Weddings on the Mind

Putting mental health first in the wedding industry

By modefor, Oct 20 2016 06:00PM

We adore our weddings at Hargate Hall in Wormhill, Buxton. We’ll be honest, it is one of our favourite venues, but then again we are a little biased as we got married there ourselves in April 2016. (We really should share some of our own pics on the blog shouldn’t we?)


We’ve had some great weddings there this Summer but last week we got some official images from the wedding of Nadya and Dave Murray, taken by the super talented Cassandra Lane.


At Hargate Hall we supply everything from coordination to full catering and at this wedding we supplied the lot, plus nailed the art of hanging floating branches! We had our ‘A’ team on the job with Tabby, Simon, Abi and Elizabeth and it was a great day. What an awesome family and guests. We also had some additional help from the next door neighbours’ cat! He’s a cutie, if not a naughty boy breaking in to the marquee at every opportunity for some guest attention.


Enjoy these selected images from Cassandra. They’re awesome.


We can’t wait to be at Hargate Hall next year for lots of weddings, plus we’ll be there in December for a wedding and a corporate event and back in February to meet lots of wonderful people.


Enjoy.

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
