What if it rains on my wedding day?
What if it rains on my wedding day? It is a common worry for almost all couples. Every bride and groom hope for good weather on their wedding day. Good news is that even though the rainy weather is something that you can’t control, you can still prepare for it and embrace.
How will rain affect my image gallery
Thankfully, rain doesn’t necessarily have to be a negative thing for the photos. First of all, it’s unlikely to rain all day. If you’re lucky, you will get the best of both with a mixture of sunny spells and showers. Sometimes we may even capture a wedding portrait with a rainbow in the backdrop. Secondly, rainy weather brings plenty of photo opportunities for documentary-style photos. We always keep our eyes on for candid moments, e.g. guests running for cover, umbrella flips etc.
What’s your approach to shooting a rainy wedding?
From the photography point of view, shooting a wedding on a rainy day isn’t much different from shooting on a sunny one. Some photos, like family portraits, might need to be taken indoors. Don’t hesitate to browse through the internet ask your wedding manager and photographer for help when thinking through your plan b before the wedding. The experienced professionals have most likely already been through a rainy wedding; therefore, they might be able to give you some useful tips.
We always encourage our couples to stash a pair of wellies/heel protectors and an umbrella in the wedding suite. We love dark heavy skies, moody mist and will be very kin to shoot even if it rains. Photos taken in the drizzle are very atmospheric and unique.
If you’d rather say indoors, we will look for alternative spots inside the venue.
Talking about the pictures is one thing but being able to see the actual wedding photos is another. We found our favourite rainy images, hope they will help you embrace whatever weather Mother Nature throws at you.
