Save the Date(s) Events 2013 Overview – 3rd and 4th Quarter

Whilst everyone is in the midst of the summer’s weddings, its easy to lose sight of life after September. We try our hardest at UKAWP to keep planning for the autumn and beyond. We thought it might be useful to let you know of the events we have coming up over the next few months. Where dates are not confirmed, these will be available soon!

Marquee Workshop – 18th September

New for this year has been our marquee reception workshops, due to demand we are heading to Cheshire again on Wednesday 18th September. Held at the stunning Nunsmere Hotel we will yet again be able to walk around their marquee. The workshop will run from 12pm – 4pm and tickets cost £100 members and £150 non members

Marquee lit up

Further information and link to the booking form will be available via our events page by the middle of August

“I feel I know more about the complex nature of marquee weddings, what to expect, what to look out for, etc. I know it’s a topic that we could have spent all day on but it has provided me with a good knowledge baseline. Was also good to hear from James in terms of the range of more imaginative lighting options.” Val, Benessamy Events

“It was extremely informative, interesting and useful.” Liz Reed, Elizabeth Jane Events

“I feel more confident and have the tools and information available to put on a Marquee wedding.” Lisa Hoyte, Weddings by Lisa Lee

Mix and Mingle – various dates

We’ve held an annual social event in the autumn every year since 2007 and this year is no exception. It’s our one event of the calendar which is pure social; think of it as an end of season celebration. It’s a chance to compare notes, talk through trends, tips and support each other over a glass of wine or two. All events will be held on a weekday evening and tickets will be on sale very soon, keep an eye out on our events page and right here on our blog for detailed information on each event.

Mix and Mingle

The events are open to established and new planners as well as recent students of UKAWP and NEW for 2013 we are opening the doors to wedding industry suppliers. Tickets are priced at £10 members and £20 non members
