Promoting Professionalism and Integrity within the Wedding Industry

The National Association of Wedding Professionals (NAWP) was formed in 2013 by Amanda Sherlock, Lester Gethings and Siobhan Craven-Robins to promote professionalism and integrity within the UK Wedding industry.

Between them, the three co-founders offer a combined 40 years of industry experience in luxury Wedding Planning services. As the UK Wedding industry continued to develop, they felt there was a growing need to establish an association for like-minded wedding professionals.

NAWP was launched in July 2013 and very quickly gained momentum. After an overwhelming response from industry professionals at an especially commissioned Focus Group in September, the NAWP was further developed beyond a networking group to a professional association in an, as yet, unregulated industry.

In 2016, Hazel Parsons joined the NAWP as their PR and Social Media expert. Hazel’s years of experience in this field make her a valuable asset to both the NAWP and its members.

The aim of NAWP is to promote professional standards and ethics within the UK Wedding industry in order that a consistency of standards is maintained to meet the expectations of our Wedding clientele.

The NAWP logo is synonymous with excellence. Clients know on seeing the logo that they are booking a vendor of professional and ethical calibre whose work has been recognised and acknowledged through stringent joining criteria.
