Oui || Let us introduce ourselves

Hi there, and welcome to 'You, Me and Oui'. Our names are Alex & Cathryn. We are husband and wife, we live down in Falmouth, Cornwall in the UK. We have been married for just over 4 years, after we married in May 2012. Lots has happened since then...we can't wait to tell you all about it!

We wanted to set up 'You, Me and Oui' as a diary of our lives down here in Cornwall. We are currently in the process of buying our first home and we really want to capture that alongside the places we visit and some of our favourite local cafes, restaurants and businesses.

First of all, why our call ourselves 'You, Me and Oui'...? We thought for ages about what to call our little corner of the internet and we went through a massive list. We originally came up with 'You, Me and We' as a way of bringing you guys into our lives. However as a little play on words, we changed 'we' to 'oui' to represent Alex's french roots!

So let us introduce ourselves...

My name is Cathryn and I am 29. I am a full time womenswear fashion designer for a Cornish clothing company, and I have been a fashion designer for 10 years now.  I have been incredibly lucky to work for some of the best UK brands during those10 years, and have travelled the world with my job. I also run a wedding stationery business called 'Sincerely May' which I absolutely love doing. I get to work with the coolest couples around, designing modern and unique wedding stationery for them. I run this by myself with Alex's help. As you can imagine this takes up a lot of my spare time.

Likes: Getting out and about in Cornwall, coffee, calligraphy, reading and country music.

My name is Alex and I am 31. I am a Barista and Photographer. Since we moved home to the UK from Australia...much more on that story to follow in the future, I have been fortunate enough to follow my dreams and completely change my career, having worked in office based Customer Service jobs for about 10 years or so. I now work as a barista/manager at Espressini Artisan Coffee in Falmouth, one of the leading speciality cafes in the UK right now. I complement this, already full time job with photography work, which includes wedding photography and producing content for a number of local businesses. I absolutely love what I do and have been so lucky to have Cathryn's full support whilst following these dreams.

Likes: Living in Cornwall, coffee (obviously), photography, music, a good craft beer.
