Autumn weddings are full of beautiful fall colours, intimacy and romance. Complimented by the atmospheric dark nights and chiller evenings. Making for some adorable additions such as fire pits, fireworks and sparklers! But what is it that makes Autumn the new must have season to get married? Is it the romantic ambience of reds, golds, oranges providing their own natural and rich backdrop? Or could it be because there is less chance of it being too hot? The crisp autumn days are the perfect temperature to keep your hair and makeup in place throughout the day.
Let’s explore some of the magical attributes that make an autumn wedding, the new popular wedding season.
Quite often, the autumn wedding is complimented by the silk/satin floor length bridesmaid dresses, or long sleeveless gowns accompanied by beautiful and elegant shawls – to keep your bridesmaids warm and cosy. Somewhat representing the need for a cosy pyjama day in amongst the snug fall weather.
Colours can range from an elegant brown or deep orange, representing the beauty of nature and seasonal colours – orange leaves and a romantic woodland vibe.
Opt for a rustic venue, like a stunning castle or maybe a stately manor house?
Maybe something surrounded by nature and woodlands, so you can embrace the natural red, brown and oranges.
Your photographer will be able to capture some beautiful golden hour imagery.
Autumn is the perfect time for root vegetables, such as; carrots, squash, pumpkin and sweet potato. Appease your guests with an entre of seasonal vegetables and roasted pork belly chunks, accompanied with a local apple sauce!
Why not opt for an elegant pumpkin soup? & a warm roast dinner to satisfy your guests!
The ultimate addition to ensure your guests embrace the autumn ambience, will be the smell of mulled wine in the air, with a delicate hint of hot cinnamon buns for the little ones.
Instant rusticity is wooden welcome signs and seating plans, make it your DIY project. Complimented beautifully by deep coloured bunting, burgundy table runners and Rustic log slices to hold your stunning centrepieces.
