At Benessamy, providing a luxury service means going above and beyond to exceed your expectations in every way. I want you to feel special and I believe going the extra mile is what truly sets us apart.

Whether you dream of exchanging vows in a beautiful historic building, beneath the canopy of a luxurious marquee or on the soft, sandy shores of a stunning Caribbean island, I can’t wait to assist and support you every step of the way.

"I so wish I’d known about Benessamy before I got married! Val was the wedding planner for my sister-in-law's amazing wedding this summer. It was a mind blowing brief for 250 people and she handled it all with such finesse, accuracy and calm. The whole day was just incredible, there was nothing left undone, it was perfect and effortless in every way. Even the sudden turn in the weather didn’t throw her, everything was taken care of with a smile and a solution. It was the most amazing day, and it was all down to Val and her team. For anyone considering using Benessamy, don’t even think twice, you’ll never regret it, she throws one hell of a party!"  - Lucie Wilson

As I type, wedding and civil partnership receptions and celebrations are not permitted to take place in the UK. Once lockdown is lifted and weddings can go ahead, the restrictions on numbers will remain in place. Whatever happens in the next few weeks and months, it seems small, intimate weddings will be the norm for the foreseeable future.
