We are not quite ready to let go of the autumn just yet,  therefore today we are sharing a beautiful Autumnal styled shoot, where abundance meets refined country glamour. Set at a the beautiful South Norfolk wedding venue at Applewood Hall, it really captures and showcases the beauty of autumn.

THE INSPIRATION

Looking ahead to next year’s Pantone colours which are bold, empowering tones – there was one that caught the eye, cheekily named Jester Red. Inspired by this playful colour and the vibrant shades of autumn, the team at Applewood Hall wanted this photo shoot to celebrate this time of year.

So with a colour palette of rich reds and deep plums in mind, they felt that a country glamour theme would really bring this to life. Using rich jewel tones of trailing Amaranthus, Astilbe, Astrantia and pink ice Protea with seasonal foliage including Hydrangea, Populus leaf and Leucodendron for the bridal bouquet and arbor archway, they then added pheasant feathers and trailing garnet ribbon to the bridal bouquet, plum draping on the arbour and claret chair drapes to add that extra autumnal feel.

 

This was complimented with natural accents from the heavy wood trestle tables, wicker peacock chairs and sheepskin throws as well as the pearl brooches on the chair drapes. Glimpses of gold from the antique brass candle holders and personalised wedding sign as well as a ‘gentleman’s bar’ featuring bottles of whiskey, port and sherry, with crystal tumblers and decanters gave a bit of added sparkle too!

 

We wanted to add as much detail as possible so there was always something new to look at – almost like raiding an old country house and bringing it all to life outside in Applewood Hall’s beautiful garden, showing how it can be used for a ceremony on a sunny afternoon.” – Kiera Goymour, Applewood Hall

 

The stunning all-over lace Rebecca Ingram dress was chosen to add that romantic, vintage feel. It’s deep neckline with scalloped edging and double-keyhole back added classic elegance. In order to catch the afternoon sun, our bridal look featured gold shimmering eye shadow and a striking deep red lip.

The team really wanted to celebrate the bounty of autumn harvest with an opulent sharing style feast of hearty pies and mouth-watering puds. A five-tier buttercream wedding cake also encapsulated our autumnal theme with sprigs of foliage and feathers.

I bet it tasted sensational!
