UK Wedding Suppliers
Join As A Wedding Supplier
The UKAWP is not just for wedding planners. We offer a range of benefits, a vibrant community and a consistent network of support for professional UK wedding suppliers across the industry.
Membership is open to wedding suppliers who have been in business for a minimum of 12 months and who abide by our Code of Business Practice.
If you’re looking to make connections with like-minded industry peers and planner members, and you’re keen to foster a spirit of community and productive partnership then we’d love to hear from you. Find out more about the variety of benefits and support on offer to our supplier members below.
Rather than an unscreened listing of advertisers, our membership is based on the highest standards of excellence and professionalism, with members earning inclusion instead of simply paying for it.
