Join today and be part of the movement 

Helping to elevate standards across the wedding industry

Be part of our membership and work with us to elevate the industry, increase your visibility and streamline your business.

If you have ever seen a 'professional' provide a less than professional service.

If you have lost clients to an 'everything and the kitchen sink for £300' vendor. 

If you want to see a visible gap created between you and those who aren't running a professional business, the Society is for you.

Here’s What You’ll Get When You Sign Up

The Code of Conduct < Click to Read

The Members area

Here is where you will find your Masterclasses, the Code of Conduct, a link to the Facebook group and access to your member application. We will work on building out the site to store useful resources for you.

Members Only Community

This will be our corner of Facebook. Where you can ask for help from your fellow members, network and use us as your sounding board. 


Access to the SPWV Logo

We will be working hard to get the society known nationally through social media and regular media channels. You will have access to use it in email signatures, on your branded stationery and it should be displayed on your website linking back to the SPWV website.

Access to monthly networking

Monthly Zoom networking calls to increase your wedding industry network. These will include brainstorming sessions or mini trainings.

Inclusion in our public directory

Our directory will be more than a wedding vendor list. We will be offering brides help with their budgets and planning to ensure they hire the best vendors they can afford from within our membership. It will start as a basic directory but we have big plans for this area of the business as we grow.

Social media shout outs

We will regularly shout out our members on social media. Drawing people to your websites and social media channels.

Coming to the members area...

There will be 6 Masterclasses running every October-March. 

Here's what a Masterclass will look like

1

Video Tutorials

These videos will walk you through a step by step process of implementing the subject of the Masterclass.

2

Workbooks and Printables

Each Masterclass will include a workbook, printables or templates to help guide you through the Masterclass and implement what you learn.

3

Monthly Live Call

At the end of the month we will have a live Q&A where you can ask the teacher of the Masterclass to elaborate or get clarification around a particular step.

Bonuses 

Bonus 1
Testimonials Masterclass

Word of mouth is one of the most powerful and high converting methods of getting leads, so if you have yet to leverage testimonials read on.


In this masterclass, we will look at the importance of testimonials. We will go through the best way to collect them and how to display them for maximum impact. Hint: it isn't to have a page called testimonials on your website.


You will receive templates and outlines to help you put a process in place to make collecting testimonials easier. If you have a Virtual Assistant, this is a perfect job for them. 

Bonus 2
Finance Masterclass

Now more than ever we need to know our numbers especially those of us who are self employed. 


This masterclass will walk you through step by step your personal and business finances. By the end of the masterclass you will have a clear idea of all your numbers and what you will need to do in order to make those numbers work.


For those of you that don't like math don't worry I got you! There will be templates you can copy to plug your numbers in and it will calculate it all for you.

Bonus 3
Re-Branding Masterclass

If you have been thinking a re-brand might be just what you need to get back out there promoting your business, this one's for you.


Your brand tells a story to your clients and that story will play a big part of their decision to hire you. This Masterclass will walk you through creating that story and creating the imagery to portray it authentically


We will look at brand words, fonts, colours and images. As well as websites and email content. Your work book will be a place to store all of your brand information.

These bonus masterclasses are ready and waiting for you as soon as you join

About Donna

Donna spent nine years as a wedding photographer and also spent a year planning weddings at a local wedding venue. She did a diploma in photography in 2009 and took the wedding planning course with the UKWA in 2017. She has never stopped educating herself as she believes knowledge is a gift and now she wants to share that gift with you.


The idea for the SPWV came in 2015 and she has been excited to create a society of like minded people who also believe, as she does, that couples deserve to receive a professional service from a friendly vendor that sees people not pound signs.


Donna lives in Northamptonshire, with her 19 year old daughter, her extremely supportive tech savvy boyfriend and her two cats (or second & third children, as she refers to them) Twinkle & Kitty.

Here’s what her clients and SPWV members say...

Just a few comments from previous clients and founding members. Fen actually came to Donna as a friend who was disappointed with her wedding photographs. It was her story and Donna's subsequent experiences that prompted the launch of SPWV

Phil Lewin

Founding Member SPWV

Brides and grooms need to be sure that they are dealing with people who are committed to their line of business. As committed vendors, we need a body to promote us. That's why I joined the SPWV.

Rachal Wellington

Wedding Client

'Donna was absolutely perfect! I couldn't have imagined our wedding without her. We were able to enjoy our day because Donna was organised and prepared and kept us on schedule. We can't thank her enough for her service.'

Nicky Fish

Founding Member SPWV

I think couples are looking for that little bit of reassurance that the suppliers they are booking are genuine and that they can be trusted. By displaying the SPWV badge I believe this will help attract more clients and in particular the right type of client who cares about quality.

Fen Rosser

Book Reviewer

What a read! I definitely would have appreciated something like this before sorting our wedding photographer out. We actually made most of those mistakes that you talk of and a guide like this would have been invaluable
