Graduate Experiences

I loved my time studying with the Wedding Academy. The course led me through the stages to help set up my business. It gave me a fab start and most importantly the confidence when it came to starting out and entering the world of weddings. The online global community is invaluable and really lovely to know that if you have any questions, someone is on hand to help and advise. The wedding academy is like a little wedding industry family each supporting each other’s dreams.

FAQS

Is the Diploma in Wedding Planning, Styling and Design the right course for me?

If you are looking to design a career that allows you to make the most of your creativity and your great organisational skills then this is the course for you. This is an entry level course designed for those of you who want to offer clients the full wedding package; from planning and design to styling and on the day coordination. If you have a passion for all things wedding related then this course is the dream course for you!

What are the career options after I graduate?

This course is the ideal springboard for those of you looking to launch your own wedding business offering a variety of planning, design and styling services. Not only will you graduate with the confidence to plan flawless weddings, but you will have also developed a keen design eye and honed your styling skills. This course includes business and marketing units so you will be ready to launch your wedding business like a pro.

When can I start the course?

All our courses are online which gives you the flexibility to learn anywhere and at times that suit you. So you really can fit your course around your lifestyle. Many of our students study whilst having a full time job and/or looking after a family. You have up to 2 years to complete your course although it can be completed in 6 months or less if you have more hours per week to dedicate to study.

How do you teach the practical styling skills?

Our practical courses contain ‘how to’ video demos and tablescape design examples so you can follow along and practice your styling skills at home. You’d be surprised what you can find around your house that can be styled together to create a great table design. Our assignments also require you to put what you learn into practice, creating moodboards, storyboards, colour palettes, layout plans, budgets, client proposals and more.

Do I need to be creative to take the course?

No, creativity isn’t a prerequisite. If you are highly organised and great at planning but you don’t consider yourself a creative person, don’t be put off taking the course. All you need is a passion for all things wedding related and an eye for details, the rest can be developed as you work through your course. And if you are already creative you will love this course as it’s the perfect outlet for all your designs and ideas.

Is there any help I can get with course fees?

Yes! We know that paying for your course when you have other financial commitments can be a strain so we have designed a variety of payment plans to allow you to spread the cost over 4 or 10 monthly instalments. However, if you are able to pay in full you will make the most saving on your course fees.
