South American Inspired Autumnal NYC Wedding

As same sex marriage was not yet legal where they live in Australia, Scott and Carlos chose to have their destination wedding in New York, which for them, represents a multicultural, vibrant and positive city where millions of different people co-exist. Being in New York meant they were able to forget all their worries – how LGBTQ rights were about to be put out for debate in Australia and the furore that surrounded it, about going back to an unknown future in their home country of Venezuela that was/is falling apart, or the daily struggles and challenges in their everyday lives – and simply celebrate their love.

Their friends and family joined them for a holiday, which meant they were able to hold their wedding on a weekday, which helped considerably with costs. Although having a destination wedding has it’s drawbacks in not being able to visit venues, see suppliers, etc, coming into town a week before the wedding date meant that Carlos and Scott were able to have an amazing time doing all the prep at once! From food and cocktail tasting at their reception venue to picking up their flower order from The NYC Flower Market the morning of the wedding, it all added to the sense of celebration and help build excitement for their big day.

Autumnal Glamour Wedding Celebrating Artists & Taxidermy

Simone and Chris met at Teeside University studying art history, so it was only fitting that their wedding was a celebration of the creativity and skills of loads of different artists they knew and loved, including taxidermy centrepieces and a pigeon cake topper. Their November wedding oozed autumnal glamour – check it out below!

Simone was the epitome of Hollywood glamour in a gorgeous high-neck dress with intricate embellishment and beading from Phase Eight, and red buckled shoes from Zara. She had a bespoke headpiece made from Surf & Silver and wore Chris’ Nana’s fur stole to the ceremony and a bespoke painted leather jacket later in the day. Chris wore a checked suit from Marc Darcy, and boots from Grenson. They both had bespoke rings from Emma Hedley Jewellery.

Of the ceremony at Newcastle Civic Centre, Simone says: “We both tried to keep it as low-key as possible, and were glad for that on the day when we were nervous and stumbling over our words. I practically sprinted down the aisle to meet Chris – note to self, walk slower!”

Rustic Glam Autumn Wedding in Pennsylvania

It may be averaging 30 °C outside at the moment, but autumn is coming soon my friends! Don’t get me wrong, I adore the summer, but it’s around this time of year where I also begin to hanker after knitted sweaters, bonfires and all the white hot chocolate (with extra marshmallows please and thank you).

If you’ve been feeling the same then you’re going to love gazing longingly over Brittney and Trav’s Pennsylvania wedding. Using autumnal colours in their flowers and the bridal party attire, and even having fresh donuts made by grandma for dessert, there’s SO much to love in this early November wedding.

“Our theme was boho glam”, explained the bride. Our inspiration was wanting to reflect our very own personalities and styles. All of the details were us to a T! It all started with my stunning bouquet of flowers. We had the groomsmen in the most amazing burgundy coloured suits. It’s uncommon for the men to be the more extreme ones in their attire choices, but these guys went all out!”

The ceremony was officiated by Drena, a family friend. Brittany wrote the entire script herself, wanting to make it as personal as possible. “Our ceremony was not traditional at all. It was short and sweet and to the point. It expressed our love perfectly.”

Autumnal Wedding with a Hint of Halloween

Leanne and Dave were married on Friday 13th at The Wellbeing Farm in Lancashire. Their inspiration started with the wedding date, Friday 13th.

“We just wanted to make the wedding about us, not snobby but meaningful and fun”, said the bride. “We didn’t try to make our wedding alternative or different we just knew we didn’t want the posh do, its not true to who we are as people. I guess people would think the Halloween dĂ©cor is alternative for a wedding, but I think the most non-alternative guest would agree that everything was beautiful and ‘us’.”

Leanne wore the most stunning red dress from Amanda Wakeley‘ (her non-bridal collection). She paired it with a leather jacket she’d owned forever, Kurt Geiger shoes and a Vivienne Westwood bag. Her simple hair slides came from Sara’s Boutique on Etsy.

They disregarded a lot of wedding traditions including not having a bridal party (“instead I choose to include my close family members and they dressed themselves”), opted to serve a collection of their favourites cakes instead of one big, traditional one, and they didn’t have any flowers at all.

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.”
