Following on from last weeks post entitled “Is October the new June for Weddings, today I’m looking at November Weddings. This year I don’t have any November bookings but in previous years I’ve had up to three weddings in the month. There have been some beautiful Autumn days this November and the colours have been beautiful as always.
The weather for November Weddings is, as always, a very important factor. Again I went to myweather2.com (CLICK HERE) for some weather information
Temperature ~ In recent times the highest recorded temperature in November has been 17°C that’s 63°F, with the lowest recorded temperature -6°C, about 21°F.Generally the highs have been around 11°C
Rain ~ The average monthly amount of precipitation has been recorded at around 74 mm, that’s 3 inches. Throughout the month you can expect to see rain or drizzle falling on 19 days of the month.
Sunshine ~ For November expect the sun to shine for an average of 4 hours per day.
In conclusion, with weather like that, it’s probably fair to say that November Weddings are more likely to be focused on the indoor space. Log fires and mulled wine might be incorporated into a day of cozy celebrations.
The pictures in this post come from weddings at Rhinefield House, The Doubletree Hilton at Chilworth and New Place at Shirrell Heath which is now owned by Legacy Hotels. At each of these weddings the weather was kind enough to allow for some photos to be taken outside. As I said last time, the important thing is to make sure you plan for every eventuality, especially when it comes to your photography and getting the big group shots.
Fireworks, and especially sparklers, are definitely “in” for weddings at the moment and November is the month for fireworks with bonfire night.
For people who really love Autumn and the colours of the leaves turning, November is a wonderful month to get married, especially the first half before Christmas starts to take over – and talking of Christmas next weeks post will look at December weddings.
