UK Alliance of Wedding Planners


Coffee with the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners

A break away from editing wedding photographs this morning. A chance to network with other wedding professionals, courtesy of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners.

The networking event was organised by the Regional Ambassador for the South West region of the UKAWP, Melanie Kiani. I know Melanie very well as she runs Bellissimo Weddings and also Beach Weddings Bournemouth. The event was held at Camden Bar in Bournemouth and was well attended by representatives of various professions associated with the wedding industry. Wedding planning, floristry, music, photography, cakes and make-up. Unfortunately the coffee machine was being temperamental, but the tea was good (as you can judge from the number of tea-pots on the table!). It was a great chance to catch up with some old friends (and make some new ones as well), chatting about weddings and having fun.

Being a wedding photographer can be a really lonely business, spending days locked away in a darkened room editing photographs. That’s why events like this are key for helping us to remain sane! Looking forward to the next one Melanie 🙂

 The UK Alliance of Wedding Planners was founded for one purpose: to promote professionalism in wedding planning. The company believes that by investing in training and development and helping to grow the wedding planning industry in a professional manner we can together provide an outstanding and unparalleled service for today’s brides and grooms.
