“What time should my outdoor ceremony start?”
Having an outdoor wedding and not sure what time to start the ceremony? Want the sun to be perfect and have that soft evening glow for your ceremony and wedding photos after the ceremony?
"What time should my outdoor ceremony start if I want ideal sunlight?"
Generally for outdoor ceremonies in open sunlight or in an area beneath trees, later in the day is better around 5:00pm or later in the spring/summer, and around 4:00pm when the days are shorter. The sun will be less harsh, so less squinting, and the day will be cooler for your guests as well. A few clouds creating a bit of overcast will help the harshness by diffusing the light (which photographers LOVE), so no worries if there are a few clouds!
