If it rains...

... well the first thing to say is, it won't be the first rainy wedding I have photographed !!!

Over the last 20 years, you can be assured I have covered weddings in virtually every weather condition you can imagine - rain, hailstones, hurricane winds, 3 feet of snow, and 80+ degree heat.

Still enjoying your wedding day if it rains, is pretty much a 'state of mind' and a bit of planning. From my point of view, everything just continues as normal. I am waterproof and so is my camera, so a bit of rain doesn't bother me, and as long as the bride & groom are happy, we just get on with it.

The image below is a good example of a bit of planning, the entrance of the church had a selection of white umbrellas for the wedding party to use, just in case.

The image below was taken in 2008 at the fabulous Fountains Abbey in North Yorkshire. It was one of those summer days when it couldn't decide whether to sunshine or rain - so it did both. The couple had gone for walk inside the Vault due to to rain outside, when all of a sudden the sun came out creating this wonderful silhouetted image, the kiss was an unexpected bonus. Without the rain, this image would never have happened.

And the image below shows the happiness rain or shine !!!

If you are looking for a documentary wedding photographer who is just as happy in the rain, then please get in touch.
