Anna & Oliver's wedding 10th December 2016

You certainly deserve your reputation as a crack events organiser. Your secret seems to be that you treat everyone as you would a guest in your own home.

Julian Roup, Bendigo Communications

Dear Sarah

We have received our pictures from Suzanne since returning from our honeymoon and we are so, so pleased with them. They are truly perfect and more than we ever thought they would be. Thank you for recommending her to us.

Most importantly thank you to yourself and your wonderful team for what we can only describe as our perfect day. Everyone is still talking about it now and how perfectly it ran. You really are incredible at making the day perfect and there was not one thing we could even say wasn't exactly how we wanted. In the end even the weather didn't matter as the atmosphere was just fantastic and Suzanne captured some great shots at night in the rain!

Thank you again from all three of us, we really did have the best day of our lives!

Dear Sarah

Just caught up with Nova and she said that the dinner last night went really well, and luckily the rain stopped so you were able to take guests round a tour of the gardens.

She mentioned the drink and food was delicious, table decorated beautifully and timings worked well.

Well done and most importantly she feedback that Norse were happy with the evening and conversation. It was great working with you on this event and thank you for your help.

Many thanks,

Dear Wymondham RFC

I have to say I have been to many events this year and yours was certainly the most professionally organised of all.

I was extremely impressed with the professionalism of Softley Events who organised it.

The speakers were excellent.

Really well done.

Jerry Stone, President Norfolk Rugby

Congratulations on a well organised, very well supported, dinner at Wymondham last week.

I am fortunate to attend many sporting dinners, and I think that the content, timings and quality of food/facilities were all excellent. All our guests had a wonderful time due to the blend of your organisation and listening to imaginative speakers.

Stuart Doughty Centurion Wealth Management Ltd

Just a quick email to say what a brilliant evening we had at the Wymondham dinner last night.

I was treating my friends, who are either Diss or North Walsham members, and they all said that Wymondham’s dinner was far and away the best Rugby Club dinner they have ever attended.

From the efficient organisation, great food served promptly and hot, the absolutely brilliant speakers who had us all in stitches and the big screens and sound system which meant nobody missed any part of the events.

Al in all an evening we will remember for a long time and I was proud to have invited my friends to an evening out which didn’t disappoint in any way.

Please pass on my comments to all your team and anybody else who was involved in putting it all together.

Robert Burton

We just wanted to say thank you again for all your help leading up to and during our special day.
Everything was perfect and your recommendations for flowers, food, venue etc were all spot on.
It is a day we and our guests will always remember.
Thank you!

Steve & Sandy - Sennowe Park Wedding

Dear Sarah
I know we have spoken since the big day but I just had to thank you for all you did to make it so special - especially for me!
I know how much you did, quietly and calmly in the background to make the day run so smoothly and you have a special of thoughtfulness - which makes the difference to everything.
It all went so fast but we are left with very special happy memories.

Fee - Garden Wedding

On behalf of the Management and Staff at Brookfields Utilities UK, I am writing to congratulate you for ensuring our Annual Dinner was such a success. The level of service and attention to detail we received was exceptional and I confirm we did not have one complaint.

It was a superb evening which far exceeded our expectations, this I'm sure was all down to the personal treatment we were given.

Susan Price - PA to BUUK Directors

We would like to say a huge thank you to you all for making our special day more amazing than we could ever have imagined.

We will never forget how perfect everything was so thank you all for giving us your time, care and attention and making it all possible.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for all you did for our wedding. You are truly fantastic! You are calm and collected and from start to finish you took all the stress out of the wedding. You were our guardian angel at our wedding and we will always remember you as that so thank you.

With the trauma of the band cancelling, you stood in straight away to find a solution and that you did. I can't thank you enough for your help with this. You found a replacement who were superb and this meant so much us to us for our big day.

You really are fantastic and we were so very lucky to have you as part of our wedding so thank you.

Best wishes,

Louise and James

Norfolk & Norwich Law Society Dinner 2014


You are the Queen of events and organisation – your presence last night was so calming and reassuring and I was thrilled with how everything went.

The caterers and waiting staff did a lovely job and were so efficient and polite and friendly – food delicious and the tables and decorations looked magnificent – I couldn't have been more proud – I felt I was a magical screen set!

The singers were absolute class – they moved me so much and I think were the absolute icing on a very rich cake. Please pass on to them my huge thanks and my highest regards – a real privilege to have such talent in Norwich – I would pay good money to see them again.

So it was triumph of great team work led by you – the feedback has been overwhelming and extraordinary – I have had so many e-mails of thanks and congratulations. We have set the bar high for next year and I am determined that next year will be even better and I want your involvement again if we may.

Jeanette Wheeler, President Norfolk & Norwich Law Society

Myself and my (now) husband had very clear ideas on how we wanted our wedding to be... We did not want it at a hotel where we had restrictions and had a number of ideas for the meal and activities!

Some might say we were awkward, but I was especially set on what I wanted. However, it did eventually dawn on me that I needed help. I was apprehensive - concerned I would not find anyone who would be as particular as I am, share my passion or understand my creative ideas. All I can say is thank goodness I happened upon Sarah and her team because they took all my worries away.

From the word go Sarah made me feel confident and assured in her... I instantly knew I wanted her to manage our wedding day. She has a truly wonderful and calming nature that eases your mind in an instant... Add to this her overwhelming knowledge and experience running events/weddings, and her attention to detail she makes for the perfect package.

In the run up Sarah took a lot of worry off my mind, but also realised my need to be involved and in control, which I appreciated. On the day she quite simply excelled, I naturally had nerves about how everything would go, but the minute I arrived at the venue I could see Sarah had everything in hand. I sat back, relaxed and enjoyed the day (as did all our guests) as I knew Sarah had it covered.
I can't put it much better than my husband did in his speech when he told our guests that I'm a hard person to impress and that he wanted to personally thank Sarah because she more than impressed me and her being involved made me relax! I actually became rather fond of her during the planning stages and actually feel slightly sad now It's all over... I may have to start planning a party!

I'd recommend Sarah and her team in an instant and feel truly lucky I found her. She genuinely made the day!

Lisa Bryant - Voewood - June 2014

We are very lucky to have Sarah Softley managing Sennowe Park as a venue for weddings. She is calm, friendly and efficient and takes great care to keep us informed throughout the development of each event. It is wonderful to be able to relax and know that our precious house and park will be beautifully looked after on the day and that there will be no hiccups.

Virginia Temple-Richards, Sennowe Park

Sarah, I cannot thank you enough for your help and support last week. Knowing you were looking after everything was such a huge relief as I really couldn’t find the strength to deal with anything more. Your calmness and your wonderful staff really did help to make what was always going to be a difficult day manageable. My sincere thanks again.

Jo Bryan

I have to say, my party has become legend already in King’s Lynn and I cannot thank you enough for all that you did. I knew you would have everything covered and boy was it done so well... It will be a great memory for the rest of my life. I’m sure we will see more of each other and please keep us in mind with any other functions you have that you think we may enjoy. My sincere thanks for a great weekend.

Mark Mills

We had the most fantastic weekend and all because of you so a huge thank you all round. The flowers, goodie bags and little extra touches where all beautiful. The Archery was the best fun ever and such a good idea and the food was exquisite and we continued to comment on it the following day. …..I would not hesitate and have already recommended you to several colleagues who are planning events next year and I will definitely recommend you through work etc as well”.

Anna Anderson, London

Well Done !!!, once again you have kept to your promise of giving us a professional service of an evening with the ‘Wow Factor’ and Clive our CEO, wonders how we will ever ‘Top it’ There was a great atmosphere all evening and the staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves the feedback from them was all positive, so once again Sarah, well done and thank you. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

Susan Price – PA to BUUK Directors - Brookfield Utilities

Raising awareness of our data centre business to the local community is challenging. Holding events and inviting local businesses along has proven to be one of the most successful ways to promote the business. We discovered Softley Events. They are knowledgeable, helpful, professional and, above all, a delight to work with. Having worked with them on more than one occasion, we would have no hesitation in both using Softley Events again, (which we plan to do), or in recommending them to anyone else. If you are planning an event, Softley Events is really the ONLY place you need to go.

Alex Rabbetts, Director -MigSolv

Thank you for putting on such a wonderful event. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and I received several emails the next day saying this. I'm sure that we will be able to work again in the future.

Mark Curtis, Partner, Larking Gowen

Tuesday night’s Dinner was magnificent. Everyone to whom I have talked has been simply blown away by the quality of the organisation and has heaped praise on you and your amazing facility to ‘get it right’ and your immaculate attention to detail. Thanks are due also to your wonderful staff .

John MacKay, Chairman Wymondham RFC

I would like to thank you for your professional service, it has been a pleasure to work with you.
The personal approach you gave, went so much towards making the evening so enjoyable and your commitment to ensure it was a success was second to none. I would also like to thank you for giving me the advice for the evening entertainment, the comments I have received have been great.

Susan Price - PA to Managing Director, GTC

I just wanted to say well done on pulling off such an amazing event on Saturday. I know how much work goes into an event of that scale and it all ran so smoothly and guests were clearly having a wonderful time. A fabulous venue, the entertainment was fantastic and Olivia Colman (‎ was charming and did a great job as MC. I thought that the 2 films were very powerful and really brought home the message. Well done to you both and all of the committee and huge thanks for your support.

Amy Cartlidge, Fundraising Manager, Target Ovarian Cancer

We always look forward to the Think Pink Ball with great anticipation, after several fantastic events it is amazing that somehow you and your pink team exceed expectations and improve every time. Open venue looked amazing, we were treated to fabulous food and outstanding entertainment from start to finish. Our guests were blown away with what they described as the event of the year.

Robert Todd, Partner, Feilden & Mawson LLP

We had a lovely time and the day was magical.

The venue, staff, food and service were exceptional and we’ve had some lovely comment from our family and friends. Thanks for all your help.

Emma & Tristan, Sennowe Park Wedding 2011

Everything was amazing! I cannot thank everyone involved enough x

Simon & Rachel, Kimberley Hall Wedding 2011

Emma was a complete star, I've been in charge of many large events and am used to working with events teams and I can honestly say Emma was perfect. She was always there when you needed her, even when you didn't think you needed her, nothing was a problem or too difficult, and yet she blended into the background so you didn't notice her when you didn't need her. Well done Emma!

Alastair & Steph, Buddhist Ceremony & Reception 2011

Thank you so much for being so amazing! You were the ultimate wedding events manager on the day - I'm still grateful that you had a needle and thread to hand!

It made such a difference having someone so very capable in charge of making the day run to plan. Everyone was raving about you after the day.

Thank you so very much. Madi & Rob

Madi & Rob, Alice in Wonderland Themed Wedding 2011

Helen and Chris, Wedding 2011

Thank you for helping us organise the most amazing day: people are still raving about the food; the magician may have got at least one other wedding booking out of it. I will never forget the sight of two of the couples who dared to dance...I have never seen them dance together in such a romantic way; and the entertainer.....amazing!!!! Sue and Malc
