How to capture stunning pictures whatever the weather

How to capture stunning pictures Credit: – We’re having a December wedding and are worried the weather might ruin our photographs. How can we capture stunning pictures, whatever the weather?

"Wet weather doesn’t have to ruin your day. There are usually breaks in the rain, so you can go outside to take some photographs. The lighting can make for some spectacular imagery since everything is glistening and saturated with colour. Grey skies and a break in the clouds can create dynamic natural backdrops, and where there’s rain, there are often rainbows too!

"Sheltered areas such as doorways, arches, and trees are good places if you want to remain drier and avoid harsh winds.

"If you’re feeling brave, it’s worth grabbing an umbrella and some wellies and embracing the elements!

"Wear a warm winter cape and other seasonal accessories.

"Large group photos might need a backup plan if the weather is particularly harsh, these can be taken in a marquee, a different building or in an indoor area. Be creative with the available space. Whatever the weather, it will be a wonderful part of your wedding story, so keep smiling and enjoy your special day!"
