Think autumn and a rich vibrant colour palette of burnt oranges, deep reds and yellows usually springs to mind. But what if you prefer softer more pastel shades? This fall shoot at Delbury Hall is packed with pale, light and airy wedding style inspiration in pretty corals and delicate blues with champagne hints.

Delbury Hall near Ludlow in South Shropshire is a beautiful Georgian mansion set in 80 acres of landscaped parkland. The mellow stonework of the bridal barn formed the perfect backdrop for this softer coloured autumn wedding shoot styled and photographed by fabulous Tanya Flannagan Photography.



Persephone Floral Tiara

A lace bodice dress with a plunge neckline and floaty pale gold chiffon skirt gave our model bride a soft romantic look. Her warm wedding styling was accentuated with the Persephone Tiara. This exquisite pale gold floral headband drew the eye from the dress to the bride’s face and hair.

Persephone Floral Tiara Hetty Bridal Headpiece


Hetty Gold Lace Headpiece

The statement Hetty bridal headpiece was the perfect choice for the second dress. The shape and design of this champagne coloured lace vine echoed the feature low back and lace edged train. Both wedding looks were completed with real pearl and pale gold crystal bridal jewellery. 

Autumn wedding inspiration

The rustic tables were decorated with Eucalyptus foliage interspersed with jars of pretty sunset coloured flowers and tiny vintage bottles containing single stems of hips and berries.

A macramé backdrop offset the blue marbled cake decorated with rich orange flowers and soft pink grasses. This autumn coloured floral theme was carried over into the country themed stationery suite and favour cookies.

The groom wore an elegant brown tweed suit. He linked in with the bride’s beautiful pale gold wedding headpieces and bridal jewellery by adding a champagne coloured tie and pocket square.

An autumnal themed horsebox bar was the perfect finishing touch offering refreshments.
