Spend your evenings planning a wedding at City of Bath College
Languages and shorthand are the traditional subjects at evening classes, but now the City of Bath College is offering couples – and singles – a six-week course in planning a wedding. And Rob Sibley, director of development, hopes it might also act as a weekly speed-dating event. “Singles are just as welcome,” he said. “You never know, you might find that two singles coming together might end up having their own wedding as a result.”
Brides and grooms-to-be will be coached on budgeting, booking the venue and even preparing the wedding breakfast. The course is run by professional wedding planner and event caterer, Fiona May, who suggested the idea of a ‘plan the perfect wedding’ course to the college.
Ms May, who has helped plan over 50 weddings, said: “Your wedding day is one of the biggest, most important days of your life, and one that you want to make sure goes smoothly. I’m passionate about making sure that such an important day goes smoothly and is as stress free as possible for the happy couple.”
The six-week course, which starts next Tuesday, costs £120 per person. A couple planning their wedding will have to pay £240 on top of the cost of their actual nuptials but the college maintains their course is for people on all budgets.

“We thought quite hard about the fee but given the cost of weddings today we don’t think £120 is actually that much,” Mr Sibley said. “If people end up saving some costs because they’ve learnt how to effectively plan their wedding then we think it’s money well spent.”
But for anyone hoping to ‘graduate’ from the course with full marks in wedding planning, they will be disappointed: there are no qualifications on offer. The course is part of the college’s Love2Learn series, where students learn new creative or practical skills such as art or DIY.
