INTERVIEW: Get to know the wedding Pro | Vintage Bloom
Get to know the wedding Pro!
Each week, we shine the spot light on our Bride Club ME vendor club members, allowing our readers to get up close and personal with some of the best wedding vendors in town. Here, you can learn more about the people behind some of the businesses that can make your wedding day perfect! This week we interview Nada Gokal, Founder and Director of the Dubai based florist Vintage Bloom. Nada provides us with exclusive insight into her role as Managing Partner and shares with us what she loves the most about her job.
- How long has Vintage bloom been established and what do you do?
Vintage Bloom has been in business for almost two years. We are a floral studio based in Dubai, at the Jumeirah Lake Towers. We provide creative floral design for weddings and events and also hold flower arranging classes.
- What do you love most about your work ?
Every day is special, coming in and seeing flowers all over our studio, makes me smile!! I have a great team, and we all sit together and create new ideas for each wedding and event. The whole creative process is amazing fun!!
It is an absolute pleasure when you have finished a wedding that you have been working on for a few weeks, and when it all comes together, it’s simply a very exciting moment.
- Could you tell us about the floristry services you offer?
We provide flowers and floral decor for all occasions. For weddings we can provide the stage backdrop, wedding arch, bouquets and full table settings.
- What is the most obscure request a bride has asked for?
One bride wanted a 25 ft. tall peacock. It was a challenge, but we managed it. Even obscure requests are welcome, as it’s a challenge and interesting for us.
- Do you offer the bride and groom to-be the chance to review a sample centerpiece and set-up?
When a bride comes in, we see what she likes, and has brought with her as a reference point. Then we discuss some of our ideas that will fit her theme and vision. After that we work out the costing. Once she is happy with the budgets, we create samples of each table as it will look on the actual day.
- How would you describe Vintage Bloom Style?
Most definitely vintage!!
- What is your favourite bloom and why?
I get asked this very often, and honestly, it keeps changing depending on the season. At the moment my favourite is a Rananculus, it has a very soft romantic feel to it, with its perfect petals and full heads.
- Can you tell us about the floristry workshops you run?
We offer a one day workshop through to a more in depth four day workshop at our studio, teaching our students the latest styles, trends & tricks of the trade.
- Lastly, why did we choose to list with Bride club me?
We chose to be listed with Bride club me because it’s one of Dubai’s premiere wedding resource websites and we love the website’s style. We know that Vintage Bloom will be viewed by many!
