We were flattered to be asked to contribute to Your Sussex Wedding Magazine's "Hot Topic" February/March issue where experts offer advice on creating the ultimate romantic wedding day. Having been hit with storm Ciara last week, and with March winds on their way, we would like to reiterate the advice we gave to this question....
March is significant to us and we’d like to choose this month to say our vows, but last year in particular the weather was awful. How would be get around that?
Don’t let the weather ruin your day! We photographed two weddings in 2019, with gale force winds, but neither let the extreme conditions affect the joy and fun of their days one iota. One of our brides lost her veil completely – the wind just took it and it flew into the grounds.
If you’re brave enough to face the elements, some fun shots can be had. You’ll always remember exactly how your day was. If the venue has a gazebo, you’re sorted. Good cover for the bride and groom is all that’s needed, and some wonderful photography can be captured making the use of flashlights. Alternatively, you can always stay in and use natural light coming through the windows for photographs.
Above all - have fun and embrace whatever comes your way!
