award winning wedding planner

Hi, I’m Val,
Welcome to Benessamy Wedding and Event Planning!

Having originally qualified as a solicitor and spending many years working in corporate affairs (which included organising corporate events, ministerial and royal visits), I decided to use my event planning experience and organisational skills to do something I adore. Having trained with the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners (UKAWP), I launched Benessamy in 2011, was appointed as a Regional Ambassador for the UKAWP and am now an Elite Member.

With over 15 years experience of planning events, I enjoy planning luxurious fun filled celebrations
for clients who want to feel totally looked after. To say that I absolutely love what I do would be a huge understatement! The most important thing for me is that you feel special and can see that going the extra mile is the way we do business here at Benessamy.

"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
