Can you believe we are fast approaching a new season?! These outdoor Autumn wedding ideas today are making me feel all warm and fuzzy as we look forward to Autumn. The beautiful mustard and burgundy tones, the totally cool flowers and the woodland setting, swoon!
Set at Parish’s House this shoot was all about hosting an outdoor affair whilst bringing together super stylish wedding ideas. The bride and groom rocked their on trend outfits and accessories, these was a dramatic bridal bouquet and a statement butter cream cake creation. The ceremony was held beneath a gazebo adorned with palms, pampas grass and pink gypsophila, before a table was set out in the woods to celebrate. I love the hint of black in the decorations, with the hue being used in the tableware and stationery to great affect. Also look out for a really fun drinks reception, it looked brilliant. Ruby Walker Photography captured the whole editorial just wonderfully, enjoy.
The shoot was inspired by the new gazebo built in an area surrounded by trees which the venue, Parish’s House, aptly calls the “Woodland area”. The space features wood tones and green leaves in the summer. However, with autumn approaching and the changing of the leaves imminent, we were inspired by the golden and auburn tones of the leaves.
The woodland area is enchanting and offers windows to the rolling greens beyond. It’s a beautiful backdrop for any garden wedding with its natural beauty.
The faux drinks receptions features a converted tuk tuk which serves Prosecco with the option to jazz it up with various flavours. For those of us who aren’t a fan of bubbles to celebrate, they also offer beer and coffee. We thought bubbles would be the best way to celebrate the union and the tuk tuk is small enough to fit seamlessly into the space and relaxed enough to suit the occasion.
In keeping with the relaxed vibe, we dressed the bride in a lace topped dress with a loose skirt and the groom in daring all black with a hint of velvet in the jacket. Rather than a veil, we adorned the bride with a large pearl headpiece also from ASOS. The groom’s dark suit was accented with a burgundy bow tie and a rustic boutonnière.
We staged a relaxed ceremony in front of the gazebo using rustic benches for seating and the gazebo frame as an altar. The frame was decorated asymmetrically with dried and fresh flowers to add volume as well as pops of pink and burgundy colour contrast to the wood.
For the reception set up, we used rustic wooden chairs with a matching rustic table which suited the area perfectly. Small potted arrangements with intermingled candles decorated the table. The tableware provided by Duchess & Butler adds darker tones to the design as well as golden highlights. This topped with modern stationery from Loupaper creates the dark luxurious table of our dreams.
The bouquet featured flowers ranging in tones as well as a mixture of fresh and dried. This was tied together with a long golden velvet ribbon which can be seen trailing in her hands.
