BLISS AND SARAH WINWARD FLORAL WORKSHOP

Last month I had the pleasure of releasing my inner florist and learn from Sarah Winward, an American based florist I have followed on social media for a long time. Sarah’s style is unlike anything I have seen in the UAE wedding industry but it is a style that I love and I think brides are starting to take note of here; romantic, unstructured and sometimes beautifully dramatic, full of textures and slightly more unusual florals.

Creative and inspiring, it was such a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful initiative from Urooj at Bliss.

From Urooj, ‘This idea of The Winged Bouquet Floral Workshop Series travelled with me to this region and started coming alive when I joined Bliss over the summer. If it weren’t for Bliss, the vision would not have materialized. It had to be Sarah for this first series; her aesthetic is so free and fluid, there is no formula, no rigid guidelines for what she creates. Yet her work has a signature distinct style and that resonated with me the most. Participants at the workshop series were from such diverse spaces, we had aspiring entrepreneurs, established businesses, stylists, florists, event planners and even people who were trying their hand at it for the first time. Everyone’s really excited to know who we’re collaborating with next and that, to me, means something beautiful has been created that people want to experience over and over again.’

Luckily Maria Sundin was on board to capture what was a genuinely wonderful event.

Personally, I cannot wait for the next one….
