All through the year, I go to networking events, venue showcases, award evenings and I get to meet lots of lovely wedding suplliers but I don't want to keep them all to myself!

I feel that I offer a high standard of care to my couples and I want this reflected throughout the whole of their wedding planning, so I am very particular about the companies I recommend. If a couple say they have had a bad experience, then I don't recommend them any longer.

So, it's come to that time of year when I update my 'FRIENDS' page. You will find some amazing companies right here on your door step and I hope this helps you find the right suppliers for your wedding.

So click on over and check em out -

Rock up and Play

Rock Up and Play provides tailor made mobile creches, event nannies and venue babysitting for weddings, corporate events and family gatherings. At a wedding this leaves you time to get ready, get married and not feel too bad about having a glass of bubbles. 
Their expert childcare service works across Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire, and could be persuaded to travel further depending on requirements.

They can provide mobile creches transforming a space into a child friendly environment where not only will the children be busy having fun, but they will also be feeling safe and secure.
Or perhaps you need a event nannies? This nanny service is tailored to meet the individual needs of the children and the parents, ensuring that the day is as stress free as possible.
They also do 'venue babysitting' which can either be booked to follow on from our daytime event childcare, allowing your event to carry on smoothly, or as a stand alone service. We care for the children in the comfort of their room at the venue. They can even carry out the children’s bedtime routine, and tuck them up for the night leaving you to enjoy your evening.

Rock and Play was founded as a result of a desire to bring the ethos of home childcare to an event environment. Catherine is passionate about childcare and has extensive experience of caring for children of all ages, from babies up to teens. She is a mother to 4 children and understands the needs of different age groups.

Catherine says; Our high quality and caring service allows parents to leave their children in our professional care with confidence. This peace of mind enables them to fully participate in the event, knowing that their children are safe and secure, and having fun in the best possible care.
Our childcare service is designed specifically to suit the individual needs and interests of the children. Prior to events we gather information from the parents to help us in selecting resources and activities that are of interest to the children. This ensures the children have a truly memorable day with us.
We support learning through a large array of play activities. If there is a safe enclosed outside area then we can provide outdoor toys and activities. The babies have their own safe zone with appropriate equipment, and a wide range of age appropriate toys and resources, including sensory and textured activities.
Safety is taken very seriously, all staff have police checks and the company is fully insured.
We are committed to offering a professional reliable service, putting children’s interests first, so parents can kick back and relax!

Sounds great to me! A new mum... 

Love Sally xx
