Nothing Compares: A Unique & Individual Venue

The Arches @ Dean Clough is a unique and individual wedding venue, nestled in the heart of West Yorkshire. Part of the historic Dean Clough Mills in Halifax, The Arches @ Dean Clough was launched as a wedding venue in 2016 and has fast become renowned for its flexibility and professional but relaxed approach to creating unique, bespoke and exclusive weddings with fabulous food.

The Arches is co-owned by Tony Watkins, owner of the fantastic Eat Me – Drink Me caterers and events expert Jamie Horsley and weddings are exclusively promoted and coordinated by Mode for…Events, directed by Tabby Kerwin.

Tabby commented: “I truly believe that every couple should have an individual and bespoke wedding and The Arches @ Dean Clough is a dream as it offers an incomparable venue. Totally unique in the region, not only does it offer natural beauty with stone floors, vaulted brick ceilings, beautiful windows and cast iron pillars, it offers a completely blank canvas which allows us to help brides and grooms create their own special day. It brings city chic and urban into the heart of Yorkshire.”

Tabby continued: “Individuality and uniqueness is my whole ethos with weddings and events and since we launched last year, everything we have done at The Arches has reflected this. Even our recent wedding fair.”

Mode for…Events has organised wedding fairs at The Arches @ Dean Clough since its launch and even they come with a unique twist. No sterile, formal rows of exhibitors, but a real-life experience with a relaxed atmosphere and a recreation of a real wedding are what visiting couples can expect.

At the end of 2016, Tabby took this concept one step further and hosted a live photoshoot on the same day as the Autumn wedding fair.

We do love to get out and about to our venues!

We also like to have some of our tried and trusted suppliers explore on our behalf too… So when Katrina Otter, our resident Wedding Planner, was invited to a rather special bridal supper at a spectacular Buckinghamshire wedding venue she went with her Coco hat on!

Here’s a little review of Hedsor House

Notes about Hedsor House

Katrina:

Back in September a rather exciting and exclusive invitation landed in my inbox to attend the Hedsor House Bridal Supper Party for wedding planners, press and bloggers in partnership with Moving Venue by SMART.

On the agenda was a champagne and canapé reception, a private tour of the House and recently refurbished Ballroom, an intimate and sumptuous three course dinner and the opportunity to stay overnight in one of the newly installed 11 luxury bedrooms. As you can imagine, I was there with bells on!
