Crumbs, the clocks go back and suddenly it’s freezing.
I was up in the Northlands this weekend and my word, brr.
We stopped at the in-laws and I have to say whilst snow is still rather exciting, the idea of skiing from the North-East to Edinburgh was a little scary. Luckily, one of my big brothers, Grumpole, has a Land Rover. Huzzah! Indeed it seemed as soon as we were beyond Newcastle, the snow had disappeared. We had one of those delicious days in Edinburgh where the sky was blue and the sun was shining. It was delightful.
Yet, the whole fear of snow gave me an idea.
Our wedding was full of snow and hideous weather.
I present exhibit a.
Admittedly you can’t see the snow but you can see it was rather chilly. We both look increasingly blue in our photos! Bean was lucky to be wearing a vest and tweed which is meant to keep you warm. I was in silk. Not so warm!
See, exhibit b, much snow.
So I was thinking about adverse weather conditions and how I might be able to add another level of planning help for you winter brides out there. (And may be a few words of wisdom about sunshine too!).
There is more to think about that just the snow. It has an impact upon everything going on in the run up to and after your wedding.
Be prepared just doesn’t seem to cut it. Watch this space for actual practical advice and perhaps a few thoughts that you may not have considered.
Oh those wellies were lifesavers. Sure they weren’t Le Chameau but Hunter wellingtons saved my toes for my wedding and I am forever grateful!
