Posts featuring ‘fall’

Fall romantics…

… is the wonderfully apt name of the latest range of gorgeous headpieces by Mignonne (apart from the first one, that’s from last year but I liked the leaves). If you’ve been reading the blog for a while now you’ll know that, along with my love of pretty things, I’m a sucker for beautiful photography. Product photography when done well makes me so happy because it shows off the piece to the extent it deserves and makes my blog look lovely ;)

And Mignonne have perfected the art of pretty product photography. Of course you still need the product to be good and Jenn’s creations don’t disappoint there. These flowers and feathers in pretty pastel shades would definitely look divine on a fall bride… and I’d even be tempted to steal the photo idea for a cute photo booth backdrop too ;)


And this is just the Fall Romantics collection. There are loads more in the shop so go have a look :)

Simple is beautiful

For some, weddings are seating plans and gift lists, the dress and shoes that match the decor. But what if you don’t want any of that, what if you just want to get married? Well you can. When I stumbled across Elsa & Tyler’s wedding on a recent Google adventure I was completely bowled over by just how simple and sweet it was; an excellent example of how to have a small but perfectly formed wedding.

Elsa & Tyler got married in a woodland with only eight guests present, and even one of them was a dog. Afterwards they celebrated with their guests by shucking and barbecuing corn, eating red velvet cakes out of jars, being serenaded by guitars and drinking beer. With a few little DIY decor details thrown in such as the garland and the bunting and with a wedding pie instead of a wedding cake this beautiful big day has to go down as one of my all time favourites…






Wow right?! And not only did I find a wedding I loved but I also discovered a fantastic photographer in Kim Miller. Have spent a good portion of the day drooling over her work :)

Inspiration Board: An autumn affair

As the days get colder in autumn I like to stay indoors more, cosy up under a blanket with a hot drink and eat stodgier comfort food. If I had an autumn wedding I’d like it to reflect this mood. Rustic elements have a cosy appeal and are ideal for an autumn wedding and an emphasis on food, for me, would be a must!

Inspiration Board: Autumn

Autumn affair

Here are a few of my ideas to help you achieve an autumn affair:

Stationery: Anything with leaves on goes or simply hint towards your colour scheme: browns, oranges and golds with a splash of colour would be perfect!

Bride: I think I’d be tempted to pass on a veil and go for a cute, rustic felt flower such as this one from Ink & Button.

Bridesmaids: Any earthy tone would work but I also like the idea of going for a bolder golden yellow such as this dress.

Shoes: Gold or bronze would suit. I’m a big fan of the Vivienne Westwood heart shoes and they come in gold!

Flowers: The flowers in the inspiration board are taken from photographer Jessica Claire’s wedding. Those warm colours teamed with the gold vase are ideal for a fall wedding. You can check out loads more inspiration from Jessica’s beautiful wedding here.

Groom/groomsmen: A boutonniere incorporating one of the felted acorns in the image would be adorable!

Decoration: Again, Jessica Claire’s wedding is full of inspiration. An old door with keys hanging from it and guests’ names attached is a rustic and beautiful escort card idea! Pumpkins also make a great addition to autumn decoration. Use them as vases for flowers or get them glittered!

Cake: The taste of the cake can really add to the autumn theme. A ‘warm’ taste such as ginger, pumpkin or cinnamon really suits. The cake in the image is ideal as the golden apples are, not only reminiscent of harvest time, but also a perfect-for-autumn colour and the simple pouring of sauce on top has a lovely homemade, rustic quality.

Favours: A homemade favour would be a nice touch to a rustic affair. I love the idea of homemade jam or chutney, especially with as cute a label as ‘Spread the Love’! Here’s an autumn-inspired recipe for you: Spicy Plum & Apple Chutney. Toffee or chocolate dipped apples would also be amazing! And you could make a name label in the shape of a leave to double up as a place name!

Food: If you’re not serving candied apples as favours then you could serve them up at the reception. Pie pops are a modern and brilliant idea that I’m sure your guests would love! In addition, loads of regular sized pies would be perfect: savoury and sweet. And I love the idea of having warm spiced apple cider flowing all evening.

Other ideas: Even the venue can add to the mood. A barn is the perfect venue for an event like this, although any venue can be transformed. Lighting will add to the cosy appeal so go for candles everywhere (if you’re allowed them!) And, if like the image, you can get a wall of logs for your band to play in front of then do it! How awesome does that look?!
