- The Independent ran a short feature on the piece, noting how we can actually guarantee success as long as we’re not faced with something like a hurricane.
- The Telegraph ran a similar piece, saying:
A company is promising it can stop rain ruining couples’ wedding days by offering a £100,000 cloud-bursting service. While they may be able to meticulously plan every aspect of the big day, one thing that couples famously cannot control is the weather.
- Elle also ran a piece on it, and included a cheeky dig at the Royals while they were at it:
Back in 2011 when Kate Middleton and Prince William got married, the two were blessed with not a single drop of rain on their wedding day. Turns out this wasn’t because of Mother Nature, but technology that you can now buy, The Telegraph reports.
- Women’s Health covered the story too, asking their readers how much they’d be willing to pay for a rain-free wedding.
- Somewhat oddly, Yahoo decided to cover it in their finance section, possibly because of the price tag. We thought it was more suited to the lifestyle pages, but still…
- Business Insider UK also ran a story and gave us a brief run-down on how the service works:
To guarantee a sunny wedding day, the company employs a team of expert meteorologists and pilots to fly aircrafts [sic] above the clouds to ‘seed’ them with silver iodide — which causes the rain clouds to burst and disappear. The technique is a form of weather modification called ‘cloud seeding,’ which was developed in the late 1940s, according to Oliver’s Travels.
- Blog Lovin also briefly talked about the service.
- We also got a mention from US news giant, CNN.
A UK-based travel company is now offering couples a guaranteed “perfect wedding day,” sold as a rain-free destination wedding package. The company, Oliver’s Travels, requires six weeks to plan the event and charges around $150,000 for a sunny day.
