Wedding weather forecast

As we wrap up against the cold January chill many ‘soon to be wed’ couples are watching the weather updates very closely indeed. It can be a huge worry when you discover that the rainy English weather is forecast for your wedding day!

However rain can actually add a unique and beautiful element to your big day if you get inspired and be prepared. The more you organise for any weather situation come rain or shine, the happier you will be on the day!

Here is a guide of hints and tips…


Prepare to dodge the showers with a rain proof schedule: Have alternative photo locations both sheltered and in the open.

Have towels and umbrella racks available for guests to shake off and get dry. Umbrellas should be available in helpful places along the route, for the gentlemen to hold over the ladies.

If you want to go the extra mile for your guests in colder weather then you could provide hot drinks and warm canapes at the reception to boost the morale.


Wellies and Brollies

Whether your expecting a light drizzle or a heavy shower, umbrellas and wellington boots are a must-have seasonal wedding buy. There is an endless choice of these accessories on the market from feminine patterns wellies to intricate parasols.

Clear umbrellas are fantastic for photographs as they do not create any dark shadows in photographs and can be used to take shots outside even whilst it’s raining.

You could embrace the weather whilst having your photographs taken in matching wellingtons. If that’s not your thing, then you may want to hide your boots under your wedding gown when crossing wet grass or sand.

Get in the spirit

There are so many incredible photo opportunities that can happen in the rain, ushers lending an umbrella to the bridesmaids, the bride and groom romantically kissing in the rain. Instead of trying to avoiding natures elements get into the spirit of it and have fun getting wet!

Then afterwards you can enjoy cuddling up with your guests for a cosy evening.

Wet Weather Gadgets

It may be useful to ask your photographer to organise a test shoot in the rain to practice capturing you both looking natural in the rain. The following gadgets could be very useful on the day.

  • Camera Rain Cover- protect your camera when shooting during wet weather
  • Stiletto covers- Plastic wedges to pop on your high heels to stop you from sinking on soft surfaces
  • Water-resistant make up- Mascara and foundation that is water resistant will help to keep you looking gorgeous whether you have tear stained cheeks or you have been caught in.

I hope that this short guide helps you to stay positive and rock your wedding whatever the weather!
