Well the Summer in 2016 doesn’t appear to have fully arrived yet. So the big question all Brides out there will be thinking is… what happens if it rains on my big day?
The first thing to remember is that a drop of rain shouldn’t spoil any of your day. At Sheene Mill we do have a marquee to cover all your guests and you are covered in the pavilion of course. Also it is very unusual for a rain shower to last more than a few minutes at a time which means that it is possible to dodge the clouds with your timings.
To hire our marquee we always require 72 hours notice and charges apply. We believe that the marquee is a beautiful addition to a wedding and fits in well with the beauty of the venue. There are also other options you can consider for a wet wedding such as supplying your guests with wellies, white umbrellas and a mac – what a great photo opportunity!
Ultimately the registrar has the final say as to whether the ceremony can be conducted outdoors or not. Fortunately at Sheene Mill we have the ability to move your ceremony indoors with only a moments notice.
Finally, it is worth noting that a marquee could also be useful during very hot periods of Summer. It is essential to keep out of direct sunlight for long periods of time especially for the older members of your family.
