Gone are the days when brides and grooms booked years in advance to secure a much-coveted Saturday in the lighter months of June, July and August. A run of Indian summers (where October had glorious sunshine and it was chucking it down all July) – not to mention the bargains available in traditionally off-season periods – has resulted in a flurry of invitations hitting doormats for autumn weddings.
Gardens might not be in full bloom, but the lavish tones on the falling leaves are equally as eye-catching. Create a rustic mood by replicating what’s happening outside in your colour palette and use natural touches like leaves, branches, apples, acorns and wheat in floral arrangements, centrepieces and stationery. It’s not hard to fall in love with this time of year!
