We all know that weddings can quickly become very expensive and the decision to include children can add to the price. Having made that decision you would be well advised to have something to keep them occupied. Wedding ceremonies, speeches and such can be quite lengthy meaning little ones become impatient, fidgety and bored, so before disruption ensues it’s a good idea to have something for them to do. So today we introduce Jade from Astbury Darlings with a possible solution!


Q: How long has Astbury Darlings been going? & What made you start?

We are a new company based in Congleton Cheshire and we have been up and running since October. We decided to start as I wanted a new work career since having my third child in May. I have always worked in childcare and with having three children of my own I have a pretty good idea of what children enjoy playing with and exploring. So I felt confident in starting a new business which focuses on entertaining children and encouraging play and fun!


Q: Quite a few people struggle to keep children (& adults) occupied at an all day wedding event. How popular is your soft play & bouncy castle hire for weddings?

So far the soft play and bouncy castle has been very popular at all events including weddings because the equipment keeps the children entertained at weddings for a long period of time. We have had comments such as “The children could have kept playing for hours longer” when we have collected equipment. The children love to explore the variety of equipment we provide and the ball pit is always a hit for hours of fun! The equipment is so versatile we can tailor packages to suit any size, space and venue indoors at a hotel or home for example or outdoors in a garden or under/outside a marquee.


Q: Bride & Groom are obviously busy on their Wedding Day. What can they expect from Astbury Darlings when they book with you?

If we are booked for a wedding we discuss prior to the wedding day the package, its contents, size and the space in which it is for indoors or outdoors at the venue. Then on the wedding day we arrive in plenty of time to set up the equipment, before the guests arrive at the venue so it is all set and ready for the children to explore! The bride and groom need not worry about a thing, we take care of the set up and removal efficiently.


Q: What advice can you give to our Brides to Be when it comes to their Wedding Day? (It can be anything).

My advice for Brides to Be is to plan, plan, plan before hand so you can enjoy and relax and let everyone run around for you on your special day! Enjoy every second of your Wedding Day.


Q: What’s your biggest achievement to date? (Doesn’t have to be wedding related).

Our biggest achievement is getting our new business off to a very busy start and having fantastic feed back from parents and guests after each time we hire out our equipment of how the children have had a fantastic time and enjoyed all of the equipment provided. Such positive feedback is amazing.


Q: What does 2016 have in store for Astbury Darlings?

Astbury Darlings has a busy 2016 ahead we will be adding to our equipment collection and as the diary continues to fill we will be providing lots of fantastic fun equipment to keep lots of children entertained at all of events!


With packages starting from the £50 – £60 mark it’s a great way to keep children occupied for long periods of time, and to be honest I’ve been to weddings with a bouncy castle and it kept most of the grown ups occupied as well!
