    So brilliant, really made such a difference to our day!

    I couldn't praise Safe & Sound Event Childcare enough for their work on our wedding day.

    They've been so brilliant from initial enquiry to having a Facetime with owner Stephanie to understand our needs, to the big day itself.

    Me and fiance had been unsure whether we needed to book childcare for his two boys at our wedding, they are 5 & 7, but I really felt we would enjoy the day more knowing someone was there who had eyes on them at all times, especially when we got into the evening. Sue, from Safe and Sound was so brilliant and lovely - the boys warmed to her immediately when she arrived and she brought loads of activities and games for them to do. During the afternoon the boys dipped in and out of playing with Sue and spending time with the family, and at all times she just had a watch over them when they were moving between all the different groups. She was a life saver during the wedding breakfast as of course the second they finished their food they wanted to be up and playing, and Sue was there to entertain them. In the evening they surprised us all by staying up all night dancing, when the youngest started to tire Sue looked after him while he slept in the Marquee, and every time I looked over at her I could see she had her eyes on our seven year old, so when he was running around, she just knew exactly where he was. It just made a huge difference to our enjoyment of the day, knowing someone had tabs on them while we were being pulled left right and centre and I thought Sue was such a professional that she totally got the brief and let the boys dictate how they wanted to spend their day. She was also so lovely to talk to and slotted into the day so well, I really couldn't sing her praises enough.

    Highly recommend! If you're unsure about childcare for your wedding day, I really suggest a facetime with Stephanie for that initial chat and reassurance - I think we would have had such a different day if we hadn't booked Safe & Sound. Thank you so much to the team!

    Amazing wedding creche

    Steph and her team were fantastic. We had 30 children so the whole team were needed for our wedding and they were amazing.
    The organisation was very efficient and the equipment they provided was amazing. The children all had an amazing time, so much so that they are still talking about it now!

    Super nanny


    I just wanted to say how amazing Gemma was yesterday with our little Fearne. The best decision of our wedding by far. She was so content and happy with Gemma & absolutely adored her.
    Not only did Gemma look after Fearne amazingly all day and evening, she also helped us get some amazing shots by making Fearne laugh hysterically behind the camera.
    She was a pleasure to have around and let us relax and enjoy while still keeping Fearne involved. Everyone kept saying to us all day how fantastic she was. She got called the child whisperer quite often!
    Thank you so much. We have recommended you to a couple of families with little ones who are planning a wedding.

    The children loved it and meant that the adults could enjoy the wedding knowing that the children were in safe hands

    Our son is not exactly easy to look after, but they handled him like complete pros, and made
    the wedding so enjoyable for us. That they could look after him without drama, even
    though for the preceding 3 months he had always been with at least one of us, is pretty
    impressive! And he had a great time. Really good communication before, during and after
    the event. Great set-up on the day, the children loved it and meant that the adults could
    enjoy the wedding knowing that the children were in safe hands. Also, our daughter has
    some specific medical issues, and Safe and Sound Events made sure that she had one on
    one attention whenever we left her with them. Fantastic service all round. We had friends
    from overseas with us who had two small boys, Safe and Sound provided baby sitting in the
    lead up to the Wedding and cared for the boys during the day and the Wedding Breakfast.
    They were very professional, and the boys were well cared for. I even have lovely drawings
    to keep.

    The kids enjoyed the brilliant array of toys and activities on offer and parents felt comfortable leaving their little ones for a short time

    Steph and her team did a fantastic job looking after the 30! children at our wedding,
    providing lots to keep them occupied, yet making sure that they were still very much part of
    the day. The kids enjoyed the brilliant array of toys and activities on offer and parents felt
    comfortable leaving their little ones for a short time while we had the speeches.
    During the meal, all the kids sat together at ‘party tables’, closely supervised by Steph’s
    team. By and large the kids loved having their own tables and any minor incidents were
    dealt with by the staff brilliantly and without any dramas.
    The evening babysitting service also worked well and allowed some of the guests to enjoy
    the party to the full without having to worry about their (very tired!) little ones.
    Thanks again to your great team for helping to make our day so special.

    It was a fantastic day but was made just perfect by the team of Safe and Sound Events

    I went to a friend’s wedding and it was the first time my 3 and half year old had ever been
    to such an event. It was a fantastic day but was made just perfect by the team of Safe and
    Sound Events. My daughter felt immediately comfortable with them and was happy to play
    with them and the other children throughout the meal and speeches. They brought each
    child to their table for food and took them back to play or outside during the speeches. This
    meant they never got bored and we got to enjoy the whole day without stressing about
    them behaving at the table etc. They were all super friendly and professional and kept all
    the parents informed on how the day would go. My daughter had the best time and myself
    and my husband actually got to eat a meal without rushing, finish a conversation and enjoy
    a speech without having to sssh an impatient toddler! Thanks again!

    All the children were so well cared for and had a wonderful time full of fun and laughter

    Thank you so much for your exceptional childcare service provided for our wedding at
    Hengrave Hall. All the children were so well cared for and had a wonderful time full of fun
    and laughter. Your help with our two children before the service helped make the day as
    perfect as it was. I think getting to know the children during this time helped put them at
    ease as they were away from all the craziness of the Bridal suite! Our 3 year old son walked
    down the aisle alongside our Niece...something we had hoped for but didn’t think for a
    second he would actually do!
    Perfect day, perfect weather, perfect staff, perfect guests.... just perfect!!
    Thank you x

    Thank you for making it an even more special day for the kids than it was already!

    Absolutely brilliant - I felt very happy leaving my 4 and 6 year old with Stephanie and Chris
    at a family wedding. The kids had a blast and could come and go between the meal and
    speeches and grown up bits, they made masks, ran around with frisbees, played in teepees
    and did everything kids should do! I would thoroughly recommend, particularly as 2 of the 4
    children had additional medical and dietary needs and this was all dealt with fantastically.
    Thank you for making it an even more special day for the kids than it was already!

    The team had a great array of toys and games and some beautiful teepees

    Safe and Sound did a great job of looking after my daughter at a recent wedding we
    attended. It was great to know she was being looked after, and whilst she did want to come
    and see us a couple of times, she was clearly content with the team members, which is of
    course a big thing as they were total strangers to her! The team had a great array of toys
    and games and some beautiful teepees which tied in perfectly with the stunning grounds of
    the venue. Thank you.

    Caring, fun and above all safe

    Stephanie and team are a total joy to work with. They take plenty of care and attention to
    make contact with all the parents well in advance of running their wedding crèche which is
    incredibly reassuring for those parents entrusting their children to them for the day. Their
    team set up super efficiently and quickly and are full of smiles and excitement for their
    roles. They have a totally fantastic range of games, toys, and activities for all ages and most
    importantly just love giving the children as good a time as the adults in a caring, fun and
    above all safe, environment.
    Highly recommended where you want to treat children and parents alike to a really superb
    wedding experience where everyone is happy.
    Thanks so much team. – The Bespoke Wedding Company

    After every wedding I always get the parents coming up to me and telling how brilliant they are and what a great time their kids had

    I have been working with Steph and the team from Safe and Sound Events for a few years
    now. They are amazing at what they do. After every wedding I always get the parents
    coming up to me and telling how brilliant they are and what a great time their kids had.
    That’s testimony in itself.
    I wouldn’t even suggest anyone else to look after the children on my weddings. They are the
    best.

    We could talk to everybody at our wedding and most importantly relax

    A BIG THANK YOU to you and your amazing team.
    You basically made our day!!
    I’m not exaggerating. We didn’t change a single nappy, warm any milk or even put our kids
    to bed! It meant we could talk to everybody at our wedding and most importantly relax...
    Your creche service just took away all the hassle and stress from our day.

    Thank you for all the fun outdoor activities and personal care that you showed all the
    children...

    You really did provide a superb and professional service

    I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for organising all
    of the child care arrangements for my wedding at St James, Croxton and South Farm on 1st
    December. You really did provide a superb and professional service.
    Both child carers really were excellent. However, could you especially pass on my thanks to
    the nanny who looked after our son all day Theodore? She really was SUPERB - a credit to
    your team. I also know he was teething at the time so no mean feat. My mother and
    mother in law also commented on how good she was with him - she really did care for him,
    which is really needed at such a stressful time.
    Thanks again and with very best wishes
