Of course there are some details, it’s still insurance.
The following guide explains what you should know about Weddie.

You do not have to make a claim. This insurance is triggered if 7.5 mm of rain (threshold) fall between 12:00 p.m. and 06:00 p.m. An extended insured weather period may be agreed upon during the ordering process.
Please note that the wedding insurance is no sunshine guarantee. Also little amounts of rain may be considered disturbing.
If all the criteria for the payment are fulfilled, the beneficiaries i.e. the bridal couple will receive the lump sum agreed upon for their free use. Payment will be made to the bride’s or groom’s bank account within 5 work days from disclosure of the bank details (only UK account).
Note: Payment will only be made to the policy holder if he/she is the bride or groom.
Who measures the amount of rain?
Athenium Analytics LLC are an independent company who provides access to historical and real-time global hourly data for 196 countries and all the oceans, to measure and report rainfall accumulations.
Athenium Analytics leverages 18 satellites in low-earth and geostationary orbits that generate precipitation data on a continuous basis. These satellites are operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Department of Defense (DoD) and several international partners. The resolutions of the satellite measurements vary, but all can be placed on a grid of 8×8 kilometers.
This 8x8km data is the most comprehensive and consistent in spatial resolution worldwide. While this satellite collection is especially valuable when no ground observation exists, consequential benefits remain even where ground stations are nearby.
Please note that the calculated values may differ from those of other weather services or physical stations. In terms of insurance payout, only the values calculated by Athenium Analytics LLC count.
How fast can a threshold of 7.5 mm of rain be reached?
- Normal rain has an intensity of approx. 1-1.5 mm/hour,
- moderate rain has an intensity of approx. 3.0 mm/hour,
- heavy rain approx. 5.0 mm/hour
- and downpour 5.0 mm/5 minutes.
- In case of a heavy thunderstorm, the amount of rain may rise to 20 mm/hour and more.
Such an amount of rain is usually accumulated as a consequence of continuous normal rainfall or short heavy rain showers but rather not as a consequence of drip or drizzle.
How will I get notified of whether the insurance will pay?
On the wedding day, you (i.e. the policy holder) will receive an e-mail containing information on the calculated amount of rain every hour in retrospect during the insured time period.
Within 2 working days after your wedding you will receive a report on the amount of rain and in the event of a claim you receive all information on the payment of the lump sum compensation.
How is the amount of rain measured?
To provide weather statistics the Gridded Data System Model is a model used by Athenium Analytics. Weather data can come from a point observation, such as a weather station, or from a grid, which is an 8km x 8km algorithmically-generated area that provides data representative of the entire grid area.
Gridded data is the first choice for verification because it has consistent coverage and is always available, where high-quality weather stations are not. Each event location is matched with a specific Athenium Analytics grid. Athenium Analytics extract hourly data for that particular grid that contains the event location.
In the event of missing or incomplete data, multiple data sources can be used. The result can be the utilization of a different dataset or the combination of different data sets. Data sources are never “blended” or averaged together to create new values.
