Autumn Wedding Decorations


Autumn Colours and Scents

The autumn season heralds the start of the leaves changing colour to shades of rustic reds, sunset auburn, russet gold, burgundy and rich browns.

An autumnal wedding look can be created simply with the right cosy glow lighting and rustic woodland table decor. Add scents from apple, orange, cinnamon and star anise alongside scattered pine cones, acorns and conkers for a real autumn look and feel.
