I can’t wait to hear from you.

Behind the Scenes at Gibson Mill, Hardcastle Crags, Hebden Bridge

June 2016


We all see the fantastic images that appear in wedding magazines and blogs and we fall in love with them, envisioning that beauty for our own wedding day. But behind every amazing photo you see there is a story. Hours of talent, sweat and tears that went into creating that one perfect image.


In June, I organised a photoshoot using a hand-picked selection of amazing wedding industry friends to promote a new range of bridal headpieces by Molly from Good Golly Miss Molly Hats.


I knew I wanted to create something beautiful, relaxed and the whole shoot needed to be full of opportunities and completely stress free. Because that’s what we do at Mode for…Events, create relaxed, fun events without any stress for our clients and colleagues! (we’re nailing that too BTW!).


The shoot was amazing, the photos taken at Gibson Mill, Hardcastle Crags by Adam of Adam Wilkinson Photography are incredible and I released the images to various magazines and blogs, but settled on a front cover image and two-page spread in Your Yorkshire Wedding Magazine.


Have you seen it? It’s incredible! Go buy your copy now!


It all worked out perfectly, the small but perfectly formed team was great with myself, Molly, Adam, Naomi (Make-up by Naomi J Frazer), Cheryl (Hair by Cheryl Walker-Askew), a cake from Claire at Sweet Sugar Sixpence, bouquets from Lucy at Lily Rose & Daisy Chains and dresses from Shannon at Dotty Taylor, plus our two young and talented models at the very start of their careers, Becky and Alice, who were both relatives of friends.


I hope the stunning images will be circulating the wedding world for some years to come, but back to my point, behind every stunning image is a story. So I thought you’d like to see the real story in images. So, sit back and enjoy the behind the scenes images from our photoshoot.

Lots of Love
