When you are hunting for really helpful wedding ideas it’s a minefield out there. Let’s face it there are a million and 1 sources of inspiration when you’re planning a wedding. I am actually thankful that the likes of Pinterest and Rock My Wedding weren’t around when I was wed as I think I would have been sacked from my PA position for wasting time online. BUT where would the modern day couple be without this here internet and the plethora of ideas and offerings it has for our starry eyes to take in?

5 Truly Quirky Autumn Wedding Ideas | Woodland Animals & Pasties

Autumn Weddings are a dream to me, fresh crisp air, blue skies, orange leaves drifting on by, yeah, if I did it again I’d do it autumn. I have heard many a photographer say it is the best time of year for wedding photos too, something to do with the light, the atmosphere, the colours I guess. So here are a few really great, easy, and of course, quirky Autumn Wedding ideas . .


Autumnal Floral Bag | Alternative Bouquet by Julie Cambridge

I don’t know about you but I LOVE succulents, they ooze life, they compliment all types of flower and foliage but this is just awesome. Julie Cambridge recently won a prize for this creation, just look at those orchids, house leeks and seasonal berries all snugged up in a wooden bridal bag. This is top of my list of truly delightful Autumn Wedding Ideas. Stunning I’d say.


Autumnal Glitter Leaf Decorations

Who knows a child? Yeah we all know a child don’t we. Who knows a child who wouldn’t like collecting some leaves? Not me! Who knows a child that doesn’t love glitter? Well actually we could substitute the word child for human here. Autumn wedding ideas don’t come more glitzy than this

Autumn Colour Palette

Found on ITakeYou.Co.Uk this gorgeous autumn colour palette is just my idea of autumnal heaven. Teal and orange are so great together, I might even be tempted to befriend a redhead just to have her wear a teal dress on the day, well maybe I wouldn’t go that far but just imagine that.

Woodland Animal Details

Get some woodland animal inspired details going on! Sarah London Photographer was kind enough to share this fab cake (above) that she shot at a recent wedding, the colours and the foxy toppers scream AUTUMN. Those mini pumpkins and leaves on the cupcakes are just fab aren’t they?! I also adore the cake (below) which was sent to me by FitzGerald Photography, and ‘dear me’, that beast is to die for is’t she? Not to offend the bull, oops, sorry.

Late night Autumnal Tummy Warmers

I don’t think there is anything more satisfying than warming your tum up on a cold autumn evening. If you are looking for foody autumn wedding ideas then maybe consider the humble pasty. I tell you what your guests will be SO darn grateful and won’t forget the moment they were feeling a bit chilly and the late night treats arrived. I bet they’re good at soaking up the booze too.
