About us

Bloom Consultancy is a unique and bespoke Muslim Matchmaking service for busy modern professional Muslims who are looking to meet someone but do not want to use an online dating agency or the traditional avenues for finding a meaningful and long-lasting relationship. The online dating world can be impersonal and frustrating whilst introductions through friends and family can be hit and miss.


Shabana and Ansa have first-hand experience of how difficult it is to find someone in a world which is getting smaller as a result of social media but at the same time it is increasingly difficult to meet a partner.  They wanted to create a service which they wish had existed when they were single and looking to meet someone.  A confidential discrete service run by professional women based on trust and integrity. After thinking about doing something to help the millions of single Muslims in the UK, Bloom was finally launched in 2019.  Whilst Bloom is London based, it has clients throughout the UK.





Take back control



With Bloom, you are in the driving seat with guidance and support from us at every step of your journey to finding someone to share your life with.


You can wait for the "right" person to find you but, that could take a very long time. Let us help you make the process fun, enjoyable and ultimately rewarding.
