Moodboard: October Family

October family portraits finish off this month’s set of mood boards. We love the colours and locations used this month.

Again, this is the perfect opportunity for families to get some beautiful portraits outside in that hugely desirable golden light. This could be playing in a local park, visiting a local pick-your-own pumpkin patch, taking a stroll around town or just enjoying some last minute sunshine in the back garden. 

These autumnal portraits make a great addition to any family’s home with all the beautiful warm colours on display. Not to mention, a great alternative to the family summer holiday snap!


Moodboard: October Weddings

October weddings are lovely. They have that wonderful golden light, red and orange tints and of course, the iconic pumpkin and autumn leaves to play with. 

We love how October weddings symbolise the change from summer weddings to winter weddings. This brings the opportunity for so many lovely new touches for a big day – from tweed waistcoats to deep red and orange florals to barn venues.

Autumn is also a time for wedding food to shift focus. We see less light nibbles and more sit down roast dinners, fewer cocktails and more hot drink stations and, obviously, the iconic autumnal dessert – the toffee apple makes an appearance. 

Speaking of autumnal icons, October is the perfect time to include pumpkins in a wedding day. Of course, they could be included in the wedding menu but could also be used in the decor – from aisle markers to “Mr and Mrs” signs, the opportunities are endless. 


Moodboard: October Engagements

October engagements are wonderfully colourful and filled with such beautiful, warm light. We love the feel of October pre-wedding shoots – the way it’s still possible for couples to wear thinner layers, but there’s also the opportunity to get some really cosy images too. 

There are lots of opportunities for October couples to get some beautiful images. You could suggest that your clients dress in wonderfully warm hues or checked shirts to bring out those lovely autumnal colours, a cosy blanket could become a seasonal prop, you could encourage a stroll amongst the changing trees or even capture a kiss under falling leaves (nature’s confetti).


Moodboard: September Weddings

September weddings are so beautiful. They hold the anticipation of Autumn while still grasping onto the warmth and light of those long summer days, as well as the start of those beautiful rich autumn colours. 

We love the earthiness of September weddings. Natural, earthy colours, for example; cream, sage, blush and lavender all look stunning when mixed with deeper, richer hues like burgundy, blue and violet. 

We also can’t get enough of this natural floral style. We love the unstructured bouquets and the use of soft blooms such as hydrangeas and garden roses mixed with festoons of greenery; like ivy or eucalyptus. 

September is also a month with a slightly bohemian feel to it. Say hello to boho updos and plaits, simple floral hair accessories and delicate dresses. We love the idea of combining sleeveless dresses with delicate lace – merging the lasting summer warmth with the chillier evenings. 

What is your favourite part of September weddings?
