Weddings and pre wedding photographs during the height of the rain season in Bali are somewhat risky business. But that was not to deter Toby & Gilbert. Come rain, come sunshine they were ready for it. To mitigate the risk of rain spoiling it all they decided to have a pre wedding session 3 days before the wedding. And it turned out to be a prudent move to do so. On the day of the pre wedding photos the weather was so-so. Which turned out to be a blessing in disguise because of the soft light that the over casted sky on that day provided. In the end everyone was happy that we had at least the pre wedding photos under wraps.
On the wedding day they had planned to do the ceremony at 17.00 h. I advised them to set the ceremony one hour earlier. Why ? Because the chance of rain was very high for that day. So my idea was that if it would rain at 16.00 h they could wait for the rain to stop and then still do the wedding ceremony. And this strategy paid off. When I arrived at 15.00 h there were huge rain clouds in the sky. Rain was an inevitability! And it was decided to proceed with the wedding ceremony as planned. A wise decision! Towards the end of the ceremony it started to rain heavily. But that was not to spoil this lovely wedding. Only the signing had to be done under a roof. We continued with the group and family photographs.
And then best part was to come. Because of the ongoing rain we were unable to shoot any photos outdoors. At first it appeared to be a bit of a problem where to do the photographs… But I love challenges and we did all the photos inside the hotel. I am completely thrilled with the results. I am very glad that I was confronted with this challenge.
