Autumnal Wedding with a Woodland Fairy Bride

Oh man, do we have the most perfect autumnal wedding to share with you today. Kirsty and Matt were married on October 28th, 2016 (happy anniversary for tomorrow guys!) at St John’s Church which is located on Thorsby Estate in Sherwood Forest.

Would you get a good eyeful of Kristy’s dress? Yes, that is a trail of faux foliage down the back of her skirt! She had it made for her by Eternally Yours and her brief was to look like a woodland fairy for the day.

“Autumn is our favourite time of year”, began the bride, “we love the colour changing leaves, campfires, apple cider and pumpkins (not forgetting Halloween!). Being surrounded by woodland and nature is where we feel most happiest and comfortable.”

“As people who are uncomfortable being the centre of attention and are both naturally shy, it was paramount that the people who surrounded us were the people who we felt most relaxed around. The ceremony was only attended by close family and friends. A magical moment occurred when we entered the church, one that can’t be explained. An inner peace enclosed us and a confidence materialised that we had never had before. Our vows were made with a clear voice and our heads were held high throughout.  Our rings we wear with pride are from Matt’s late father and my late grandmother, the only explanation we can give is that they were by our side.”

Moody Kate Spade Inspired Wedding

They met in 2012 and after chasing her for 6 months, Abel finally convinced Kayde to go out with him! Five years later they were planning their October wedding. With the time of year they got married they wanted their wedding to have a dark, slightly gothic vibe, but nothing too scary. So they complimented this idea with pops of colour (very Kate Spade) and comic book details for the groom!

“I would describe our wedding as a ‘Dark Kate Spade'”, said the bride. ” I basically took all our home decor and brought it to the wedding. My husband wanted something comic book related so I found wedding comic book covers to use as table numbers.”

Autumnal ‘Til Death Do Us Part’ Themed Wedding

Morgan and Stu both love autumn so they knew they wanted to incorporate autumnal colours and flowers in their wedding. Morgan also LOVES Halloween so they decided their theme should be ‘ Til Death Do Us Part’.

“I LOVE HALLOWEEN!” began Morgan, “What makes Stu such a special person is that, yes he does like Halloween, but he knows how much I love it and he lets me go with it! He didn’t want our wedding decor to be too Halloween party with blood and guts but just to stick true to the ‘Til Death’ theme.”

“We just tried to make everything about us. As selfish as that might sound, we wanted to celebrate us publicly (and legally) joining our lives forever. We didn’t try to think about if something was considered traditional or alternative. We felt pretty strongly that we would not be married in a church by a priest or pastor because neither one of us is religious. We picked our own readings for the ceremony, our own ‘I do’s’ (which came from a line from the movie, Moulin Rouge) and our own vows. Despite my feminist views, my dad walked me down the aisle but it was more about having him a part of our day. My wedding dress was mostly black and my ring is a black pearl with two skulls on either side. Oh and I had a Man of Honour instead of a Maid of Honour!”

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.”
