Autumn is a truly golden time of year to get married in Devon. We are delighted to be welcoming several autumn weddings to Escot this autumn. The first is today and what a day they have picked. Congratulations to Susan and Gary!
After the strangest of times with postponed weddings, small weddings and restricted weddings, we’re now happily back in the rhythm. So why consider autumn as your wedding season over a summer wedding? Autumn runs from September to November, a season of change and often, of glorious colours. Certainly, our gardens always look stunning in autumn, the perfect backdrop for your photographs.
You can kick off your autumn wedding with pretty invitations using seasonal motifs like leaves and apples. Go the whole ‘natural’ hog and use hessian and brown paper. It may sound low key but this type of design can really make your guests look forward to a wedding that’s a little different to the norm.
Your autumn wedding finery can reflect the season; bridesmaids in burnt orange, berry red, deep chocolate or blackberry purple. Or stick to a neutral theme with creams accessorised in these types of colours. Wedding flowers can also pick up the warmer colours of autumn, orange, yellow chrysanthemum, dark red roses and seasonal berries.
With table dressing we have seen some wonderful autumnal arrangements at Escot, using natural plants and colours that really create a warm atmosphere. Autumn weddings are always an excuse to get real fires going inside the house. The Kennaway Room is particularly inviting with its log fire and cosy sofas for guests to relax on.
If you want to add in some fun events (and a more informal wedding), how about introducing apple bobbing, coin stamping or a bird of prey visit.
We’re big fans of autumn at Escot and we love to celebrate the season with our autumn weddings. If you’re thinking about an autumn wedding in Devon then come and have a look around our lovely stately home wedding venue and see what we offer.
