For Couples

Since our launch in 2004, we’ve consistently provided a trusted reference point for couples getting married. We understand the importance of selecting the right service providers for your wedding, which is why we accept only talented and ethical professionals for membership.

Need help identifying a reliable wedding planner or supplier? Save time and gain confidence by consulting our directory.

All UKAWP members have proven their dedication to the wedding industry before being accepted and each is committed to continuing their training wherever possible to become the best they can possibly be. Please be assured all members have met our entry criteria and must comply with our code of business practice before being accepted into the UKAWP.

UKAWP Directory

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. In the planning stages ahead, trustworthy guidance and help is vital and you are one step closer to these with our directory. Rather than an unscreened listing of advertisers, ours is based on the highest standards of excellence and professionalism, with members earning inclusion instead of simply paying for it.

UKAWP membership levels are based on a points system*, making it easy to assess each member’s experience at a glance. Members progress from associate member through levels one, two and three, based on their experience and proven continued education in the wedding planning industry. Besides our two directors, supreme members hold the most senior level.

Choose your planner with confidence, knowing members at all levels have been vetted via our rigorous application process, have up-to-date public liability insurance and adhere to the UKAWP Code of Business Practice.

What do the designations mean?

Associate members have completed a UKAWP or UKAWP-approved course in wedding planning.

Members at all three points-based levels have provided at least three references and have been trading for a minimum of twelve months.

Supreme members have been UKAWP members for at least two years and have achieved an outstanding level of wedding planning experience and education.

Destination members plan weddings outside the UK, have provided three verified references, proof of public liability insurance, and have been trading for at least twelve months.

Wedding supplier partners are, in many cases, handpicked by our wedding planner members for being exceptional to work with. They have provided three verified references, proof of public liability insurance, and have been trading for at least twelve months.
