A short thank you for making our ‘Festival’ themed party a very special occasion for us and a memorable event for our friends and family. Many people have said “best party ever” or similar accolades! A massive thanks to Caroline for her ideas during the planning, attention to detail on the delivery during the months of preparation and endless energy over the weekend – oh and patience with all of us including last minute changes! The party was amazing and seamless. 50th Birthday Party, Teddington CC, July 2017
5 Star Service! Penny Hughes, Private Party, Teddington, February 2107
Caroline helped organise my husband’s 50th birthday party and it was nothing short of fantastic. The coordination was seamless and all of the recommended suppliers were excellent – from the food, to the professional barmen, to the marquees, to the DJ, to the photographer – all were superb. A huge thank you for such an amazing job – couldn’t have done it without you! Sarah Matthew, Private Birthday Party, Teddington, October 2016
Caroline helped us plan and organise our wedding in London. Hiring Caroline as our Wedding Coordinator was one of the best decisions we made when planning our Wedding. She gave us very useful ideas and suggestions and took meticulous care of every detail from the beginning to the end. Caroline is very easy to talk to and was a great support to us. She liaised with all the suppliers to ensure that everything went smoothly on the day. Caroline always found sensible solutions to any problems we were facing and we cannot thank her enough for all her hard work leading up to and on the wedding day itself. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to plan their Wedding. Priyanka & Amar, Wedding, St James Court Hotel, London, July 2016
Our grateful thanks to Caroline for helping us to organise the most wonderful day for my daughter and son-in-law’s recent wedding at Northbrook Park. Caroline joined us in the organisation a few months out, checking everything we had done to date and, using her considerable experience and expertise, liaised with all our suppliers in the run-up to the big day. Most importantly, she ensured that everything ran smoothly on the day itself. It was so reassuring to know that she was making sure we didn’t forget anything, and that she was helping our florists, caterers and other suppliers put everything together on the day to ensure that my daughter’s stylish vision for her wedding was realised. Caroline was brilliant to work with and knowing that she was there on the day helped us relax and really enjoy it all! Gerry McCarthy – Clare & Richard Springham’s Wedding, Northbrook Park, Farnham, August 2016
Put simply, Caroline is amazing and a must have for your event. She helped me organised our 40th birthday party. She ensures well ahead of time every aspect is considered and organised to a very high standard helping me realise a very precise vision. Her team and suppliers are brilliant. On the day, she went above and beyond (and up some very high ladders to hang bunting). Her preparation and management meant that all ran smoothly and seamlessly leaving me to relax and have a great time with my guests. Nichola Plower, Private Party, Teddington, July 2016
Caroline planned our Wedding in Bushy Park. She was with us every step of the way; from pulling together our vision; recommending and arranging suppliers; making sure we didn’t forget anything on the way; being there in the days immediately before to put the whole reception together; on the day itself ensuring it ran without a hitch and finally being there again the day after to make sure it was all finished up so that we could enjoy our first day as a married couple.
Caroline worked tirelessly to make sure the day was exactly as we wanted – and we didn’t give her the easiest brief, but it was truly incredible. Exactly as we had envisioned and perfect in every way. She was fantastic to work with and instilled complete confidence in us meaning we could relax and have the very best day possible.
We can’t thank her enough – we couldn’t have done it without her and we really can’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you again Caroline, you are a star!!!! Tom & Rachael Collett, Wedding, Teddington RFC, Bushy Park, August 2016
Recently we hired an old cricket club and a patch of grass as the venue for our Wedding, but had virtually no idea what to do next! We used Caroline at Do Events as a Wedding Planner, but she in fact played many more roles than that. From initial planning and structuring of the day to sourcing equipment and accessories, Caroline was there every step of the way to prompt us to do things or to provide ideas. Through her extensive list of suppliers she was able to find a way for us to achieve what we wanted and also saved us money due to her relationships.
Around the event itself we could not have come even close to pulling off the event without Caroline who was present on the site before, during and after the marquee was installed, dealing with all of the contractors and ensuring everything went smoothly. She went above and beyond the call of duty negotiating with suppliers on our behalf and was regularly in touch ensuring that we were making decisions and ordering things at the right time. On the day itself Caroline blended into the background but was proactively dealing with issues before they arose. It was great to know that she was there in case something did go wrong and I am sure she could even have done something if we had suffered from a rainstorm or tornado! Steven & Daniella Taylor, Wedding, Teddington CC, Bushy Park, July 2016
Caroline did a fabulous job of creating a really exciting programme for my birthday party then sourcing and coordinating the various suppliers and people. She dressed our home fabulously and planned and coordianatd everything meticulously. I can thoroughly recommend her. Ben Denton, 50th Birthday Party, Private Residence, Putney, November 2015
Caroline organised a Black Tie dinner and dance for 160 guests to raise some much needed money for Pancreatic Cancer UK. She helped pull the event together negotiating great rates, discounts and, at times, free services from suppliers. She supported every aspect of the planning, preparation and execution of the event. With her fantastic network of local contacts and suppliers, we got some incredible prizes for the auction which helped raise over £11,000 for the charity.
The success of this event was without doubt down to her incredible attention to detail, meticulous planning as well as fully understanding the bigger picture of what the event was about. From discussing the purpose of the event to spell checking and printing menus, no job was too big or too small for her. I would unreservedly recommend Caroline to anyone who is planning an event, wedding or birthday party. Jonathan Mayne, Fundraising Black Tie Dinner & Dance, The Lensbury, Teddington, November 2015
When planning your Wedding you want it to be a day to remember, no stress and to run smoothly – that is exactly what Caroline achieved. As soon as we meet we knew we were in good hands. Communication was regular, problems dealt with professionally and quickly, Caroline went above and beyond to ensure our day ran smoothly and with last minute hiccups always had a solution taking any stress out of the equation, she did things we didn’t even ask just because she knew it needed doing, going above and beyond her job description, with a can do attitude Caroline makes everything achievable and work. She took our vision and made it come true. On the day we were not made aware of problems as Caroline took control, she fitted in with guests and became a friend to all who spoke to her, friendly, approachable, professional, no words are enough to express our gratitude, we would highly recommend Caroline. Claire & Melissa Gayle, Wedding, The Landmark Arts Centre, Teddington, August 2015
Yet again, Caroline and Do Events were superb throughout and made it all such a pleasure on the day. Many members praised the warm professionalism of the staff, the delicious food and the atmosphere. We have now arranged numerous events through Do Events and the results have been tremendous on every occasion. Sunny Judge, Club Manager, The Lensbury, Teddington
When tasked with pulling together a team building event for 20 people, I instantly turned to Caroline for inspiration. Within a couple of days there were 5 attractive options tabled. Following much deliberation, we agreed that a treasure hunt in the majestic setting of Kew Gardens would be the best idea for the Anglo American team. The day went off without a hitch and the team loved every minute of it. One key point to note is Carolines attention to detail of the event but also the (not so) little things. The maps she sent to the attendees documenting where to go upon arrival at Kew, arranging free car parking at the event center, the refreshing drinks and cake we had upon completing the treasure hunt and the fantastic gastro pub she booked for a dinner that was a short walk from the event. I would recommend Caroline to anyone who is organising a corporate team building event, no matter how big or small. Jonathan, GSK, Team Building Event at Kew Gardens, February 2015
Caroline at Do Events made our Wedding Day run so smoothly and everyone commented on how well the whole day went. Apparently there were some issues during the day, but Caroline sorted them so discreetly & professionally that not even I knew about them until the next day! Not only was Caroline there for the whole day, she also helped me in the days, weeks & months running up to the Wedding, whether it was trailing through suppliers, trying to balance budget with quality or reassuring me that I’d made the right choice of entertainment.
When I first started planning the Wedding I didn’t even think about getting a Wedding Planner, it was only by chance that I got talking to Caroline at a Wedding Fayre and something felt right. Now I know why, without Caroline I think I would have had a nervous breakdown! I would recommend Do Events to anyone, Caroline is very good at what she does and she’s a lovely person. Jenna Collins, Wedding, St Barnabas, Bishop’s Stortford, January 2015
You always want your wedding to be your best day ever, and this is exactly what Caroline helped us achieve. From the moment I met her, I had absolute trust and faith in her expertise. She is easy going and always with a can-do attitude. Her attention to detail is second to none, and she has the creativity to see the bigger picture. In our case it was taking an old warehouse with no catering or music facilities and turning it into a fabulous wedding venue to ensure our wedding day was perfect. She always went above and beyond her job responsibilities and I honestly couldn’t have achieved the day we wanted without her. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of creating a special event! Jane Moran, Wedding, One Friendly Place, London SE13, December 2014
With a very limited time frame to organise our Company Christmas Lunch event, Caroline managed to execute the entire event superbly – from suggesting ideas to theme our event, sourcing props and appointing specialist lighting contractors, liaising with other sub-contractors and the events team at the venue. The whole event ran with precision without any glitches. I would highly recommend Caroline! Pragnya Patel, Decléor UK Ltd, Corporate Christmas Party, December 2014
I haven’t a clue how to organise a celebration party, so when someone recommended Caroline, I jumped at the chance. And to say I wasn’t disappointed is an understatement – she, and her organising skills, are terrific. Not only did she organise my special event to perfection, but she even suggested (and decorated) the venue, which couldn’t have been more suited to the occasion. On the day, everything worked seamlessly, Caroline was present throughout, and I couldn’t have been happier. Little wonder, then, that I have much pleasure in wholeheartedly recommending Caroline and Do Events & Weddings Limited. Peter Denton, Civil Partnership Celebration, Teddington, December 2014
Creative, reliable, flexible and thorough: these words only begin to describe the service that you’ll receive from Caroline Smith and Do Events. Whether you want full-service event planning, someone to run the event on the day or any level of service in between, you are in good hands with Caroline, who is a brilliant events designer and manager. With her support and guidance, I held a house party that absolutely exceeded my expectations. If you believe that behind every great party there is great organisation, then look no further than Do Events. Amy Coppola, Private Party, Teddington, November 2014
I wanted to say how much I appreciated all your help before and on the night of the party. You took a lot of weight off my shoulders and, thanks to you, the party ran without a hitch. You are very professional and if we ever plan another party – we would definitely look you up. You were absolutely fantastic and contributed to what was a really special event. Lynda & Gary Stewart, 50th Birthday Party, Private Residence, Kent, October 2014
Thanks to your hard work, good ideas, efficiency and logistical know-how our event was enjoyed by all who attended. I would recommend Caroline and Do Events to anyone organising a party. Having Caroline on board meant that I didn’t have to worry about any of the logistics on the day but more than that she completely got the type of party we were trying to pull of from our first meeting and had a constant stream of ideas and contacts that allowed it to happen with the greatest of ease. We wanted an event that adults and children would enjoy – everyone came away happy. Thanks once again. Claire Brasher, Hugh Brasher’s Birthday Party – ’50Fest’ at Ham House, Richmond, September 2014
A huge ‘thank you’ from everyone at TTSC (Rugby & Cricket) for the fabulous job you have done in preparation for the Grand Opening. You have gone above and beyond! Warren May, Chairman TTCC, Teddington Town Sports Club Grand Opening, September 2014
A hugely enjoyable & successful day, in no small part down to your fantastic organising skills. Gareth Cross, Chairman TTRC, Teddington Town Sports Club Grand Opening, September 2014
Do Events Limited ensured that my 50th birthday party ran like clockwork. Caroline Smith is a highly efficient organiser with a good eye for detail and is completely unflappable under pressure. Caroline is able to pre-empt any hiccups from measuring the fridge to ensure the gateaux will fit to making sure there is enough ice – no stone is left unturned! As a result I had a very memorable and stress-free evening and was able to thoroughly enjoy myself – worth every penny. Amanda Kozlowski, 50th Birthday Party, Kingston Rowing Club, June 2014
I couldn’t recommend Caroline more highly. I felt we did nothing but the nice bits of planning for our ‘big birthday’ celebration last week. Caroline was full of ideas and helpful suggestions but equally importantly she did all the hard work which resulted in a fantastic evening for us and our guests. The chef, the band, the bar, the marquee, the lighting, the staff and the decoration were all organized and delivered superbly.Caroline worked well within our budget, and often went to a lot of extra trouble to get us a better result for less money. She has great contacts, a good sense of humour and an amazing work ethic. I can’t imagine planning an event without her in the future. Rosanagh Lee , Robert Lee’s 70th Birthday Party, Teddington Cricket Club, June 2014
Thank you so much Caroline for organising everything so brilliantly for the wedding last week. We have all agreed that we have never worked with such a fantastically calm and organised event planner!! We really appreciated how you kept us up to date with the nights proceedings etc – our job was a breeze because you made it all as easy as possible for us. You had the event completely under control and running to time despite technical issues such as power outages – we were super impressed and would love to work with you again! ‘MIB Rocks’ Band, Shetal & Matthew’s Indian Wedding, Teddington Cricket Club, April 2014
I don’t know where to start! I could not of lived without Caroline whilst planning our wedding! Caroline was always on the end of the phone or email reassuring me and advising me, and also for a little offload! She dealt with all the suppliers and the venue getting them all organised and always kept me well informed! On the day… WOW! Everything was just perfect! Caroline was there making sure all was in place, helping guests, organising the venue, Queuing music….
I honestly cannot thank you enough for your hard work on my wedding day, you were more than a planner you became a friend to me, anyone who’s lucky enough to have you planning there wedding with them is going to have the perfect day! Louise Tarling, Wedding, Crazy Bear Stadhampton, November 2013
The best decision we made! Caroline was an absolute star and a pleasure to deal with. Very meticulous with fantastic attention to detail she ensured our requirements were carried out to the very last point. We didn’t have to give a moments thought to any nitty gritty detail on the day as she had it covered, exactly what I was after for a control freak like me! Caroline you were absolutely worth your weight in gold. We have both remarked on how fantastic, professional and attentive you were, supreme efficiency! It was such a relief to know that everything was in such capable hands, we even had lots of comments from other guests about what a great job you did!
I have no doubt that we wouldn’t have had such a great day if it had not been for Caroline and would have absolutely zero hesitation in recommending her! Claire & Harry Jackman, Wedding at Aylesbury Rugby Club, July 2013
Caroline helped us through a very busy time in our business. She quickly learned the ropes, came up with creative and well thought-out solutions to problems and got stuck in with delivering them. She’s a very professional person and I’d have no hesitation recommending her. Nick Thompson, Director, Events Services, Dataflow Events
It was such a great decision to ask Caroline to assist with our Wedding planning. She quickly understood what we wanted from our Wedding Day and came up with a range of suggestions which complemented our ideas perfectly. Having Caroline as our Co-ordinator took a huge weight off our minds – a well-connected, experienced and creative Wedding Planner. Emma & Martin Roberts, Wedding March 2013
Thank you to Caroline at Do Events for finding us The Love Handles. They provided a great evening for all! Definitely one of the best bands we have ever hosted at the pub. A well balanced set list of old and new music. We would definitely book them to play again! Jonny, Manager, Kings Head, Teddington
Caroline Smith has many years experience in corporate events management and her knowledge of venues and suppliers is unsurpassed; planning a celebration is hard work and you can save yourself a lot of time and money with Caroline’s help. Joanna Haines, Director, Cake Magic Wimbledon
Caroline has managed the 2012, 2013 and 2014 Playwam Quiz & Auction Nights, plus the Easter Egg Hunt and we have nothing but praise for the way she managed both events. The Quiz & Auction Night was a huge success and raised a record amount of money for the school, which is so important for us going forward. Through lighting and decoration she transformed the school hall, managing the catering and worked with the Quiz Master to run a seemless event. The Easter Egg Hunt was also a huge success, loved by all the children who attended! We have no hesitation in recommending Caroline and Do Events Limited for organising events for both adults and children. Sally Allen, Director, Playwam Pre School, Teddington
We enlisted the team at Do Events to organise King Sturge’s Christmas party for our 400 employees in Central London. They understood immediately what we needed and worked comfortably within our budget, finding a terrific new venue and a great live band. The attention to detail with the additional little extras – coaches from the venue to mainline stations, magicians, bucking bronco, photo booths etc, made the parties incredibly popular. We also asked them to run our annual corporate team building Quiz Nights, which in turn raised money for our company charities. Again these were very well attended and hugely popular. We would definitely recommend using Do Even. Steven James, Head of HR, King Sturge / Jones Lang LaSalle, London
Perton Signs have always enjoyed working with Caroline, over the years we have worked together as a team and produced some outstanding branding and graphics. Her attention to detail and application of the brief has always been exceptional. Andrew Kennedy, Director, Perton Signs
It was a pleasure working with Caroline on the Edinburgh Television Festival. She had a great knack of knowing what would work for her clients and also to the benefit of the event she was managing. She was creative and adaptable to changing client requirements over the time I worked with her and always had the highest standards, working efficiently to deliver a first-class result in terms of impact, style and presentation. As a person she was professional and adaptable, but also great fun to work alongside – a must as far as I’m concerned in a fast-paced media environment. Would I work with her again? Without a doubt! Kirsty Barr, Director MiComms PR, Former Director Marketing & Comms, Discovery Channel
Caroline can take any brief no matter how complicated and deliver a great result. Her key strengths are her energy, resourcefulness, and her tenacity to work to get the result she wants for her clients. I can’t recommend Caroline highly enough. Caroline is one of those people you would definitely want on your team – you just know the job will get done! Ami Nielsen, Former Director of Development, D&AD
