Founded by experienced events planner Samantha Bottomley, The Best Events Co. has been creating stunning events since 2009.


Over that time, we have built up an unparalleled black book of contacts who will work tirelessly to make your event perfect in every way. From destination weddings in France to luxury retreats, we have experience planning a wide variety of events. Every event we plan is completely bespoke, we do not offer any packages of any type because we believe each event should be as unique as each of our clients. We work hard to make not only The Best Events, but also to make having an unforgettable event affordable.
