As you can imagine, with lots of excited children running around during our creches we like to do a site visit before the event to complete a risk assessment and get planning on how the bride would like the Mini VIP's space to look! We managed to kill two birds with one stone a few weeks back and whilst we waited to collect a Play Den we visited Hestercombe Gardens. Hestercombe is so much more than a wedding venue and perhaps this is why it does make such a great spot for a wedding!
Here's how they describe themselves: "Nestled in tranquil countryside and boasting sweeping lawns, three stunning historic gardens and the iconic Ham Stone Lutyens-designed Orangery, it’s no wonder Hestercombe is one of the top wedding venues in Somerset." Sounds wonderful doesn't it? They put on loads of wonderful events for the kids and during nice weather, we'd say this place could definitely be worthy of a day-trip from Bath.
We absolutely cannot wait for this Wedding Creche in lovely Somerset in August! And guess what? All of the children will be French..! EEK we better get practising and printing out some picture cards pronto. We're going to do lots of outdoor activities such as visiting the chickens, playing with our giant parachute, a treasure hunt, a nature walk and definitely have some silly photobooth sessions.
Have a look at our photos from the day in the gallery, everyone was so welcoming- showing us where the wedding reception will be and where the creche is to be set up. We even got to take advantage of their Fathers day BBQ which was super scrummy. Thank you so much for having us Hestercombe- we bet you're feeling a little relieved that the Mini VIPs at this wedding will be supervised! You certainly have one HUGE venue with open lakes and big rock steps so we think our Bride and Groom-to-be have made a really smart choice bringing in the childcare professionals.
