Why trust Bernadette Chapman, head of the UKAWP?

UKAWP Director

It can be hard to give your trust to someone you’ve never met. So why should you trust me as the head of the UKAWP? Why is it members frequently mention me in their testimonials? What makes me, well me? I married my husband nearly 20 years ago, we live in Essex with our 3 children and our dog Freddy. I have been serving the wedding industry since 2002 (as a planner) and 2004 (through the UKAWP).

My values, beliefs and personality

➡️  I’m introverted but a go getter, leader not follower
➡️  Have trained in excess of 650 wedding planners
➡️  18 years in the wedding industry
➡️  I have adapted and improved my businesses over the years, I never stay complacent
➡️  Unique and original, I never follow the crowd, I’ve been first with new concepts many times
➡️  I believe in facing your fear, and I do push my members
➡️  I believe in following your gut
➡️  I believe in tenacity, never ever give up on your dreams. Just rethink how to make them happen
➡️  Complete integrity and honesty – this isn’t a buzz word its the truth

➡️ And finally I will be your biggest cheerleader. You are not a statistic to me. I want you SUCCEED. In fact I demand you succeed 🥰

Just a few words of love from members

If you would like me as your personal cheerleader then you only have a few days to join the UKAWP membership. I close the doors on the 22nd June and it will be months before I reopen them. Isn’t it time you can and joined us?
