Tell us about yourself!
I started off initially by renting party supplies for various events like weddings, dinner parties and corporate one events . That opened up opportunities to be associated with bigger event management companies . The working and managing of events was a new aspect to me, so I learnt quite a lot by just observing the setups, the timings and a lot of things about these events.
Those days, Omani weddings were a lot more simpler but now it’s a raging industry with a lot of focus on detailing. The challenge was almost inspiring to me. There was so much happening and I wanted to be a part of it! Once you get a glimpse of this glamorous industry, you don’t really feel like stopping.
What inspired you to start the Wedding Hall?
My futuristic dream as such was to open a Wedding Hall of our own, so I wanted to get a feel of the wedding industry before bringing it to life. Working with bigger event management companies, some in Oman, some of the international companies who organised Weddings in Oman by supplying party related item gave me a lot of insight in to the wedding industry. The experience I gained made the Al Masarat Wedding Hall a reality. It was a slow process but something I loved and was definitely worth it!

The Hall comes with all the modern facilities required for any kind of events , can hold at least 600 packs and has a complete classy look. There is a separate bridal room for the Bride to get ready or relax . There are two buffet rooms interlinked to the service area, to make it easy for the service staff. We have also set up a DJ room with its own audio system and fixed light effects, more of the professional kind to add to the ambience. We have professionals to control this setup on the basis of customer requirement. We are equipped to provide any type of seating arrangement and colour schemes as per the wedding theme.
Initially we were only renting the hall and in time we added other facilities so that we can provide full service if required. Now we provide most of the services like the setup, backdrop, photography services, invitation cards and more in house. We provide them assistance in almost every aspect, and we became the one stop solution providers for any event. There are set packages to fit in to personal choice or budget. Recently we started a catering service, one of the most important aspect of any wedding.

The kitchen was incorporated into the hall right from the beginning keeping in mind our future prospects. I wanted to take my time and have it in control. The kitchen is all set to prepare wide range of cosines from the traditional Omani cuisine to most of the international cuisines. All set to handle the diverse range of customers and their palate .
