Rain !! The word that strikes fear into the heart of every bride ! And on this day at Helen and Bretts wedding at the fabulous Hogarths Hotel in Solihull it rained. A lot. All day!! So what can you do ? Well, very little apart from embrace the conditions forget doing any portraits outside unless loads of umbrellas are used , and use the conditions to try to create some unique images.
This first image pretty much summed up the day – it really did belt it down at one point – but rather than let the rain spoil the day we simply used the interiors of Hogarths Hotel ( the staff were wonderfully helpful ) and helen and Brett were determined to use the outdoor ceremony facility within the Hogarth Hotel gardens.
As Helens mum had spent quite a bit on the confetti petals we had to create something so we used the walkway outside the main function room – not ideal but on a day when the weather takes over, you just have to adapt the best you can.
Anyway heres some of my favourite shots from the day at Hogarths Hotel
