Rain on your wedding day doesn’t have to be the end of the world. It’s something that so many couples worry about and stress over- ourselves included. Having shot lots of weddings on days where it has rained, we knew ourselves that rain didn’t ruin anything. Even on the day of our own wedding, the weather forecast was completely wrong. But that didn’t stop us obsessively checking the forecast. On our wedding day it rained when it wasn’t supposed to and then we ended up with the most amazing sunset that evening. You can never trust it, so save yourself the stress and go with the flow.
Rain, storms, wind and snow.
Along similar lines, we’ve shot weddings where storms have been forecast and it’s been a perfect day. And others where it’s supposed to have been glorious sunshine, only for it to be a constant blanket of fine rain. In this post we have attached some wedding photos from days where it has rained. We have included a mix of couples portraits and some more natural, candid moments.
If you are prepared to overlook the rain, you can achieve some amazing images. It only takes a moment or two here or there. Some of our favourite images have come from weddings where it has rained. It’s also surprising how many of our couples hope for a little rain on the evening of their wedding, just so they can get a wet wedding photo! They always prove to be quite “wow” images, as most people don’t realise what is achievable in the rain!
It’s easier said than done to not worry about rain on your wedding day. As long as you’re prepared to go with it, you’ll still have a fantastic time! Some of our most memorable weddings, with the best atmospheres have been ones where it’s been wet all day.
On the plus side, bad weather forces everyone inside to socialise. So there’s lots of merriment, lots of mingling and sometimes lots of drinking too. This tends to lead to some pretty wild evening celebrations!
Every negative had a positive, and every cloud has a silver lining. So don’t be too disheartened if you do wake to find a gloomy morning on your wedding day. The chances are, you wont even notice most of the time!
