This year, summer turned into winter almost startlingly one day in late November. I feel like I missed out on the beautiful autumnal palette of oranges, russets, yellows, and umbers on the wind down towards Christmas, and was rather plunged into the big freezing wintry months with no warning. We didn’t even carve a pumpkin because we were about to move house. I say ‘we’, even though my role in that task is to drink wine and admire the handiwork. A vastly underrated role.
This is where this beautiful styled shoot comes in to ease the disappointment that I missed autumn in so many ways. There are pumpkins aplenty, all decorated differently with laces and typographical prints – how I love this trend of not having to go anywhere near a pumpkin with a great big knife! My kind of thing completely!
The bold and heady colours of the florals are those luxurious jewelled colours that come in every year to greet you as the weather gets colder and you need something to brighten the spirits.
The table décor is just right for an autumnal wedding feast with the mini pumpkins, the foliage and the tree sections.
The beautiful bride’s flower crown has berries, a motif echoed in the table details, and the orange of the pumpkins appears everywhere, including the groom’s bow tie and the twin bridesmaids’ dresses.
All in all, it makes me want to have a nice spiced cider and wrap up warm! If you’re having a wedding day at the end of the year, these are some stunning details to be inspired by. It’s not all about the summer!
