We should all be enjoying glorious long sunny days, as after all it is August, but the good old British Summer isn’t giving us quite the weather we’d all hoped for! And while many couples still pray for sunshine on their wedding day, the reality is that rain showers are just as likely to put in an appearance too.
And for all those couples who ask me “What will we do if it rains on our wedding day?!”, I tell them that no matter what happens, whether the sun shines or the heavens open, that they will still have without doubt one of the most amazing days of their lives, filled with laughter, happiness and precious never to be forgotten moments that they will treasure forever.
So if it rains on your big day – embrace it, and I promise you that your photos will still be just as incredible as you always imagined they would be! And for those all important portrait shots – a photograph of just the two of you in the rain can be seriously romantic.
If you really want to be prepared I suggest buying coordinated umbrellas for your wedding party in the colour and theme for your wedding – I love a great umbrella shot! Check with your venue too, to check that they have a few spare brollies for guests. For an outdoor rustic wedding venue, why not invest in multi-colour wellies too.
So if it does rain on your wedding day, just roll with it. And remember ‘you can’t have a rainbow, without a little rain’.
