Wedding Venue

Join As A Wedding Venue

The UKAWP is not just for wedding planners. New for 2019 is our wedding venue membership, showcasing those venues that provide outstanding services.

Membership is open to wedding venues 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 venue 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.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING

"Becoming a member of the UKAWP was one of the best decisions I made as a wedding planner. I've gained so much from being associated with such a great group of professional wedding planners. Bernadette and Sandy are so lovely and I cannot recommend membership more to anyone who is serious about building their profile in this business."

DOMINIQUE DOUGLAS - STYLISH EVENTS

"I have been a member of the UKAWP for three years now, and I can’t imagine not being one. I love the support I receive from Sandy & Bernadette and from my UKAWP colleagues. Being a member of an association that has such strict entry requirements gives me more credibility, and gives my clients peace of mind."

ELISABETTA WHITE - INTIMATELY INSPIRED EVENTS

"Being part of the UKAWP is an honour. We love sharing in such a beautiful community. What attracted us in the first place is that everyone is screened before being accepted. Insurance documents, referrals from clients - it’s not just a money making scheme. This ensures that everyone who is a member is of the highest standards. We have grown our network, making great friends within the industry. We get so much support for our business across social media too. It clearly shows how much Bernadette genuinely cares about the members and the reputation of the UKAWP."
