Before the season turns to Winter completely, we thought we’d show you this gorgeous Autumnal shoot, just brimming with covetable styling ideas. Autumn is a great time of the year to get married, the colours and textures in nature can be mirrored in your decor and the whole effect is so cosy and welcoming. The light is also incredible – the images by John Barwood have such a lovely feel to them.
Don’t forget that you can search through our real weddings by season, in the Real Weddings tab above, so if you’re looking for more Autumn wedding styling ideas, have a look through our archives. Once you’ve pinned all the gorgeous ideas from the shoot first of course…Jess at Blue Wren Barn has a great eye and we’re swooning over her styling.
This afternoon we’ve got a lovely engagement shoot for you all to swoon over. Justin and Camilla’s gorgeous Autumnal engagement shoot took place in the New Forest, which really is a lovely part of the UK. Wild ponies, babbling brooks, sunlit dappled glades – there really is nothing more beautiful than a forest for a natural backdrop.
Camilla and Justin are both photographers, so when chosing a photographer for their engagement shoot & wedding, I can imagine there were advantages and disadvantages. Lots of amazing contacts, but having to relinquish control??
Well luckily these two could call on Helen Cawte and Hayley Savage. As well as working individually, Camilla and Helen also form duo Millie & Belle and so the whole shoot basically became a collaborative creative effort.
The ladies all contributed different elements to the setting, everything other than the flowers was made by them or bought from their homes. Much more than just pretty faces these girls aren’t they?! That cake looks delicious…
The photos below are a mixture of film and digital as they wanted to see how the two dealt with the colours and faded light in the forest. The film images were then used afterwards as a base for our post processing of the digital files, to replicate the look. I think the overall look is gorgeous – very soft and romantic. Camilla and Justin look like they should be in the pages of a glossy magazine.
The beautiful sculptural bouquets, table settings and head piece were made by florists Little Lillies and add the perfect touch of colour and style to proceedings.
