Golden Autumnal Wedding with DIY Catering & Dried Flowers

Vicky and Colin were married in October and when they started to pull things together, realised they were being drawn to a lot of gold. So they went for a golden autumnal theme with a relaxed atmosphere. They wanted their day to be laid back, with hints of skulls and to had a river cruise alongside their welcome drinks… luckily the weather held out for them!

The day was held at The Granary in Suffolk. They wanted to keep their ceremony short and sweet so didn’t have any readings or all the usual formalities. “I walked down the aisle to Smashing Pumpkins and couldn’t have been more nervous,” began Vicky. “The whole thing is a bit of a blur to be honest! My nerves took over a bit and my Dad had to pull me back from practically running down the aisle. I’m not a fan of being up in front of everybody so just wanted to get on with the celebrations!”

Woodland Luxe Wedding in October

Emma and Ajay’s October wedding had a ‘Woodland Luxe’ theme. They wanted the day to feel cosy and for nature to be everywhere. They used Autumnal accents such as acorns, ferns and moss rather than flowers, and had stag and horns motifs used throughout.

“We were inspired by our mutual love of nature (particularly majestic countryside creatures such as owls and stags)”, said the bride, “but also high-end details and timeless beauty with a modern twist.”

“We love food and we know our friends and family do too so this was a big consideration for us. We also knew there would be a lot of people meeting for the first time, so to ensure the ice was fully broken when they all sat down to eat, everyone had to muck in with the platters which were served to the tables. We wanted the feeling of a big Sunday lunch you’d have with family and it worked a treat, everyone said they’d never eaten this way at a wedding before but loved the idea.”

Spooky Cemetery Themed Wedding on Halloween

As soon as they got engaged, Morgan and Sam decided that a Halloween wedding would be their absolute dream. They wanted to include the dark horror side and also the warm coloured, Autumnal side of Halloween. The wedding was held at Reynoldston Village Hall on October 31st.

The day began with an intimate, humanist ceremony. “Neither of us are religious and it was really important that we had a simple yet meaningful ceremony, with a dash of humour thrown in”, began the bride. “We wanted to trim out all of the fluff, so no songs or readings – just the two of us declaring our love for one another.”

“My mum walked me down the aisle to a song that Sam and I call ours, Tears for Fears, Head Over Heels. We wanted our vows to be unique to us and reflect the way we love each other, so we wrote them. We both cried the whole way through. We exchanged rings but incorporated the Pagan tradition of handfasting. It was really nice to include an old ritual and I spent quite a while studying the meaning behind each colour of ribbon and assigning it to who I thought that best represented.”

The Bride in the Red Cape

They met while on tour with Beyonce (she played keyboards, he was part of the pyrotechnics team ) so Theresa and Edward’s wedding was always going to be on the theatrical side! They were married in October and the bride wore a spectacular deep red cape with the dress that she helped design.

“The theme for our wedding was an elegant, fairytale world”, said Theresa. “We drew inspiration from many different sources which we found while travelling. Our tables were named after cities in which we have had wonderful experiences together.”

“Because Eddie is a special effects designer and operator, we had large handheld confetti poppers shoot confetti when we were first announced as Mr. and Mrs. Romack at the reception. We also had oversized sparklers held by our guests, in which we walked down as a send off at the end of the night. Since I am a singer, songwriter, and musician, it was important to me to have excellent music”

A Romantic Glass Chapel Ceremony

Chris and Patrick’s romantic wedding was very small. They had only a handful of guests, mostly family.

“The only inspiration I had was that I wanted the wedding to be just about us, our love and our family”, the bride said. “We wanted everything to be simple. This was actually our second wedding because we originally ran away and eloped in Vegas, just the two of us! We went off to Arkansas to get married in the woods, in the fall surroundings with just a few people who are the most important to us (including our kids) there.”

The ceremony was held inside a glass chapel. “The Thorncrown Chapel is set inside the woods and it was so beautiful with all the fall colours. We attend the Unity Church of Peace back home which I tend to describe as the best little hippie church around, we are very much all about peace and love! We found a local minister who worked for the local Unity Church and she performed a very touching and personal ceremony for us.”

Autumnal Wedding with Woodland Touches

They wanted their wedding to to reflect the time of year that they got married – November. So Emily and Andrew decided to have lots of autumnal touches at their wedding. They didn’t have a theme or grand plan other than than seasonal flowers and a few woodland thrown in!

“The first thing I bought before deciding on a venue, dress, or anything else, was the cake topper from Melabo Wed on Etsy as we both loved it”, said Emily. “This was the starting point for our inspiration! I think we surprised ourselves with how many traditional elements we included in our wedding day – however there were things which we knew we didn’t want. I didn’t have an engagement ring, we didn’t want a first dance, to throw the bouquet, or full 3-piece suits for the men. Andrew had always told his mum that he would get married wearing trainers, which he did!”

“We were both very apprehensive about the ceremony”, she continued. “Neither of us are keen on standing up in front of people, and I think my legs were shaking the whole time. To make us less nervous we asked Emma, our photographer, if she would take the photographs of the two of us together before the ceremony, and we had our bridal party photographs taken then too. This worked really well as it meant that we had more time with our guests following the ceremony and we got to see each other beforehand to steady our nerves. Emma was fantastic with us – despite the fact that we are both usually averse to having our photos taken she made us feel completely relaxed.”
