Absolutely brilliant!

We are so glad we found Sammy! We decided only a few weeks before our wedding that we should have someone to look after our 22 month old on the day. Luckily Sammy was available, kept in touch, visited us a few days before and was so brilliant.

On the day Sammy arrived whilst I was getting ready, so took over and played with our son, took him for a nap, made him lunch and got him ready. An absolute dream for me and my bridesmaids as I don’t have any immediate family around to help. She was available throughout the whole day and night, she took him away to play, kept him in the routine we have at home and he went to bed without a hitch! He was happy and entertained and it meant we could relax, he wasn’t attached to me, and we didn’t have to rely on any guests to keep him busy and miss anything taking him to bed etc.

She was so wonderful, and so many guests commented on how brilliant she had been throughout the day. Best money spent, and truly the most helpful when you have a toddler. Don’t hesitate!

She was lovely with the kids

She was really great with the kids, she had lots of toys and was happy to share with other kids she wasn't even looking after. Very friendly and open.

Wedding at Wyresdale

Although we only had two children at our wedding, we wanted to be able to keep them entertained and let the adults let their hair down. Sammy was perfect, making sure they were available for photos when needed. She brought lots of games and crafts and was amazing with the kids. We met beforehand which was very helpful too. Knowing you’ve got someone you can trust is so important and we’d definitely recommend Sammy to couples looking for a wedding sitter!

Our Mary Poppins!!

I can't recommend this lady enough! From the moment we found her she made the effort to call us several times to get to know our little boy ahead of our big day. He felt so comfortable around her and ensured he was well looked after whilst still enjoying the wedding day. He said he had a great time and I can't thank you enough for taking the pressure off our big day. Thank you!!

An angel sent from heaven

We have a little boy who is non verbal autistic and we knew he would struggle during our big day, and he would need to stick to his bedtime routine.
We had looked around for ages for someone to nanny our boy who had experience with SEN children and non verbal children, and then a friend recommended the wedding babysitter (Sammy) to us. She sent over all of her qualifications, put our mind at rest with quick response to our questions and even took time out of her day to come and meet our boy before the big day so he could recognise her face and be comfortable being left with Sammy.
Sammy made sure she was aware of his special interests, and brought them with her for my boy to use.
She kept us informed with any information and let us know everything was ok with our boy in the evening which put our mind at rest so we could enjoy the evening.

Couldn’t be happier!

We were umming and ahhing about whether to have a wedding sitter for our 13 month old but choosing to hire Sammy was honestly the best decision of our entire wedding (aside from actually getting married of course).
I couldn’t recommend her more. From start to finish, Sammy made us feel so at ease that we were leaving our son in good hands. We met with her before the wedding so that she could begin a bond with him and so that we could explain his routines/interests etc.
Hiring her meant that my bridal party and I could all get ready easily without the added stress of caring for a toddler. My son is normally very clingy to me and doesn’t often go to others but Sammy was a miracle worker and they had an instant bond. Sammy took my son for a walk, put him down for a nap (something I always struggle with), fed him and got him dressed for the ceremony. Whilst my son was asleep she did extra jobs for us. She was just fabulous!
Sammy kept my son entertained all day, fed him during meal times, kept him looking presentable (a hard task for my son) and he was so happy and content with her. She kept him in his usual routine and put him down to sleep at his usual time. All of this meant that us and guests could enjoy the wedding and I knew that my son was safe and happy, whilst being included in the wedding.
Thanks so much Sammy!

Felt at total ease

Sammy was brilliant, she made an extra effort even before we met in face-timing the children so they would recognise her when she met them. We have 2 children who required two different bedtimes and we were able to drop them both off when the children were ready and Sammy welcomed them in and took care of them until we were done meaning we could totally relax knowing they were in such good hands!

Thanks you!
