Now an associate member with the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you'll already know about the recent development for Heart Shaped Weddings.

(Drum roll please)

Heart Shaped Weddings has recently become an Associate Member of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners (UKAWP).

Wedding planning and coordination is, scarily, a completely unregulated industry in the UK. The UKAWP was founded to promote professionalism in the wedding planning industry.

Having trained with the Alliance last year, I was beyond excited when news came through that I had become an Associate member! Even right at the start of my Heart Shaped journey, before I had attended any courses, before Heart Shaped Weddings even had a name or had been registered as a business, the one thing I was 100% certain of was that I wanted to be part of this amazing group of people. What I really love and find truly inspirational is that UKAWP wedding planners work together, sharing ideas and provide support to each other, attending events that the UKAWP host so that we can continually learn and become better more awesome planers and coordinators.

One of the biggest benefits to brides and grooms of Heart Shaped Weddings being a member of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners is that I am bound to their code of business.

I agree to:

  • Respond to all enquiries within 48 hours
  • Respect client confidentiality
  • Disclose any suppliers I have a vested interest in
  • Pass discounts and/or commission onto clients
  • Ensure my Public Liability insurance is up to date
  • Never give client details to any third party not involved with the wedding
  • Respect copyright from fellow wedding professionals
  • Represent each client fairly and honestly
  • Use legally sound business contracts with clients

I'm more than chuffed to be a member of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners and thoroughly exciting for what this means for Heart Shaped Weddings now and in the future.
