The reputation of Scotland's weather is not the best! So every couple ultimately asked me before the wedding this question:
Well, we do it anyway! In all the weddings I have photographed over the years, I have only had a handful of weddings where it literally poured down, and we still ventured outside (in most of them) and took stunning wedding photographs!
Here's how I am prepared for the rain situation:
Ruth and Tom live in London and their wedding is later this year in Edinburgh. They were only in Edinburgh for a few days to do the final preparations before their wedding. We met in a cafe and I wrote down all the final wedding details, when everything takes place, who will be there and what the general plans are for the day. We then ventured out into the rain and heavy winds and spend about half an hour taking photographs around the Royal Mile. Especially Tom was a little bit apprehensive before having his photo taken. But within a couple of hours I had a message from the couple saying they both really enjoyed themselves and Tom no longer feels apprehensive about having his photo taken on the wedding day.
