What is the UKAWP?

The UK Alliance of Wedding Planners was established in 2004 with the main purpose of promoting professionalism within the UK wedding industry. If you are planning your wedding then you have come to the right place, our membership directory has some of the best wedding planners and suppliers not just in the UK but across Europe. Rather than an unscreened listing of advertisers, our membership is based on the highest standards of excellence and professionalism. Visit our couples page to learn more about membership but also links to our directories.

Mission Statement

Promote professionalism, ethics and excellence within the UK wedding industry. We aim to empower business owners so they have the confidence to thrive, we do this through membership and training.

Whether you are a bride, groom, planner, wedding supplier or journalist, we’re here to help.

All UKAWP members are vetted through the strictest of entrance requirements and abide by our code of business practice. Membership is based on the ability to meet our high standards and not simply a ‘pay to be listed’ model. We understand how important each wedding is and believe all involved have a duty to act with honesty and integrity.


"Becoming a member of the UKAWP was one of the best decisions I made as a wedding planner. I've gained so much from being associated with such a great group of professional wedding planners. Bernadette and Sandy are so lovely and I cannot recommend membership more to anyone who is serious about building their profile in this business."


"I have been a member of the UKAWP for three years now, and I can’t imagine not being one. I love the support I receive from Sandy & Bernadette and from my UKAWP colleagues. Being a member of an association that has such strict entry requirements gives me more credibility, and gives my clients peace of mind."


"Being part of the UKAWP is an honour. We love sharing in such a beautiful community. What attracted us in the first place is that everyone is screened before being accepted. Insurance documents, referrals from clients - it’s not just a money making scheme. This ensures that everyone who is a member is of the highest standards. We have grown our network, making great friends within the industry. We get so much support for our business across social media too. It clearly shows how much Bernadette genuinely cares about the members and the reputation of the UKAWP."
