Rich colours, candlelight, flowers and foliage bring the outside in and create a warm, inviting ambience on an autumn day. If you’re in the midst of planning your wedding décor and looking for a little inspiration, you need look no further!
This season offers so many beautiful flowers, from pretty dahlias to poppies, delphiniums, hydrangeas, romantic roses and an abundance of foliage.
Informal arrangements work perfectly in a barn wedding venue. We loved the quirky table flowers at the autumn wedding of Alice and J.
Make the most of foliage to create rustic table runners or centrepieces. Log slices look great on tables at a barn wedding venue.
While flowers and foliage are really all you need to decorate your tables, you might also add a few details, from menus to place cards.
Foliage and leaves make lovely autumnal placecards
You might also include the occasional pumpkin and remember… they come in a number of colours.
Table numbers and menus add further detail to your décor
Finally, don’t forget some thoughtful favours that also become part of your décor, from homemade jam or chutney to hot chocolate ingredients!
All About Lighting
From ambient candlelight to twinkling fairy lights and pretty votives. As the nights draw in, create a romantic vibe with thoughtful lighting.
The Granary Barn looks dreamy at this time of year, with its fairy lights and chandelier.
Light up the room with giant illuminated letters – they’re great fun and add an element of personalisation. Talk to the Events Team at Curradine Barns about using the venue’s giant illuminated letters totally free of charge!
Introduce lanterns and candles to your tables, with an autumnal twist.
The Wedding Cake
There’s nothing we love more than a fabulous wedding cake to highlight your wedding style and colour scheme.
Naked and semi-naked cakes work wonderfully in the autumn, particularly with the addition of berries and seasonal flowers. The informality of the style is perfect for a country barn wedding.
Alternatively, keep it classic with an elegant white cake.
Finally, choose something completely different. For something sweet, how about a doughnut wall? Or for something more savoury, a stacked cheese wedding cake decorated in berries and figs is sure to add a real autumnal feel. This can also be sourced and decorated for you by our catering team, Galloping Gourmet.
