The Weather

Gerald Hardage PhotographerIt doesn't matter where you live in the world, the weather will always play a major part in the day, even if  you live in 'sunny California' or changeable 'old England', your professional photographer will be able to cope and provide you with a great set of images.

If the weather is bad, then your photographer can take your wedding photographs indoors, with their experience they can do 'alter returns' which means them using the ambient lighting with (and sometimes without) flash lighting.

Your photographer may be using a tripod, as he knows that if the camera is supported he can take any picture under any lighting conditions on any occasion. This means any guests trying to take these groups may spoil the ones your photographer is taking if their flashes compete with his. Therefore it is sometimes asked by the photographer that he is given a little space by the guests so that he can work// There will be many opportunities for your guests to capture images for themselves later. After all the are there to the end, unless their party going gets a little to much!

It is a rarity however that there will not be a window of opportunity and that your photographer will be able to take some photographers outdoors. He or she take golf umbrellas with them and by holding these over the people concerned while the groups are being arranged and whipping them away at the last second they can usually get the groups. Guests are more than welcome to help hold umbrellas and be part of the activities. If it is cold you may have problems. If your wedding is in the winter it might be a good idea to choose dresses with long sleeves for your bridesmaids, particularly if they are young ones - in which case consider also having little shawls for them, these can also look very attractive on the photographs adding a little colour.

Wedding Trivia:RICE THROWING
Rice has been used as a symbol of fertility and as a wish for a "full pantry" in various parts of the world from ancient to modern times. In the past, rice was not the only thing thrown at the bride and groom as the left the wedding. Wheat, instead of rice, was thrown in France, figs and dates were thrown in Northern Africa, and a combination of coins, dried fruit, and candy was thrown in Italy. In some European countries eggs are thrown!Rice is not harmful to the birds that eat it, but an article in California professing this to be the case, has caused birdseed to replace rice at most weddings. Flower petals, confetti, baubles, and balloons are often used today instead of rice.
