Today’s wedding oozes modern style set against a rustic farm backdrop. Ellie and Steve held their...
After yesterdays post about the new wedding open day I am planning at Hargate Hall I thought it would be a good idea to tell you a bit more about the venue.
Hargate Hall is one of those venues that I love here at Boho as it offers something different. Set in the gorgeous Buxton countryside. Hargate Hall is a venue you hire not just for the day of the wedding but for the whole weekend.
Normally couples book in on the Friday afternoon and then check out on the Monday morning, making it perfect for all your guests to stay in one place, meaning the wedding celebrations can go on all weekend.
Hargate has 12 large apartments within the building which all lead off from the main hall area. The large sweeping stair case then leads up to the second floor where more apartments can be found. There are 12 apartments in all, which in total sleep 77 guests.
The Hall itelf is licensed for up to 60 seated and 100 with a mix of seated and standing. If you wish to have more people at your reception then you can also hire the marquee which is located in the halls grounds.
All apartments have fully equipped kitchens.
The venue is perfect for the DIY couple looking for for a venue that allows them more flexibility. Once you have the keys for the venue you are pretty much left to your own devises to plan the wedding you want.
The Hall can of course offer you suggestions to local suppliers who can help you but you are not tied to any one supplier or idea.
The building is licensed for civil ceremonies, civil partnerships as well as for alcohol.
I love the freedom that this venue gives couples, and the fact that the wedding becomes a whole weekend event and not just a day. It is child and animal friendly as well.
Imagine what you could do here………a relaxed BBQ wedding, or a country fate theme, a sit down meal in the hall, a medieval banquet, a picnic in the grounds, a bouncy castle for the children’s or a treasure hunt. It would make a great Christmas venue with the big fire, or a fantastic summer venue with the use of the outside greenery. There is even a tiny building outside that is licensed that could mean an outside wedding (weather permitting) and the venue is big enough to accommodate all of the wedding party.
I have built up a great relationship with Julie and Anthony who own Hargate Hall, a lovely couple who run the hall and work incredibly hard.
I am pleased to say that I am now their on sight wedding planner for anyone wanting to book my services as an added extra. I have put together a selection of planning packages that are separate from the ones on my website aimed at offering the hargate couple that bit of extra help.
Hargate will only recommend me, so get in contact if you want any more details on how I can help plan your wedding.
And don’t forget the Open House on Sunday 19th September when you will get the chance to see the Hall set out for a wedding and also meet lots of local wedding suppliers…….and of course me!
