It’s no secret that Autumn is my favourite time of year. Bring out the knee high boots that have been hibernating at the back of your cupboard all year long, along with the cosy soft woolly jumpers and tweed jackets. Just thinking about it makes me feel all warm and cosy. And with the beautiful golden sunlight we tend to get in the UK now in September and October, Autumn is the perfect season for setting your wedding date. Not to mention you may have more luck getting a date booked at your favourite venue! And with the date booked, you can get on to styling your autumn wedding with our Autumn Wedding Inspiration post!
All the photos in this post are from this incredible photoshoot I was honoured to be a part of, shot by Bowtie & Belle Photography, and styled by Kate Cullen from the Fine Art Wedding Boutique. All of the suppliers (Victoria Millésime included) who participated in the photoshoot are also suppliers to the Fine Art Wedding Boutique – certainly worth a visit if you’re looking for beautiful and unique designs for your wedding.
Autumn Wedding Inspiration – three key elements
Autumn Wedding Inspiration – the Flowers
When you’re styling your Autumn wedding, there are three main things to look for. Firstly, and most obviously, are the flowers. Choose beautiful rich hues of red, warm pink and orange, and don’t forget gorgeous Autumn foliage. As Autumn is the season of harvest, gourds, apples and berries are also all beautiful for decorating your venue.
Autumn Wedding Inspiration – the Details
There are so many stunning details to include for your Autumn wedding. Warm amber glassware, alongside touches of nature like pumpkins, berries and Autumn foliage look stunning on your table.s
For your stationery, if you’re looking to add a really elegant touch, go for hand lettered invitations. Simple yet stunning, these are the ultimate in Fine Art style.
Autumn Wedding Inspiration – Your Style
For your wedding outfit for your Autumn Wedding, think beautiful soft laces, short or long sleeves, or even a beautifully soft wrap to cover your shoulders. For your accessories, choose a headpiece incorporating warm golds, rose golds or even a blend of the two like in our Arabella Comb featured in this photoshoot.
We hope you’ve been inspired by this photoshoot to style your own Autumn wedding – keep your eyes peeled as we have a few more Autumn wedding inspiration posts coming up this month!
