Top Tips for an Autumn Wedding Day

Autumn Wedding Day

Autumn is an amazing time to get married and it’s becoming ever more popular each year. With lots of warm days and cooler nights, the rich colours of the season make a great backdrop to any wedding. We’ve put together some top tips for a gorgeous autumn wedding day.


Autumn still brings us good weather during the day and the incredible natural light can be breathtaking. Think crisp air and sunshine which mellows into a beautiful atmospheric dusk. It’s a great time to get those all important wedding photographs.

Preparation is Key

It is always good to be prepared for any eventuality. It could be a little breezy or even raining so make sure you have umbrella’s, cover ups for the key people and your dress. Read more tips about what to do if it rains on your wedding day.

Wedding Dress

There are all sorts of options around wedding dresses for an autumn wedding day. Short wedding dresses with a shrug or built in jacket are a fabulous idea with changeable weather. You can create two looks whilst also staying ahead of the weather.

Rustic Theme

The rich colours of the season can be brought to life with burnt orange and deep chocolate taking the lead. It can be a full on autumnal theme with pumpkins and leaf designs on invites and table decorations or gorgeous flowers that are in season. Warm colour schemes work to make the day visually stunning. Use berries on table decorations or around the wedding cake for added effect.

Food and Drink

Autumn weddings are a great time for sumptuous feasts and deep wines with rich notes. Comfort food is the way to go, think about serving mulled wine on arrival for an added twist. Warming flavours and rich earthy dishes are always popular on autumn wedding days.


Make a real statement and invite your guests out to watch fireworks in the fading light. If the venue doesn’t allow a full display then opt for sparklers and make sure you get those all important romantic shots as our real bride and groom, Tracey and Leo, did.
