Rain needn't ruin your wedding photos

No matter how much planning goes into a wedding, the one thing that no bride can control is the weather.

If you wake up to rain on you wedding day, don’t panic, it’s supposedly good luck and, believe it or not, it’s the perfect opportunity for some stunning wedding photos.

No matter what, a little rain needn’t ruin your day and, with a little imagination and, perhaps, an umbrella, you may end up with results like those below.

1. Grab a pair of Wellies to prevent your shoes from getting ruined. Pick the right colours and it will make for some oh-so-sweet photos.

2. If the extended forecast calls for rain, gifting your bridesmaids with some Wellies can help keep them dry and comfortable, too! Plus, it makes for some cute photographs.

3. Wellington boots aren’t the only rain accessory that can be used as props for some beautiful rain-inspired photos. Umbrellas can add a serious dash of romance.

4. While coloured umbrellas provide some mystery, clear umbrellas can catch those sweet private moments.

6. Embrace the rain. Unless there is thunder and lightning, try to let your wedding photos go ahead as you had planned – and use the weather to your advantage.

8. Get your guests involved! They can either help keep you dry during the ceremony or, if you don’t mind getting wet, guests can frame you with their love – and umbrellas.
