  •  Let us talk about the wedding planners’ conference in Greece. How did that go? What are some of the emerging wedding trends seen at the event? 

It was an incredible experience and a very beneficial conference in terms of understanding the worldwide wedding industry and how the market changes between continents. It was a melting pot of global wedding ideas and an inspiring platform for those wishing to expand globally.  For already established international planners I think it gave a better insight into the expectations of couples from the four corners of the globe.

·       How did you personally benefit from the conference’s outcome?

I think that any planner and supplier attending this will come away with a broader knowledge and more dynamic outlook. Regardless of experience it was a learning experience for everyone in the room.

·         Describe your wedding planning style. How do you approach every wedding?

We chose the name Couture because we wanted to offer a one off bespoke service to our clients. We approach each wedding with the individuality it deserves. Our services are tailored to suit our client’s individual needs. We listen very carefully to the clients individual needs and then customise our services to meet those needs.
·         What is your favourite wedding venue/location in Dubai?

There are several exceptional venues in Dubai each one offering something unique. Some venues have exceptional outdoor spaces; some have rare palatial ballrooms while others have an distinctive features that cannot be rivalled. There are many unique venues in Dubai from 7 star hotels to magical desert retreats. There really is something to suit everyones taste.


·         What is the most exciting project you have undertaken?

I have been fortunate enough to work on many great projects. There have been many milestones celebrated over the last ten years.  At the moment our global expansion has been very exciting and this year we executed events in Shanghai and Geneva and in 2015 we will also go to Las Vegas. So working internationally has been both exciting and challenging and we look forward to increasing our overseas presence.
