with Pascal

What inspired your career journey?

It seemed natural to follow the family business. Coming from a press background, I was one of the first in London to shoot weddings in a reportage style. I think my clients found it refreshing to be presented with something less stilted and rigid than the usual trends. Over the years we began to couple this with a more editorial aspect to our weddings, giving both an honest reflection of the day and a more sentimental reflection of the occasion.

What are your trend predictions for 2016?

I’m seeing a tendency towards more muted tones in the decoration, but generally, more simplicity, with well-considered, tasteful details. There’s a growing passion for crafting something unique for your own wedding.

Do you live by any motto or philosophy?

Some aspects of human existence and interacting transcend culture, creed and politics. With these stripped away, there is the true essence of humanity; timeless. You can really see this at weddings. It is a privilege to be included in so many days which are dedicated to the joy of two people in love.

What would your best piece of advice be for someone beginning his or her planning journey?

Meet a new person every day. Expand your horizons.
