The interest and indulgence in all that is hand-made, home-baked, re-claimed and re-treasured is still a key element in life-style and wedding trends. From DIY projects to commissioning a designer-maker to create something special for your day, here we embrace just that through inspiring Autumn tones.
Here is hand-made at its finest. Individually crafted petals form these beautiful bespoke hand stitched bouquets and boutonnieres from Cheryl-Ann Taylor. Added details of seed heads and feathers make this a beautiful Autumnal keepsake that you can treasure for many years in your little nest of a home.
Home-baked rustic treats for desserts are perfect for the more home-spun wedding. Danish apple cake, deep filled jam tarts decorated with chopped berries, sprinklings of brown sugar all served just slightly warmed from the oven.
We are smitten with this menu from Ruby Shoes Wedding. Textures of tweed and cloth in rich palettes are certainly a warming detail to the colder seasons.
After the summer months we still crave to sit out on an early Autumnal evening. Nurture your guests with a cosy collection of blankets to snuggle up close.
It is great fun to search for those personal details that will help evoke a ‘carefully curated’ look to your day. Here we have used a charming floral backdrop of antique sari’s as tablecloths from ebay, floral pottery from car boot finds and sawn cuts of wood, all fabulous rustic treasures. Nail art is a great craft that you can do together or as a family project. Here we have used reclaimed blocks of wood to create threaded table numbers. You can use varied coloured/types of thread too for each number. Follow our DIY project here to create these hand-made alternatives to decorate your table.
