Q. There will be children of all ages from 0 to 14 at our wedding, how on earth do we keep them all out of trouble?!

A. Sophia Mainwaring says: A wedding can be a really long day for the little guests. To keep them all busy and entertained we suggest enlisting the help of a crèche company. For example, we at Event Childcare, will set up at your wedding venue with our mobile crèche and activities along with qualified nannies, taking the stress away from you as well as their parents, allowing you all to relax and unwind.

At booking stage we'll ask you about the ages and numbers of children we'll be taking care of, and it's vital this is accurate, as we work within the ratios set out by Ofsted. What's more, if you mention to your coordinator or planner that you're looking into hiring nannies, they'll be able to give you the options of the rooms and spaces available for your crèche company to set up camp.

Some examples of activities include, but are not limited to: bubble machine, bracelet making, tote bag designing, badge making, pebble painting, reading and word games, dress-up box, Lego and Duplo, and toy vehicles. Seasonal crafts such as Easter hat making, bauble painting, Valentine's card making and Halloween mask painting are also an option. What's more, if you're having a themed wedding, let us know and we'll match our activities to it.
