Spring, summer and winter all have their charms, but there is something about autumn that makes it a real golden season for weddings.


If you choose to say ‘I do’ in the autumn, you’ll be in very good company. Celebrities who have tied the knot with their partner while the leaves fell include George Clooney, President Barack Obama, Anne Hathaway, Solange Knowles, Scarlett Johansson, Elizabeth Taylor and Justin Timberlake.

Nothing exudes warmth and sophistication like the hues of autumn – rich reds, glamorous golds and smooth chocolate browns make an irresistible colour palette.

One of 2020’s hottest wedding trends has been a focus on sustainable weddings and bringing the outside in. So, if you’re looking for a rustic aesthetic for your wedding décor, with real foliage that won’t pollute the planet, nature adds its own stunning bronze sheen at this time of year.

You’re not limited to red, gold and brown for your autumn wedding flowers though. For an added burst of colour, flowers such as cosmos, snapdragons, delphiniums, dahlias and Japanese anemone are just some of the in-season beauties to consider for your bouquets and centrepieces. Green foliage is also still in plentiful supply, including ivy, lambs’ ear and grasses.
