Autumnal Wedding Style

Working with natural greenery and a cosy relaxed style to create that perfect Autumn scene.

What makes an Autumnal look?

There are many ways to interpret an autumnal theme. Whether this is an American harvest style with pumpkins and grains or more English with a bit more greenery, it is important to utilise the beauty of nature during the later months of the year. With the nights drawing in sooner you need to make sure you consider lighting in your space so fairy lights are a must to accentuate your decor during those darker evenings. The colours of autumn should be used to highlight key features such as table centres and sourced autumn leaves are a cheap and easy way to add interest.  The natural colours of the leaves make a great backdrop to a classic tweed suit or an ethereal ivory wedding dress. 

Autumn wedding colours and patterns

These are all really provided by nature, you just need to follow suit. Autumn leaves provide some beautiful colours from greens, reds, oranges and browns. The patterns come from the colouration of the leaves, but more importantly you need to think about textures. Things like hessian and twine add to that natural rustic feel, think about the rough texture of bark or earthenware bottles or pots to enhance the beauty of natural foliage.
