Rain. It’s such a British thing, we should probably have it on our country’s flag! But even though it’s such a quintessentially British thing, it’s still something we fear, especially for weddings! When we picture the perfect wedding, images of sun-drenched days come to mind, but 9/10 times that’s not the reality. Rain can strike at any time, day, season or country… it’s not just us you know! But believe me, rain doesn’t have to ruin your wedding day! Just take a look at Esme & James’s wonderful wedding that was enhanced by rain.
Esme & James began their day unconventionally with a coach trip from the Bride’s parents’ house in Sheffield to the Bakewell Town Hall and Registry Office. Home of THE most beautiful red doors! Everyone came aboard the coach apart from the Bride and her father, who decided to make an entrance at the ceremony. The party arrived in Bakewell with time to spare and chose to take shelter from the rain in the Wheatsheaf pub across the road. Pints and mulled wine were very welcome! The big event arrived, and it was simply elegant. Full of love, and it really did show in the photos! The festivities continued as we all made our way back onto the coach and over to the wedding breakfast at the Monsall Head Hotel & Pub. A place not only holding magnificent views but also family memories too. The rain continued, but Esme & James were determined to get photos in this special and sentimental surrounding.
My advice for the best wet-weather wedding, be prepared! Bring brollies, a marquee, rain macs, or whatever you need to keep sheltered. But the best and most important thing you need to bring is a positive spirit! Unfortunately, technology hasn’t yet been developed to control the weather, so until then just embrace it! It’s that simple! This is YOUR big day, so don’t let anything (weather or otherwise) get you down! Trust me, you’ll regret all the photos you could have got! Getting a little wet is 100% worth a lifetime of memories!
“She made everyone feel so relaxed which is just what we wanted. Isabelle got our preview photos to us so quickly and we were blown away with how wonderful they were. We would both recommend Isabelle as a wedding photographer – thank you for being a part of our special day!” Esme & James
This is a wedding day that I’m definitely not going to forget! It was such a wonderful day, and I think the weather made it even more special! Thank you again Esme & James for allowing me to capture this day for you… Isabelle xx
