Group Training

The UKAWP has successfully trained wedding planners for over ten years and we’re thrilled to have inspired so many fabulous professionals in that time.

We run classroom-based courses to enable students to interact not only with their experienced tutors but also their fellow students. Each tutor has approximately fourteen years of experience as a full-time wedding planner, enabling them to bring real-life scenarios to the training. We pride ourselves on our honesty and immense enthusiasm at wanting you to succeed, and we update courses regularly.
