Although the days are getting shorter and the temperatures are getting lower, we can’t help but love autumn for its beautiful colours and clear and crisp weather. We can therefore see why the season is a popular choice with wedding couples, particularly those who crave a cosy setting, hearty food, vibrant blooms and oodles of romantic candle light.

Here to help inspire autumn brides’ choice of confetti to complete their seasonal celebration is our fabulous Sponsor, Shropshire Petals.

With an unbelievable amount of fabulous hues to choose from, couples can pick one of Shropshire Petal’s readymade mixes for their all-important confetti-shot moment, or alternatively create their own using the online ‘pick and mix’ tool to put a personal touch on their petals.

fall in love. pumpkins & lace for a seasonal wedding at arley hall – heather & steve

August 15th, 2016 | Rachel Parry

We’re kicking off your week with an exceptionally beautiful real wedding that started with a rather impressive proposal (top marks Steve!)

Taking place at Arley Hall in Cheshire, Heather and Steve’s big day features simple yet striking details, inspired by the cosy autumn season.

Cue pumpkin centrepieces, bright bouquets and a totally swoon-worthy lace dress…

heather says: We got engaged on 8th September 2014, while at El Matador Beach, Malibu. After our first full day of our two-week holiday travelling around California, Steve told me to be ready for 5pm but wouldn’t say what the plan was. When ready, we proceeded to walk downstairs to the foyer of our hotel on Sunset Boulevard. The receptionist giggled, and we were met by a driver who took us to a limo. We were driven to El Matador Beach and Steve told me we were going for a picnic. We walked around looking for a perfect place to watch the sun set when Steve knelt down and popped the question. He handed me a round, white box with a purple ribbon and within side it was purple cookie with “will you marry me” on it. Naturally, I said yes. We turned around and there was a photographer Steve had booked to capture the moment. It was perfect.

We set the date for October 17th 2015, as we wanted an autumnal wedding and also for it to be on a Saturday.

Our chosen setting was Arley Hall in Northwich, Cheshire. The hall had the option of a separate evening venue, which is something we wanted so evening guests felt completely part of the wedding and not thrown into the chaos from the day’s events. The hall and the grounds are gorgeous, and the history of the house makes it a fabulous backdrop for photographs.

As a nod to the season we had an autumnal “Fall in Love” theme, which included pumpkins, hessian and wood. There was no definite colour theme as we wanted a mixture of different hues.

I didn’t have much luck when looking for dresses but after a day’s searching I found the one in the n the last shop we visited, Wedding Belles in Frodsham. When we arrived there was an Intuzuri event on that we were unaware of. We got there at 4.30pm and the event stopped at 5pm with the dresses being packed up as we looked so I couldn’t believe when I came across a dress that I had previously ripped out of a magazine and put in my wedding scrap book. The dress was floor length with a train, very fitted with lace full length sleeves. It was full Chantilly lace and had a low back to it. I also had a Chantilly, elbow length veil to match.

Yorkshire Charm, A Real Wedding – Brenda & Matt

February 9th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Matt of Foden Photography, featured on Brides Up North a few weeks ago, sent me his Real Wedding in the Yorkshire Dales to share with you.  The Yorkshire rain didn’t dampen this couples’ spirits, I am pleased to report! Good old fashioned Yorkshire romance at it’s best!

As if it even needs explaining, Matt tells us why this Southern couple came up North for the most important day of their lives: Brenda and I spent a wonderful weekend in the Dales for the first time in 2007, and really fell in love with the place. It wasn’t just the wonderful countryside we loved, but also the great food, the slower pace of life, and the friendly and warm people.

When planning our wedding we wanted something intimate, warm and homely. So for us, a wedding in the Dales made perfect sense!

Our wedding venue was the wonderful Red Lion in Burnsall, a family run hotel set in the heart of the Dales.  The staff were fantastic, and considering that we planned the wedding with them from our home in Surrey, the day ran without a hitch.

We chose a burnt orange and gold theme to fit in with the time of the year (Autumn), and the flowers were provided by Wendy from Hedgerow Florists in Threshfield.

As we are wedding photographers ourselves, finding the right photographers was an essential part of our plans.  Morgan and Diane of Morgan Photography stood out for us, for their natural and contemporary style. We also loved the clean uncluttered way they designed our Jorgensen album. Morgan and Diane were fabulous to work with, and given the constraints of the day (heavy rain) we were blown away by our photos!
