Rainy wedding day
West Midlands wedding photographers
Hello! We are wedding photographers based in Hereford, West Midlands and we have photographed many rainy wedding days. And they were incredible! We love using rain in a creative way, it looks beautiful on wedding pictures. What do you think about a rainy day? Here’s one, have a look:
Don’t worry about rain!
Many brides worry too much about the possibility of their rainy wedding day. My advice is – please don’t worry. If it rains, it rains, there is nothing you can do so you might as well make the most out of this situation. Instead of checking the weather forecast every day and trying to predict what’s going to happen, prepare for the worst possibility. If it doesn’t rain you will be over the moon but if it rains – you will be ready.
How to prepare for a rainy wedding day?
Get your wellies and umbrellas ready
You might also think of some matching umbrellas for your bridesmaids. I really love the translucent ones – so perfect for the couple and so romantic!
Trust your photographer
There are some amazing techniques available to capture the beauty of the rain on your wedding day – you might end up with some truly beautiful images like the main image in this blog post, taken in the rain… at night!
Be flexible with time
Would you be willing to have a short photo shoot break during the reception? That cheesecake might wait twenty minutes, right? Sometimes the evening sky after the rainy day might be really beautiful – you just have to have this picture in the collection of your wedding images.
Think of an alternative location
If you’re thinking about the group pictures in front of the church – maybe having them in the church or a bit later at the venue could help to achieve better results?
Last but not least
Some people say: ”it can only rain for good luck on your wedding day”.
Embrace your rainy wedding day
Embrace it – don’t worry if it rains on your wedding day – it will still be the best day of your life! Just look at Sam & Matt’s wedding at Lyde Court – they had the rainiest wedding day we have ever experienced. They also had the most amazing double rainbow, so even the most rainy days can bring the best surprises. My advice is – have no expectations and just assume it’s going to rain. Because if it doesn’t – the good weather will be a bonus. If you want to see more dramatic skies on a wedding day, take a look at Kirsten & Rob’s wedding day at Oldwalls Gower in Wales.
