When I asked Sinead and Simon what three words they'd use to describe their wedding in Warwickshire, England, their response was: ‘Autumnal Party Wonderland'.
So dear readers, it may be ‘beginning to look a lot like Christmas', your trees might be up and present wrapping underway but let's just hold onto the beauty of Autumn for one more day because this Fall wedding captured exquisitely on film by Depict Photography is sure to knock your (fair isle) socks off!
With hair as gorgeously fiery as Sinead's it seemed only right that the couple embraced the warm colours and textures of Autumn on their big day. The colour palette was a mix of green, gold, russet and yellow shades – even the church and reception venue were red brick! The couple brought the outside in with rustic, burlap wrapped tree centrepieces adorned with ribbons, fairy lights and handmade escort cards.
The bridesmaids wore sage green chiffon gowns teamed with rustic bouquets, Simon was dapper in a bespoke suit, floral patterned tie and matching silk pocket square. While Sinead looked beyond beautiful in a cap sleeved wedding dress teamed with a delicate row of rosebuds in her half up half down bridal hairstyle.
Prepare for some serious hair envy!
From The Bride…
We wanted to have a relaxed wedding with close family and friends that celebrated Autumn.
I walked down the aisle to Autumn by Vivaldi and the reception room was filled with red and green trees. We choose autumn natural colours for the bouquet which included oncidium orchids, a yellow native plant of Brazil which was the destination of our honeymoon.
Décor & Details
We had trees on every table, ribbons from the trees to a wine glass containing the place name, memory cards hanging from the trees, uplit russet trees in the corner, wedding memory tree.
We chose Depict Photography because they produce great photos which we saw when they shot a friend’s wedding at Warwick Castle the year before. More importantly though, we really liked them as people and are great fun which I think shows in the final shots.
