Norwood Park Wedding: Maebellyne & Chris

A Mad Men inspired wedding in an English country house

Mad Men Inspired Wedding at Norwood Park

Chris and Maebellyne booked our full wedding planning service for their wedding and chose to style the day with a Mad Men theme and incorporated elements of Filipino tradition into their ceremony.

Living in Zurich they needed help with planning their UK wedding - everything from finding their wedding venue, sourcing quality wedding suppliers, identifying guest accommodation options, making rehearsal dinner reservations, providing wedding day guest survival kits and organising a last minute clay pigeon shoot for the groom and his team on the morning of the wedding!


"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.

As much as we’d love to claim we have nerves of steel, we in fact have Val and Anna to thank for everything! Val provided us with her Full Wedding Planning service which meant she helped us every step of the way from choosing a location, finding fantastic suppliers to liaising with the local Register offices and then 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!"
