Don’t be afraid to freelance for free and trail a wedding photographer and or videorapher is to assist the pros and in a year or two you may have learned enough to shoot your own wedding.

   As a Chef or Cook you can go to culinary school or college and get a degree in the culinary arts. Or you can find a job in a catering hall or restaurant and in time learn the skills from the top  Chefs and Cooks in your area. I suggest if you decide to get on the job training, you should  work in different restaurants for at least 6 months at a time to learn different cooking styles and techniques.  Pastry Chefs play an important role in the wedding industry because they make fabulous wedding cakes and pastries. Remember if you have no experience don’t be afraid to work for free in a good restaurant under a master Chef or Cook because a culinary school can cost up to 20,000 plus and can take six months or more, and you will still make minimum wages and as an apprentice and may be  paying back high student loans to pay for these trade schools and colleges.
