Wedding industry speaker, expert and trainer

I have been a wedding planner for 16 years now and the owner of the UKAWP for 14 years. So as you can imagine I’ve acuminated rather a lot of knowledge in that time. Not only do I have immense experience in organising weddings I have trained and coached hundreds of wedding planners since 2004. I am passionate about the wedding industry and empowering others to have the business they desire. One way I offer this is through my role as a wedding industry speaker at large events or as a keynote speaker at smaller workshops. I am available to talk both in the UK and abroad.


Karen Tran, Floral Experience 

When I was asked by Jane from Planned 4 Perfection to present at Karen Trans Floral Experience at the Lanesborough 26th March I was delighted to assist. My talk was on the mindset of a luxury wedding client, and how to market yourself for this category of wedding. A few days later I attended the wonderful gala dinner (more to come on this next week).


National Wedding Show

I am regularly asked to present at the London National Wedding Shows which are held at Olympia and the Excel. The topic I normally present on is how to create a robust wedding. My talks are always interactive with me both asking and answering questions from the audience. I was at Olympia in February and on the 15th April I will be at Excel. If attending do come and say hello, or if you would like to schedule a quick meeting at the show drop me an email.

B.Loved Hive

On the 27th April I’m looking forward to presenting for the 2nd year running at the HiveLive. Last year I spoke about running a profitable wedding business, and this year I will talk about my journey and the changes that have evolved in that time. I’ll try and condense the 16 years worth of experience into a short session!

So what is the HiveLive18? In essence it is a 2-day event that brings together insight and actionable advice from leading experts in the wedding industry all under one roof at the B.LOVED Hive in London. It’s tailor made for start-ups, part timers wanting to go full time, young businesses going through a rebrand, and ambitious solopreneurs.


Wedding Industry Workshop

On the 8th May I am a keynote speaker at a wedding workshop hosted by wedding planner Inspired by Susie Evans. Susie is a fantastic wedding planner in Sussex and I had the pleasure of coaching her in 2017. There are just 2 places remaining.


If you would like me to speak at your event please do get in touch. I am comfortable presenting in front of audiences of hundreds as well as more intimate workshops. My presentations can either be with formal training via slides or with me simply presenting. My talks can be for wedding couples or those within the wedding industry.
