Crisp burnt oranges, sparkling gold metallics and warming reds are still one of the most iconic and popular colour combinations for weddings. There’s never a wrong time of the year to use these colours, however, these seasonal tones are just perfect for autumn weddings. This stunning editorial shoot at the luxurious venue, Somerley House (where popular TV shows, ‘Bridgerton’ and ‘The Crown’ were filmed) is a gorgeous example of this! The autumnal wedding theme at Somerley House has created a true fairytale escape with a stunning wedding dress by Recommended Supplier, Olive Blossom Bridal, a cosy tablescape, and beautiful architecture. All of this was captured by the wonderful Recommended Supplier, NK Photography

Autumnal wedding inspiration at Somerley House 

Our inspiration for this shoot was deeply rooted in the warm hues of autumn, with a particular emphasis on the opulence of gold metallics. Drawing inspiration from the regal settings depicted in popular period dramas like ‘Bridgerton’ and ‘The Crown’, we aimed to infuse the shoot with a sense of class and sophistication.

Somerley House Wedding Venue

Hosted at Somerley House in Winchester, a location synonymous with class and regal charm, this editorial shoot is one we are delighted to share. Having graced the sets of ‘Bridgerton’ and ‘The Crown’, the rich history and timeless elegance of this venue provided the perfect backdrop for an autumnal and whimsical fairytale wedding. The stately architecture and lush surroundings at Somerley House added an undeniable touch of grandeur. How stunning! Naturally, Recommended Supplier and celebrant, Celebrate With Verity, brought all the romance. 

Autumnal Wedding Inspiration

The colour palette for this editorial revolved around autumnal tones, with a focus on rich, warm colours that evoke the changing leaves. Gold metallics were seamlessly integrated into the details, from the stationery and jewellery by Recommended Supplier, Garter & Veil, to the venue decor styled by Recommended Supplier, Ambience Venue Styling UK. The gold enhanced the overall opulence of the setting. The juxtaposition of these elements created a harmonious blend of classic romance and contemporary allure that just go hand in hand with the season and Somerley House. 

This tablescape is so dreamy! An autumnal wedding theme is always so magical!

For fashion and beauty, our styled shoot showcased models in breathtaking, floaty dresses, exuding both movement and class. The carefully curated hair and makeup artistry embraced delicacy and a natural aesthetic, casting a soft, autumnal glow on the models.
