I’m a lively Argentine living in Brighton with my English husband, Stephen. Shyness is not one of my many qualities I’m afraid! Technically, I’m French but you can ask me more about that over coffee.
I love dancing, chocolate (who doesn’t? – I did actually have a boyfriend who hated it and it didn’t last) and I’m addicted to Small Batch Coffee.
My parents built a sailboat and we spent half of our time sailing so that explains my obsession with the sea. Forgive the spam: photos of Brighton’s seafront are pretty much all I post on my IG stories.
We did the legal bit in brighton and asked a friend to officiate the wedding in argentina. it was one of the best decisions we made!
Stephen and I go to a lot of concerts because we love music. If you have any recommendations get in touch, we’re into the melancholic and wistful (a nice way of saying “depressing”) like Nina Simone, Bon Iver, Laura Marling, Andrew Bird… all that stuff.
The truth is, I have a pretty eclectic taste when it comes to music (and books and movies actually). It ranges from classic rock to reggeaton and includes classical music, folk, easy listening and everything in between.
But anyway, I digress. When planning our wedding, photography and music were our top priorities so I made a playlist for the entire day myself.
I divided them into different parts of the day. It’s a total of 8 playlists because I made one with an extra 2 hours for the party, just in case (better safe than sorry!). You can listen to them on Spotify, my username is Manon Pauffin de Saint Morel.
Hit play to get a taste.

TEA OR COFFEE?
DOGS OR CATS?

SOMETHING FEW PEOPLE KNOW...
I grew up in the Southern most city of the world: Ushuaia. It’s pretty much falling off the face of the earth.
GOT THE POSTCARD
I grew up here!
It's 13.321km away from Brighton in a straight line.
We spent three weeks in Cuba and it was the best trip ever!
I live here and I love it!
I have to get three flights and use 5 different airports when I go home to Ushuaia.
Joni & Aurelia had an industrial wedding at Die Giesserei and a post-wedding shoot by Lake Zürich .
Surrender session with Franzi & Basti in the centre of Berlin.
Johnny & Kat had a super chilled wedding on the beach.
NEW YORK, US
I fell in love with the city when we went on holiday a few years back.
I'd love to shoot a wedding there so if you're thinking about it, get in touch!
I'm dreaming of an intimate wedding or an elopement in beautiful (sunny?) Scotland.
Japan is definitely on the travel list. If you're getting married there or you'd like to do a surrender session drop me an email.
I was born here and this city holds a lot of memories for me. Shooting a wedding or a surrender session here would be a way to bring it all full circle.
