Wedding Planning - Step by Step

Do you want to learn how to plan your clients weddings with ease and confidence?

8 Week Intensive Virtual Group Training Programme.

This course is increasingly popular with students as it literally teaches you how to plan a wedding from the moment you have been hired.

Students tell us their course notes remain their bible for years to come.

If you have recently launched as a wedding planner, or indeed wish to launch in the near future, you may find yourself unsure of where to find that all so important key information for your clients wedding. Just where do you find that dream venue, how can you trust the suppliers you hire?

Through this virtual training programme you will benefit from learning in a group environment but with the benefits of learning at home. You learn at your leisure but then jump on group zoom calls once a week, with Bernadette to ask questions straight away with no delay. You will receive concise course notes and a private community to interact with your fellow students.
