Autumn Weddings

Autumnal weddings in a rustic luxury countryside setting

Cosy jumpers, thick woollen blankets, pumpkin spice in your coffee, sticky toffee apples, chairs pulled close to the fire, wooden logs and hot chocolate on the stove; a wedding in autumn is deeply nostalgic, romantic and for those who love a little bit of magic woven into their lives.

Autumn casts a spell across our rustic wedding venue with a magic that no other season quite manages. It begins with the low golden light of late September evenings, long shadows as the days shorten and the deepening of the leaves as they turn from bronze to bold orange and to burnt umber. Wood smoke laces the crisp air as the first frosts roll across the fields in swirling glittering ribbons and the countryside twinkles with morning dew. Getting married at Tower Hill Barns throughout the autumnal months is a truly spectacular experience.

Nestled in the Welsh countryside, we offer the flexibility of indoor or outdoor ceremonies. For those looking to keep things cosy and intimate, our honeyed timber and stone barn – adorned with strings of lights, decorated liberally with dried hops and lush country-lodge style decor and soft furnishings and an abundance of heady-scented candles – offers an intimate setting for your indoor ceremony and a warming retreat for you and your guests as you welcome in the new season of your love.

Whilst the outdoor spaces and grounds envelopes you in nature, allowing you to take full advantage of the golden light and rustic autumnal surrounds as the seasons change. Our intimate railway arch, framed by warm sandstone blocks and littered with leaves, provides a gorgeous textured backdrop to wedding photos. When bathed in soft golden light, our evergreens in rich jewel tones blended with the seasonal orange glow of our established Ash, Oak and Maple trees offer an unparalleled ambience to your day.

Warm, rich, fragrant and comforting are feelings evoked by our autumn wedding menus, all incorporating fresh seasonal produce from wonderful local growers and suppliers. Food is our love language at Tower Hill Barns, and every year we fall in love with the phenomenal colour palette offered to us by autumn. Opt for an earthy wild mushroom, truffle and parsley starter, followed by a fillet of Beef Wellington, with red cabbage, dauphinoise, garlic spinach, and red wine jus. Or hearty crowd favourites like beef Bourgignon and of course, Welsh Bara brith bread & butter pudding, vanilla sauce, cinnamon ice cream.

For evening drinks on the terrace, we recommend a rich, full-bodied and fruity sloe gin, hot buttered rum with nutmeg or a mellow blackberry fizz topped with a sprig of thyme from the gardens. If you’re looking for a splash of decadence to end your evening, opt for slow-cooked hot chocolate with double cream, fiery cinnamon and with a good drop of warming whiskey. There’s nothing better than a large mug of something rich, fiery and warm on a cool October night.

Fresh, crisp mornings with bright autumnal sunlight give way to clear starry evenings, and with a light blanket beside the steady orange glow of the fire pit, you can spend the rest of your wedding day outdoors. As your evening music floats through our Bose speakers, clink glasses, toast marshmallows and catchup, fire-side, before heading inside to let loose on the dance floor. For nostalgic bonfire night entertainment, just add sparklers.

Styling your autumn wedding theme

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.
