The timing of the day doesn't always work for golden hour or sunset photography. I keep my eye on it though throughout the evening. I will always ask my couples first if they want to go out for 2 minutes to grab the photo.
Most of the time this is during speeches or the meal so planning an epic sunset photo can be difficult. If we miss the sunset then I opt for a striking night photo with the venue in the background.
In this case, weather was a factor and I knew I only had about a minute or so for this shot. It was very cold to be outside for any longer without a coat on.
