What a weekend. The middle of July and the kind of unpredictable weather you’d expect in November or April. The brides were very matter of fact about the possibility of having a rainy wedding - there is really nothing you can do about it - but I had to feel for them because if you plan a wedding in July you can think it’s a strong possibility that it might be dry, and even sunny!
What the weekend did do for me was keep me on my toes in being able to constantly adapt to the changing weather conditions - it was like a three day workshop in shooting weddings in Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. Rain, bright sunlight, dull and cloudy, showers and lots of gusty wind… and these conditions seemed to alternate every 30 minutes. But thankfully everything went smoothly on all the days and we didn’t miss a single shot, even if the timings and locations had to be in a constant state of flux.
Here are four seasons from a weekend in July.
