Kate and Ali’s wonderfully autumnal wedding at Notley Barn in Oxfordshire, with Amanda Karen Photography

Autumn wedding styling isn’t all about the pine cones, you know. I get it: they’re cute little things, with a dash of childhood nostalgia attached… but I think after years upon years of pine cone wedding styling they’re about to be pushed from the top spot – by the humble gourd!

So many wedding traditions and styling ideas start in the US and gradually make their way over here. With all the budding excitement of Hallowe’en they start their pumpkins early over there… and the mini versions (gourds is a catch-all term for anything pumpkinesque, in my simple mind!) are colourful, cute and charming as hell. I love how Kate and Ali used them to style their day.

Kate and Ali got married at Notley Tythe Barn in Oxfordshire with a family friend working as a set designer lending her creativity and a very talented Mother of the Bride making the wedding cake for the happy couple. The bride and bridesmaids look stunning with bouquets in pastel tones and dresses in shades of dusky pink; copper and bronze accent colours hint at the fabulous styling of the reception venue and capture the spirit of autumn days.

  • Blood diamonds - how much do you really know? I ask because I really didn't. I'd have shopped for something with a certification, and before reading this I would have thought 'conflict-free' covered everything.
