The Leading Industry Body for the UK Wedding Planning Market

One of the main reasons for the existence of the UKAWP is to act as a reliable reference point for you, the bride. If you are looking for a professional wedding planner, this is the place for you...

We believe the most successful way to learn a new skill is by interacting with likeminded individuals which is why we only run classroom based training. Held at locations throughout the UK there should be a date and location convenient for you...

The main benefit in joining is becoming part of a UK Alliance that is passionate about the industry and that works hard to promote the benefits of hiring a planner for today’s stylish weddings...


The UK Alliance of Wedding Planners was founded for one purpose: to promote professionalism in wedding planning. This is done through membership, mentoring, training courses and specialised events.

A wedding is the most personal and important event in a couple’s life and those involved have a duty to act with integrity and honesty.

All members of the UKAWP are vetted through our strict entrance requirements and abide by our code of business practice and, although every member is different in the way they operate, all conduct their business in a professional manner.

The UKAWP understands that the wedding planning industry is very popular and that there is a high demand for information and training. As a result, we have designed courses for those wishing to embark on this exciting and demanding career. To find out more go to our training page or email

Whether you are a bride, planner, wedding supplier or journalist, we are sure you will find this site very useful and informative.
