Wedding Planning Mentor Zoe McKeown

written by


Here at the Wedding Academy we have a wonderful team of Mentors who help our students to become wedding planners and stylists.

They work with them to help them set up their own business or to get a job in the wedding industry.

Whatever they need to realise their dream of becoming a Wedding Planner.

Over the next few weeks we’re doing a spotlight feature on each of our mentors starting off with UK and European Mentor, Zoe McKeown.

As an experienced Wedding Planner with over a decade of experience she’s helped launch the careers of many students over her ten years with the Wedding Academy.

Like so many coming into wedding planning Zoe was looking for a more flexible career that would allow her to spend more time with her three daughters.

And that’s when the idea of becoming a Wedding Planner started to take shape.

As a secondary school teacher in a previous life she had lots of great crossover skills including organisation, creative thinking and lots and lots of planning.

I’ll leave you to hear from Zoe exactly what she loves about being a Wedding Planner and how it’s fitted into her life as a Mum raising a family.

And if you’d like to find out more about how to become a wedding planner just like Zoe then book a FREE career consultation call with her here.
