The Leading Industry Body for the UK Wedding Planning Market

  Group Training

If you want to train to become a wedding planner, and start getting bookings in 2016/7, then we’d love to see you on one of our courses. We believe the most successful way to learn a new skill is by interacting with like-minded individuals which is why we run classroom based training. Each tutor has approx. 12 years experience as full time wedding planners enabling them to bring real life scenarios to the classroom and highlight teachings face to face.

We pride ourselves on our honesty and immense enthusiasm at wanting you to succeed and update our course regularly. We want you to enter this vibrant industry with the knowledge necessary to be successful. Our Step by Step course has been reviewed and edited by leading wedding industry experts, lovingly known as #SBScontributors.

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.

  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.
