As a Hunter Valley Wedding Photographer, I get asked about the possibility of rain on a wedding day quite often. The Hunter Valley area is stunning, surrounded by sweeping vistas and bush greenery and rustic sheds, which I think is great, however, there is a chance of rain on any given day of the year, so best to be prepared!
Stress… is a bad thing. Elements cannot be changed, sure it will dampen your day, but a wedding is about fun and happy moments. Try not to let anything out of your control ruin it for you. Think about your partner and the commitment you are making, it’s something so special! We will have a plan where to take you for photos, so don’t worry about that.
If it looks like rain on your wedding day, be sure to purchase a few clear umbrella’s. You get get these from Kmart or search online for wedding umbrella hire. There are a few company's who have a range of umbrellas for hire.
We recommend clear umbrellas.
Sure, your dress might get wet, the best thing you can do is make the most of it! Remember you haven’t got the power to change the weather.
If your ceremony location is outdoors, have a backup option. Especially if the rain is torrential. Most onsite venues do have backup options so be sure to check those out during your site visit.
The reason why we get married is to celebrate one’s love for another in front of our friends and family. Plus throwing in a big party to top it off. That’s way more important than rain.
Just remember one thing, everyone will still have fun, no matter what!
I’d love to add another positive to all of this… The light. Light on a rainy day is the most desired for any photographer.
