What people say about us
“We met with Clare at Silver Fern Events and got on so well that we started working with her straight away, we had just booked our wedding venue and she worked with us for the next 18 months to help plan our perfect wedding. Clare was happy to travel to meet with us in Exeter and to the venues we were using in St Ives for wine and food tasting and pre-production at our second day venue on the beach for the music festival. Clare was incredibly easy to work with, nothing was too much trouble and her ideas and input really made a difference to us and our families.
As our wedding was a two day event, Clare stayed overnight to help the bridal party with all decorations and last minute planning and to ensure that the second day was set up, decorated and organised without us having to worry about anything on our wedding night. Clare’s attention to detail, organisational skills and presence on the day ensured we were able to enjoy our wedding safe in the knowledge that someone was there to handle any issues. We would highly recommend Clare to take care of your wedding plans.”

Clare is a fantastic organizer & coordinator , I am still a little bit amazed how smoothly EVERY detail was taken care of. The venue was a windy Kent beach, parking a nightmare and access tricky to say the least. The ‘spilling onto the beach’ was not to be, but none of this mattered thanks to careful consideration given to selecting an appropriate marquee for ‘eventualities’. Although a late night, Clare was up early the next day ensuring everything was cleared and only our footprints were left. The party was a 70th birthday & ‘thank you’ combined for 150 people who are still talking about it.
Clare at Silver Fern Events understood our brief from the off. She has the attention to detail down to a fine art. All of her contacts where professional and friendly, they all work very well as a team and on the day there was not one mistake. Clare will go that extra mile for you to make sure your day goes smoothly. While we had a vision of how we wanted our wedding to be, Clare was creative in her thinking and her communication was second to none. Clare is a special lady in every way and I would recommend her immensely.

We recently hired Clare from Silver Fern Events to be our onsite wedding co-ordinator at Worden House. I wanted to find someone who I could trust to take on the smooth running of what was going to be the most important event of my life and she totally met the brief and our high standards. From the first meeting, Clare was courteous to deal with, full of energy and approached the wedding day with great enthusiasm. Her presence completely took away any pressure that I felt so that I could sit back and enjoy myself. I would recommend her services to anyone and everyone.

We planned a ridiculously complicated wedding involving 4 venues over 2 days. Everything had to be moved from venue to venue, packed up and re-set-up in a different layout. We are talking loads of props – from pot stands, stepladders and lobster pots to flowers, bunting and gigantic paper pom-poms. We only had two briefing meetings with Clare yet her and team were absolutely brilliant. It was like the fairies had been in and waved their magic wand. They worked really hard and in hot weather. You can trust Clare to do exactly as instructed so you can just forget about everything and enjoy your day or days!

Deciding to book Clare at Silver Fern Events as an on-the-day coordinator for our wedding was the best decision we made! She was efficient and organised, willing to help out with anything that needed doing, and lovely throughout. She meant that we could relax and enjoy the day knowing that everything was in safe hands and we completely trusted her to make the right decision about any issues that came up. The wedding was at home rather than in a venue so it proved essential to have someone like Clare in charge! In addition to coordinating the day itself, she helped us with suggestions for local suppliers and contacted our suppliers to confirm last minute details beforehand. I would thoroughly recommend Clare if you are looking for a wedding day co-ordinator.

Despite the time difference, when you did come back to me you were always thorough and I had confidence that everything was moving along. I know mum found it very good that we had you on board and you reduced her stress levels significantly! You had good ideas, thought through potential problems/issues etc and offered solutions. You went that extra mile. Was great to have you there on the day as well to manage last minute logistics.

I would certainly recommend Silver Fern Events to friends for parties or weddings etc. in Devon. Clare’s input and attention to detail was really a great help. We all thought the jazz trio was wonderful and certainly added excellent atmosphere during the early part of the evening.
When I needed to arrange a corporate party for all 350 of our employees I turned to Silver Fern events for help. They could not have been more helpful or efficient, finding a great local venue, handling all the invitations and the RSVP process, organising the catering and DJ, even decorating the venue on the day. The team completely took away the headache that co-ordinating such a large event could have been and everyone had a great time.

Clare at Silver Fern Events was with us every step of the way in planning our perfect wedding. The service we received was superb – professional and extremely personal and she made us feel like our wedding was the only thing that mattered! Living in London meant we were reliant on Clare for recommendation and coordination of local suppliers; knowing we had someone to help us in this way eased the pressure for us considerably.
