When bride-to-be, Shonna, said she didn’t mind if it rained on her wedding day I shrieked with excitement. I’m originally from Cairns where there’s torrential rain throughout the dry season. I just love rain. Most people think sunny weather is awesome for photos… but it actually sucks. At least a little bit.
While it’s nice to catch some golden rays, cloudy skies are where it’s at. They actually act as a giant diffuser, softening the light and helping to bring out the vibrance in colours.
The other great thing about rainy weddings is the opportunity to get creative. In fact, you’ve got no other choice. I always have numerous locations handy and just play it by ear on the day.
I guess what I’m getting at, is that you’re wedding’s going to be flipping awesome no matter what the weather brings. As long as all your lovie’s are there to share the fun.
Weather aside, Shonna and David’s wedding was a of lovely example of families getting together, celebrating and having fun. It was one big mash up of cultures. PNG, Tongan and Spanish.
I was particularly moved by the importance of children being present from begging to end. Their traditional dancing toward the end of the night was epic to say the least.
Anyway, enough chat. Look!
