I was just Wondering if there are many Uk students that do this course and where you guys are from, Im from Oxfordshire area of the Uk.
Would love to chat and find out what you will be doing with all this information you learn from this course.
I'm Jill from Southampton
I decided to do this course because I just wanted a career change and I was hoping this course will lead me to my perfect job!
How far have you got through the course it's very exciting and lots of information to hold in, I am currently creating my business just eating for my website to be done!
Good luck though you will have a great time finding out what you want to do I have chosen just weddings
I'm a UK student from Scotland!
I'm Melissa from Manchester Just started unit C
I would like to run my own business once i have finished the course.
I am from London, I have just started the course I am on A5, I have been browsing the Wedding Planning forum and thought there was no one from the UK, glad i am not alone, how is everyone finding the course?
I'm Sarah and I've just signed up today. I live on the Beds/Bucks border and I'm really looking forward to starting my course.
I decided to do this course because I used to do event co ordination on a small scale for a company I used to work for, and then I've organised a few events in the past couple of years and I keep getting told I should do it on a more professional basis, so I thought I would do a course and take it from there ...
How is everyone finding the course ...I'm a bit concerned about having no deadline, do you find it hard to submit assignments, I'm a bit worried that, as I don't have any submission deadlines, I will keep hanging on to them and tweaking at them ...any tips ?
Your not to far from me then! I finished last Christmas and I thought the same about deadlines as sometimes I will just push it back to the last minuite but once you get into you I couldn't put it down and I would say don't tweak to much, defiantly check for anything you feel you may have missed out but overall the tutors come back with how you could do better if you miss something out! I had Sharon Dawes she was super helpful and positive which kept me really going!! It took me about 7 months to finish
I have just started thinking up my business names and creating my website which is really interesting this course really helps you! I am still young so ALOT of bits to learn but I'm totaly ready and started to plan my friends wedding!!
Good luck to everyone who's started this course, love to hear how you get on and what you plan to do after you finish!
I'm Sarah from Stockport in Cheshire. I've just started unit b and loving it so far.

I'm Abi from Newquay in Cornwall. I've just started Unit E. How are you all finding it?
I am Helena and I am from Yorkshire, I enrolled on this course in 2013 and then had to put it on hold due to a change in work commitments.
I am currently close to finishing some work related studies and then I am going to throw myself into this course!!
How is everyone finding it so far?
You'll find me lurking in the Staffordshire area in Newcastle under Lyme A little bit in the middle of the country!
Glad to see some other UK students, I was unsure how many there would be when I joined! I'm awaiting the delivery of the pack in the post for the wedding planner course, I want to do this as a hobby initially as I've always had a very keen interest in the wedding jargon since I was a tiny girl!
How are you all finding it?
I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in, in fact I've already started to compile a good directory of businesses in my area who stock various dress designers, specific methods of travel, venues from racecourses to castles and cakes, flowers and up-cycled unique stationery. I get a little ahead of myself sometimes!
I am Millie and I am a London - based student. We should definitely do something more than just writing and organize a meeting for ourselves Summer is coming and there are so many great places where we can go for a weekend of ideas exchange, networking, advice and having fun. We all have so many questions and fears and loads of enthusiasm so what better than share it and get even more inspired in the company of like-minded people.
Good luck and hopefully, we'll see each other
I'm Emma, I'm from South Wales (UK). I started this course because I wanted a career change, unfortunately made redundant in February, so my career fate was out of my hands in any case lol.
Really enjoying so far, although Unit B is taking a long long time
I'm Kelly from Surrey and currently work as a Training and Events Coordinator but am looking to move roles so wanted a qualification behind me.
How is everyone finding it? I haven't received my pack yet but am looking forward to making a start when it arrives.

I am a UK Student, I live in the South West ... Dorset
I need to find ceremony locations on a budget of £300 - this is proving impossible...please help
I signed up yesterday and am awaiting my coursework. Very excited!
I decided to do the course after loving planning my own wedding.
I am in Surrey
I’m from the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire area .
I’ve always had an interest in planning weddings and events, always planned family events for special occasions so I thought why not do this full time and actually do a job I enjoy currently only doing the job I do at the moment as I need to so I can pay the household bills.
My end goal is to be qualified and set up my own business in event and wedding planning both here in the uk as well as aboard
Hope everyone achieves there end goal
I'm in Brighton,:)
I'm in my last year of my Event Planning course and look to work abroad with the knowledge and experience I have gained.
Is any one here local. Would be great to link up with more like minded people.
