Let’s get to know each other



Hi there,

 

I'm Cherrelle

 

I live in beautiful Norfolk with my husband, we've been together almost 12 years, married 8. Along with our 5 year old daughter, Bonnie and our 2 year old daughter Ella.

Oh and our mad dog Trevor who is almost 10!

When I'm not photographing weddings or other families you can usually find me surrounded by princess dresses, train sets and Bluey episodes.


Being based in beautiful north-west Norfolk, I'm surrounded by woodlands and beaches which is perfect for the nature and outdoor lover in me. A huge passion of mine is exploring and travelling the world. I love the feels, smells, textures, colours and people of new places.

(check out some fun facts further down!)


I seek adventure wherever I can having travelled, often solo, to so many wonderful places including climbing the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro and even dragging my husband to elope on a remote snowy fjord in the Arctic circle, Norway in -16 degrees...Magical!!

Super untraditional with no friends or family, madness!...but don't worry, we threw one hell of a party when we got back!


When I'm not dancing and singing along to my favourite dance track, drinking a peppermint tea or tending to my house plants, you will find me feasting on some of my favourite foods such as cypriot and turkish cuisine or a good old chinese takeaway.


Where did it all start?


After taking photos of my travels and then our travels and landscapes for years (just ask my poor husband).

I started photographing our first daughter to capture some of those early special memories.

Friends and family asked me to capture some of their special moments too, and it is here where my passion for relaxed, candid lifestyle photography grew.


From then on I knew that I wanted to keep storytelling, leading me into Weddings.

There is something so special about creating timeless memories for a couple to cherish forever.

Random things about me...
