After almost 9 years obsessed with all things weddings (yes WWW turns 9 in April eek!) one of the biggest trends I’ve seen over the years has to be the increase in couples tying the knot in the Autumn season. It really isn’t surprising when thinking about it though. I myself was wed in the Autumn and this editorial today really brought it all back in an instant. It really captures the Autumnal season and the beautiful tones we are always so excited to see. I love the bonfires and banquets vision, which is always perfect for a cosy gathering.
There are some super cool outfit ideas, divine florals everywhere, whimsical stationery and sublime images by WWW fave Lola Rose Photography. Oh yes. Enjoy it all folks.
“Autumn is such a romantic and beautiful time of year, it was the perfect season for this shoot, its bounty of tones and textures was our theme. We wanted to give a viewer all of the Autumn feels. What is more autumnal than bonfires, huge mugs of hot chocolate, cozy socks, grazing on all the yummiest foods, candle light and getting snug with a beloved.
I wanted this shoot to tell a story about our couple. We styled them in a mix of vintage, high street and smaller business products. I love the thought that a brides favourite high street shoes can be worn on her wedding day with a charity shop jacket that looks just right, these touches are the personality and individuality of a couple’s day.
Our story follows them from the building excitement getting ready to whizzing off in their vintage car to sneak some precious time together as newly weds.
We had a ball on shoot day and all of our suppliers went above and beyond bringing all we had imagined to life.
I stumbled across our amazing photographer Lola Rose through Instagram, her Insta tag is “Dream chasing, marshmallow toasting, campfire loving”- perfect, she was the gal!
Alswick was a great location for us, the original timber barn was a fantastic backdrop for our banquet and we made the most of its surrounding fields and beautiful wooded avenues.
Flowers by Meadowfolk showcased all that is autumn and cheeses and fruits from the The Cheeseplate looked so decadent on our banquet table. It could not have run more smoothly, a lovely day.”
