What is wedding planner insurance?

We know that every wedding planner wants to ensure that their clients get the most from their big day. However, if the best laid plans go awry our wedding planner insurance offers you peace of mind should your clients take legal action against you.

At Markel we have more than 25 years of experience as a specialist insurance company. Our insurance has been designed by industry experts to offer comprehensive cover.

Do wedding co-ordinators need insurance?

To protect your wedding planning business against the unexpected, arranging wedding planner insurance can be beneficial.

If your client's big day is affected due to an error on your part whilst giving advice or providing planning services, you could face the worst-case scenario of angry clients taking legal action against you for negligence.

Like any business that relies on word of mouth, we know how important your professional reputation is. That's why our insurance for wedding planners provides you with cover to defend against a range of legal claims. This ensures your business and hard work is protected, should the worst happen.

What does wedding planner insurance cover?

The types of cover we offer as part of our wedding planner insurance policy can help protect you and your business if an incident occurs. This includes:

  • Failing to book a venue – if you were to provide negligent services (for example, failing to book a venue before the wedding) and your client’s big day had to be rescheduled, our policy would cover the legal costs in defending the claim, as well as compensation payable to your client.
  • Booking an inadequate supplier – if your client requires you to source suppliers for your wedding (such as catering or entertainment) and the client is unhappy with the quality of their service, they may take legal action against you for failing to provide a suitable supplier.
  • Unhappy clients – Sometimes it’s impossible to meet the expectations of your clients for such an important day. Even when you’re not at fault, our policy will pay the legal costs in defending a claim made against you.
