BACK TO TOP

Timeless and elegant are two words that only begin to describe the summer wedding of Rebecca & Kurt and Vue de Monde. With superstar wedding planners, minor mishaps (like a bridesmaid being MIA due to giving birth the day prior) to the hot Melbourne weather, the outcome was an amelioration of special, thoughtful and beautiful moments. Rebecca shares her experience and wisdom for any bride planning a wedding!

We would thoroughly recommend couples consider a wedding planner, and particularly Will&Jac. Like a lot of couples these days, we both work really hard and didn’t want to spend our precious time off visiting 101 vendors. It also meant on the day both of us, and also my parents, could relax and enjoy the day knowing that everything would be perfect and if it wasn’t we wouldn’t know about it!! In addition, they helped us save money, by not only recommending the best vendors (not necessarily the most expensive) but also making sure contracts and prices were locked in early.

Today we have rounded up five of our favourite autumn weddings that have stolen our hearts. Pop on the kettle and get ready to be inspired by these five unique weddings that have a couple of special things in common – they are each a celebration of young love and of all things autumn.

Rich rusty toned leaves, deep grey skies and the cosiness of candlelight and fires – is it any wonder we adore Autumn?

When we first saw the magnificent red gown of today’s bride, we were already smitten, but combining that deep marsala tone with beautiful Autumnal colours? That calls for a celebration!

Getting married in autumn? We hope you are filled with inspiration after diving into these awesome autumn weddings with us today.

Colourful Melbourne Rooftop Wedding - Polka Dot Bride

Elegant and simple – yet colourful was what Maddy and Sam’s wedding day was all about. Celebrated on the deck at Circa, The Prince, many elements included were by the creative and talented Maddy. Personalised elements showed their love for the family and friends who shared the day with them – as the bride imparts a little wisdom about planning a wedding!

Make sure you take 20 minutes to go and be together as husband and wife and take it all in. The day goes so quickly and you are so busy talking to all your guests that you can forget why you’re actually there. The main thing is to have fun, enjoy the day, enjoy the process and try not to stress too much. Thats what bridesmaids and groomsmen are for!
