LGBT+ Certification Program - Exclusive Offer (Ireland)


LGBT+ Certification Program - Exclusive Offer (Ireland)


Earn the trust of the loyal LGBTQ wedding market by learning from the experts at the Equality Institute. Our Ireland-specific course will empower you with the tools to confidently reach these couples.

To reach this powerful and lucrative gay and lesbian wedding market, you need to be ready. Gay weddings are different and they are very good for business. 

There are 4000+ gay couples living together in Ireland, not to mention the massive destination wedding business potential. That's big business, and fabulous weddings! You don't want to lose business or risk offending potential clients! 

But, for same-sex couples, wedding planning can be a very vulnerable experience. They don’t know who they can trust. How do they know they can trust you? That’s where we come in!

Take it from one of our graduates, Julie Buckley, Just Jules Events

"I have a lot of gay friends and assumed I knew how things worked in the gay community - but I clearly didn't! The course provides you with very useful and important information to help you be successful in the same-sex wedding business. It was engaging, the homework was a good idea and I learned things that I have been able to implement immediately. I need to market to same-sex couples in a much different way than straight couples."

Yes, of course! Please email info {at} theequalityinstitute {dot} com to discuss.
