Quite understandably, a top concern for English weddings is the weather. Even in the summer months a shower is likely, and I suspect most couples have an eagle eye on the long range weather forecast in the month before their wedding day. I’ve heard showers referred to by one Lake District wedding photographer as ‘liquid sunshine’ – and I guess positivity is one approach to the prospect of rain on a wedding day!
The other, which you may not have heard of before today, is to hang a teru teru bozu doll outside your window on the wedding day. They’re known as weather dolls and you can either make one, like Haruna’s mum did, or buy them on Etsy.com! So on Paul and Haruna’s wedding day, this little guy made the rain go away and they had a beautiful English wedding at Yaxley Hall.
I must say thank you to wedding photographer Jessica Roberts for submitting such a quintessentially English wedding for the blog today. I do hope you love it! My congratulations to the gorgeous couple Haruna and Paul, and thank you so much for sharing the details of your day with us all.
