five of the best things to do in West Yorkshire this Christmas

I’m not going to lie, I love the festive season and personally it’s all about the build-up. There’s something rather uplifting about the Christmas season for me (even if it does now start super early but I’m not complaining!) from watching Christmas Movies on Channel 5 in the afternoon whilst I’m working (I’m the Queen of multitasking!) to the traditional selection of my very special Scotch pine Christmas tree with my now teenage son; I love this time of year.

I’ll be honest, it really is about that time from late November (OK, mid-November!) to Christmas Eve and over the years I’ve loved being involved in a huge array of different festive events, both professionally and socially and this year I plan to lap up as much Festive cheer as possible to keep me buzzing through the Winter months; and I don’t just mean I’m going to ‘Gin-gle’ all the way!

Therefore, based on events I’ve experienced in previous years, added with a little something new and always supporting friends, musicians, local creatives, businesses and venues, here’s my list of five things to do in West Yorkshire this Christmas Season.

So, what are you waiting for? Get booking your tickets, planning your days, shop independent and go and have some Christmas cheer.

Much Love

Real Wedding – Nadya & Dave, Hargate Hall, August 2016

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.
