There is no more beautiful turn of the season than that of Summer to Autumn, and nowhere is this more true than the stunning Lake District. From September the light starts to get softer and the trees start to turn their leaves from bright greens to soft yellows and reds, it is a stunning time of year for photographs and a beautiful time of year to get married.
Lake District Autumn Wedding
The grounds of Lake District Wedding Hotel Broadoaks, are extensive and they turn with the season and nestle into the surrounding Lake District scenery making a stunning backdrop for any celebration at the hotel. Weddings in autumn are becoming more popular not only because the scenery is beautiful but also because after the summer wedding rush the availability of suppliers for the wedding is easier and guests are more likely to attend as you won’t have clashed with their summer holiday plans.
Autumn also has some great celebrations if you want to tie your wedding into a Halloween or Firework night theme, this is the season for you to choose for your wedding. Whatever you reason for getting married in Autumn here are some thought and ideas on making your autumnal wedding truly special for you:
Be mindful of the weather – While the weather can be changeable in the Lake District even in high summer, it is more so in the autumn months. September and October can change from bright hot summer days, to showers very quickly so if you are planning on getting married outside ensure you are happy with your indoor option in case you need to use it. Autumn also offers opportunities not available in the summer as the nights get darker quicker fireworks and bonfires in the grounds become very possible as you don’t have to stay up too late for a dark sky.
Decorate in Autumnal Colours – Autumn colours of glowing reds, oranges and deep purples work really well for weddings and contrast beautifully with a white or cream wedding dress. Flowers are deeper and more luscious in Autumn and you could even use pumpkins as place settings for your guests. Rustic wood signs look great against this type of backdrop, candles add that extra depth and providing toned in throws or rugs for guests can add a pop of unexpected colour throughout the ceremony or evening reception.
Quirky Food Options in Autumn – Getting married in the Autumn in the Lake District makes for a very cosy vibe, and there is nothing nicer than proving food and drinks that reflect the wedding and the season. A hot chocolate bar for guest help themselves later in the evening would be a fun way to bring in a cosy vibe, perhaps traditional snack served such as hot dogs or baked potatoes could be served as a late-night snack if you are having fireworks.
