Use of the SPWV Logo

We are working hard to get the society known nationally through social media and regular media channels. You will have the right to use it in email signatures, on your branded stationery and it should be displayed on your website linking back to your listing on our directory to show you are a current member.

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.

Monthly Networking Meetings

Monthly Zoom networking calls to grow your wedding industry network. These will include update from the SPWV brainstorming sessions or mini trainings.

Monthly Open Work Room

On the first Monday of the month come and work in an open work room on Facebook with us. Working alone is difficult sometimes and it's easy to get distracted these rooms helps us stay focused and accountable.

Your Masterclasses

There will be 6 Masterclasses running every October-March. 

Here's what a Masterclass will look like

Video Tutorials

A series of videos will walk you through a step-by-step process of implementing the subject of the Masterclass.

Workbooks and Printables

Where appropriate Masterclasses will include a workbook, printables or templates to help guide you through and implement what you learn.

The Masterclasses are accessible at any time through the Members Area and you have access to them for as long as you are a member in good standing.

Here’s what SPWV members say about our wedding association...

Vikki Richman

Member SPWV

When I heard about the SPWV I thought what a bloody good idea! You sign up to a code of conduct and couples researching on the site know that all the suppliers on there are following those ethics. That's huge for me because being ethical is one of my core values as a person and as a business.

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.

Chris Hobson

Founding Member SPWV

It is so important for wedding customers to know they are dealing with someone who is trustworthy and honest and this group does just that. So if you are a wedding vendor join up as it is great for your brand

About Donna

Donna spent ten 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 was founded in 2015 but had been building across her entire wedding career 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 20 year old daughter, her extremely supportive tech savvy boyfriend and her two fur babies Twinkle & Kitty who you may see or hear in live videos.
