Atmospheric Autumn Weddings Part II

Welcome to Part II of our exploration of Atmospheric Autumn Weddings…

Sparkers can also be a fun addition to any Autumn Wedding, but be sure to be extremely careful and take health and safety precautions. Display them in a Autumn themed basket to really add to your Autumn theme. You can even opt for a Halloween look and incorporate pumpkins into your look for a fun touch!

Autumn is also a great time for Wedding photo shoots to take place in the leaves. If you are getting married at a traditional Church or in a rustic barn there are plenty of pretty places to capture your special day. Venture to a nearby place for a wonderful Wedding photo shoot surrounded by the Autumn leaves.

Atmospheric Autumn Weddings Part I

The first day of Autumn has passed and we’re already in October, we can’t believe it. Not to worry Autumn is still a fantastic time to get married, and here’s why.

Due to the weather at this time of year we can’t always predict the weather however, the fallen leaves on the ground and early sunsets make for a beautiful setting to get married. The gold and brown tones of the leaves are a great basis to begin working your colour palette around. Ranging through warm tones of orange, green, brown, mustard yellow and salmon pink there are many looks to choose from. As long as you check the weather you can still have an outdoor Wedding in the Autumn time, you could even offer your guests blankets to keep them toasty if the temperature drops.

Leaves, trees and the outdoors are fantastic ways to work the Autumn theme into your Wedding. Wedding invitations adorned with leaves are a great choice, you could even get creative and make them yourself with fallen leaves from around your home or taken from the place where you are going to Wed. Pine cones, oranges and small logs can work as Wedding decorations and become part of centre pieces also. Using the natural objects available to you is a great idea to make your Wedding feel rustic and cosy.

Traditional toffee apples are a fun and cute idea for sweet treats at your Wedding. Apples can even be lovingly made into candles and worked into centre pieces. We love these cute apple candles.

Seasonal Soups

Autumn is the time of year when soup starts to creep back into our home meals again.

With this week taking us into October, it is regrettable that there are many variations of colds and dreaded flu’s flying around at this time of year. But soup is the ultimate cure!

preparing soup

The seasonal soups of our choice, for example, are as follows:

  • Summer roast vine tomato with a basil oil.
  • Autumn field mushroom with a thyme and rosemary croute.
  • Winter roast butternut squash with sage and parmesan.

We also serve these soups with a selection of handmade artisan breads which are made on the day by our local baker.


Hopefully you are feeling happy and well, but in case you aren’t these soup suggestions will warm you right through! Even if you aren’t ill, it’s always nice to have a good hearty soup with a lovely roll of bread for dipping – this part is essential.

So the above soups are just some of the ones we like to make and present at our events, depending on the season of course. However, there are so many different kinds of soup out there – don’t be thinking that you have to stick to the conventional options. There is more to soup than plain old tomato! Although, sometimes you just can’t beat it can you?

So get creative, use potato as a base to thicken your soup, and see what vegetables you have in your fridge and create something very special! Why not tell us about it?

What’s In Season This September?

It’s very important for us to keep up with the seasons and make the best of certain foods when they are at their best. Now, the Summer has passed (although we are enjoying the odd September sunshine) which was brimming with sweet fruits. But, September and Autumn are full of many more tasty treats than you would initially think!

Many people assume that fruit is no longer longer at its tastiest once we get into September but they are mistaken! Yes, the classic summer fruits such as strawberries are no longer in season (this doesn’t mean they aren’t good anymore of course) but, there are more fruits available which work wonderfully in many baked desserts… mmm. That’s right, you guessed it! Apples are at their prime right now so get picking and bake yourself a gorgeous home-made apple pie!


Not only that but pears are also in season at the moment so to add an extra flavour to your pie you could add pears for a little sweet surprise to your pie! Other fruits which are beautifully ripe are plums, figs and the pumpkin! So don’t forget to use the fruit of your pumpkin at Halloween – you could make a scary soup!

But, it is not only fruit which is ripe and ready for recipes this September but fantastic vegetables are at their best too!

Here is one of our dishes which utilises the french bean aka the green bean which is oh so tasty at this time of the year!

This is our roasted chicken breast finished with soft herbs, served on crushed new potatoes, with peppered french beans and a wild mushroom fricasse.


Keep up with us here for more tips on the foods you should be cooking with throughout Autumn, and of course, the year!
