About

Say hello to Natalie, Laura and Gemma. As a team we provide unique and specialised wedding day childcare for the wedding couple's children, whilst keeping their loved ones fully involved and immersed within all the magic that a wedding day brings.

The wedding day is over, but the memories will last a lifetime! Are you going to be able to say "I made every part of that day count! I'm so glad I took the time to fully immerse myself in every aspect of it" ? Or are you worried how you're going to juggle everything; bottle feeds, naps, the bedtime routine as well as keeping to the schedule for the day...overwhelming right?

​The Wedding Nanny understands that the role as a parent never stops but just for one day wouldn't it be amazing to hire in the professionals. Based in Derbyshire but travelling the UK.

Services Offered

At the heart of our service is the goal to provide an extra parental figure to your special day, ensuring the safety and well-being of your children throughout the celebrations with them still being involved in every part that you want them to be.

​Whether its lending an understanding ear to a comforting hug, we strive to make the wedding day memorable for everyone - including the children.

Sole Nannying - Full 24 hours care for the Wedding Couple

(below is an example, this can be adapted to suit your day, making the time shorter/longer or changing the order.)

  • The Wedding Nanny will arrive in the morning, receive the handover of your children, and proceed on getting them ready for the day.

  • Bring the children to the ceremony, prepare them for their role as flower girls or page boys. Aiding them going down the aisle but being on hand if they feel scared or choose not to do so.

  • Help with photographs.

  • Make sure your children are fed and watered through out the day.

  • Engage and entertain your child while the wedding breakfast and speeches take place.

  • Taking care of nap times, bottle feeds and nappy changes throughout the day.

  • Sticking to your child's normal routine as closely as possible

  • Be with the children into the evening.

  • Take the children to bed when it's time, stay with them overnight, (this can be at the venue or if you live close by we can take them home)

  • Breakfast in the morning, be with the children until you or a family member is ready to take over.

For that peace of mind on your big day reach out to The Wedding Nanny. We will guide you through what you are looking for and our friendly, warm approach will build you with confidence that we are the correct wedding childcare supplier for you.

What makes us different?

​Privacy and one-to-one care.

We feel very strongly about this.

We do not share your life or children with the world. We keep all identities hidden of all the children in our care.

This is the same for parents and guests including the home environment and family affairs. We give you the choice before posting any content on social media. This is something we feel strongly about and we choose to do this across the board. All social media is uploaded on different days from when content is gathered. Locations differ from live locations to keep nannies and children safe.

We also do not offer a creche service.

This ensures the children are fully involved in your wedding day, whether they are walking down the aisle or being present within photographs. If we did offer care to a number of children, it would make important tasks such as the above impossible. It would impact on the quality of care we want and need to provide for your children.

Your children have a vital role to play in your wedding so we know the only way we can provide the right level of care for your family is having a nanny just for them.

The wedding nanny is an absolute must for couples with young children on their wedding day!

We want to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude for the exceptional care Natalie provided to our son, S, during our wedding day. Natalie's dedication to ensuring S's comfort, happiness, and safety allowed us to fully enjoy every aspect of our special day without any worries.

From the moment Natalie stepped in, it was evident that she not only understood our routines but also went above and beyond to make sure S felt loved and included in the celebrations. Her support with breastfeeding, bath time, and attention to S's needs throughout the day were hugely appreciated.

We were overwhelmed by the number of guests who commented on how amazing Natalie was with S, and it meant the world to us to see him thriving under her care. Natalie's presence allowed us to be fully present in the moment, knowing that S was in the best possible hands.

We cannot thank Natalie enough for her professionalism, warmth, and genuine love for children. She made our wedding day even more magical, and we will forever be grateful for the memories she helped create.

We also extend our gratitude to Gemma for her excellent communication and support throughout the process. Her responsiveness and attention to detail ensured that everything ran smoothly, allowing us to focus on the wedding prep without having to chase up any emails!

The best thing we organised for our wedding

So happy we booked The Wedding Nanny (Natalie) for our recent wedding to look after our 12 month old. Our little boy loved Natalie from the first time he met her and she made my husband and I feel completely at ease knowing he was being so well cared for. In our opinion, she didn’t just “look after him” she genuinely took time to get to know him and his likes and dislikes. She took the hassle away and provided his meals and snacks and I think he actually missed Natalie for a couple of days after our wedding. So many of our family and friends commented on how fantastic she was and what a good idea it was to have Natalie with us on the day. Thank you so much!

The best thing we did for our wedding.

We booked the Wedding Nanny for our wedding day and decided to extend from the night before to the following day. Natalie and Laura were both amazing, they took such amazing care of our son, even changing his outfits for the ceremony and reception. Nothing was too much trouble and it gave us so much reassurance knowing that our baby was being looked after, allowing us to fully enjoy our day. We are so thankful for making our wedding really special. Thank you wedding nanny!

The Wedding Nanny - the absolute best!

How do I give more than 5 stars?! If you’re planning a wedding or know someone that is, for goodness sake do yourselves a favour and get the Wedding Nanny onboard. This was quite literally the best investment of the entire day. I got in touch with The Wedding Nanny in the run up to my sister’s wedding. With the bride’s 1 year old and my 20 month old on the scene we realised that we would need ‘an extra pair of hands’ on the day and the evening/night… fast forward to the actual day and genuinely we would have been lost without the fabulous Natalie and Laura. They enabled the bride to be just that, a bride. She was able to get ready without (much loved) sticky hands making a grab for her, soak up the day and have precious moments with her new husband. For me (a single mum) I had the gift of being right by my sister’s side before she said “I do” and having a lovely and very rare day off 😊. It’s fair to say that we had massively underestimated how busy the actual day of the wedding would be, and so the guidance that Natalie and Laura provided in preparation was absolutely invaluable. They worked with through the schedule for the day and helped to find the perfect balance for our babies in terms of being included but also maintaining their routine. They thought of everything, were full of helpful suggestions for managing key moments during the day and asked the questions we hadn’t even thought of. The result was lovely moments with the children throughout the day, but most importantly happy, settled and content babes (as well as parents!). This the magic of the Wedding Nanny; they know children and they know weddings. The combination is priceless. As for Natalie and Laura - there aren’t enough words. They didn’t just provide a service, they became a part of the family for 24 hours. They are absolutely incredible. Highly capable and experienced, warm, kind and very fun… We felt immediate trust the moment we met them. I didn’t know how my little girl would react to being away from me but she waltzed off with them and was clearly having such an amazing time that I genuinely didn’t worry about her once or feel guilty that I didn’t have her with me the whole time. My nephew was just as happy, and footage from their tea time kitchen disco made us wonder who was actually having the better party…! Thank you so so much for looking after our little cherubs and being such an integral part of a brilliant day!

By far the best idea we had ! Outstanding service

Laura, Natalie and Gemma were the best investment at our daughter's wedding. With two daughters , one the bride and one the main bridesmaid and three under twos between them we knew they would things could have been difficult Outstanding care and support for my three very young grandchildren. The girls were very present but at the same time had a wonderful professional style of blending discreetly into the background ( very hard to explain). The three children were so happy all day, and so well behaved , this I feel was down to the fact the three nannies were able to fulfil all their needs like naps, feeds, nappy changes, entertainment etc. The one on one focus and calmness gave them a lovely environment amongst the bustle of guests and noise. My daughter's were both relaxed and felt confident that the children were being so well cared for as Laura, Gemma and Natalie communicated regularly with them and when they needed their children for photos or just time with their children they magically arrived as I suspect each nanny was "reading ' mums cues. Absolutely highly recommend these lovely ladies. So much more than just babysitters/minders, they are like another level and feel.like part of our family.
If anyone has any hesitation about using this fabulous service I would be happy to answer any questions.

WOW. Not enough words to express my thanks.

I wish I could actually put into words how much my experience with the wedding nanny’s felt and continues to feel now!

My children are my whole entire world and booking a wedding with 2 under 2 was always going to be a bit of a whirlwind. Until I came across these wonderful human beings. What they did for us on our wedding day is something we as a family will never forget, it will always be such a huge part of the story we go on to tell our children. The organisation, beforehand in the lead up to the wedding, the interactions with the children prior, the preparation and equipment brought with them to help save your stresses, the knowledge they have, their kindness is just incomparable to anything I have ever come across. I danced for the first time in 18 months, knowing that my children were being so well looked after. To have people willing to skip their own meals, not go to the loo, not sit down, to make sure that your children are safe and fed and having fun and have a smile on their faces is something that is so rare and amazing.

As the bride, subconsciously looking around for my children to check all was okay, it’s like they could read my mind and were watching for my mum cues at all times. Playing with them but near me so I could see the children, being so unbelievably present with them but also so discreet. The continuity for the children, the beautiful relationship created with the children, the detailed handovers at the end of the night letting me know exactly what had gone on with each child, when they had fed, slept, been changed.

If I carry on i’ll end up writing the longest review ever known to man.I am the most in control, routine led, worried to have anyone else look after their child mum there ever was. But I have no other words to say except from the bottom of our hearts, thankyou so much. This was the best investment to our day and if you have children, are getting married and reading this review to reassure yourself, your reassurance is completely here. I need every mother who is going to be a bride to know how much this means and how amazing these people are!!!

Day & Evening Childcare

Natalie was fantastic with our 6 month old daughter. We hadn’t left her for more than an hour before so 17 hours with a nanny seemed a little unknown. Our daughter was calm, happy and her usual self - huge credit to Natalie for allowing this to happen. We were kept updated throughout the day with photos and videos. We were able to relax in the comfort that she was happy and well cared for. Would book again in a heartbeat! If only we lived closer!

The Best Childcare for our Big Day

We hired The Wedding Nanny for our three children at our wedding and hands down was the best money we spent! Our children were well cared and catered for, played games and were still a big part of our day. Hiring Natalie and Laura gave us peace of mind that we weren’t relying on family to watch them. Natalie stayed overnight and ensured all children were in bed when they got too tired, meaning we knew they were safe and happy.

Overall an incredible experience and really meant we could relax and enjoy our wedding knowing they were having lots of fun too!

Very Friendly & professional

Natalie & her team from the first enquiry are very friendly and welcoming which puts your mind at rest straight away. We used the wedding nanny for our 4 month old daughter and I would highly recommend the team. Natalie was incredible she checks in with you before the big day and runs through everything.
On the day followed everything we requested and went above and beyond our daughter was very happy in her company.
Thank you so much!

Amazing childcare

We got married on Saturday and Natalie came to look after our three month old from 7pm so we could dance the night away without worrying whether she was okay!
Natalie was beyond amazing - we had a call with her before the wedding to go through our little girls likes and dislikes and her routine. Natalie contacted us multiple times during the run up to the day which gave us even more confidence to leave our daughter for the first time!
On the day Natalie arrived early and came to pick up our daughter who by that time was slightly overwhelmed after being passed around and not napping a lot! Natalie was absolutely awesome with our baby and would 100% recommend to anyone!
Thank you xx

Easily one of the best suppliers we hired

We hired Natalie to look after our 3 month old little boy for our wedding and I don't know what we would have done without her! She was incredible with him and made me feel so at ease.
