Combining efficiency and professionalism with creative flair, our signature service has been designed to ensure you have the wedding day of your dreams.
From picking the perfect venue to sourcing the very best suppliers, we'll remove every last bit of stress from the wedding planning process, handling negotiations, confirming bookings and co-ordinating every aspect of your day.
Throughout the planning process, we'll keep you up-to-speed with regular communication and a bespoke wedding timeline. Not only will you be briefed about what we're working on and when, you'll know about any big decisions you need to make well in advance.
Along with outstanding organisational skills, we'll contribute creativity, inspiration and a wealth of ideas to help with the overall styling and design of your wedding day.
Working closely with you to personalise your celebration as much as possible, we'll use your passions, hobbies and tastes to inform the ideas we put forward, allowing you to create a wedding that perfectly reflects who you are and the things you love.
On the day itself, we'll oversee, manage and co-ordinate every aspect of your wedding, leaving you free to relax, have fun and enjoy yourselves!
Our fee for the full design, planning and management of your wedding day is quoted following a complimentary consultation. As a guide, this is usually 12-15% of your total budget, depending on the complexity of the plans. Our minimum fee is £4500.
Do you dream of starting married life somewhere a little more exotic than the UK?
'On the morning of the wedding, Chris and his friends went out clay pigeon shooting. I, on the other hand, went for a leisurely run around Norwood Park. Several of our friends, along with the hair stylist and make-up artist, commented that they’d never seen anyone so completely calm before getting married. Val provided us with her Full Wedding Planning Service which meant she helped us every step of the way, from choosing a location and finding fantastic suppliers to liaising with the local Registry Office and pulling all the details together on the big day. We were so calm because we knew the team had everything under control and that things would just run smoothly.
Planning a wedding can be hard enough at times, but when you’re doing it from hundreds of miles away I’d imagine it adds a whole other level of stress. Thankfully we have no clue what that other level of stress feels like because we had Val. She kept us on track, offered support when needed and gave us ideas we never would have come up with on our own. The day itself could not have gone any better. Our guests still talk about the wedding and how much fun they had.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Val, so if you’re thinking about hiring Benessamy...do it!' - Mae and Chris
