Help co-ordinate a real wedding or shadow a successful wedding planner
Work experience placements from the Wedding Planning School are available exclusively to our graduates. Once you have completed any of our award-winning and informative courses, you will then have the chance to take part in our work experience programme, either by shadowing an already successful wedding planner or co-ordinating a real-life wedding yourself through the placements offered below.

To give you the best possible start in your career and kick-start your portfolio, The Wedding Planner School guarantees voluntary experience exclusively for our planning course graduates and elite course graduates upon passing their respective course.
Every wedding season we place more than 50 students into wedding planning work experience placements. You will help brides to execute their plans, or shadow a professional wedding planner.
