One From The Weekend: Kaitlin and Steve at Christ Church, Lavender Bay with the right kind of rain


It was one of those days; the kind when you're constantly looking up at the sky, checking Weatherzone and crossing your fingers. The day had started well, which means dry, and when Steve and his boys popped out for a morning coffee outside Customs House they were even able to break out the sunnies. But before you could say short black the heavens opened and we were breaking for cover. Thank goodness for weather sealed cameras.

From that moment we knew the weather for the day would be a lottery. But despite further showers during location photos at Lavender Bay and even when, at the end of the night, Kaitlin and Steve made their exit from the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron by water taxi, they always had smiles on their faces and nothing but love and warmth for all their guests.

That's exactly the attitude you want. Weddings aren't about the weather; they're much more than that. They're about the people, and when that realisation strikes it doesn't matter what rains down on you (although rose petals are preferable).
