Happy Writers Wednesday!
The great British weather has not quite lived up to its name in recent years has it? The last two summers have been a wash out but we’ve seen some very warm spells in April and September/October time. Not being able to confidently predict the weather adds another level of stress to planning a summer wedding. All Bride and Grooms want to have a beautiful day so that their guests can mingle outside on our Library Terrace soaking up the sunshine and posing for stunning photographs at Gosfield Hall to remember their big day.
Luckily a little bit of rain doesn’t have to put a dampener on your photographs, there are plenty of ways to work around the rain and make sure it doesn’t have too much of an impact on your day.
Even if you are the most positive person in the world, it does no harm to plan for wet weather. Getting friends and family to collect as many umbrellas for you costs nothing extra and the different styles and colours can make for great photographs. If you wanted to be ultra coordinated you could get umbrellas in the same colours as the bridesmaid’s dresses. You could even go that bit further and personalise some wellingtons for you and your bridesmaids – this also makes for some great photographs!
Your photographer can always arrange a venue visit with you before the wedding day. This allows you to find the best places to take photographs and means that you are not wasting time on the day looking for places to pose. It also means that while you are there you can make a contingency plan should the rain fall and you need to take cover.
If your photographer has a creative eye then they should be able to spot the potential locations- sometimes it simply comes down to getting up close and personal.
So relax, if it rains, it rains, there’s always the chance you’ll be able to get outside at some point in the day and make a feature of the weather. If not, then you can make the most of our beautiful, elegant indoor locations.
And don’t forget- rain on your wedding day is good luck!
