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
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!

It’s almost that time of year again…
The Most Unusual Wedding Fair is without doubt one of the most stylish entries in our Event Diary. Hosted by Godwick Great Barn, in partnership with a team of fabulous wedding suppliers, this Wedding Fair is the perfect setting to inspire and delight those rustic-boho brides amongst you.
Penny from The Little Lending Co. is here with all the details…
Notes from Godwick Great Barn
If you are looking for a Rustic, Whimsical, Vintage, Boho and Festival styled wedding then this is definitely a fair for you.
This year there’s an even greater selection of outside street food trucks and drink stands, so come and enjoy the atmosphere and take in the Wild Bohemia-themed outside styled ceremony area. We’ll also have a brand new ‘interactive table’ where suppliers will give tips and information about the latest trends in floristry and wedding design plus a live hair and make-up demonstration to inspire you.

Monday mornings – I’m sure we all have our own routines to kick-start our week right…?
Well last Monday I was well and truly thrown when I stepped away from the usual desk position and headed to the picturesque Richmond-upon-Thames, where apparently bhuti lies within…
The story starts with The Bingham. I absolutely adore this venue. It’s graced these pages many a time and it’s been a personal bookmark for many a family occasion; so when I was asked if I wanted to make another visit to try out their brand new Spa called bhuti, there was only one answer.
Bhuti & The Bride
bhuti is an eco and wellbeing escape located a stones throw from the hotel. Offering a range of natural and organic spa treatments, bhuti is a perfect extension of The Bingham’s luxury ethos and offers a range of treatments designed to ensure you feel radiant from within. From yoga classes and nutrition workshops, to thermal detox massages and inner peace treatments, bhuti offers a treatment for everyone covering a range of Complementary therapies including Reiki, Acupuncture and Homeopathy, all carried out using only the finest natural and organic products proudly made in England.
You may have a small inclination by now that planning a wedding can be teensy bit stressful, so I personally think taking time out – whether it’s with your husband-to-be, with your girlfriends or just by yourself – is essential. You can therefore visit bhuti for a pick me up throughout your wedding planning or enjoy some pampering on the eve or morning of your big day. The stresses of wedmin and to-do lists can quite simply be left at the door as soon as you step into the idyllic and tranquil surroundings.
