I first met Meeka after receiving a phone call from her father to say I had been recommended to him By Tom Orde-Powlett the owner of Bolton Castle. Meeka is the youngest of their 5 children to be married and having had such bad experiences with wedding photographers taking over the wedding she explained how she wanted something very much more relaxed.
I started my day at The Blue Lion in East Witton where Pip was having an ushers lunch, before going to Meeka's parent's house for some preparation pictures.
Meeka is wearing a beautiful dress from Carlton Couture Bridal.
Calming the nerves by having a relaxed lunch with ushers and best man, such a great idea !
Then it was off to Meeka's parent's house where her sister was doing her make-up
Gorgeous dress from Carlton Couture Bridal
Mum Charlotte puts hand picked flowers in Meeka's hair
Family dog Otto keeps an eye on the proceedings !
