The Business of Wedding Planning

Do you want to launch a profitable and successful wedding planning business? If so I would love to support you on your new career path through our flagship course “The Business of Wedding Planning“, because we are all about choice we can offer this both in person and online. We are all different and the way we learn is different, so you need to choose the best path for you.

I strongly believe having a passion for wedding planning is not enough, you must have a thorough understanding of what its like to run a business. All too often I see planners launch with no concept of who their clients are, how to market to them or what to charge. It upsets me so much as they are not giving themselves the best start possible. Invariably they close their business down whereas I think, if only they knew the business side of wedding planning first, would their story be different?

I only run 2 in person workshops a year and the next one is the end of February 2020, I have a maximum of 10 students so if you want to learn from me in person I do urge you to book ASAP so your place is confirmed. My online version is available at any time, it is the same course except includes audio tuition from me not live.

Why Me?

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 students through the UKAWP wedding planner courses.
