As they both work in theatre, it’s no surprise that Sarah-Jane and Stevie’s wedding was going to be all kinds of dramatic! Married in October 2019 at the grand Battle Abbey in Hastings, Sussex, Sarah-Jane wore not one but two gowns (in fact, she’d actually planned to don a third but ran out of time!) and entertained guests with magicians and Hollywood acceptance-worthy speeches; the best-man and groom being trained actors helped here!

With the surname of ‘Gather’, Luke and Louise couldn’t not be inspired by this for their September wedding, and so ‘The Gathering’ was born - a bringing together of all the people who mean the most to them. The venue was a no-brainer. Luke grew up around the corner from Elvaston Castle in Derby, and went for regular walks around the grounds. The couple live together nearby and walk their dogs there regularly, so it holds a special place for them.

Albatross & Mariner

Maxine and Josh wanted to include some traditional wedding elements in their day, in particular when it came to the ceremony, but they also wanted to ensure that it felt like them and reflected their own style. As the bride was on the liver transplant wait list for a long time and finally got her life-saving operation in October a few years ago, they also knew they wanted to get married around this time of year as it's such a special time for them.

Jess works for a fashion company and was inspired by one of the store’s props for her October wedding to Dustin. It was a beautiful dried flower arrangement, which as luck would have it, ended up in a sample sale after the season was over, so she snapped it up! They used it to build the altar decor for their ceremony. and from there, the muted pastel tones paired with copper metal inspired an ‘optimistic autumnal’ theme for the rest of the day.

Julz and Andy almost cancelled their wedding... until they discovered Rock n Roll Bride (!!) Planned in just six months, the couple wanted a day that played homage to the art deco styling of their venue and the season in which they said their 'I dos'. The bride told us, "The magazine pretty much saved me while I was wedding planning. I almost cancelled the wedding so I could grow my hair and lose weight. I couldn't find any brides at all that looked like me... until your mag came into my life so thank you!"

It's that perfect time of year where the temperatures have dropped slightly but it's not yet baltic outside, the colours of the trees are at their most beautiful and Pumpkin Spiced Lattes are a thing again (OK spoiler alert I actually think they're gross but many people don't agree with me!) But MOST OF ALL, I love the weddings that happen in Autumn. Especially when they're low key and full of all the feels.

Love Me Do

October 3, 2019

Amber and Daniel had a September wedding inspired by the New Moon. "We had a New Moon wedding", Amber said. "Originally we couldn’t nail down a date. I am really into the New Moon and the beginnings it brings and I kept being drawn to 9/9/2018, which happened to be the New Moon into Virgo (Dan's astrological sign). Once we chose it, Dan's parents told us that was his grandmother and grandfather's wedding date! It was meant to be!"

The Alnwick Treehouse is a one-of-a-kind venue in The Alnwick Garden, Northumberland. Built from sustainably sourced Canadian cedar, Scandinavian redwood and English and Scots pine, it sits high in the treetops in a copse of mature lime trees and looks as if it has been there forever. What a spectacular spot to say your 'I dos'! Liam and Jade knew it was the ideal place for their October 2018 wedding as soon as they saw it.

Steve and Justine’s wedding day was a full of surprises, for the couple and their guests. The whole groom's party had to spend the morning of the wedding moving everything inside as they were hit by a snowstorm - in October! Steve’s gift to Justine was two replica WWE tag team championship belts. Instead of traditional champagne for welcome drinks, they served coffee that was ground by the couple themselves. They announced their pregnancy during their speeches, and had a grime/rap artist as their evening entertainment!
