Weather always plays a big factor for couples getting married. Every different weather scenario brings its own challenges for the guests and the photographer. Too sunny and all the wedding guests squint in the images, too windy and the veil goes everywhere, Too wet and no one goes anywhere! Most of us hope for nice weather and lets not mention the chance of rain! When it comes to winter weddings, it really is potluck. Fewer daylight hours and a much higher chance of rain or even snow! I know a lot of photographers don’t undertake winter weddings. Me, I love them. I love the rich colours, the dramatic backdrops and the challenge of using what little light and time there is.
Of course the majority of my weddings happen in summer but I do like shooting a winter wedding. Despite the inclimate weather, we normally get some time for outside photographs and even if it’s the middle of a storm, I always find a space inside to create some portraits in addition to all the reportage and natural images. Below is a small selection of images taken outside last winter. Hopefully this shows that despite not always getting the best weather, you will still get a range of outdoor images to add to your album.
