Leigh and Ché had an autumnal themed wedding in October. The heavily tattooed pair had pumpkins as décor and lots of lovely autumn colours as their colour scheme.
“Our wedding theme was definitely autumnal”, said the bride. “We chose purple and orange for our main colours, using leaves and pumpkins as decorations. We originally planned on getting married on Halloween, but decided to get married the weekend before so we could keep the pumpkin theme.”
“We wanted a much more relaxed, party type atmosphere, rather than all the formalities that can come with weddings”, she continued. “We decided not to have children at the wedding, so everyone could relax without having to worry about little eyes and ears. We also chose not to have any speeches, apart from a short one by the groom. We generally wanted to have a relaxed, enjoyable day. We also didn’t like the idea of table numbers, so we chose some of our favourite film titles instead and our top table was just the two of us!”
Alex and Brandi were married Historic Chelsea Train Depot in Michigan. Their wedding took place in October and had a rustic, Autumnal vibe.
“Our official wedding theme was ‘Priscilla Presley meets Downton Abbey'”, said the bride. “Were both pretty goofy people and our life together is light-hearted, relaxed and easy going. We’re not party animals, and we prefer an intimate night at the pub over a raging house party, so right away we knew we wanted our guests to feel that. Something with laser lights, crystals, and traditions was not going to work for us.”
“We wanted our wedding space to feel warm, cosy, relaxed, simple, and tasteful. We equate cosy with old and dusty so when I found the train depot and saw original wood floors, train ticket windows, and twinkling Christmas lights, I was in love. We kept a neutral colour theme because we are not really ‘bright pops of colour’ people. The one colour we both love is duck egg blue, so that was really the only brighter colour we used.”
Brides wearing non-white dresses are becoming more and more commonplace (yay!) and nothing thrills me more than seeing and sharing a beautiful babe rocking her own style on her wedding day. When Carina married Jay she decided to wear an original 1930s black floral dress from Hope and Harlequin. It went perfectly with their autumnal theme!
“My dress was an original 1930s metallic lame gown with replacement vintage black lace for the back panel”, she explained. “I think wearing a non-traditional wedding dress made the wedding feel very personal to me plus the choice of reception venue was quite unique. My earrings were the letters ‘C’ and ‘R’ to represent my new married initials and I made my flower headpiece myself. I foraged some of the foliage as well as bought some.”
