This question will go through your head at some stage if you're planning a wedding. The weather is something you can't control but you can certainly make the most of what's handed to you on the day... So what happens with the photography when it rains on your wedding day? ... We go to Plan B. We pack umbrellas. We find a sheltered location. We wait in cars during downpours and race out as soon as it clears... We improvise. In short, we embrace it.
Olivia and Steven were wed in Auckland this summer. Usually in Auckland we can assume the weather will be changeable, though on this day, a storm rolled through and it rained for most of the day. Our plan B strategy was put in place and it meant our photography locations were altered a tad but we did embrace it. We made the most of the sheltered walkways and eaves that King's College (ceremony location) provided, and I stood under an umbrella, snapping away in the rain. The bridal party cars were utilised for shelter and pictorial value too. When the skies finally cleared, we dashed off to nearby Cornwall Park to maximise the time we had left before the reception. All in all, it was a beautifully memorable day. Just one more thing to add to your plan B list... Something warm for the ladies ; )
