We ask local photographer Tom McNally your questions: Image 1 Credit: www.weddingphotographylakedistrict.co.ukQ – My wife-to-be and I are getting married next December, and we’re worried about the weather ruining our photographs. Do you have any suggestions?

A – "Working primarily in soggy Cumbria, this is a question that comes up a lot with my clients. Try not to worry there are lots of ways to deal with inclement weather. What most people would consider a poor weather forecast can often result in fantastic photographs. The most dramatic light always comes before or after heavy rain showers. I would choose a mixed forecast over a bluebird sky every time.

"Be prepared and purchase wellies and colourful brollies.

"A carefree attitude goes a long way. Your wedding is only going to happen once, so don’t be afraid of getting the most out of the day.

"Be flexible with dates for your pre-wedding shoot. It rarely chucks down non-stop for an entire day, and there are often breaks in the rain that can be used for photographs.

"When choosing a photographer, ask what they would do if it rains. They should have several strategies up their sleeve to ensure quality pictures whatever the conditions.

"Wet weddings are often more sociable as people tend to gather together inside, often around the bar. Resulting in some great photo opportunities."
