This Couple Didn’t Let a Hurricane Ruin Their Beautiful Wedding (See the Pics!)

Although rain is considered to be good luck on your wedding day, a hurricane definitely isn’t. When Katy and Richard Owen wed at the Wentworth Castle’s conservatory in the U.K. town of Barnsley, they weren’t expecting Hurricane Bertha to interrupt their wedding — but when it did, they handled it in the most lovely way.

The rain started leaking through the roof as they were saying their vows (that could barely be heard above the downpour) and the room started to flood, but the wet couple and their soaked guests simply all pitched in to turn their drenched tented reception into an even more memorable occasion.

“I look back on those photos now and I would not change a thing,” Katy told the Daily Mail. “Of course, we would always have remembered the day regardless of what happened — but the pictures and the weather and everything about it just means no-one will ever forget this day. It was perfect.”

In his blog, their wedding photographer Jon Dennis wrote, “I’m not really sure I have the words to correctly describe Katy and Richard’s Sheffield wedding. What started as a seemingly normal and lovely wedding, quickly turned into a wedding disaster, and then turned into probably one of the most special and memorable days I’ll ever be part of. Maybe next time when you think a wedding nightmare is the flowers being the wrong colour, or the weather being ‘too hot,’ or hair being not quite so perfect…remember these two and how they embrace a real wedding disaster. People make a wedding, not the weather, the flowers, the photos, the food. The people.”
