Summer may be trying to hold on, but we can’t deny it anymore. Autumn is well and truly here and the leaves are starting to colour.
Despite the fact that autumn signifies that winter is coming, it’s actually one of our favourite times of the year. The differences in colours with the afternoon glow of the sun make for some beautiful scenery. And of course some beautiful wedding photos.
If you’re thinking of getting married in the autumn months, we already know that March is the most popular month to get married in so many of you likely are, here are some of our favourite autumn real weddings to get your wedding planning inspo going.
This autumn-inspired wedding
Florence and Carlos had more than 80 friends and family fly in from the Philippines for their autumn-themed wedding. They chose the traditional colours of autumn, red, orange and yellow, for their boutonniere and bouquet blooms, with mixes of the more traditional whites and pinks.
Florence looked amazing in a fit-and-flare gown from designer Rajo Laurel, and the boys even matched the autumn theme with their colourful socks, despite actually going for a basketball vibe.
We love how this couple paired the autumn colours with the brighter teal of the bridesmaids, making the oranges stand out and complement the dresses really well.
But our favourite feature has to be the three-tiered naked cake, which was made up of white chocolate, dark chocolate and coffee flavours. The perfect flavours to warm you up on an autumn evening.
This native South African affair
Despite South Africa not having specific seasons, autumn is still considered to be at the same time as it is in Australia. Which is a bonus for us because we love Anina and Rudi’s South African wedding.
The South African pair who now lives in Brisbane first met in Cape Town and headed back over the Indian Ocean for their special day, which was made up of stunning native blooms. Their choice of flowers such as proteas and fynbos blooms made their reception a stylists dream, with florals and light features hanging from the ceiling and decking out each table display.

We love their choice of pinks and yellows for the autumn vibe, teamed perfectly with the orange glow of their lighting features and native greenery.
Have you asked a friend or family member to do a reading during your ceremony?
But our favourite part is the use of autumn lighting for their photos. Anina’s pre-ceremony photos perfectly complement the darker tones of autumn while their shots after the wedding really work with the afternoon light.
This Orthodox wedding event
Mariana and Nick held their ceremony, reception and wedding after-party before staying up to watch the sun come up the morning after they tied the knot. Talk about romantic!
This wedding event featured Mariana’s culture with a Greek Orthodox ceremony, before being mixed in with the Aussie bush charm of Nick’s heritage.
Their wedding invitations were a gorgeous combination of orange and pinks, while their florals also included lots of autumn burgundy notes.
Another couple who made the most of the autumn light, our favourite part of this wedding has to be Mariana and Nick’s exit among their family and friends, sparklers and the greenery and natural beams of their reception centre.
This rustic country celebration
Georgina and Andrew jumped on board the autumn-theme without actually having an autumn themed wedding. The bridesmaids wore burgundy dresses which worked perfectly with the light pinks of autumn and their floral bouquet. They also opted for gold as their metallic colour, fitting in perfectly with the autumn orange.
We love the flower settings and archway this couple used, as well as clear white they opted for in their reception to complement the bright mix of colours.
But our favourite feature has to be the fruit features on their stunning drip cake.
This luxury themed wedding
If you’re looking for autumn wedding inspiration then this one certainly takes the cake. Gie and Cy’s wedding in the Philippines is absolutely themed to a tee and we can’t quite decide what we love most about it.
Before the wedding had even started they began with gorgeous themed invitations featuring autumn leaves. The day then starts with oranges, yellows, reds and pinks in the lush oversized bouquet for Gie’s oversized bouquet and the more delicate bouquets of the bridesmaids. The bridesmaids wore autumn floral robes before pairing them with light pink dresses. Even the groomsmen went all out with matching autumn themed socks and underwear and amazing patterned ties.
The ceremony was decked out with autumn foliage but we think our favourite part has to be the reception decor.
The reception featured thousands of autumn leaves coming down in foliage from the ceiling, candelabras to add a luxe touch, naked light globes from warm lighting, autumn leaves adorning the cake with a wooden log stand.
And of course, fireworks to top the night off. This wedding is one we can’t get enough of!
This bohemian celebration
This gorgeous wedding has all we want for an autumn wedding plus the practicality. Jaya and Justin chose a boho theme for their big day and went all out with their bohemian inspiration.
Jaya’s two daughters wore stunning feather hairpieces while Jaya herself worse a gorgeous luxe piece. This wedding also featured natural greenery and more hints of burgundy in the bridesmaid’s floral patterned dresses. Bronze features also made an appearance throughout, in Justin’s bow tie as well as the groomsmen and reception. We also love the practicality here, with Jaya and her two bridesmaids all wearing long sleeves to protect them from the autumn chill.
But our favourite part of this wedding isn’t actually the theme. It’s the fact that Justin gave Jaya’s two daughters a ring each and promised to take care of all three of them. And if that doesn’t warm your heart then we don’t know what will!
