What is meow now?

This is a dedicated space for me, Sonia Elle of Meow Now, to record ideas and random flashes of inspiration. I'll attempt to keep something close to a journal and it's also a space for me to pop (ahem, showcase) anything non-wedding related.

what do you do for a living?

I'm a Finance Manager (4 days a week) for a pretty cool contemporary art gallery in Central London. I also photograph weddings (but not as much as I once used to!).

Where are you from?

I'm a born and bred Londoner, but I was made in Paris. I sound like an American/Canadian person sometimes according to some people - I tell them it must be because I watched too much TV when I was a kid, tbh, I don't know why I have a hybrid accent and I'm not sure how to get rid of it!). The next question is usually "what's your heritage?" (or something similar). I'm part Algerian and part Cambodian. I have never been to either place (yet.). I'm what you might call an adult orphan, and I'm not really into dwelling on things I can't change... like the London climate (JK... I love you, London!)
