Wedding Planner Training in April

We just want to remind you that there is only 1 more courses left this Spring so if you want to train to become a wedding planner, and start getting customers in 2014, then we advise you book quickly. The courses will be starting again from September, dates to be released by end of May.


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. Each tutor has 8-10 years experience enabling them to bring real life scenarios to the classroom and highlight teachings face to face.

In our courses we encourage interaction with our students, we ask probing questions to see what the wedding planning market is like in their area. By discussing price strategies openly we help you create a formula to ensure our business is run profitably. We could list the benefits of classroom teaching but instead have a read of this blog post by Dan Tobin a business coach in the U.S.

Bigger & Better

We believe it is our responsibility to give you the latest information relating to the wedding planning industry which is why the course content was updated in 2013 AND in 2014 to make it even better for future students.

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 importance of branding for a small business and how you need to think about this in everything you do. We even go through formulas to use within your business to make sure you aim for profit in every booking you take. 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.

Why did you train with us?

Don’t underestimate how lonely running your own business is.  The UKAWP courses give you a ready made network of people to call upon on those days when everything seems to be going wrong, or people to share the joys with when you sign up lots of clients! Nikki from I Do Designer Weddings

The fact that it was face to face was the main reason i chose the UKAWP course over others.  Also the fact that I would get to spend the entire weekend with a ‘real life’ planner!  I felt an intense course from someone actually doing the job would be much more beneficial that a course that ran over several weeks/months with a tutor that I might never actually meet.

The UKAWP is a fantastic support network and provides me with the opportunity to network with like minded individuals and meet new industry suppliers as well as the opportunity to attend training courses and specialised events to ensure that I keep abreast of the latest industry trends.
