Gone are the days when summer was the only season seriously considered for weddings with the popularity of autumn and winter weddings having really taken off in recent years. With its crisp air and golden hue, autumn has a magical feeling all of its own.
If your autumn wedding is on the horizon and you’re looking for some last-minute inspiration or you’re at the start of your wedding planning journey, we’ve compiled some of the hottest tips to add colour and inspiration to your seasonal nuptials.
Warm colours such as reds, golds, oranges and yellows mixed with delicate white roses can be a gentle way to incorporate an autumnal theme for your wedding day. For those looking for a bolder seasonal bouquet, chrysanthemums, anemones and asters are all in season and grow in a variety of bright colours. Adding foliage to the arrangement will make the colours stand out even more and adds a natural autumnal look.
The floral arrangement can be extended to table and room decorations, so you and your guests can step into a true Autumn Wonderland, surrounded by greenery and glimmers of golds, reds, oranges or purples.
Have some fun with your bridesmaids’ dresses and introduce striking reds, deep purples or dark greens. A flash of gold will help to bring your theme to life and can also be incorporated into your bridesmaid’s bouquets.
For many brides, the current trend is to have a variety of colour for their brides and a pallet of orange could be the perfect way to introduce an autumn theme to your wedding day.
Every bride wants to have a unique wedding shoe.

Autumn is the time of year to indulge in hearty food and what better way to integrate the season into your wedding than through good, homely food. Big pan dishes such as paella with an autumn twist are a very popular alternative to traditional catering. Alongside the main meal, there’s a host of delicious seasonal delights, such as a cheese table with crackers and whisky, hot spiced apple juice or for a little bit of added nostalgia, a toffee apple treat table.
With an abundance of vibrant flowers and delicious seasonal tastes, autumn-inspired wedding cakes are beautiful… and tasty. To balance seasonal details with a timeless style, it’s best to select one or two autumn-inspired accents for your cake.
Incorporating berries, flowers and foliage is great for an elegant look, whilst decorating with gold-metallic provides a modern twist to your wedding theme.
From the beautiful low sunlight, to the golden leaves and vibrantly coloured flowers, we can’t help but feel inspired at this time of year… this wedding season definitely deserves the top spot!
