Beautiful, opulent and breathtaking are just some of the words that spring in to mind when one mentions floral design, Karen Tran.
Often dubbed as the ‘Oprah of Floral Design,’ Karen Tran has a gift for creating awe-inspiring and magical settings for luxury weddings and floral design.
With over 20 years in the industry, she now travels the world, designing epic floral arrangements for famous clients as well as hosting elaborate floral master class workshops for her fans and aspiring florists. The bespoke classes take place in some of the world’s most glamorous venues over a few days.
The Floral Experience workshops mainly target wedding professionals who would like to learn how to infuse elegance and sophistication into their events. It is an invaluable experience for attendees as they have the privilege to be guided from none other than Karen Tran, as well as be in the company of industry professionals. Karen sees the master class as a way to teach what she loves, imparting her knowledge on floral design.
More recently, the stylist along with her incredibly talented team of designers presented a three day Floral Experience course at the luxury 5 star Italian hotel, Ca’Sagredo on the picturesque grand canal in Venice.
Attendees were treated to guest speaker sessions from Italian wedding industry expert, Andrea Naar Alba and Karen herself.
One of the highlights of this particular workshop was the grand scale floral design workshop where participants were given a chance to create exquisite floral installations.
The icing on the cake arrived on the final day where participants were given the opportunity to work alongside Karen within the splendour of Ca’Sagredo to set the scene for the Venetian masquerade gala dinner. The results were nothing short of spectacular with everybody receiving the royal treatment.
Amid an 18th century backdrop, the room was completely transformed, adorned with larger than life, luscious floral centrepieces in a multitude of soft and romantic hues. The extravagant table tops featured clusters of fresh blooms, bespoke candelabras, fine chinaware, custom linens, stationery and handcrafted Venetian masks supplied by Atelier Marega.
A magnificent floral gown took centre stage in the foyer for guests to pose in front of for photographs.
Upon completion of the floral design master class, attendees were awarded with a certificate and above all the chance to say they worked with the master of flowers, Karen Tran.
Karen pours her heart and soul into every event, making it a magical affair for everyone involved.
The floral design extraordinaire leaves no stones unturned and it’s no wonder why her master class events are a hot ticket for wedding and event experts worldwide.
