How we can help
We’ve planned many bespoke family events of all sizes, including birthdays, anniversaries, stag and hen parties, baby showers and garden parties. Whether you’re celebrating a private milestone with close friends or throwing a grand bash for everyone you’ve ever known, we can help you make it happen. And, more importantly, we’ll make it run smoothly. We work with some fantastic and reliable local companies that provide marquees, food and entertainment.
Our team can do as much or as little as you need, from initial research, gathering quotes and venue possibilities right through to full event planning and management. With this, we’ll plan every step beforehand and can even be present during the event to ensure things run smoothly.

Our standard rate is £25 per hour; please contact us for a more detailed quote to suit your event and requirements.
Case study: Wedding anniversary garden party
Hour Hands helped plan and organise a 10th wedding anniversary garden party for over 200 guests. Our client had a clear idea of what she wanted and asked to take a hands-on approach, with the reassurance that we would be working with her every step of the way.
We worked together over a nine-month period researching, planning and booking all the relevant aspects of the event; including marquee hire, catering and bar staff, event decoration, children’s entertainment, and a vodka luge. We also had a bad weather plan up our sleeves just in case!
In the week leading up to the event, our team was on site to ensure that each element was installed correctly and the marquee was dressed and decorated. The same team were then on hand during the event to ensure it all ran smoothly and the guests were completely happy.
Finally, we returned the following day to work with the marquee company and ensure that everything was taken down and cleared away neatly.
