Planning a wedding is a huge responsibility for any bride and groom to be but one thing that is out of everyone’s control is Mother Nature and the weather. On my own wedding day we had ice, snow, sleet and brilliant sunshine and i got wed in January so mostly what we expected the biggest worry was would we even make it to the Registry Office. The Fab peeps at Monsoon have created a weather forecast to help plan your big day. Using official Met Office rainfall data, we’ve looked back and analysed 86 years’ worth of statistics to establish which days have historically been the driest and which days have been a washout.
According to the calculator April despite being famed for April showers is in fact the driest month of the year with just 2.29mm of rainfall, the 15th April comes up trumps as the driest day of they year.
I have a wedding to photograph in September and was as always preparing for all eventualities but the calculator states 39.08 percent chance of rain that day. So I will be prepared and feedback my findings. You can of course check the calculator if you date has already passed and let me know how wet or dry your big day was.
