Joanna and Daniel’s wedding at St. Mawes Castle, St Mawes, on Saturday, 27th July, 2013, with Lulu.
Unto us a future King was born the very week that Joanne and Daniel tied the knot and he shall be known as George Alexander Louis or ‘His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge’ for short!
What a wonderful historic event to mark the occasion of your wedding.
Joanne and Daniel’s own historic day was a truly beautiful occasion held in the regal setting of St Mawes Castle, majestically perched on Cornwall’s Roseland Peninsula.
This well-preserved Henry VIII’s coastal artillery fortress was built between 1539 and 1545 through fear of an invasion from France and Spain.
It shared the task of guarding the key anchorage of Carrick Roads with its larger sister, Pendennis Castle, on the other side of the Fal estuary.
With fabulous architecture and vistas to die for, it’s not hard to see why both castles have become sought after wedding venues.
With Lily and Lola in action on wedding duties in North Cornwall, Chauffeur Brett had the honour of escorting Lulu across the Fal River on the historic King Harry Chain Ferry to the Roseland for Joanne and Daniel’s appointment of a lifetime.
The weather was to remain fine and warm all day with a somewhat elusive sun managing to break through from time to time.
Chauffeur Brett kindly took along a camera for the day and was able to capture a few lovely poses in between discharging his duties. Of course, Joanne and Daniel’s official picture taker Christine, from Avalon Photography was present, snapping away in her professional capacity.

Awaiting the bride and Groom – what a setting!
Congratulations to a lovely couple.
A smooth, uneventful run to St Mawes was reported by Chauffeur Brett, with Lulu causing her usual stir as she flirted with onlookers en-route – particularly when ‘up close’ on the King Harry Ferry.
Safely on the ‘Roseland’, her agenda consisted of two vitally important pick-ups, both from the bridal boudoir in beautiful downtown St Mawes in time for a 12.30pm kick-off up at the castle.
First honours went to Joanne’s mum Wendy and her grandparents Derek and Jean along.
Joining Joanne and her proud dad Tim, on the second and final chug to castle were bridesmaids Gemma and Sarah.
Everything went according to plan with the bridal party arriving on schedule, a few minutes before the allotted time. A customary necessity for civil weddings so the bride can have an all-important ‘tete-a-tete’ with the Registrar.
With post-nuptial activities being ‘castle centric’, today’s outing for Lulu was primarily geared to providing pre-ceremony VIP transport and entertainment.
So much so, rather than opting for an excursion to a local beauty spot or beach directly after the ceremony, the couple, along with their guests enjoyed Lulu’s company at the castle, washed down with a lovely bottle of bubbly – buoyed on by Chauffeur Brett, of course!
A truly beautiful occasion, lovely company and awe-inspiring vistas – thank you Mr. and Mrs. Meek for involving us in your special day.
Congratulations and very best wishes x.
