The Arabian Academy of Wedding and Event Planning is one of 7 campuses that make up the International Academy of Wedding and Event Planning and covers the GCC region. We are the global leaders in online wedding and event planning education and our 3000+ graduates are testament to that.

At the Academy we are passionate about helping aspiring wedding and event professionals get the career they’ve been dreaming about. We offer a variety of specialisations so you can turn your passion into a career as a wedding planner, event manager, floral designer, event stylist, or wedding stylist. We train and mentor people just like you, so that you can create a job you love.

Our online courses take wedding and event education to the next level. Not only will you gain a comprehensive knowledge of the industry and its practices, our detailed audio tutorials and ‘how to’ videos will develop your practical skills. Online learning allows our students to fit their study around their work and family, studying at a pace that suits them.

We practice what we preach and all of our tutors are working industry professionals who have been where you are now. As a student, you will be assigned your own tutor to mentor and guide you through your course and beyond. We also work with a board of industry experts who consult on our course content, including one of Dubai’s leading wedding planners and designers Zainab Alsalih of Carousel Wedding Agency and the amazingly talented wedding superstar, David Tutera.

How Our Courses Work

The Academy courses are delivered via our online campus using a variety of engaging media including practical “how to” videos, audio podcasts, written PDF handouts and plenty of templates, checklists and cheat sheets.

We’ve worked hard to ensure that we deliver the best experience possible for all our students, offering them the training and support they need to make it in the industry. One of the huge benefits to studying with us is that you receive lifetime access to your course. This allows you to refer back to the course material whenever you need to refresh your wedding and event pro knowledge.

And the best bit? Because it’s online the course content gets updated as changes in the industry occur making sure your education stays relevant and in line with current trends. On top of this we are regularly producing new exciting course tutorial videos in our amazing film studio.

Our Academy Advisory Board of Industry Experts is made up of some of the top names in the business and we work hard to nurture these relationships and seek new opportunities on behalf of our students. We regularly partner with professionals in the industry to host networking events and workshops that our students can attend.

And of course there are industry partnerships which deliver many benefits to our students and graduates, such as our partnership with Aisle Planner, allowing our students to work with industry software as part of the course assignments.

Whether your career goal is to gain employment within the industry or to build a successful weddings and events business, we are here to help. All our diploma courses include business training to prepare you for launching your business professionally, and market your services with confidence. And our Tutors are all creative business owners who act as your Mentors helping you to learn more about launching and running a successful wedding or event business.
