Graduate Experiences

Whilst planning my own wedding I was in my element and I thought to myself, “I could definitely make a career out of this!” And so I started looking into courses that I could complete from home and found the Wedding Academy.

I knew I didn’t want to take the ‘own business’ route – I wanted to work within a venue and so I started my course with the wedding venue option which covers everything I need to know from show rounds to marketing – which is fab. As I moved forward with my course I then got a position as a Wedding Coordinator within a venue.
