If you haven’t already heard, summer is officially over. Wave goodbye to skipping stones across the loch, planning family BBQs and enjoying ice cream on the decking, and say hello to cosy nights in, big pots of comfort food and hearing the rain splash on the roof.
The change in weather can influence more seasonal food, colours and celebrations, such as autumn weddings. Gone are the days when weddings could only take place during summer. Weddings are now an all year-round event, with some of the most breath-taking ceremonies taking place out with traditional seasons. Autumn and winter weddings are growing in style so we’ve come up with a guide on how to plan the perfect Autumn Wedding.

An Autumn Colour Palette
Having an autumnal wedding truly opens up your colour palette to explore new shades that aren’t connected with a ‘traditional’ wedding. With an autumn wedding, think about incorporating richer shades like rust, chocolate, purple, burgundy or orange as these will complement the natural elements surrounding your wedding.
However, if you feel you are relying too heavily on an autumnal colour palette, liven it up with shades like cerise, yellow, green or sky blue. These shades are best used sparingly, but when used they create a stunning contrast to your existing palette.
Another way to incorporate colour into your autumnal wedding is by looking around for inspiration. Look at what’s currently in season – add berries or seasonal squash to your bouquet. This is another way to bring the elements indoor, but also further emphasise your theme for your guests.
The theme does not have to stop when decorating for your evening guests! Although it can be tricky to bring the outdoors inside during meal times, there are certain ways to do it whilst remaining tasteful.
Also think about adding toffee apples as table decorations, have them scattered in various places or even attach your guests’ names to them have them double as both favours and place settings. This would get your guests talking and the children would love them!
Pinecones and chestnuts can also be added to your table decorations. Maybe think about spraying them gold in order to make them feel warmer and more opulent. Place them in jam jars for a rustic effect or place them at the bottom of candles as additional décor.
Drimsynie is a truly special spot and it is a true hidden gem. Framed by mountains and gazing out towards the sea loch, it’s a unique and romantic setting… perfect for a day you and your guests will remember forever.
