Designing the happily ever after

11 April, 2018

Master event planner QYT on putting together the dream weddings he is celebrated for

The luxurious elements people compliment in my decor are a reflection of how my mother set up our house.

What do you enjoy designing more- intimate or grand wedding affairs?

I enjoy both equally. It doesn't matter whether the event is large-scale or intimate; it's really the venue that gets me in the right mood. I get really excited if I'm given a magnificent backdrop featuring mountains or a lake to work with, in fact even a beautiful farmhouse with ample greenery will get me keyed up!

How would you describe your signature aesthetic?

Regal, glamorous and extravagant. My aesthetic sense is inspired to the core by my beautiful mother and the lifestyle of my parents. The luxurious elements people compliment in my decor are a reflection of how my mother set up our house. She made sure there were always fresh flowers in the house, dinner was always served on the table in fine bone china, with gorgeous linen, silver cutlery and starched napkins. Her impeccable way of dressing too, impacted my aesthetics. She was always graceful with a dupatta on her head, draped in exquisite shawls paired with stunning jewellery and shoes.

How important a role does decor have in a wedding?

Decor plays a crucial part in a wedding because that’s what will define the whole mood of the event. A splendid setting will elevate the spirits of the bride and groom and their loved ones, creating memories that last forever.

How do you assess the success of an event?

If your client is happy and they appreciate your work, your event was a success. Definitely the best part of the job!

What are your favourite ways to enhance wedding decor on a budget?

A good event manager’s creativity is not hindered by a scant budget. No one event is the same and there’s so much one can do to make the space you’re provided look extravagantly beautiful. As long as my client’s are honest and clear about their budget from the beginning, I am carefree, let my creative juices flow and won’t mind throwing in an extra little something myself as well as a gift to the family. At the end of the day the happier the bride and groom, the happier the event!

How do you handle a difficult bridezilla?

I have been very lucky so far. Even the most panicked bridezilla’s have transformed into super cool brides after hiring me.

What tips would you give to brides-to-be?

The only tip would be to book me for your wedding so that you can relax and enjoy your special day!

Describe your favourite wedding designed by you?

You can't choose a favourite between your children. I do have to say though that I’m the happiest when my clients leave everything on me. Thankfully, 80% of them do and it brings the best out of me. If I had to pick a city I enjoy doing events in most, I’d definitely pick my picturesque hometown, Islamabad.
