Sometimes the directors of the UKAWP will be sent an unprompted email from a member, retelling an encounter of why membership works for them. Below is one such email from Elisabetta, Linen and Silk Weddings
Becoming a UKAWP Associate Member is the best decision I’ve made since I’ve started my career. The principles and guidance the UKAWP provides not only give brides and grooms peace of mind, but they also allow us to ensure there is consistency in the way we work and the fees we charge. As I talk to potential clients about their experience of hiring a planner, particularly for destination weddings, I realise how confusing it must be for them to pick the right one when quotes and approaches to the job are so incredibly different. The reputation of the UKAWP as the one association that strives to promote professionalism in the industry, means that couples who’ve found me via the their directory know without a shadow of a doubt that I will look out for their own interests. That alone is often the reason why they would book my services. As far as I’m concerned, that’s a huge bonus of being a member I want to continue to enjoy, not to mention the behind the scenes work the UKAWP continues to do to promote our values and services in the industry. It’s a win win all around!
