It occurred to me the other day that I’m missing out on the lovely autumn vibes at home. I love Autumn! I know it’s probably many people’s least favourite but for me I love going for walks in rustling leaves, getting wrapped up and relaxing with a cosy coffee on the sofa. I also love Halloween and Bonfire night. Again, I know some people think these are so commercial now but come on, brighten up the Autumn by embracing the festivities.

Missing Autumn got me thinking about an inspiration board for an Autumn wedding. Most wedding venues get booked up first in the Spring and Summer months, however, if you’re a bride and groom with your hearts set on a certain venue, don’t let the season ruin your plans. Embrace the off season and create a cosy, autumn wedding full of golden tones and texture.

The colour palette for a true autumn style wedding obviously includes the golden and red tones inspired by the leaves. Teamed with a deep blue/ grey tone for an edge and soft natural tones for elegance and lightness. Don’t think that you have to choose one colour for your wedding style, don’t be defined by one colour. Think tonal and creative.

The florals on the board are organic and rustic representing the true nature of autumn. This is repeated in the headpiece which adds colour to the dress and a wild, bohemian texture. The flowing tulle dress has natural movement, again adding the organic free spirit of Autumn vibes.

The lighting and woodland location is soft and romantic. So romantic you are both whisked away when saying your ‘I do’s’. Lost in a moment with each other surrounded by candle light and nature.

The cake and gin bar are rustic focal points. Adorned with detail and foraged fruit. The semi naked cake makes a statement to Autumn and says it’s ok for the wild walks and lazy days. The gin bar in my opinion is always a must and this could adopt spiced gin flavours teamed with blackberries and wild herb garnishes – warming flavours of Autumn as opposed to those light summer blends.

The overall feel for this Autumn styled wedding is relaxed, romantic and intimate. So when your dream venue only has availability in October or November, don’t rule out an inspiring Autumn wedding day. It can be more magical than you expected. (And sometimes cheaper).

Sensual Teal

 

Hello.

Hope you’ve had lovely weekend. It’s been a gorgeous sunny weekend here in London. It’s also been a rare weekend of little plans which has been great. We’ve been out with friends, caught up on house work (unfortunately) and even got my head back into my Wedding Course.  However, I hate to say it, but Autumn will soon be approaching. Although I love summer, there is something about Autumn that makes me excited, I’ve always found it fascinating and have so many fond memories of conker picking as child. The turn in colour and Autumn walks with crunchy leaves make the season so embracing. The rich colours of Autumn are what has inspired this colour board. The warm amber and copper tones teamed with teal is a perfect colour scheme for an October or November wedding. The Teal is deep and sensual. A thought evoking colour.

It is said that people who are drawn to Teal are confident, sophisticated and have a positive outlook on life. For Egyptians it is the colour of truth and faith. With these connotations, it is a perfect choice for a wedding theme.

The dip dyed concept is shown on the board through the draped fabric and the marble styled cake. It adds an organic element to the scheme which contrasts with the almost geometric shapes in the invites. I love the teal painted wall with vintage frames. Although this wasn’t taken from a wedding, this idea could be used to display the couple’s family photos, maybe wedding photos from parents and grandparents for the extra sentimental touch.

The shoes are simply divine and could be the bride’s something blue to wear with her dress for the ultimate elegant, vintage and classic look.

The bouquet of fiery amber tones and organic greens bounce off the teal bridesmaid dress to add that punch complimenting colour.

So when summer is over, don’t be down, just think of the visual inspiration to come in Autumn. For more colour boards take a look over at my Inspiration Boards page.

Golden Boho Inspiration

Hello

It’s sunny! It feels like Spring has finally sprung after lagging behind these last few weeks. To celebrate, I’ve put together a new inspiration board to add to the collection. Titled ‘Golden Boho’, it captures the free spirit style of Boho, combining natural and metallic accents to enhance the style. The palette is detailed and textured. Soft, flowing layers are contrasted against geometric shapes for modern twist. I particularity would love to have a go at painting the tips of feathers with a metallic paint. Cost effective and easy to do décor, but look how stunning it is!

More inspiration this way…
