I LOVE it when I see a rainy wedding! This post is inspired by Hannah Hall’s brilliant tips for rainy weddings
My home is Cumbria, just on the edge of the Lake District. We’re famous for our amazing scenery, our mountains and lakes… so while a UK destination wedding is my idea of perfect, there’s a real risk of liquid sunshine.
I see literally thousands of wedding photos every year. It’s the best thing about my job at English Wedding! And here’s the surprising bit: I love rainy wedding photos more than any others.
Rain on your wedding day will always mean you have the best stories to tell, and a collection of very memorable moments of your day. I love today’s real wedding story, which tells the tale of one of our favourite wedding bands, booked to play two sets on an English summer’s day for an outdoor wedding. It’s about near-disaster, sheer professionalism, and that famous ‘the show must go on’ attitude… Grab a cuppa and enjoy the ride! Oh, and do spare a thought for your musicians (and their gear) if you’re having an outdoor ceremony!
My little blogging desk, as you may know, is on the edge of the Lake District. We do get sunshine, but more often we have a variety we call ‘liquid sunshine‘, and we’ve kind of learned to love a misty, drippy or downright sodden day’s adventure in the fells. So when I read that Cornwall’s loveliest wedding venue Launcells Barton had written about rain on your wedding day, I smiled. Turns out, for what sounds like a relatively tropical place to me, these Cornish wedding pros have some pretty amazing ideas for rainy wedding days! I asked if we could share their advice, and they very kindly said yes. So here are our top tips, just in case it rains on your wedding day!
