The Business of Wedding Planning

Launch A Profitable And Successful Wedding Planning Business

6 Week Intensive Virtual Group Training Programme - commences September

This is our flagship course, hundreds of wedding planners have successfully launched their businesses following enrolling on previous versions of this course. My approach to teaching is honest and down to earth, often bringing real-life scenarios to the training. I know the winning formula for success and happily pass this knowledge onto my students . If you only ever do one course as a wedding planner, THIS is the one to do. My success rate is high and together we can create an amazing business for you filled with ideal clients.

And don't forget once you launch you are eligible to join the UKAWP as an "Associate Wedding Planner"

Due to coronavirus I am not sure when my in person courses will be. So I decided to create a virtual group training opportunity for you instead. You will benefit from the power of learning as a group, but within a virtual setting.
