At the UK Academy of Wedding and Event Planning our passion is weddings and events but our focus is education. We help you to have the career you’ve been dreaming about as a wedding planner, event manager, floral designer, event stylist, venue coordinator or wedding designer.
We’ve taken wedding and event education to a new level and re-imagined it making it fun, informative, flexible and above all ‘real’. This is what makes us the international leaders in the field of wedding and event industry training. We are part of a global group of 7 regional campuses and our 3,000+ graduates are our greatest achievement.
We practice what we preach and all our tutors are working industry professionals who have been where you are now. We regularly produce new course content and are lucky enough to have our own film studio jam packed full of design and décor elements from chairs and tables to glassware and linen.
We are constantly researching to make sure the tutorials and ‘how to’ videos you’re watching teach you how to create, design and produce using the latest trends and ideas we are seeing out in the industry.
The Academy courses are delivered online through practical tutorials, “how to” videos, and audio podcasts, all backed up with written PDF handouts and plenty of templates, checklists and cheat sheets.
One of the big benefits to the Academy is that you receive lifetime access to your course allowing you to refer to the materials at any time and also receive the latest industry updates.
The course material itself is updated throughout the year as the latest trends develop and new tools and ideas emerge. We also work with an Advisory Board of Industry Experts who all contribute to the content within the courses to ensure you are receiving the most relevant and up to date education possible.
Our most exciting addition to the 2018/19 Board is the amazingly talented wedding superstar, David Tutera.
And of course there are industry partnerships which deliver many benefits to students and graduates, such as our partnership with Aisle Planner, allowing our students to work with industry software as part of the course assignments.
Whilst our courses prepare students for employment, many of our students choose the Academy for the in-depth business training that’s relevant to working in weddings and events. This training is included within all our Diploma courses.
Our Academy Mentors are all wedding business owners and are there to support and guide you through your course and help you to launch a successful business.
