There isn’t much not to like about the Autumn season in the UK; dramatic countryside with the turning of the leaves, soft autumn sun and an excuse to bring out the cosy cardigans. If you are thinking of planning a wedding for next autumn, have a look at our tips below and our inspiration for autumn flowers.

  • The early evening light in the autumn is absolutely beautiful; the golden hues make for some incredibly romantic shots. With this in mind, make sure you both take 15 minutes with your photographer before your evening meal to go on a walk and take in your big day.
  • Typically the weather in Autumn is fairly mild, so if you are worried about being able to wear the strapless dress you always dreamed of, go for it! As the evening draws in, you can always team your dress with a cashmere wrap around cardigan to keep you looking stunning, but most importantly warm.
  • Bring a bit of luxe to your autumn wedding. Here at the Eden & Eve headquarters, we are still absolutely loving rose gold tones, well metallic tones in general. Why not mix green foliage such as eucalyptus and sage with small foiled berries within your bouquet to incorporate that oh-so-stylish feeling in to you wedding day
  • The darker evenings lend themselves well to creating a cosy atmosphere for your guests. Why not serve your guests with a warming drink in the lull between dinner and dancing such as a spiced apple cider whilst your dining tables are filled with candles?
  • Have you ever thought about getting married as the evening sets in but before the evenings get too cold? If that is you, then maybe an Autumnal wedding is for you. If you decide to break with a traditional service and use the services of a celebrant, you can get married anytime, anywhere. We saw this gorgeous piece of inspiration and just thought this would be such a perfect setting for an outdoor, autumnal evening ceremony.
  • Traditional colours during the autumn months are traditionally orange, gold, reds and greens. We love the vibrant and rich colours of the traditional autumn colour but we also love the use of rich plums, soft pastel pinks and touches of muted greens such as eucalyptus – oh and using fruit in your flowers is completely a must too!! Please embrace having blackberries in your bouquet – they are just gorgeous, that is all.
