Terms & Conditions / Business Contract
The Terms & Conditions/Business Contract for use between a wedding planner and clients is vitally important. Suitable for small, independent wedding planning businesses, these Terms & Conditions have been developed by the founders of UKAWP, drawing on their extensive wedding planning experience, and, of course, in conjunction with a solicitor to ensure a legally sound, practical and comprehensive document which will provide security for both the planner and their clients.
