Rachael and Neil married in Mevagissey, Cornwall, in October of last year.
Rachael’s bridal preparations were captured beautifully by Andrea Pennington, who is Director of Photography for Dotty Magazine.
If you’re currently considering your wedding photography options, then I’d highly recommend that you try to ensure the bridal preparations are included in the wedding package that you opt for. Speaking from extensive experience, Andrea explains, “Bridal prep is my favourite part of the wedding day as it’s all about the details; friends, laughter, and the build up you get leading up to that first look at the altar.”
Andrea particularly enjoyed capturing these special moments as she has been friends with Rachael for many years, “After a long time not seeing Rachael and my other friends who were there with her, it was lovely to laugh together again.” Rachael had her closest friends and daughters with her, so it was also a key time for Andrea to get to know other important members of the wedding party.
Due to her ongoing and ever increasing commitments with Dotty Magazine, Andrea has (officially speaking), retired from shooting weddings. However, she will still consider quirky commissions, so it’s always worth dropping her a line. She also has five lovely weddings booked in for the rest of 2014 already, including the competition winners who won their wedding photography through Dotty Magazine!
