Here is a selection of comments from some of our clients and partners, talking about their experiences with Safe and Sound Event Childcare.
We receive lots of great feedback from our events. There are more testimonials on our Facebook and Twitter pages too.
"I just wanted to say how wonderful I thought everyone from the crèche was at the wedding on Saturday. My baby Olivia can be very shy with people she doesn't know but the ladies made her so comfortable... She only cried when I waved at her haha. She seemed so content and happy to play with the other children and we were so impressed with the way you all played with her throughout the whole day. It made me feel much more at ease when she goes to nursery in the future."
-- Abi, Guest, Engrave Hall
"Have been trying to find time to sit down and say 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 crèche 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 kids. Many thanks and have a great summer."
-- Nicky, Bride, South Farm
"When one of our couples lets us know they are planning to have lots of children attend their wedding, we always recommend they hire professional child care suppliers who can ensure that their day is just as much fun for the children as it will be for them.
We were so lucky to meet Stephanie from Safe and Sound Event Childcare last year through our membership of The UK Alliance of Wedding Planners Ltd. Recommending Safe & Sound to our clients is always an easy decision. The team are so professional and friendly and our clients always comment on how great they are with the children.
They are now our first choice.
-- Dominique Douglas, Director, Stylish Events
"I am sorry it has taken me so long to write this email. Sarah and Nick's wedding seems such a long time ago now. I would just like to thank you and your staff for an excellent crèche. All of the children had a great time - one not wanting to leave for a moment to have photos and we thoroughly appreciated the quality of the activities and staff. The parents had a super day and felt confident their children were in good hands. You thoroughly deserve your excellent reputation."
-- Yvonne, Mother of bride, South Farm
“I thoroughly recommend Safe and Sound Mobile Crèches. From our first enquiry Stephanie felt like the right person to support our family children – all very young (four children 6 years and under) during our daughters wedding. I was so pleased with the whole service, particularly their flexibility, nothing was too much trouble and the children were very happy in the care of Steph, Suzanne and Catherine. They even helped us get the children ready in their bridesmaids and page boy outfits. Lots of fun activities were provided and winter walks organised. The children happily ran between the wedding activities and the crèche/playroom. In the evening the staff babysat in the rooms which worked brilliantly. Catherine even wrapped little Henry up very warmly and walked him round the star-lit grounds in his pushchair to get him off to sleep for us. I cannot recommend them all highly enough. It is the best use of my money spent this year! A huge thank you to you all.”
-- Penelope, Mother of the bride, South Farm
“We would like to say an enormous thank you for the fantastic service you and your team provided at our wedding. The whole process for organising was so stress-free and so brilliantly executed on the day. All our guests commented on what a fantastic idea the crèche was and how much of a good time all the children were having. It meant our guests could all relax and enjoy the day knowing their little ones were safe and having a great day too. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for the personal attention you gave our daughter. Our hearts were pulled in so many directions wanting to enjoy our day but also ensuring she was having a wonderful time too. Our day would have been very different without your support and for that we are very grateful”
-- Julia, Bride, Westleton Crown
“Many many thanks for all that you did on Saturday for my daughter’s wedding. It looked so wonderful and you and all your staff were absolutely brilliant. Almost everybody commented on how fantastic it was and the children were clearly have the most wonderful time. Please pass on our thanks to all the staff involved and again, very many thanks from us all.”
-- Juliette, Bride, Chippenham Park
“I just wanted to thank Catherine for doing such a great job with Logan on our wedding day. Her manner was extremely calm and confident and meant that it was easy for me to entrust Logan into her care while Andy and I enjoyed our day. This was the first time someone else had looked after Logan and Catherine did everything perfectly, which meant that when we got back to the lodge at the end of the night, it was as though we had bathed and put Logan to bed ourselves.”
-- Melanie, Bride, Spains Hall Estate
“After endless hours without success searching the internet trying to find a reliable trustworthy source for my Wedding child care a friend recommended I speak with Steph from Safe and Sound Mobile Crèches, the service I received was well worth the cost and enabled my guests to relax and enjoy the evening without the worry of looking after their little ones, in fact they were having so much fun it was hard to tear them away at home time!!! I highly recommend Steph and her team and she will give you total peace of mind and a professional service”
-- Lee, Groom, Hinchingbrooke House
“Very belated, but most sincere thanks to Lorraine and the team who helped to provide such a great few hours of fun and enjoyment for out young ones at the reception at the St. Barnabas Centre on 17th May.
I am so sorry that I didn’t manage to greet these very special girls but please do let them know what a great please they cave to both children and parents alike!
Parents (and even one grandmother) who initially thought that especially the younger once of 2.1/2 years might be anxious at the table or playing with unfamiliar children, were amazed and delighted to see the all so happy with scant time to miss them!
We have received so may compliments about the crèche and you may be amused to hear that on the Sunday morning one young girl form the US and Germany had to inspect even the “ smallest” room in our house to search for “ the friends” doe the day before. Twice we scoured the house until other distractions and tree climbing were found. “Thank you” again to you all.”
-- Eleanor, Mother of the Bride, St. Barnabas Centre
“We engaged Safe and Sound to provide a dedicated babysitting service for our almost one year old daughter at our own wedding from the Friday evening all the way through to the Sunday morning. Our daughter was completely at ease with Stephanie from the very start, which meant we were able to relax and focus on our big day without worrying about whether she was OK. She was professional but relaxed and her years of experience providing this service were clear for all to see as she did such a fabulous job of looking after our little one, ensuring that she was involved in as much of the day as possible but knowing when it was best for her to be taken out. Stephanie’s team also provided babysitting services for several of our guests, enabling them to also enjoy the festivities. We would never have been free to enjoy our wedding as we did without Safe and Sound and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other couples and wedding guests.”
-- Emma, Bride, Down Hall Country House Hotel
A huge ‘Thank You’ to Stephanie and her team. From day one they were so professional, especially with the short notice we gave them! As soon as they arrived we felt at ease and relaxed. We didn't want our boys to miss out on their auntie and uncles big day but with myself being a bridesmaid and my husband an usher, we were worried how we were going to look after them and full fill our duties. I knew I wouldn't get this day back. My boys took to the staff instantly and my son was in awe of all of the toys that arrived!! We were able to enjoy the wedding breakfast and speeches, whilst our boys played and had a nap. In the evening my husband and myself were able to enjoy the evening and continue having a good time with the rest of the wedding party knowing our boys were safe and sleeping.
In summary: a professional flexible set up, with the perfect relaxed approach that leaves both parents and children free to enjoy themselves with complete piece of mind.
Would highly recommend!”
-- Gaby, Bridesmaid, Gaynes Park
“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 the 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 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”.
-- Rhona, Bride, South Farm
“Until I met Steph I had no idea what a wedding crèche service really involves and all I knew was that I wanted the children to be part of the day but I also wanted the children's parents to be able to relax and have a good time as well. Steph talked me through the options which were incredibly flexible and together we worked out how best the children would be catered for and entertained - Steph can organise anything from an evening babysitting the night before to a full crèche service including putting the children to bed at the end of the evening. During our wedding the children were able to join in the party at every stage but it meant overall responsibility for them was with Steph rather than their parents.
Steph was brilliant to deal with both in the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself and her superfast response times was hugely appreciated - it made things so much easier especially when dealing with loads of wedmin! I found Steph to be very thorough, professional and friendly all at the same time. Before I met Steph I was apprehensive as to both how children would fit into the day and also who I could leave in charge of these precious little people but when their parents saw how much fun they were having and that the children didn't even bat an eyelid when they came to say hello, they relaxed and had a great time too.
I cannot recommend Steph and her team highly enough and I would definitely use their services again.
Thank you Steph for being utterly brilliant!!!!”
-- Emma, Bride, Marquee
“Stephanie was fantastic on my wedding day and I promised a write up and am catching up finally now after a busy few months! There were a few hiccups on the day, the room the children were in had not been adequately laid out, the goody bags and place names had not been put out and the communication was a little lacking from the venue. Suffice to say Stephanie came and found me after the crèche, gave me a big hug and said that although there were a couple of minor problems the kids had a fantastic time. I felt so at ease in her capable hands! To top off her great service on the day and in the run up, not to mention complete flexibility, the feedback from the parents was immediate! All friends and family when leaving thanked me for organising the crèche (even the dubious ones) and said how wonderful it was to eat dinner in peace! My sister is getting married shortly and was approached before the evening was out by family who would be attending her wedding to see if she had planned to use Stephanie too! At this point my sister hadn't considered it, but booked Stephanie almost straight away to ensure she was available!
A massive thank you goes to Stephanie and her team for making my wedding day special."

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you ‘Safe & Sound Mobile Crèches’ for helping make my wedding day the best day of my life.
I was lucky to be able to have my wedding at Gosfield Hall, however due to a large family and a large number of children (18) - I did not want the children to take the places in the wedding reception when an adult could use it – so I thought of the idea of a crèche. I was provided a list from Gosfield but I found the quotes from the companies they suggested to be astronomical. I then searched and found Safe & Sound Crèche’s through Google and emailed for a quote. I received a very quick reply from Steph, which was much more competitive.
From Day 1 Steph’s communication through email was fantastic. Safe & Sound were also happy to allow a couple of older children in the crèche as well which helped as out. I found that the interaction I received from Steph was personal, friendly and always efficient. It was certainly the easiest company to deal with regarding all my wedding arrangements.
On the wedding day itself the parents were full of praise for the professionalism and loved the fact they could leave their children with no concerns to enjoy the wedding breakfast, even my Bridesmaid who has a 1 year old managed some respite to eat her dinner and her boy received one/one care which was fantastic. Every child loved the crèche, especially the Easter Egg Hunt which was very fittings as Easter Saturday, the older ones even created me a keep sake book which they had signed. I have received fantastic complements since from all parents that how much their children keep talking about it.
I highly recommend ‘Safe & Sound Mobile Crèches’, they helped make my day that extra bit special. Thank you!”
-- Liz, Bride, Gosfield Hall
"Stephanie and colleague entertained at my wedding in Suffolk, Seckford Hall and were amazing, they perfectly integrated the children in proceedings, whilst keeping them amused and relieving the parents to enjoy themselves. Conversely this appears to have become the USP (unique selling point) of our day. Both the children and adults are still talking about it a couple of months on.
Steph's expertise in event management and childcare shone through. I would have no hesitation in using her again or recommending her for any private or corporate functions. Steph - Your service is exceptional and made our day - PERFECT x x"
