LIGHT A LANTERN
GET THE LOOK | Brass candle lantern (£17.95) Paper High
Yes, yet another idea relating to lighting, but trust us – it will make such an impact for your autumnal wedding.
Pop some tealight candles (real or LED both will work) in a lantern for a gorgeous candlelight table centrepiece.
Make sure you clear the lighting of any real candles with your venue, as some don’t allow it.

LET LOVE SPARKLE

Gin is for every season, but this one just screams autumn!

GET THE LOOK | Personalised fire pit (£287), Arpe Studio UK
What better way to finish your autumn wedding than cosy under the stars with your nearest and dearest, toasting marshmallows over a fire pit?
Best of all, this is a wedding-related piece that you can keep in your own garden forever, so well worth the investment.
Personalise it with your wedding date.
LET LOVE GROW
Autumn in Scotland is a time of natural beauty, so we love the idea of bringing some of our beautiful woodland into your w-day set up with leaves and wooden logs.
You can even take this on as a DIY project – rope in your wedding party to help!
It’s getting a little chillier now that the winter is approaching, so use this as an excuse to get extra patriotic with a tartan shawl. The contrast against a white or ivory dress will look amazing in photographs.
Having an outdoor ceremony? Start collecting tartan shawls just now for guest to use over their knees, and for outdoor drinking later in the evening.
Sew little labels into them all and give them away as favours!

Pick something in keeping with the season – The White Company’s seasonal offering combines notes of amber, musk, pear, quince and apricot. Devine!
