Hello! My name is Ceri (pronounced ‘Kerry’, full name spelt Ceiridwen – but don’t worry about that Welsh mouthful, Ceri will do just fine!)
I am extremely excited to join Team Venetia as PA/Client & Photography Studio Manager and all round list-ticker-offer. Although Venetia is indeed a modern day super woman, you can forgive her in needing a little bit of help with the nitty gritty! That’s where I come in. With a varied role, I will be supporting Venetia Norrington Photography behind the scenes, which happily includes the honour of being part of your individually tailored wedding journey, pregnancy pictures, personal branding shoots, or big family portrait (complete with fidgety toddler wonderfully calmed and smiling by Venetia for your Mum’s living room wall)!
I grew up amongst the dreaming spires of Oxford, taking it all for granted of course, complaining through my teen years doing my best Kevin & Perry impressions. Only now looking back feeling thoroughly lucky to have such a happy picturesque base (thanks Mum!).
Moving on to London in my early twenties, I forged my career working as an eager unpaid intern assisting various stylists trudging Oxford Street with suitcases of clothes to return, up to Senior Account Manager at an exciting and forward thinking fashion PR company.
Whilst London was full of fun, crazy long hours and good people, I felt it was time to slow the pace just a little and start afresh somewhere new – hello Bristol! Thankfully, an inspired move.
So, here are a few things I love … you can have fun heavily judging, ‘Oh she’s so cliché…’
David Attenborough documentaries, hip hop, live funk+jazz nights, feeding the ducks, wine with my parents, Sunday sofa days with my boyfriend, walking through rockpools, homemade Thai meals, rum & ginger, ticking off a to-do list, making photo albums, trainers, organising friends parties and BOGGLE! The ultimate word game. It’s possible I may be known as the boggle queen.
I hope to speak with you soon and look forward to being part of Team VN! Goooo team!
