Rave reviews

We love getting feedback on our services, here are some, testimonials that we'd like to share with you

Wedding Nanny : Lyde Court, Hereford, HR1 3AE

Just wanted to say thank you again for your childcare at your wedding - it was so lovely to have the reassurance the both boys were being well-cared for and were happy.  Rufus is still talking about you! 

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company to others and are so pleased that we were able to book you for our wedding as it made a real difference to our weekend.

Wedding Creche : Walton Park Hotel, Clevedon, BS21 7BL

A huge thank you to you and your colleague for the crèche you provided at our wedding.

It honestly surpassed my expectations by miles.

The girls absolutely loved doing crafts with you and Olivia has her makings displayed proudly in her bedroom.

 Jacob was devastated when you both left, he had so much fun with you both he didn't want you to leave.

Your provision made us both so relaxed that the children were happy and enjoying themselves that we could both concentrate on enjoying our special day.

You brought everything with you tailored to the different interests of each child.

I honestly cannot thank you enough and would definitely recommend you my fellow mummy friends.

Thank you!

Stephanie, April 2017


I just wanted to say a very big Thankyou from myself, Chris, Jessica and Jonty.

The children had a wonderful time with you at Poppy's wedding and I could not believe how well Jonty took to you.

You must tell me your secret! He normally won't let me leave the room, let alone leave him with someone he doesn't know. 

He talks about you every day and asks when he will see you again.

Wedding nanny and creche : Berkeley Castle, GL13 9BQ

Catherine and her team helped us out at our daughter's wedding.

Catherine personally looked after 10 month old Henry - our grandson and son of bride and groom. She was excellent with Henry and he was very comfortable with her. She looked after him fairly much all day from midday to midnight taking away all the stresses from us all.
 
Her team of 2 more overly ladies also proved an activity / crèche for 4 other young children aged from 5 up to 9. It's a long day for young children at weddings and without this they would have been fed up and bored, instead they had an amazing time.

I can certainly recommend Catherine and her services. Absolutely excellent.

Jess and I just wanted to say a big thank you for your help at our wedding.

It certainly left us to have a worry free evening for our wedding.

Many thanks again 

Matt, December 2016


Wedding nanny : Merriscourt, OX7 6QX

Bringing up Rock Up and Play to our wedding was one of the best decisions we made.

Catherine not only made all the children feel at ease (including one particularly shy 1-year-old, who took to Catherine almost immediately), but was so much fun that our 4 year old nephew was asking the very next day if he was going to be seeing her again!

The parents appreciated the service greatly, and that Catherine was always close-by meant that they could easily drop in and see their children if they wanted to.

Your guests - if they’re not familiar with this kind of nanny service - might be a bit apprehensive at first … but we guarantee, they’ll be thanking you for it afterwards. The adults get to enjoy a nice, relaxed wedding ceremony - and the kids have a great time too.


Thanks again, Catherine. 

Colin and Victoria, December 2016


Wedding creche : The Slaughters Manor House, Gloucestershire, GL54 2HP

Thank you for everything you did for us and all the children on the day.

I imagine it was a little chaotic to say the least but it all seemed to be under control and we had a wonderful stress free day without having to worry if the children were ok and being looked after.

You run such a great service and in particular all the work you do up front with the venue and individual parents leading up to the day is fantastic for busy stressed brides to be!

Kirsty, November 2016

Wedding creche : Berwick Lodge, Bristol, BS10 7TD

When we were organising our wedding we didn’t want to exclude children from our wedding day, we wanted everyone to enjoy it, so it needed to be fun for friends and family with children and those without.

There were 22 children altogether ranging from age 2 to 11 at the wedding (with all the potential to be mayhem…).. It was important for us that they enjoyed the day too and didn’t get bored, as it was going to be a long day.

So we asked Rock Up and Play to come along and set up a crèche for a few hours while we (all the adults) sat down for our wedding breakfast (a bit of sanity time too!).

The children had a picnic lunch and snacks at the crèche and ate a hot meal later when the crèche had finished.

Rock Up and Play were brilliant they set up the crèche in a separate room of the hotel, with a wide variety of toys for all the age groups, (plenty of dinosaurs for our son….) and a few craft tables which were very popular.

As soon as the children entered the crèche, there was no looking back, they were off to have fun, and it was great to see them settle so quickly. Catherine and her team had made the space really inviting, safe and fun.

All the children had a fantastic time and when the crèche was over they had great fun in showing parents all the amazing things they had made.

My husband and I along with our guests had the most amazing day. We were able to relax and enjoy our dinner knowing that the children were happy, safe and being looked after by Catherine and her team.

Thank you for providing such a brilliant service you really helped make the day a great success. All the parents commented on how great the crèche was and how much the child/children enjoyed it and really appreciated the wedding being child friendly.

I highly recommend Rock Up and Play to anyone planning a wedding or an event.

Thank you

Evening Babysitting : Wyck Hill House Hotel, The Cotswolds, GL54 1HY

Thank you so much, you were so fantastic with all of the children.

See you next time!

Camilla, October 2016


Wedding creche : Cowley Manor, GL53 9NL

We used Rock up and Play for our 2 year old and a few others are our wedding and Catherine and her team were amazing from start to finish.

We met at the venue a few months before to get to know us and Catherine made contact with the other parents in advance to introduce herself and find out what the children like and don't like.

On the wedding day we couldn't have asked for more. The children warmed to Catherine straight away, and loved the toys she brought. Catherine even baby sat until the early hours so we could carry on the party

We rated Rock up and Play so highly, we used them again to look after several children for a day when we were staying in the Cotswolds for another wedding.

Couldn't ask for any more

James, September 2016

Wedding Creche : Private House, Old St Mellons, Cardiff

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you (& your team) so much for looking after Scarlett so brilliantly on Saturday.

You provided such a professional and caring service, we were able to relax and enjoy the wedding.

I don’t take lightly leaving my daughter with new people but I felt completely at ease with your team, Scarlett responded so well to them all and I was very impressed at the patience and dedication shown by all.

I know Scarlett had a great time with you all.

Camilla, September 2016
 

Event nanny, wedding: Cripps Barn, GL7 5BA

Just a quick email to say we both really appreciated you looking after Jack and Aves yesterday.

You enabled us to enjoy the day, knowing that the kids were in very capable hands!

Aves was still wearing her dress at 11am today - very cute.

Thanks again

Duncan & Michelle, September 2016

Wedding creche : Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury, GL8 8XA

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help with the children on our wedding day.

You looked after the children so well and they were very happy and content all day.

I really appreciated you arriving on time and bringing so may toys for the children to play with. They had a wonderful time

Thank you

Laura, August 2016


Wedding nanny : No 4 Clifton Village, Bristol, BS8 4HY

I am so glad I hired you for the day as I felt Tommy  was not only safe and being looked after but that he was also having fun and that the day was made special for him. 

Bella just woke up and asked if you were coming again today - I wish!

Thanks again for helping to make my day so special and very relaxing!!

Vicky, July 2016

Wedding creche : Four Seasons Hotel, Hampshire RG27 8TD

Just to say thank you to you and your team for looking after Joshua and Emilia on 2nd July.

They had so much fun, and it was so reassuring that I knew they were having a great time and being looked after so well.

Thank you again 

Vicki, July 2016


Wedding nanny : Berkeley Castle, GL13 9BG

I just wanted to say thank you so much for providing us with such a fantastic nanny.

She was wonderful and made me feel so reassured. Coupled with the regular text and photo updates it enabled us to have a great wedding day off.

I would definitely recommend your service.

Venessa and Arthur, July 2016

Wedding nanny : Priston Mill, BA2 9EQ

Catherine provided an excellent nanny service for our wedding and kept the children entertained all night.

She was friendly and efficient and it really helped us relax at our wedding knowing our son was in great hands.

Katie, July 2016


Wedding creche : Berkeley Castle, GL13 9BG

Now we are back from our amazing honeymoon, we would like to thank you so much for making our wedding day so perfect!

You were such stars, the children absolutely loved their time with you and enjoyed showing everyone what they had made, they didn’t want you to leave!

It was so great to feel the children were being cared for while everyone enjoyed the wedding breakfast, such a fabulous idea and we are so pleased you were there.

We had a magical day and can’t wait to see the video and photographs!

Thank you again

Mari-Anne & Adam, June 2016


Wedding nanny - Bibury Court, GL7 5NT

I just wanted to e-mail and thank you for the excellent service that you provided for us at Bibury Court last weekend.

Alex seemed very happy with you and it allowed us to have some much needed time to relax in the evening.

We would definitely use your service again. 

Catherine, June 2016


Wedding nanny : Berkeley Castle, GL13 9BG

We asked Rock up and play to look after our one year old daughter, Henrietta, during our wedding.  From the moment we spoke with Catherine we felt confident that she would be in good hands. 

Catherine went out of her way to help and as our little girl had been a little clingy leading up to the wedding, at very short notice we asked if Catherine could drop by to meet her the evening before, she agreed without hesitation.  As soon as Catherine arrived, Henrietta was immediately at ease, all clinginess disappeared and she just wanted to play with Catherine crawling straight over to her. 

It made such a difference to our day knowing that Henrietta was happy and relaxed so we didn’t have to keep checking up on her every two minutes.

We had four other flowergirls at our wedding (aged 3-11 years) who Catherine also played with and was happy to keep an eye on, despite her primary care being for our daughter.  All of the girls loved Catherine and were entertained to such an extent they forgot about the main wedding party.  We checked up on them during the day and they were so engrossed with what Catherine was doing, on most of the occasions they didn’t even notice that we were there. 

Catherine judged the day perfectly, bringing the girls into the wedding for just the right amount of time that meant they were part of our special day, but didn’t get bored.

In the evening, Catherine took the girls back to the house and put them to bed ensuring that whilst tired, we were left with five very happy girls. 

We would have no hesitation in leaving Henrietta with Catherine again - she really was fantastic!"

Charlotte, April 2016


Wedding creche : Burger and Lobster Restaurant, Bath, BA11BZ

Big thank you to you and your team! Incredible job and exactly what was needed.
My kids had the best day and so did we. Just wonderful to know that the kids were being so well looked after so we could speak to all our guests.

Many thanks

Sarah, March 2016

Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

Rock up and Play was a huge success at our wedding.

Catherine was fantastic with the children and their parents and all the children loved it.

It allowed all the guests to really enjoy the day and know that their children were having a great time too.

Why Did you book this Supplier? - Catherine responded quickly and she came across very professional and had a wide range of services.


Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

Thank you for your time and attention to detail.

All of the children who were separated from the formal ceremony at Berkeley Castle had a fantastic time with the people at Rock Up And Play!

Why Did you book this Supplier? - The wedding coordinator at Berkeley Castle recommended Rock Up And Play to us. And we're very glad they did!


Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

Of all the money spent on our wedding, hiring Catherine as our wedding nanny was the best invest-ment of all.

It was such a relief to have someone we trusted who we could rely on to look after our baby daughter throughout the day, so we were able to think about our wedding day and not worry about the baby!

Our daughter settled very happily with Catherine and seemed at ease for most of the day.

Catherine was always in the right place at the right time, so that our daughter was involved in the day but not being overwhelmed by the wedding guests.

Why Did you book this Supplier? - It was suggested to us by our family and we were so glad that we booked Catherine, we couldn't have managed without her help.


Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

Rock up and Play supplied a creche for our wedding. Running a creche for 24 kids of all ages is no mean feat, and we had lots of really great feedback from parents about how much their kids enjoyed it, how well organised it was, and how much they appreciated a wedding being so child friendly.

As bride and groom, it was great to see the kids having such a good time and to be able to have so many of our friends able to stay through the evening without worrying about having to leave early to get the kids to bed.

Catherine was utterly professional and helpful both on the day and in the run-up, with a terrific 'can-do' attitude that gave us great confidence in her service.

Why Did you book this Supplier? - On the strength of excellent testimonials on their website


Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

Some of the parents were a little cautious before the day but Catherine contacted them all beforehand so they knew what to expect and tailor made the crèche for the children attending.

We have heard nothing but wonderful comments from all the parents – and even those that said that they might not use the facility ended up absolutely loving the fact that the children were so well looked after but not removed from the day, that they could all relax and enjoy themselves with the children part of it but looked after.

The children have all said it was the best wedding ever, and we have recommended Rock up and Play to other couples who have now booked too.

Why Did you book this Supplier?- We had 29 children of all ages attending our wedding and very much wanted them to feel part of our day but to be looked after and not bored.

I found a few suppliers via the Internet but knew as soon as I spoke to Catherine that she would be the right person and company. She was so friendly, relaxed, personal but professional. We definitely made the right decision.


Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

We were really impressed with the service provided, it was wonderful that they took the time to contact all the parents in advance so that you could provide activities specific to each child’s interests.

Every parent told me how happy they were with the service provided and could not speak highly enough of you and the team.

Sally was particularly delighted that baby Ezra had one on one care which made her leaving him in the care of others for the first time a much easier process.


Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

Thanks for your amazing service. Was really great to know all the children were in good hands and had loads of exciting things to do!

Why Did you book this Supplier? - Had amazing customer reviews.


Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

I couldn’t of asked for more from this company. They looked after my daughter whilst I enjoyed my wedding reception.

Reliable, friendly and trustworthy. What an excellent service


Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

Great attention to detail and can do attitude. Couldn't recommend more highly

Why did you book this Supplier?  - Because they sounded the nicest!


Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

Catherine was amazing, our children completely warmed to her.

She was able to help with every re-quest, so we were able to relax and enjoy our day without and concerns.

Many of our guests commented on how wonderful she was.

Why did you book this Supplier? - They were flexible to our needs.

We needed a nanny for the full day of our wedding and evening for our 2 children, so that we could enjoy the day without having to worry about them and they could enjot it too with all their needs catered for such as sleeps, milk, etc. Rock Up and Play were able to provide this service. 


Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016

Very friendly, helpful and efficient. All very upbeat and enthusiastic. A brilliant asset to our wedding as we have a baby and a toddler and had 11 young children in total.


Wedding babysitting : Manor House Hotel, GL56 0LJ

What a lovely professional service!

Catherine looked after my 11 month old daughter whilst I was enjoying my wedding reception.

My daughter woke up in the middle of the night and without disturbing us Catherine got her back to sleep.

I would recommend Catherine and her company to anyone and would definitely use this service again!

Many thanks,

Sam, December 2015


Wedding creche : Berkeley Castle, GL13 9BG

I have asked the parents and they said how wonderful you all were and how much the children enjoyed their time with you both.

It was a huge bonus to have you with us, more than the parents thought and I would not hesitate to recommend you to any future friends that will be getting married-thank you.

Rebecca, December 2015


Wedding creche : Berkeley Castle, GL13 9BG

I just wanted to say how much Jack and James enjoyed your crèche at my brother's wedding.

They couldn't wait to get in there from the minute they were allowed in. Even through the wedding breakfast they kept asking when they could go back in.

They had lots of fun and especially enjoyed all of the arts and crafts that you had available for them.

The DVD at the end of the evening was ideal especially as they were very tired and it gave them the perfect opportunity to relax, so much so that my eldest fell asleep.

I felt very happy and confident leaving them in your care, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services.

Many thanks,

Jenny, December 2015


Wedding nanny : St Pierre Marriott Hotel, NP16 6YA

Thank you so much for looking after Jacob on the day of Sarah's wedding.

It was a great help and made the day even more enjoyable for myself and Sarah.

It was lovely to see Jacob able to enjoy himself and be part of the day but also to have time to play and be safe when away from us.

I would highly recommend you and the service you offer

Many thanks,

Wedding creche : Foxhill Manor, WR12 7LJ

It was the first time I had left the boys with someone I didn't know so I was worried the day would end up being stressful and they wouldn't settle in the crèche. I couldn't have been more wrong!!! The boys enjoyed their day just as much as we did and I felt completely relaxed knowing they were in great hands!

I couldn't be more grateful for the team running the crèche on the day and can't thank you enough for providing such a high standard of care for my children.

I will definitely recommend you to friends and family.

Thank you again

Wedding creche : Cherwell Boathouse, Oxford, OX2 6ST

We were extremely happy with the care and entertainment that you provided our son (age 4) with. 

When we arrived at the reception there was a multi-car race track ready to go (as per our son's interest) and he was completely at ease with your staff straight away. 

We particularly appreciated that you asked about his interests in advance as that meant he was immediately distracted from us and we were able to socialize.

Thank you !!!! 

Rebecca, October 2015


Wedding babysitting : Walton Castle, BS21 7AA

I was really happy with the babysitters provided at Rachel and Chris’s wedding and felt very comfortable leaving Charlotte (although asleep) in the safe hands of Natalie after only a short chat with her beforehand.

Both babysitters were professional and personable and I would definitely recommend Rock Up and Play for this type of babysitting.

Katie, October 2015


Wedding babysitting : Walton Castle, BS21 7AA

It was the first time I hired a babysitter for my two year old son and I was pleased with the overall service.

The babysitter arrived on time and was very nice.

Natasha, October 2015


Wedding nanny : Bibury Court, GL7 5NP

We were delighted with the babysitting service.

Nicola arrived on-time and came pre-armed with all the relevant information about the children.

She was lovely with our eldest daughter who has been asking if she is having the same baby sitter again ever since!

Wedding creche : Manor House Hotel, GL56 0LJ

I thought your service was brilliant, it meant my husband and I could enjoy the day without worrying.

I know Morgan especially loved all the crafts you'd bought along.

Lucan also was seemed very happy, in fact I left him with you a lot more than I planned to do but he seemed very settled so didnt want to overwhelm him by taking him away. My only concern was, that you both had hardly any break at all, it was such a full on day and all the children were at such challenging ages do you feel one break was enough??!! I have no suggestions on what to do differently,

I thought the whole service from the emails before the wedding , right through to sitting with Lucan when he was asleep was wonderful.

Morgan had already met you at another wedding , so I already knew you were great.

Many Thanks again

Rock up and Play provided a brilliant nanny service at my sister's wedding.

I have 18 month old twins and a three year old who played happily and safely all day.

I felt really comfortable knowing my children were part of a special day and yet relaxed enough knowing they were well taken care of.

Thank you.

Vicki, October 2015


Wedding creche : Hedsor House, SL6 0HX

A huge thank you from us for the wonderful care you and your team provided for Oli yesterday.

He had a wonderful time. It was lovely that we could relax and enjoy ourselves knowing he was in your care.

He and Gabs were full of their fun day this morning.

We cannot thank you enough.

Best wishes

Wedding nanny : Bibury Court, GL7 5NP

You were brilliant last weekend at the Bibury Court wedding, looking after our two boys and a few hangers on!

We couldn't have done it without you there and, darn it, we actually relaxed and had a great time, safe in the knowledge that the boys were happy and safe with you.

I couldn't recommend you and the Rock Up & Play set-up enough and will have to invent excuses for weekends in the Cotswolds just to use you again!

Thank you so, so much.

Hannah, September 2015


Wedding nanny : Elmore Court, GL2 3NT

Hi Catherine,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help on our wedding day.

You were brilliant, Ben and Jessica really warmed to you and were so happy, I couldn't have hoped for more.

As one of our guests said, you were like a real life Mary Poppins!

We were able to really enjoy the day and not worry about the children.

Thank you so much.

Abi, August 2015


Wedding creche : Cogges Farm, OX28 3LA

Hi Catherine,

We're now back from honeymoon and I wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for providing the creche for our wedding.

Running a creche for 24 kids of all ages is no mean feat, and we've had lots of really great feedback from parents about how much their kids enjoyed it, how well organised it was, and how much they appreciated a wedding being so child friendly.

As bride and groom, it was great to see the kids having such a good time and to be able to have so many of our friends able to stay through the evening without worrying about having to leave early to get the kids to bed."

Stay and Play, Wytham Village Hall, OX2 8QA

The Stay and Play service from Rock Up and Play was just what was needed at our party.

The team arrived in good time, set up many interesting activities for the children, and were a great presence throughout the event.

It was great to have a service that brought everything that was needed for a wide age range of children, and also cleared away everything at the end of the party too.

Highly recommended. Thank you Rock Up and Play!

Catherine, August 2015


Wedding creche : Berkeley Castle, GL13 9BG

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you & all your helpers for their professionalism that was displayed on 29th May 2015 at the wedding of my daughter at Berkeley Castle.

All the parents that used Rock Up & Play services on that day have commented to me how very satisfied & totally relaxed they were with their children & babies in your care.

I would certainly recommend Rock Up & Play to any parent requiring total confidence that their child or baby would be well looked after & entertained whilst they enjoyed themselves without any worries."

Best wishes

Nigel, July 2015


Wedding creche : Bailbrook House Hotel, BA1 7JD

I was very pleased with the crèche. The staff were warm, friendly and happy so my daughters felt safe and secure and actually wanted to stay in the crèche (unlike another one at my sister's wedding!).

There was a great range of activities on offer, in particular the creative activities were brilliant- could rival preschool / school, not just the usual paper and crayons.

My girls throughly enjoyed themselves.

Kind regards,

Kat, July 2015


Wedding nanny : Tortworth Court, GL12 8HH

Rock Up and Play was an invaluable resource for our family during our recent trip to England for my cousin's wedding.

The nanny who babysat during the rehearsal dinner was terrific and she also provided extra-hours after the wedding itself.

The onside creche was a child's dream. They were attentive to the children and had many engaging toys for them to play with while we enjoyed ourselves.

It provided us such peace of mind to know our children were well-cared for and just steps away during the celebration!

I highly recommend Catherine and her team to anyone planning an event or seeking child care.

Courtney, July 2015


Wedding creche : Berkeley Castle, GL13 9BG

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you very much for looking after Hannah and Isla at the wedding crèche at Berkeley Castle on Friday.

Hannah has said how much she enjoyed the crèche and loved all her craft activities. You had such a great range of toys and activities that the children couldn't help but have a good time!

Very many thanks again.

Emma, May 2015


Marquee wedding creche : Private Garden

Rebecca and Hannah loved their time in the wedding creche...there were so many activities and crafts for them to do and the staff were all so lovely and kind. 

Thank you especially for making a fuss of Hannah as it was her birthday! 

We really appreciated being able to relax and enjoy the wedding knowing the girls were so safe and happy – it was a real pleasure to actually be able to finish a conversation!!

I thought it was a wonderful service you offered and would have no hesitation in recommending you to others. 

Sarah, May 2015


Marquee wedding creche : Private Garden

Well what can we say, the service from start to finish was awesome and Charlie even managed to sleep in the barn when he was ready so you must have worn him out.

On Sunday we had to go back into the creche Lucy had set up to check you had gone otherwise he would have definitely wanted to go back.

Thank you so much for your professionalism from the start.

Thanks
Jayne, Sean and Charlie, May 2015

Marquee wedding creche : Private Garden

Just a quick note to say an enormous thank you very much to you and your team for looking after our wedding crèche.

You were so brilliant in the enquiry, questions along the way and on the day. I knew as soon as I chatted to you that you were the right person to help us with creating a great experience for all the children attending our wedding.

We very much wanted our younger guests to feel part of our day but to be looked after and not bored, and we’ve heard nothing but wonderful comments from all the parents.

Sorry that you had to work in a smaller space than ideal and on a bit of a slope, but on the few occasions I did manage to pop in they all looked as if they were having a great time, and some of the children told me on Sunday that it was the best wedding ever! – that was definitely more down to you than to me!

We are more than happy to provide recommendations should you like.

Kind regards and many many thanks once again.

Lucy and Dave, April 2015


Marquee wedding creche : Private Garden

I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you so much for looking after Max and Harry on Saturday at Lucy's wedding. Max loved it and was quite upset that you weren't all there on Sunday morning! It was so nice that Harry could sleep in a cot for the evening and we didn't have to worry about him.

All your staff were brilliant - all very professional and caring. They engaged with the children (and parents!) brilliantly - this is a skill especially when you have never met the kids before! You all listened to what we wanted and carried out our wishes, this put us at ease even more.

Thank you so much!

Jenny, Alex, Max and Harry, April 2015


Marquee wedding creche : Private Garden

Just wanted to say a big thanks to you and your team for looking after William and Jess on Saturday!

The afternoon/evening went so smoothly for all the parents I was with. We were able to relax and really enjoy the meal and evening without worrying.

Other guests who didn’t have children at the wedding commented on Sunday that 'you would never have known there were thirty children there’.

The kids had a great day. They came home yesterday still glowing about the fun they had had having a little bit of freedom but to be able to come and spend time in the seedling marquee!

Thanks again.

Comment from Bristol and Somerset Wedding Award

Such friendly, reliable and adaptable people, at every stage of communication.

Because Catherine and her staff were all very experienced in childcare, they gave me immediate confidence that things were going to be alright! And more importantly that it would be safe.

Catherine was able to offer very good advice for timings and what levels of interest and fatigue the children would experience over a whole day and suggestions of how the they would manage that.

They successfully entertained a range of children from 1 to 14 years. Everyone was playing together beautifully and a film was only put on in the evening at about 7. They had brilliant resources for great games. Both big outdoor options and smaller games and craft for a tighter space. Even little beds and sleeping bags in reserve for the smaller ones.

All the children were 100 percent happy and their parents more so for being able to fully enjoy the wedding. They made me feel that anything was possible, as long as they could plan for it.

They were the best part of our wedding in a way.

We had two of our own kids under 5 years old and had been very worried about how they would fare during our wedding. Catherine and her staff solved the whole problem. Keeping them safe and entertained the whole time.

I requested quotes from various childcare suppliers but Catherine stood out immediately.From the first (email) contact I had with her, her level of customer service was absolutely excellent and set her apart from everyone else.

I am pleased to say that we were very impressed with your service and both Lucy and Laura had a brilliant time. I am told that the boys also enjoyed themselves.

Laura's Dad was delighted with your service, which allowed him to enjoy the wedding safe in the knowledge that she was happy and well looked after.  

With such a wide range of ages and characters you managed to get it just right with all of them.

Many thanks for all your help.

We had such a brilliant time at Gemma and Tom's wedding. It was a really lovely, personal day. I know that George loved it too, especially the time he had with you. It also let us actually take time to fully relax and enjoy our meal, which was lovely and really appreciated. So thank you for that!

It's such a good idea that I've recommended you to a friend who is getting married next year, so you may be hearing from her in the New Year!

We were extremely pleased with the childcare you and your team provided for us at the wedding. We loved the way that you set up a dedicated area for the children that meant they could have their own space in which to play and relax, but they were still very much part of the wedding.

We were also extremely impressed with the wide range of activities you provided. It cannot be easy to keep children of such differing ages happy for such a long time, but the children loved every minute of it.

All of the parents were impressed with your level of service, were very happy and confident to leave their children in your care and, I believe, were able to fully relax and enjoy themselves as they knew that their children were being so well looked after.

Thanks again for everything that you did on the day, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone else.

Deciding to book Rock Up and Play to look after the five children and babies at our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. It was absolutely money well spent.

They were there when we needed them to help, but seemed to disappear into the background when we didn’t. They brought a wide array of toys and activities that kept all the children entertained – they all had an absolutely brilliant day.

Then in the evening they looked after the sleeping children whilst we all danced carefree downstairs.

Thank you so much for helping us. I would recommend your services to anyone.

Thank you Catherine to you and your team for taking such good care of our daughters during Andy and Lis' wedding. It was great to be able to just relax and enjoy ourselves on the night.

Fantastic work. Thanks again!

Thank you for looking after our 17 month old daughter Tilly at our wedding during the evening.

This was the first time we have left Tilly with someone outside of the family and when we first met Katie we felt immediately at ease and Tilly was relaxed in her company too.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Rock Up and Play to anyone else. Thank you

We were very happy with the services of rock up and play.

Our kids were still awake when Catherine showed up and instantly took to her and felt comfortable around her. She even helped us put them to bed, and our oldest was happy for us to leave while Catherine read him a story.

Made us feel very secure and allowed us to really enjoy our night out. Thanks!

The service provided was excellent throughout from the initial enquiry.

The parents really appreciated the contact before the event so they were comfortable leaving their children, knowing they were in good hands.

The staff coped brilliantly with 4 boys aged 5 and under, activities involved reading and play, and the kids were well behaved and content when returned to their parents.

The staff were smart and professional and clearly good at what they do. Several guests commented on what a great service it was and would use it for their own events.

Can't recommend highly enough! Thank you.

Catherine's Rock up and Play childcare service is top notch!  

We were traveling from New York in America for my brother's wedding at Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire UK with our two sons, ages 6 and 4. Catherine was there to help keep the boys engaged and entertained during the day and evening.

As any mom knows, a wedding that lasts around 12 hours from start to end, is quite a long day for two young active boys. Catherine made it a great day not only for our boys, but also for my husband and myself. She tactfully intervened with games and toys when the boys needed it, and allowed for the boys to interact with their family and festivities when it was appropriate for them to do so.

I was concerned about my 4 year old getting tired at the end of the night, and Catherine's solution to this was providing sleeping mats for the boys if they wanted a rest. 

Catherine truly is a professional when it comes to taking care of children's needs.  As a mother of four of her own children, she has a level of experience that all mothers can appreciate.  She answered all of my questions prior to us coming over from America.

She seamlessly set into motion a wonderfully orchestrated day, not only for my boys, but for both my husband and myself as well. She allowed me to fully enjoy my brother's wedding. I gratefully thank her for that!  

I highly recommend Rock Up and Play for any occasion or childcare need that you may have.

We were really happy with the babysitting service as was Elsie and it meant we could relax and enjoy our evening downstairs with our wedding guests! We would definitely use you again when visiting Bibury Court (which we plan to do on our anniversary!)

Thanks again.

I just wanted to thank you and your lovely team for taking such good care of Anna and the other little guests at Martha and Will's wedding this weekend.

Anna had a fabulous time and we thoroughly enjoyed being able to focus on our friends' special day and have a few precious hours together!

We were just so impressed and wanted to let you know how much we appreciated all your hard work.

Many, many thanks again, to you and your team.

Fantastic service all round at a very reasonable price.

We felt totally at ease leaving our children with such a warm and kind person as Catherine.

Thoroughly recommend Catherine and her company.

So many options are available from traditional baby sitting to arranging a play area to keep babies and children occupied during events.

Event nanny, wedding: Cripps Barn, GL7 5BA

With less than a weeks notice Rock Up and Play saved our babysitting woes for my brother's wedding! 

Catherine was incredibly professional and right from the outset we felt very comfortable with the service.  

Catherine understood our needs, was truly brilliant with our son and I would highly recommend her for any event.

Wedding crèche: Bibury Court, GL7 5NT

When we were arranging my daughter's wedding at Bibury Court, a crèche for babies was a must to ensure peace during the service and wedding breakfast.

From the moment you viewed the web site for Rock Up & Play, to arranging a tailor made service for our requirements, the client liaison was thoughtful and efficient.

All the parents using the crèche remarked on how professional and calming Catherine and Sue were with the babies, and  this meant they were able to relax more and enjoy the event .

So the crèche was a key part of ensuring the special day was memorable for all of us.

I wanted to write to you to thank you and your team.

We found you to be incredibly helpful, patient and knowledgeable. What really shone through was how much you clearly love children and that, for us, is the most important thing when leaving our child with anyone.

Thank you too for listening to us - treating him as an individual, letting us feel as though we knew best and you were very happy to take the lead from us where necessary and letting us be as neurotic as we needed to be - it really gave us confidence that he was in good hands but was also very admirable!!!! 

Our day was so much more enjoyable as we were able to relax knowing that Arthur was being well looked after, safe and having fun. I was only sad that he didn't miss us at all!

I will be recommending your services to friends in the future for sure.

Thanks again.

Hannah, November 2013
