Promoting Professionalism,
Ethics & Excellence

As the leading industry body for the UK wedding industry, we are your trusted resource for accessing the best wedding planners and suppliers for your wedding.

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.

Values/ What We Stand For

We are passionate about promoting those within the wedding industry who hold the same values as the UKAWP.

Professionalism - We conduct our business with professionalism at all times, and expect nothing less from our members.

Community - We believe that there is room within the industry for everyone to thrive, as such we promote community over competition because together we are stronger.

Diversity - We believe that the wedding industry should reflect the diverse world that we live in and that suppliers should embrace these differences within their business. By being actively inclusive of all the couples they serve.

Honesty - – This is the backbone of our business and we expect nothing less of our members in every area of their business.

Integrity - – We believe that all businesses within the wedding industry should consistently hold themselves to a high moral standard and consistently operate in accordance with their values.

Respect- We believe in the principle of treating couples and businesses with the utmost respect and kindness at all times.

Mission Statement

It is our mission to promote professionalism, diversity and ethics within the UK wedding industry. We do this by empowering business owners to hold a high standard of excellence in the services they offer through membership and training. We provide a benchmark of credible and trusted suppliers for couples to use on their wedding day.

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.
