New Year, New Career in Wedding Planning

Is 2013 the year where you change your career?

Is this the year you start a career in an industry that is passionate and creative?

If so we would love you to consider a career in wedding planning and train with the UKAWP. Our training courses will be starting again from February so if you want to join the 60+ professional planners who are our members , not to mention the hundreds of planners we have trained since 2004, then take a look at our training brochure available to download via our website

We believe the most successful way to learn a new skill is by interacting with like-minded individuals which is why we only run classroom based training. Held in London and Manchester there should be a date and location convenient for you. We are registered by the UK Government’s Register of Learning Providers (UKRLP). We have a brochure which is available to download via our website   .

Business Practicalities

This course is aimed at those wishing to start their own business. Primarily your research and marketing before moving onto the type of services you wish to offer and how to decide what to charge. We take you through the basics of PR and why this is so important for small businesses. One element that is always popular is the mock consultations we undertake with the students, this gives students the chance to understand how important it is to ask the right questions in a consultation. And finally we go through how to produce your proposal. This course was updated in Autumn 2012 to ensure its as current as it can possibly be

9th /10th  February in London  /  6th/7th   April in Manchester

Step by Step

This course literally teaches you how to plan a wedding from the moment you have been hired. We go through how to create a client budget and work out what % of the budget should go on certain areas. We advise how to create payment plans for clients and what to do if you have a client bank account. We show you examples of the different ceremonies in the UK and how etiquette plays a part in today’s weddings, albeit in a modern way. Then its time to discuss suppliers from how to find them to what questions to ask. The final part of the weekend takes you through the day from the ceremony up until the evening entertainment.

23rd/24th March in London  /  11th/12th May in Manchester


We have decided to keep the course price the same as it has been for a few years which is £599.This includes your course notes, CD templates and some books. More information can be found via here
