It doesn't matter where you live in the world, the weather will always play a major part in the day, even if you live in 'sunny California' or changeable 'old England', your professional photographer will be able to cope and provide you with a great set of images.
If the weather is bad, then your photographer can take your wedding photographs indoors, with their experience they can do 'alter returns' which means them using the ambient lighting with (and sometimes without) flash lighting.
Your photographer may be using a tripod, as he knows that if the camera is supported he can take any picture under any lighting conditions on any occasion. This means any guests trying to take these groups may spoil the ones your photographer is taking if their flashes compete with his. Therefore it is sometimes asked by the photographer that he is given a little space by the guests so that he can work// There will be many opportunities for your guests to capture images for themselves later. After all the are there to the end, unless their party going gets a little to much!
It is a rarity however that there will not be a window of
opportunity and that your photographer will be able to take some
photographers outdoors. He or she take golf umbrellas with them and by
holding these over the people concerned while the groups are being arranged
and whipping them away at the last second they can usually get the groups.
Guests are more than welcome to help hold umbrellas and be part of the
activities. If it is cold you may have problems. If your wedding is in the
winter it might be a good idea to choose dresses with long sleeves for your
bridesmaids, particularly if they are young ones - in which case consider
also having little shawls for them, these can also look very attractive on
the photographs adding a little colour.

Wedding Trivia:WEDDING AS A TERM
Although some brides were kidnapped, marriage by purchase was the preferred method of obtaining a wife. The "bride price" could be land, social status, political alliances, or cash. The Anglo-Saxon word "wed" meant that the groom would vow to marry the woman, but it also referred to the bride price (money or barter) to be paid by the groom to the bride's father. The root of the word "wedding" literally means to gamble or wager!
