UBara is a Japanese word that translates to ROSE. My family name is ROSEY. My grandmother, Hilda, named me Rosey. I was born and raised on the beautiful and popular island, Jamaica. It is extremely common for a Jamaican like myself to have multiple nick names/family names. I was born in a fishing/agrarian village named Fairy Hill in the lush Parish/State of Portland. My middle name is Gaysha. Geisha is also Japanese. Geisha in Japanese translates to ‘art person’. I love art. I’m an artist. I am artistic. I am UBara. I studied Japanese at Widener University for three years, graduating w/ a minor. So, UBARA is a blend of all things I love: Art, Japanese Culture, Nature, and Weddings; all balanced ‘in memorium’ of my grandmother, Hilda Phillips. So, when you’re thinking of or saying the word UBARA, you’re associating yourself with my original identity, my spirit and my ambition. You’re actually connecting with me as a family member or close friend. You’re calling me “art person” – a woman in love with art, weddings, romance, human connection, nature, and most of all memories. It’s also intentional that I build close and solid relationships with my couples/clients – most of them become life long friends throughout/post this wedding journey!
‘UBara’ is pronounced “ooh” NOT “yew” “you” or “yu” but “OU”, click here, you can sing along!
UBara is your friend, Rosey documenting your story, while fostering human connection and living out her divine purpose.
