Rain didn't stop the wedding
The French weather can sometimes catch out the wedding planner and wedding photographer and force a quick change to the plans. That said the weather forecasts do seem accurate in France so if it says it will rain it invariably will but we all hope it won't. One of my favourite wedding images is below. It records one of those moments when the plan had to change.
The wedding was taking place at at the Luxury Weddings France venue at Bellevue, Birac in the Charente department of France. Rain was forecast but the day was sunny. The forecast said a storm would arrive at 3pm just as the ceremony was starting so the decision was made to bring the ceremony forward 30 minutes. Everyone rushed around and the ceremony started and was almost finished when at 3pm the black clouds arrived and with it a rain storm. The venue cleverly utilised the sun parasols to provide shelter to the guests and everyone made their way to the barn. This photograph shows the bride and groom being rescued from the ceremony with the best man holding the parasol and chief bridesmaid helping with the brides dress. From a photography point of view the remainder of the day was very stop start as it involved grabbing outdoor images in between the down pours. It was in the end a fantastic day, everyone enjoyed it and we captured all the photographs we planned to, it just needed patience.
