Winter wedding photography can be wonderful. Winter brings some challenges – People don’t want to stay out in the cold for too long and it gets dark very early. Some wedding portraits have to be shot indoors or in the dark but it can mean we get some amazing early sunsets. In the summer a sunset can be at 9pm, long after the party started. In the winter that can happen at 4pm so we get some beautiful light. Low winter sun is gorgeous. The weather is unpredictable in the UK anyway so rain or overcast really isn’t the issue (overcast is never an issue). The trick is being able to adapt quickly to fast changing light and to be able to shoot in the dark. If I’m honest Autumn weddings are my favourite because we get the mix of light but the sun doesn’t set in the middle of the wedding but winter weddings, especially Christmas weddings can be magical.
Here are some of my favourite winter wedding images.
