Autumn is a season that evokes the rich colours of the harvest and a glorious flush of changing leaves on the trees. Rich cinnamon, yellow, burgundy, gold, rusty reds, creamy ivories and aubergine hues create a wonderful natural palette for an autumn wedding.

Crisp, cooler days lend themselves to sumptuous warm fabrics like velvet, heavy satin, brocade and rich embroidery allowing you to make the most of luxurious dresses for you and your bridesmaids. Shrugs and stoles will not only keep you cosy but also accessorise your wedding outfits.

Wedding flowers and decorations can be used to enhance the autumnal feel. Why not experiment with garlands of greenery accentuated with berries hung on walls or draped around pillars and dried flower petals in baskets or bowls, or simply scattered over table tops? You could even use pumpkins as decorations and have unusual autumn favours and flavours, like toffee apples, to delight your guests!
