WPE Partner Focus

Last week saw the return of the Wedding Planning Excellence seminar (WPE 2015) for the 5th time.  Held over 2 days at Millbridge Court in Surrey, WPE 2015 gave wedding planners the opportunity to learn from a variety of inspirational speakers and network with like-minded planners.

The seminar proved to be a huge success and was made possible by the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners’ (UKAWP) organising committee, guest and Alliance speakers, and a team of WPE partners who were instrumental to the running and aesthetics of these two days. Over the next week or so we will show you more images and video of our wonderful speakers and our partners’ work, but for now just a sneak peek….


This year’s WPE partners included Millbridge Court and Kalm Kitchen, Hannah Duffy Photography, Adrian Stone from The Dreamcatchers, Jay Archer Floral Design, Ananya Cards, Stressfreehire, Loseley Park and UKAWP supplier member Caper & Berry.


Millbridge Court (see tablescape above) provided the perfect setting and the in-house team, headed up by Laura Harvey, certainly pulled out all the stops alongside Kalm Kitchen whose exquisite menus, creative displays and friendly service made the seminar truly exceptional.


Hannah Duffy, an experienced wedding and event photographer based in Cambridge, joined us for both Friday and Saturday’s programmes, capturing all of the action including our networking dinners.

On Day 2, Adrian Stone from The Dreamcatchers was on hand to film the highlights of the day including our stellar line-up of speakers and dinner at Loseley Park.

WPE1 We’ll be featuring the beautiful imagery from Hannah and film from Adrian shortly but in the meantime head on over to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook where you’ll be able to see some sneak peeks under the hashtag #WPE2015.

We’re absolutely thrilled that multi-award-winning florist Jay Archer Floral Design provided all of the beautiful blooms and sumptuous arrangements which perfectly complemented and enhanced our vision for the seminar.

WPE5Behind the scenes, wedding and event stationer Ananya Cards designed our beautifully bespoke stationery including programmes, name badges and menus, and Stressfreehire provided additional décor and furniture.

Finally, a special thanks to Loseley Park and UKAWP supplier member Caper & Berry who hosted a sumptuous evening of canapés, champagne and gastronomic perfection at the end of Day 2 (see above).  The high quality of service from the team at Caper & Berry ensured that the end of WPE 2015 was an evening to remember!

We look forward to sharing more with you soon, including details for the next WPE!
