With the kind permission of the bride and groom, we’d like to share the minigolf wedding of Dawn and James Saunby, which took place on the 4th of August at Newton House Barns in South Derbyshire. The Saunbys chose to entertain their guests with a full entertainment package from Putterfingers which included a Supersize minigolf course complemented by a set of Garden Games.
If you’re wondering what the garden games are, you can find out by following the link above. The Saunbys went for Space Hoppers, Four in a Row, Croquet and Skittles. At their Derbyshire minigolf wedding these games were positioned around the minigolf course for guests to have a go at, either while waiting to play minigolf or just for the pleasure of knocking over skittles, bouncing around on a space hopper, puzzling over the next move in four in a row, or pegging out at croquet. It all made for a genteel wedding party – except perhaps for the space hoppers which are huge fun but require leaving your dignity behind before you get on!
It really was a charming wedding and we thoroughly enjoyed setting up the Supersize course and chatting to the lovely guests. We wish Dawn and James a very happy future together!
Putterfingers are attending two wedding shows in the near future, both in East Anglia. We will be exhibiting at:
For over ten years Putterfingers have been diligently supplying crazy golf to wedding parties to make sure the guests have a fun time. We beaver away behind the scenes delivering and setting up the courses, dealing directly with the venue or with the bride and groom and their family. We supply the best crazy golf equipment for hire and we’re nice people, so it’s lovely to get a bit of recognition from time to time. This week hen party planning website GoHen have included us in the Top 50 UK Wedding Entertainers Guide. Here’s what GoHen said about us:
We’ve always known that minigolf is just as entertaining as magicians, casinos, singers, bands, karaoke, fairground rides and dancers. So it’s good to see our crazy golf hire service listed alongside all those other favourite wedding party entertainers.
As GoHen say, ‘Sometimes weddings can a little bit boring. There, we said it! But while the bride and groom are off posing for the perfect wedding photo, guests can sometimes get a little bit lost.’
We’ve always done our best to make wedding parties more fun by giving guests a challenging but enjoyable game that can be played by all ages. What better way to bring wedding guests together than letting each one grab a putter and get on the minigolf course? Everyone from Grumpy Gramps to Tiny Tim can have a go, and that’s when the smiles start spreading around the wedding party. Crazy golf isn’t terribly noisy, so that guests can actually hear each other speak, and that helps them to socialise. They can take the game as seriously or light-heartedly as they please. Uncle Fred might want to place a bet on a game, whereas Auntie Mabel might just wat to have a friendly game with the kids. Either way, it works and is absorbing fun for everyone.
Portable crazy golf hire couldn’t be simpler. We deliver and take away a premium crazy golf course complete with everything needed for a wedding party to have a fun game. Just call us on 08450 570321 a minimum of two weeks before the event, and we’ll do the rest!
We’ve been doing the rounds of quite a few wedding fairs recently, tempting brides and grooms to add minigolf to their big day and make sure their guests of all ages have fun. Hockwold Hall. Bedford Lodge, The Forum in Norwich, the Norfolk Showground, the Newmarket Wedding Show, the Take My Hand wedding show in Bury St Edmunds … brides and grooms at all these shows have loved the idea. In addition to our well-known minigolf course hire, we have expanded our wedding entertainment offer with a ‘pick & mix’ range of garden games and entertaining traditional face-in-hole boards.
It’s now even more fun to create your wedding entertainment package. Choose the selection of games and activities you think will be perfect for your guests, and we’ll take care of delivery, collection, and set-up as well if you’re not too far away from our warehouse in Norfolk. When you plan your wedding celebrations, you can consider the space you have available and choose the right combination of minigolf course / giant wooden games / face in hole boards / photo wall / kissing booth etc. to make sure that everywhere they look, guests have something fun to do for a few hours. Pick & mix is like a sweet shop where you get to choose the goodies you want at your wedding!
Everyone can get involved, from young to old, as the games are as challenging as you want to make them. From croquet and skittles to ping pong and giant Jenga, having a selection of mini-games spread around your minigolf course makes sure that nobody has to wait their turn to enjoy themselves!
