If an autumn wedding is on the cards, you’ll find there are plenty of colours to work with. For something traditionally autumnal, embrace deep coppers and bronze, muted marigold oranges and rich maple red–equally bold and exceptionally on-trend, it’s difficult to go wrong with the staple seasonal colours.
But autumn can be a riot of sensational colour, and so we love to see brash clementines, dramatic pomegranate mauves, deeply vibrant raspberry pinks and even chartreuse or intense peacock blues offsetting darker colours and accented with forest greens or golds. For those preferring a more neutral and understated vibe, what about pairing terracotta with sage greens for a calmer and more sophisticated palette? Or keep it simple with hues of gold, soft beiges, stones and dove greys, reminiscent of the golden late September evenings in the Welsh countryside.
In bouquets and centrepieces, try incorporating plenty of textures through foxgloves, antique roses, dried ferns and ranunculus. Tulips, dahlias and sprays of roses offer a romantic focal point, while berry sprigs, trailing ivy and twigs lace the arrangement with a hint of pagan magic. And for fabrics of the season that work for chair covers, ceremony drapery, table runners, place settings or napkins include velvet, tweed, corduroy, bouclé, linen, burlap and knitted wool in earth tones of mustard, burgundy, bronze and olive green.
