As autumn glistens all around us in an abundance of colour within the trees and hedgerows, it is met with cold crisp mornings and softening daylight. We start to think of the romance of snuggling up to our loved ones, surrounded by the softness of woolly blankets on the sofa, next to a roaring log fire.
If you’ve chosen to get married at this opulent time of year, when the harvest is plentiful, then your choice of A/W colours schemes are endless.
Take inspiration from your natural surroundings – the venue, the countryside around your venues and the time of year for your wedding décor. You’ll hopefully create a more organic and natural look which fits perfectly with this rich season.
Alternatively, you could go for one of this season’s trending colours – Dark Teal – a stunning colour that suits everyone and can add depth and warmth to your overall theme.
Another autumn classic is Copper – it’s a colour that works well as an accessory and is a show stopper within any colour scheme.
Or how about adding a bit of catwalk to you big day – Mustard is a stand out trend this season that again blends and accentuates and compliments everything from table settings to flower arrangements to bridesmaids dresses.
Carry your theme through to your stationary by using motifs of leaves, trees, apples or pine cones to give it a classic woodland feel. For a more subtle look, choose natural materials and details like brown Kraft paper, twine and hessian for a rustic look.
When it comes to dressing your bridesmaids, you have all the beautiful classic autumn tones to choose from. Dresses in rich, warm colours like saffron red, burnt orange, blackcurrant purple or moss green. For a lighter and more neutral palette choose from creams and golds which look stunning too.
If you choose to get married in mid to late autumn then we’d recommend you choose dresses in heavier materials to stop you girls catching a chill!
An autumn wedding will also influence your choice of wedding shoe, so you’ll be considering something with more substance which will keep your toes feeling and looking wonderful all day long. For inspiration look no further, start to browse for your stunning autumn wedding shoes now.

Finally, don’t forget that beautiful autumnal wedding flowers are easy to create. Classic blooms like roses, gerbera and dahlias in reds, oranges and yellows, and compliment with woodland touches like acorns and oak leaves. For that extra twist, we love to see fruit and berries in autumn wedding bouquets – try blackberries, rosehips or crab apples for that rustic twist.
