So, I don’t think I have officially introduced myself over on this blog….
It’s abit weird to say ‘Hi, I’m Charlotte’ and also chat about yourself (one of the hardest things to do for me) but when I read a blog and check in often, it’s nice to know a little bit about the writer. To give you a little introduction, my name is Charlotte. I’m a wedding photographer, blogger, big dreamer, tea addict and lover of the beach!
I’m a daughter, a sister, a girlfriend….now fiancé (OMG!) and a puppy owner!
I have always loved to write. Having journaled most of my life and being a massive lover of reading blogs – all sorts from wedding blogs, to lifestyle and travel blogs – it made sense for me to start documenting my adventures, journey and travels! I recently left my full time day job in the Financial Industry to pursue my dream career as a wedding photographer and I am really keen to start showing my other work. Whilst I am primarily a wedding photographer, I have my camera on me the majority of the time! Documenting our travels, my day to day, even walks down to the beach. My background though has been abit varied, from homeware design, to insurance, to working in London for 3 years in Canary Wharf, to now pursuing my dream career and running my own business, working as a wedding photographer and freelancer.
I am a Dorset bumpkin at heart, although I was born in London, and also spent the last 3 years living there, I have lived in Dorset for the majority of my life! I love it – it’s home to me and I love that it has the perfect balance between city, country and sea!
So I guess that’s the main stuff really, the random stuff …. what can I say? Well, I am a sweetie addict and would eat a bag of Haribo like a packet of crisps! That I have a major travel bug and would love to see the world (you can see my Travel Bucket list here! I adore my puppy, Denzel, who is literally a boss….although some people may laugh, he is a Shih Tzu, but my fiance and I wouldn’t change him for the world. He is brilliant, cheers me up when I am down, gives the best hellos! The curls in my hair fall out too quickly after spending ages curling it, I get crazy annoying hiccups…alot…at very weird times of the day – usually after drinking too quickly or chatting too much! I love gin&tonic and my ideal meal, would either be sausage and mash, or cheese, wine and bread!! OMG, baked camembert!
And I have the most wonderful fiance, partner in crime and best friend, Curly (yes that’s his nickname! He’s actually called Curtis!) I am sure you will see him more throughout this blog, hear about him and our adventures – and if you’re interested, I am also doing a blogging series on planning our wedding over on my wedding blog here! I will definitely introduce him properly in another post I am sure! But we have been together for 9 years tomorrow!! 9 YEARS I can’t believe it! Earlier this year we had the most incredible experience of a road trip for 1 month in America – blog posts coming soon! I did one on our day in Palm Springs – was so gutted we only got to spend one day there!
Anyway, that’s a little bit about me, and hopefully we will get to know each other more over the years! Feel free to say hi below! Check in tomorrow, I am going to be sharing a little bit about my journey into starting my business and investing in yourself!
Much love, Charlotte
