Julie and Grant booked our Wedding Day Management Service with some additional Wedding Assistance for their August 2016 wedding. Living and working in Dubai, they were looking for help with finalising their wedding plans as well as someone to oversee and manage things on the day.


"We were recommended Val at Benessamy by one of our friends to assist us with our wedding planning as we were looking for someone who was really experienced as we live overseas in Dubai and might need that little bit of extra help with a few things.

We were so glad we took that recommendation, as Val and her lovely daughter Jess who was helping out on her break from Uni were both absolutely fabulous!

Right from our initial meeting Val was great and in constant contact over our year of planning. Val was extremely thorough and in the schedule for our wedding we felt really happy and secure that she had everything covered. She contacted all of our suppliers and worked with our venue Colwick hall ensuring that everything was in place for our special day.

On the morning of the wedding we could really relax and look forward to the day as everything was being dealt with which took away all of our nerves. Val and Jess were constantly updating us both on the deliveries and vendors etc. Our friends and family commented how lovely Val was and she blended in almost as a guest chatting with them and making sure everything was just great. She also worked so well almost as part of a team with our photographer, videographer, harpist and band making sure they had all they needed too.

When we saw the setup for our wedding breakfast it really blew us away how Val had worked in such a short space of time with the venue to make all our visions a reality with no detail spared. When we did have a little (well rather big glitch with our 7 tier wedding cake being delivered in Pink & Ivory rather than Silver & Ivory) it was Val who calmed us down and sorted things out with the cake makers.

We would recommend Val and her team at Benessamy without hesitation. We had a truly magical wedding day and we just couldn’t imagine the day being so amazing without her".
