The leaves are slowly changing colour, there’s a chill in the air and the nights are gradually getting cosier… Autumn is here! From cosy candlelight and roaring fires to mugs of hot chocolate drenched in marshmallows, we adore everything about Autumn – especially when it comes to weddings! If you fancy the thought of an Autumn affair, we’ve bringing you the ultimate boho-romance vibes…
Let the romance loose with your aisle style! Rock a gown with layers upon layers of tulle, a jaw-dropping veil and of course, a statement berry lip. You could even don a gorgeous cranberry-coloured flower crown, or perhaps you may want to wrap up warm with a faux fur shrug or knitted shawl. Give your bouquet a dash of drama by tying long flowing ribbons around the stems – we suggest opting for jewel tones such as wine red, burnt orange and even mustard yellow. Add a touch of sparkle to your bridal look with a twinkling golden hair vine – the intricate details can reflect the ever-changing colour of the leaves.
Grazing tables are stealing the wedding spotlight and this is one trend we can definitely get on board with! Treat your guests to an absolute feast for your wedding breakfast and give your grazing table an Autumnal vibe. Heart-warming pies, fresh breads, cured meats, delectable spreads and oodles of fruits – you’ll need plenty! This is a fabulous choice if you’re both foodies at heart.
If you’ve got your heart set on an outdoor ceremony, it’s still possible in Autumn! A wooden archway adorned with season blooms will look stunning in the Autumn sunshine. Why not offer your guests rustic wooden crates full of cosy blankets to wrap up in just in case it does get chilly. As the evening draws in, make the most of the outdoor space your venue has to offer by spoiling your guests with marshmallows and s’mores over fire pits. You could even crack out the wedding sparklers, which make lovely favours for your guests to enjoy!Rustic Vibes
Give your Autumn wedding a rustic vibe by using wooden signage throughout your details and décor. You could drape your favourite seasonal flowers over a wooden sign to welcome your guests to your wedding day, opt for wooden trestle tables for your reception or even use wooden tree slices as a cake stand, charger plates or as mini escort cards.
Autumn is a gorgeous time of year, so embrace it! Scope out some of your favourite areas at your venue with your photographer so you can make the most of the photo opportunities. Imagine having a canopy of trees dripping with red and orange leaves as the backdrop to your couple portraits. Don’t forget, golden hour will be earlier than usual so make sure you head outdoors to capture the moment!
