The lady who helps people’s dreams come true at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain
How did you end up in weddings?
I always dreamt of being an events specialist dealing mostly with weddings. I want to create those wonderful moments that last forever.
What is the most magical part?
The moment when you see the happiness and satisfaction in the couple’s eyes.
What’s the biggest wedding you’ve worked on?
In winter 2015. It was on The Ritz-Carlton’s private island and, since it was an outdoor venue, I had to deal with a lot of logistics. It was a high profile wedding, so there was no margin for error.
Why would you advise someone else to get involved in the wedding industry?
Every wedding is different. As you go along, you will meet different people who will challenge your abilities and imagination. It is a rollercoaster ride, but the fulfillment is like no other.
