HUNTED : { Wedding Inspiration : Autumn Harvest Wedding }

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!

“Autumn Fires” by Robert Louis Stevenson

There are far too many poems and passages written which describe Autumn with a heavy melancholy as though the end of Summer is the end of the world.

I whole-heartedly disagree. Autumn is one of the most magical seasons of the year. Robert Louis Stevenson speaks of “Autumn Fires.” As well as actual fires, the colours of nature burn at this time of year : oranges, golds, deep greens, browns. In my eyes Autumn is one of the most magical seasons to plan a wedding. 

If you’re thinking of an Autumnal do, take inspiration from the harvest around you, or take inspiration from the images below.

Fall Wedding Orange Accessories Shoe Clips

1. Lace Detail Wedding Dress // BrideChic. Autumn brides may have cooler temperatures to contend with. If you want to cover-up whilst staying chic, lace detail is a great option. The addition of maples leaves in this bride’s bouquet brings Autumn style to the forefront.

2. Etsy // Wheat Hairclip. A little rustic detail for the country bride’s hair. The braided, curled hairstyle is also very symbolic of Autumn, mirroring the plaited wheatsheaf.

3. Etsy // Autumn Shoe Clip. Another novel autumn accessory for the bride is the shoe clip. It’s a discreet way to get a pop of bright harvest colour on your outfit.

Fall Wedding Flowergirl Ideas

1. Orange Bridesmaid Dresses // Elizabeth Anne Designs. Orange Bridesmaid dresses are a tricky one to pick – some shades are very unflattering. These short dresses show how it’s done in style.

2. Golden Flowergirls // Oh Darling Wedding. Gold is arguably an easier shade to work with. These little flowergirls look radiant in the colour, with the woven baskets for flower petal and extra Autumn touch.
