We are now officially in September which means that autumn will soon be upon us. It is one of our most favourite times of year for many reasons, not least the beautiful rich colours which adorn the season. It’s a time of bright orange butternut squash soup, the golden reds and yellows that set landscapes alight, the deep rich hues of warming autumnal puddings and the deep cosy colours that our interiors take on throughout autumn and eventually winter.
After this endless winter, I think we could all do with a bit of summer sunshine so we have put together a little summer mood board. We love everything that summer has to offer. Not just the potentially great weather but also the food, colours and flowers.
Food comes in all forms during the summer months. From fresh crispy salads to barbequed meats and fish and even to fresh desserts, it’s such a delicious few months. Some of our favourites are featured in the mood board above. Just look at that gorgeous salmon!
The colours are also a favourite of ours this time of year. All the bright colours come out to play and look so fresh and vibrant in the abundance of natural light. Not to mention the garden coming into its own. This is the time of huge blooms, armfuls of wildflowers, birds flitting from tree to tree and summer houses being dusted and brought back out from hibernation.
Who couldn’t love summer?
February is a mixed bag for many of us. The days are still a bit dark and gloomy. The rain is still coming down in torrents. However, the promise of Spring is making its way into the air.
January weddings are so dramatic – from the colours and flavours, to the dress and the weather.
We love the rich, dark hues that are mixed with sparkling white at this time of year. It’s such a classic look and yet ever so glamorous.
We also love how beautiful, rich food comes out at this time of year. We’re thinking gourmet roast dinners, rich hot chocolate bars and decadent doughnut desserts.
January is also the perfect excuse for a beautiful, sparkling gown. Take inspiration from Frozen, Nanny McPhee and Cinderella for some truly stunning winter dresses.
Finally, even though January weddings have to cope with more moody weather, we love the atmosphere this provides. Steamy, iced up windows, dramatic clouds and torrential rain can give the big day all sorts of magic, especially when it comes to photos.
