Group Training

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. Our courses are very business focussed and highly practical, in essence we teach you what is important in order to succeed as a planner in today’s competitive market. We are registered by the UK Government's Register of Learning Providers (UKRLP).

All tutors are full time wedding planners so can teach you honestly about the industry, giving tips on what works and what doesn’t. We run the courses spring and autumn and current dates can be seen below. Due to the limited number of courses we run dates tend to sell out fast so ensure you register early to confirm your place on the course.

To understand more about the courses we run please download our brochure. To register complete our booking form here which will then take you to the online payment page.

How should I compare your course to others?

We appreciate you may wish to compare courses before choosing the right one for you. A few things you should ask when making enquiries:


1. Who wrote the course and is it a US or UK text?
2. Who conducts the training and what is their background/experience?
3. Can you speak with previous students for feedback and review their websites?
4. Do they have other services to support you after the course has finished?

Still unsure if this is the right course for you? Contact Bernadette who can give you details of our many successful past students to clarify any grey areas.
