Graduate Experiences

I loved my time studying with the Wedding Academy. The course led me through the stages to help set up my business. It gave me a fab start and most importantly the confidence when it came to starting out and entering the world of weddings.

The online global community is invaluable and really lovely to know that if you have any questions, someone is on hand to help and advise. The Wedding Academy is like a little wedding industry family each supporting each other’s dreams.

If you're looking for a creative career and you have an eye for colour and details, and would like to work in the wedding industry, then this could be your perfect course. It's an entry level course designed with no previous experience required and is perfect for those of you looking to develop the skills and insider knowledge you'll need to start a new career as a wedding stylist.

The Academy is a private training organisation and the qualifications offered are both nationally and internationally recognised within the Wedding industry. There are no formal qualifications required to be a Wedding Planner, but studying with an industry recognised company like the Wedding Academy will not only equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to succeed, but also give your future clients confidence that they are hiring a professional.

The role of a wedding stylist has become the new 'must have' career. It's become popular with clients who want to plan their own wedding but need help with making it look amazing. As a wedding stylist you'll work with a couple to bring the design elements of their day together. This can include assisting them with design ideas, sourcing decor and styling elements, setting up and styling of the day, as well as post event break down.
