Georgia & Joel - October '22

A beautiful October day felt all the more autumnal as winds blew a constant stream of orange and yellow leaf confetti from the lime trees for Georgia and Joel’s big day. 

Georgia’s flower girls, bridesmaids and her beloved dog Benji walked the aisle ahead of her and her very proud dad. Georgia was fabulous in her Camilla Brides dress with a stunning beaded open back, headpiece and veil. 

Despite the blustery Autumn day, the sun shone and the skies were blue for Georgia and Joel allowing them to host their drink reception on the lawn. Giant Mr and Mrs letters were lit up and placed in the Cartshed alongside drinks and an acoustic band played as guests mingled and enjoyed canapes. Children were treated to The Wedding Nanny’s bell tent full of toys and activities which went down well during speeches too.

With weddings taking place in the cooler parts of the year, we often need to take lighting into consideration. Obviously, the nights are drawing in resulting in fewer daylight hours. This can impact a wedding day timeline but as long as we have awareness, it doesn’t have to work against us. 

It is a good idea to discuss lighting and timings with your photographer anyway, but even more so when you are planning a wedding with fewer daylight hours. You may have some specific photos that you would like to achieve in the light - group shots or confetti shots perhaps, and you may also wish to chase the sunset for those mantelpiece shots of the two of you as newlyweds. Your Coordinator can take these factors into consideration when suggesting a running order for the day for you and will support you to achieve this on the day by flexing the timeline where possible. 

As well as photography, it is also worth considering lighting as part of your decor scheme. Adding decorative lighting can make a significant impact on the atmosphere of a room for a relatively small portion of your budget compared with other decor. It is particularly powerful in the naturally darker Woodshed. Lighting can take many different forms and varying the type of lighting can have a similar effect as combining textures within floral work would.  

Georgia and Joel combined festoon lighting, candle light and lit feature props to incredible effect for their autumnal wedding. The festoon lighting was a beautiful decorative feature during the daylight and added to the romantic atmosphere in the evening. Candle light and more festoons transformed the Woodshed for dining - bathing guests in a warm glow. 

The cosy autumnal feel of their day was enhanced with a sharing-board-style wedding breakfast including fragrant pulled beef and sticky toffee pudding. In the evening, The Bucket List pulled up outside the front of the barn under the festoon lights to serve topped chip buckets for guests to enjoy by the fire pit. 

A fantastic live band played into the evening and the dance floor filled following Georgia and Joel’s first dance. A great party atmosphere (and a few cocktails) was enjoyed by all!

Georgia and Joel really embraced the season to incredible effect. We wish you and your family lots of love and happiness for the future.
