Last week I attended the annual Wedding Planning Excellence seminar organised by UKAWP.  This fabulous event is organised by the only body within the UK that actively promotes professionalism in wedding planning.
Over the two days there are several guests speakers on everything from understanding marquees, to designing cocktails, plus of course information on all important business skills that relate to running your own wedding planning business.
It was great to catch up with my fellow planners, some of whom have been in business many years and run exceptionally sucessful businesses and those planners who are just starting out.
