Founded in 2011, Benessamy is a multi-award winning wedding and party planning company based in the UK. Led by our CEO and Chief Planner Val Mattinson, we plan stylish weddings and parties across the UK and destination weddings in the Caribbean for clients who want to feel completely looked after.
We plan events for clients all across the UK and destination weddings in The Caribbean. We're known for our knowledge and experience, attention to detail and a passion for what we do. Each wedding or event is planned with a high level of care and attention so we limit the number of weddings and events we work on each year to make sure you receive a focused and personal service.
Wherever you are on your wedding planning journey, we have a service to suit your needs, reducing stress and ultimately making your life easier. Our complimentary consultation will help you refine your ideas, identify your priorities and focus on the overall look and feel of your celebration. Based on this, we can provide full wedding planning support or a few hours of assistance to help bring your vision to life.
If organising everything yourself has become a little overwhelming or you're simply running out of time, we can step in during the final few weeks to tie-up loose ends and make sure everything runs smoothly – leaving you to relax and enjoy your wedding day.
When you have a demanding job or hectic lifestyle, the idea of spending every spare moment meeting potential suppliers and visiting venues may not be appealing or practical, especially if you're planning your wedding from overseas. We can assist with initial negotiations and the co-ordination of your wedding venue and all your suppliers. With an array of incredible contacts in the wedding industry, we can also help you assemble the best supplier team.
We want our clients to feel special and we believe going the extra mile is the only way to do business. Here's what you can expect when you hire Benessamy Wedding and Event Planning to help you with your planning:

We are also an Elite Member of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners (UKAWP), the leading industry body for the UK wedding industry.

"Val is a wedding co-ordinator extraordinaire! There is a no way our wedding would have gone as smoothly as it did without her help. Having her support leading up to, and on the big day was so valuable. She kept us calm and relaxed and knowing that she had the whole thing in hand allowed us to really enjoy the day and not worry about any details that might go wrong. Val, is a lovely lady, she's constantly positive and calm. We thoroughly recommend her. Thank you Val!" - Ami & Gavin
"There's so much we can, will and should say about Val, but the short answer is that she's an absolute freakin' SUPERSTAR! We didn't initially even consider needing any kind of event planner for our wedding, but it soon became clear that the logistics of the venue we'd picked demanded some assistance.
There really aren't any words for how much Val aided us, from taking names and contact details for literally every supplier we had, coordinating their arrival times and itineraries and being the point of contact on the day should any issues arrive. Val did it all, and made our wedding run smoother than it had any right to do given the scale and our lack of foresight.
On the day she was tireless, keeping all the music playing, keeping everyone in the right place at the right time, and I'm sure 1000 other things we didn't even notice her doing to ensure our day was utterly perfect, we came downstairs the morning after the wedding expecting to find a bombsite, only to find that Val had already been around at the end of the wedding tidying up and making our life so much simpler.
Val....Thank you so much for everything you did." - Chris & Veronica
