Autumn brings beauty all on its own, use it to your advantage! Nothing says romance like a fall wedding — there’s a crisp in the air that encourages some public cuddling (whatever, you know you love it), whiskey in your drinks, fresh apples and gracefully falling leaves. Ah, swoon. If you’ve got a autumn wedding in your future, you’re in luck — there’s so much to get creative with by building on existing natural beauty and this season’s trends encourage unexpected pairings and romance…romance everywhere.

Autumn Colours

The Floral Recipe

Pick flowers that are in season. Two reasons, really — they’ll be a better value (and then may we suggest redirecting that money somewhere fun?!) and they’ll also match your palette. Naturally. Just like your beauty (duh!).

Nan’s Furs
