Amy & Josh - October '23

Updated: 4 days ago

Autumn has officially arrived with the first wedding of October, and we’re here for it! 

We often advise that people should embrace the season that their wedding day falls in, and for good reason! Everything is naturally more cohesive when you are led by your surroundings. Amy and Josh did a fantastic job of pulling together Autumn inspired colour palettes, menus and florals. 

They married in the Main Barn with burnt orange drapes and the warm glow of giant decorative bulbs overhead, framing them as they exchanged vows. Amy’s dress was a princess gown with plenty of sparkle that caught the light in the barn spectacularly, both during the ceremony and while on the dance floor in the evening. Her bridesmaids all wore different dresses in the same burnt sienna tone.

Amy and her bridesmaids carried bouquets of locally grown, seasonal garden flowers in the most dazzling array of warm autumnal colours. Beautiful dahlias and chrysanthemums were arranged with dried seed heads and trailing amaranthus. The bouquets were placed alongside special photographs after the ceremony for a gorgeous display. 

After drinks and canapes with the newlyweds on the lawn, guests were invited to take their seats in the Woodshed ahead of speeches. An abundance of greenery and drop lights were hung from the beams above and tables were decorated with burnt orange table runners and soft candle light. When selecting dining equipment, it is a great idea to consider using cutlery, crockery and glassware as further decoration for the tables. Amy and Josh achieved this with large decorative charger plates, cut crystal glassware and coloured napkins, meaning that other decorations could be kept to a minimum. 

A wedding breakfast menu that included oven roasted tomato soup, sweet potato and harissa gnocchi and sticky toffee pudding had a deliciously Autumnal feel to it. In the evening there was a tower of cheese to be enjoyed rather than a traditional sweet wedding cake which went down incredibly well with guests visiting from the dancefloor. 

In the evening, those who didn’t fancy cutting shapes on the dance floor, made their way to the bar for an Old Fashioned or Margarita and relaxed on the leather furniture suites that carried the autumnal colour scheme through to the bar. 

However, right from their first visit to Curds Hall Barn at the beginning of their planning journey, there was only ever one non-negotiable aspect to the big day - a bouncy castle for Darcy! Little Darcy stole the show, as predicted! She was so beautiful in a little suit that matched her dad’s and did a fantastic job of presenting the rings during the wedding ceremony and handing out confetti for the photographs and, of course, some incredible bouncy castle moves! 

Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Rudling-Harvey! We wish the two of you and little Darcy all the happiness in the world together.
