Wow, what a difference it makes when the sun shines! It’s been scorching for the past two weekends and it seems this weekend will be no different. It has been so difference between last year, where the majority of couples had their confetti thrown inside, and this year, where I have already captured three outdoor weddings.
I love it when a couple can get married outside, especially in some of the scenic venues around Warwickshire and the West Midlands There is nothing better than having your guests enjoying the sunshine as they say their vows – so much better than having them staring out of the window longingly and checking their watches like a schoolchild waiting for Break time. Last week I videoed a wedding at the Ardencote Manor Hotel just outside Warwick. They have a purpose built island for outdoor weddings and it was stunning, surrounded by water; what an amazing setting for a wedding.
This spate of sunshine has, however, caused me something of a problem too: I go on holiday next week and I am dreading peeling off my clothes to get on the sun lounger. You see, I have acquired quite a tan over the past few weeks, but sadly I have been getting this tan whilst in my suit so the tan is only above neck level! I will therefore be walking round looking like a safety match for the first few days which is not really a good look. If there are any inventors out there, I definitely think there is a market for the tan through suit – anyone who has see such a thing please send me a link.
The weather has also tested my cool bag to the limits – I normally pack sandwiches in my cool bag and return to my car to eat them during the wedding breakfast. However, this has not really worked for the past few weeks and my sandwiches have been a little soggy to say the least, so, if you’re getting married this weekend, spare a thought for your videographer (and photographer I guess) and put him aside some sandwiches for his lunch – don’t let him sweat in his car!
Have you found the perfect outdoor wedding venue? Has the recent warm weather made you wonder whether you can get married outside? Are you attending a wedding this weekend and praying it will be outside?
