Here in the SP shed, we love to have a good read
of wedding blogs with a cuppa and some biccies. One of our favourites is Adored
Bride, filled with beautifully photographed inspiration to help
with your wedding planning. We have
invited the lovely Becca from Adored Bride to tell us all about her top
autumnal wedding ideas to give your some inspiration this autumn.

Becca, I’m a stylist and
blogger and I curate the wedding blog Adored
Bride. The lovely folks here at Shropshire Petals
kindly invited me to contribute this guest post and with my love of autumn, it
was a perfect excuse! So along with the
epic natural petal confetti throw you are having at your autumn wedding, here
are a few other ideas!
As we gently start to slip into very early
autumn and the start of it’s
mists and mellow fruitfulness, it’s
a great time to think about how this beautiful season can influence the design
of a wedding day.
Autumn weddings can be blessed with a late blast
of warm balmy days, with amazing light for photos and a stunning golden
haze to everything. It can get a little chilly in the evenings though and I
love this idea for an intimate wedding of doubling up your chair covers with
cozy blankets tied with names. If you are having a larger wedding, you could
stack some fruit crates filled with fluffy blankets for guests to sit round
outside fire pits, watch fireworks and toast marshmallows.
Decorating tables with fruit such as little
golden painted pears with nametags attached, or seasonal apples, pomegranates,
gourds and little pumpkins will also bring that natural rustic autumnal feel to
the venue. Creating a lovely homely, relaxed and cosy ambience.

gone for a gorgeous dress to suit a boho, farmhouse or even a city style
wedding, I’m always a fan of
flowers in your hair. Whether you work with your florist or select some floral
accessories from one of the great makers on Etsy maybe, choosing some gorgeous
rich warm florals will instantly give that feel of the season.
You can pick out a colour in the florals that
can then tie in with all the other elements on your day, it can be a subtle
hint or as bold as you like.
Autumn is synonymous with harvest, all those
gorgeous hedgerow foraged fruits and seeds, and allotments and farmers markets
full of veggies! Just perfect for cramming all that gorgeous seasonal yummy
into your wedding cake. You could have a naked cake decorated with fruits,
berries and nuts, maybe with a carrot and parsnip cake layer! Or even a
chocolate and beetroot layer! I also love a bit of bling so perhaps a dripped
icing cake with a gold cake topper or a bit of gold foil with fresh fruit piled
Cheese cakes always make for a super popular
choice too with guests, decorate with figs and serve with seasonal chutneys,
Sloe gin, blackberry rum, hot whisky toddies and
spiced hot cinnamon cider, all amazing for an autumn wedding. Get making your
own or maybe hire a cool mobile bar to serve your guests a seasonal boozy treat
to warm them.
If you are not getting married in the autumn and
now feel like you are missing out on this gorgeous season, you could always
have an engagement shoot with your wedding photographer. It’s a great way to get to know them ahead of
the day, relax in front of the camera and get some amazing natural shots of
just the two of you and maybe a furry pal!
Thank you Becca for those gorgeous autumn wedding ideas, it’s making us want to plan an autumn wedding.
