Guarantee a rainless wedding day with cloud bursting technology

French travel company, Oliver's Travels, can promise brides and grooms-to-be a rainless wedding day and bright blue skies with its cloud bursting services.

While you can plan every last painstakingly little detail of your wedding day down to the colour of the confetti, there’s one thing you can’t control, the weather. That is, until now.

Oliver’s Travel, a luxury travel guide company, is offering couples the chance to hire its Perfect Day service to burst any stray clouds, promising zero chance of rain and guaranteeing blue skies on your wedding day.

The Perfect Day Service will see a team of specialised meteorologists fly a light aircraft above any clouds, sprinkling them with silver iodide causing the clouds to burst and vanish in time for the big day.

This cloud bursting technique has previously been used in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, by Paul McCartney at a gig in 2003, and even at Prince William and Kate’s royal wedding in 2012.

Oliver Bell, co-founder of Oliver’s Travels, said: ‘We pride ourselves on our quirky approach, and are thrilled to be able to offer such an unusual, unique service to our customers, to ensure their wedding is the talk of the town.’

While it may sound too good to be true, couples will have to start saving for a rainy day, quite literally, if they want to be the ultimate control freaks, as the service starts from £100,000.

This service is currently available at luxury venues in France, but if it takes off, there are plans to bring it to the UK, so keep a weather eye on the horizon.
