Come Rain or Shine at Shilstone

Whatever the weather, your wedding day will be spectacular and nothing, in theory, can rain on your parade! But, we always need to be prepared for the great British weather! The weather forecast apps on your phone become your best friend leading up to the day of your wedding! Rain, however, should never ruin your day, in fact, rain on your wedding day is considered good luck! We’ve come up with a few ideas not to let the rain dampen your wedding day.

Wedding Attire

Ladies get your pretty bridal brollies at the ready; brollies come in various colours, styles and designs we particularly love the traditional white umbrella. Another gorgeous country look is the ever-fashionable English Wellington boots. Wearing wellies on your day can create fantastic photo opportunities, why stop at white when you can have any colour hidden under that beautiful wedding dress!

Careful Planning

For those planning an outdoor wedding ceremony always have a backup plan! Here at Shilstone, we have the flexibility on the day of your marriage to change your outdoor ceremony on our stunning grounds into the beautiful rustic ceremony barn! Whatever the weather here at Shilstone we are prepared for all weathers! We have many options available onsite from our beautiful house to the stunning gardens; we have a range of fabulous spaces inside and out to keep you dry. Our marquee is perfect for all weathers, and you have the sense of being outside with the marquee windows looking out onto the grounds but the luxury of being dry.

Coordinate Your Day

To ensure that your wedding runs without a hitch, having a wedding coordinator is a must! At Shilstone we are lucky enough to have our very own wedding coordinator who knows Shilstone like the back of her hand! Remember, photographers can also take amazing photos in the rain – ones that are particularly memorable!

Enjoy Every Moment

Whatever the weather, the important thing is to enjoy your day! A little rain should never be seen as a negative, focus on all of the positives: You’re getting married, you’re all together, and you’re about to start a beautiful new journey together! You might not be able to stop the rain from falling, but you’re able to stop it from ruining your special day!
