Wedding Planners

What is the UKAWP?

The UK Alliance of Wedding Planners was founded to promote professionalism in wedding planning, evolving to include industry-wide educational and networking opportunities for related businesses. By investing in training and helping to build a professional wedding planning industry, we provide an outstanding and unparalleled service for brides and grooms and valuable links between planners and suppliers. The UKAWP is owned and operated by the two of us, Bernadette Chapman and Sandy Moretta.
Having each run small, successful wedding planning businesses for many years, we’re passionate about the industry and committed to promoting professionalism and sound, honest business practices. As working wedding planners, we know the job and understand its good - and frustrating - sides. This helps us train and coach planners, lead the UKAWP and nurture and support our wonderful members. Sandy & Bernadette
