Beautiful scenery, wide open spaces, award-winning venues… with all these on offer, why wouldn’t you want a Lake District wedding?
Well the one thing that puts many people off is that chance of rain. Yes, the Lake District is known for its higher chances of wetter weather, however, we’re here to prove why having rain on your wedding day will not dampen your spirits.
Rain makes the scenery even more dramatic.
First of all, it only adds drama to what is already a magnificent wedding backdrop. You may think that the beauty of the Lake District scenery couldn’t possibly get any more striking, but we beg to differ.
Dramatic weather will make your photos stand out! If your rainy wedding photos were lined up amidst a group of fine weather ones, we’re positive that yours will be noticed first. Who wants to just fit in with the rest?
Rain creates unique wedding photo opportunities.
Rainy weather will make your wedding photos even more unique and special to you. We understand that sunshine is great and it’s nice to have bright, sunny photos… but everyone wants this. What people remember is photos that are eye-catching which gauge attention – this is exactly what rain on your wedding day can do for you.
Damp floors also make for wonderful lighting reflections! Watch as your wedding photos are magically lit up from amazing flash reflections in the puddles on the floor. It adds so much extra detail to your portraits that would not have been there otherwise. Not to mention, it can give the airbrush effect!
In addition, rainy weather tends to make everything darker as the clouds cover the skies. This creates two excellent opportunities for your photos. Firstly, it puts even more focus on the couple getting married through exciting lighting opportunities. And secondly, the darkness further highlights the elegance of our hotels when they are all lit up, nicely showcasing your stunning wedding venue.
Rain makes indoor celebrations more atmospheric.
There’s nothing nicer than listening to the raindrops pitter-patter on the windows when you’re all snug inside. And the likelihood is that you will spend most of your wedding day inside anyway – especially when it comes to the wedding reception. Being able to watch the rain dance from out the windows while still admiring the picturesque scenery will only make the occasion even more intimate for you and your guests.
When many people plan their wedding day, they opt for a summer wedding in the hope of sunshine. But the truth is, even if it’s dry, your wedding day is more likely to be cloudy than sunny (unless we have another surprise heatwave!) As much as we love sunshine as much as the next person, we personally believe that your day will be more atmospheric if the heavens did open!
Only Lake District rain creates such beauty.
The fact of the matter is that Britain is known for soggy summers, so odds are, wherever you book your wedding whether it’s The Cotswolds, The Yorkshire Dales or even the Scottish Highlands there is always the possibility of rain! Therefore, by choosing the Lake District, at least if a downpour does occurs, you can witness the raindrops dancing atop of the nation’s most famous lakes.
Besides, it gives you the opportunity to accessorise with quirky umbrellas that will carry fond memories for the rest of your lives!
So if it does rain on your wedding day, don’t feel glum! Think of all the exciting opportunities and we promise you will smile all the way through it anyway.
