“It’s time to fall in love with autumn all over again”

There are just so many reasons to love the season but where can we even begin? 

Ultimately if you’re trying to decide when to host your wedding, you can’t go wrong with a wedding during the months of September, October, or November.

And, with all of the magic that autumn has to offer, I can tell you that it makes for some of the best wedding photos possible. 

An autumn wedding is the perfect in-between in terms of weather; it’s no longer hot and dry like it is during summer, but it’s also not yet as cold and overall wet as in winter which serves perfect for a half indoor and half outdoor event. 

That fresh crispy weather, the gorgeous foliage, the classic -fragrant- signature spices, and the muted earthy tones that make for stunning paper goods and rich flower arrangements do more than set the perfect background for a nuptial scene and here you will find a range of ideas perfect for any type of  Fall Fête from casual to modern, and from rustic to formal.

Cozy throws, dramatic fireplaces, apple-filled baskets… The season’s scarlet, transitional burnt orange and rich ochre hues create an unparalleled backdrop for your portraits and decor.

Centerpieces in the fall’s floral hits mixed with dried subtle foliage and leaves that provide plenty of texture and glam… 

We believe that there is a reason why fall has become an increasingly favorite season for weddings, for it allows the prettiest outdoor wedding pictures with a hint of drama.

9 Tips for an Autumn-Winter Wedding

If you are reading this post you probably don’t need any convincing that fall is a great time to have your wedding. 

The breathtaking backdrop of the changing leaves, the flavorful menus with harvest produce, and the seasonal ample cheer combined with the fresh crispness of the air. And, on top of it all, an autumn wedding is just out of the peak wedding season, meaning a better chance of booking your dream venue and the possibility to hire the best vendors!  

Whether your wedding plans got hijacked by the corona pandemic, or find yourself completely smitten by the season’s colors and love the coziness of sweater weather, in this post we are looking to inspire you with the wedding of your dreams. 

And, I’m super excited to share that there are many ways to profit from what the season has to offer from the ceremony to the reception because every single detail can benefit from some seasonal flair. And that is why last week I joined a group of several masters in the wedding field to recreate a vision of possibilities.

So, let’s talk about the details….

1) The Location Venue: Choose a location with a lot of characters such as Kasteel Kerckebosch, more clearly, look for a location with the option of indoor and outdoor setting possibilities because in case of rain we must always be prepared with a plan B.

2) A waterproof Hair & Make-up will be always a good idea.

Just in case this happens:

3) When it comes to time… We advise you to schedule couples and family’s photo sessions as early as possible and remember that the days are significantly shorter during these months.

Outdoor, after the storm.

4) Seasonal flower decor… With falls’ greatest hits such as dahlias, golden roses, rust astilbe, or with the latest trend on dried flowers and greenery such as this ones created by our friends at Bloemenservice Nederland; the classic becomes unexpected.

And, don’t you love the flower crowns?

5) Adamant is a venue with plenty of nature within a walking distance for both the bride and groom as for the guests. This is key because in order to make the most beautiful pictures we must have the ceremony, wedding portraits, and reception within close proximity to make the most out of time and daylight.

6) Another aspect to consider should be looking for large windows that let plenty of light inside, this is an indispensable feature to create a romantic yet cozy atmosphere and unforgettable images.

7) For the wedding dress, the weather is perfect to wear those long lace sleeves or to even wear a cape!

8) When it comes to the color palette, get romantic with warm jewel tones, deep greens, a party full of reds and mustards. Or, why not? Get dramatic with “pumpkin, sage, and blush” or, “merlot, peach, and sage”.  Mustard, actually,  is among the wedding trend colors of this year. So, for added coordination why not ask your guests to dress according to your palette.

9) Love is in the details that make one’s party unforgettable with extra details such as:

And sparklers for the end of the day.

Fall works for many couples because it doesn’t compete with family vacations, reunions, and holidays over the summer and spring. Don’t overlook the beauty of fall. Weddings can be even more fun when you add a little twist and uniqueness to it, and every fall wedding can pull that off effortlessly. When deciding autumn is surely a romantic season you will never regret.

“Let’s not let fear cloud our gaze” – Coronavirus situation and your wedding plans.

To my dear couples,

In the last couple of days, we have witnessed that preserving life and that of our loved ones comes above everything else and that sometimes our plans are completely out of our hands. Yet, as long as we have health, everything else has a solution.

For this 2020 wedding season, I’m committed to 26 beautiful couples who have decided to unite their lives in matrimony and celebrate with their loved ones the love that they share. My work has always filled me with satisfaction because I firmly believe that my mission in life is to attest the love in people’s lives and safeguard that moment through photography for present enjoyment as that in future generations.

The truth is, that we are unable to predict the future and we do not know what will happen in the following weeks or months, but what I do know is that I am here willing to provide solutions.

“Let’s not let fear cloud our gaze”, we are all together in this, and for me, after my family and my own life, you and my commitment are what’s more important.

So, if you are forced to postpone the date of your wedding to a later date of the current year, I am willing to do it without the need of additional payments to those already agreed. I just ask that we wait together patiently a little bit longer. No need to despair.

We can look together at our agendas, and find a solution around the current international problem that has shaken the world and affected us all.

My tips until now:

  • Depending on the date of your wedding, start looking into the possibility of moving the date into later on this year.

  • Contact all your suppliers before making any decisions and changes.

  • Remember that the warm months are the most popular and (almost) always full, consider the also not so popular days such as Monday, Thursday, and Sunday.

  • Winter weddings are also an option and beautiful in their own way.

  • If you are planning to invite more than 100 guests, consider reducing the number and take into account the elderly and those most vulnerable.

  • And, until further notice we will do our pre-wedding meetings via Skype. But, let’s wait for the new measures after April 6 to plan it.

So please stay safe, please stay home and let’s keep in touch.

With much Love,
