Halloween Party 2017

Published Date: 31st October 2017

Yesterday Perfect Personalised Parties hosted their first Halloween party!

Craig, Managing Director, decided to host a Halloween Party at the ever so popular venue, United Services Club. Perfectly located in Dunstable Town centre for people to visit from far and wide, with ample parking. The decorations were easy and thinking up some games that previously worked at other events. Dress the 'Mummy' is a simple game and involved 5 mum's to be wrapped in toilet roll by the children. Apple bobbing is a traditional game which was also decided to be included.

After weeks of advertising, the day finally arrived. Craig and the team at United Services Club decorated the hall and the doors opened. 75 children and their parents queued to enter and the party began. Dance competition, fancy dress competition and of course all the other games made it a night to remember. After hot food was served, the final half consisted of party dances. The children loved this.... and lots of the parents joined in too!

Craig personally thanked everyone as they left and offered sweets to children and parents. The feedback was amazing, with only good things being said. A lot of exhausted children from all the excitement and I would think a nice early night!

Craig commented after the event "as this was a great success we are going to plan to host this event annually. Next up is our annual Christmas charity event and would like to raise lots of money for local charities." 

Watch this space!.... details to follow this weekend.

2017 in brief...

Published Date: 01st January 2018

Wow what a year!!

March 2017 saw us moving into our 2nd year in business. We started the year even busier than the previous year with bookings flying in from 1st January.

We also added more services to our ever growing services we offer. Chocolate fountains, pamper parties & mobile cocktail master classes to name a few. As always we continued to help out at as many charity and fundraising events as we could fit in and all in all helped raise thousands of pounds. Charities included Keetch hospice, L&D neonatal unit, Lullaby trust, Level Trust, Emily's Star, Mary Seocole, to name a few. As well as this supporting local schools to help raise funds, through fetes and fun days.

Over the summer we worked with Dunstable Town Council & Houghton Regis Town Council at many outdoor events including the Splash Park opening, Party in the Park, Firework displays, National Playday & many more.

October saw us host our first annual Halloween Party at The United Services, Dunstable. This was a huge success with over 75 children in attendance.

December we hosted the annual Christmas Charity Event at HQ Sports Bar, Dunstable and again was a huge success. We raised £600 and donated 35.5kg of food to Dunstable Foodbank.

To finish the year off we then announced our amazing new sister company 'Perfect Personalised Weddings'. This is a new dedicated business to deal with our forever growing wedding demand. Very early days but have seen 2 bookings in the first month of going live!

Wedding & Events Fair 2018

Published Date: 26th March 2018

On Sunday 25th March 2018 Perfect Personalised Weddings hosted their first ever wedding fair. It was held at Peter Newton Pavilion in Dunstable. The aim of the day was for us to showcase the services and business's we offer and use on a weekly basis. We tried to keep it as local as possible and over 95% of the stands were within 5 miles of the venue. We had just over 60 brides come through the door on the day, with them they brought their other half, children, family members and friends. A total of around 200 people.

We only had one of each service there on the day and could have had lots more. We had a huge interest and could have doubled the venue size and still needed more space.

We were in the venue from 9am setting up the tables and putting the prosecco on ice. All the business's arrived by 10.30am to set their stands ready for 12. at 11.45am the nerves were kicking in and a small queue formed outside. At 12 we opened the doors and had a real busy 2 hours and then a steady flow until we packed away at 4pm. Every person was handed a complimentary glass of prosecco or orange juice. Everyone was happy with what was on offer and lots of enquiries for us all to follow up on.

It was a great day had by all and we look forward to holding our next wedding fair later on this year. More info to follow!

The English Wedding Awards 2018

Published Date: 15th Nov 2018

The prestigious annual wedding awards took place this year at St Johns Hotel in Solihull. Perfect Personalised Parties UK were nominated for 'Wedding Planner of the Year' for the East of England.


We arrived nice and early and full of hope that we would win this award. There was tough competition from 6 other companies based in the East of England. We met lots of companies and met some familiar faces too whilst we sat waiting for our category to be presented. It was time.... ''and the nominations for wedding planner of the year 2018 for the East are...'' At this point i look at the list on the screen and thought we wouldn't win this, there is no chance, then....

''AND THE WINNER IS PERFECT PERSONALISED PARTIES UK!''

The shock was real and I couldn't believe we won it! Craig collected the award on the stage from the host of the evening. Once on the stage all of the other regions were called out and joined Craig on the stage. They then announced the overall winner for Wedding Planner of the Year, which sadly wasn't us.


A great evening was had by all and we cant wait for the next awards!....
