With Autumn well and truly here, designing your own wedding website with Wedding Hand has never been easier, should you be considering a autumnal wedding.

With the leaves falling off the trees and golden, late afternoon sunsets, it is more apparent what a lovely time of year it is to have a wedding. With the right venue, and a little imagination the setting can be perfect.

Imagine a wedding venue with established grounds for photos and a cosy interior with a roaring open fires, this would be so inviting for you and your guests….even magical!

The rustic wedding is still as popular as ever with an English Heritage look, think tweeds, tartans, stags and autumnal colours. Colours that spring to mind are Honey Gold’s, Burnt Oranges, Chocolate Browns and Burgundy Wine.

With Halloween falling in the Autumn, Pumpkins and decorations are widely available and add that special WOW. Think outside the box by adding lit pumpkins on steps to the venue or on driveways even as the table centrepiece. Halloween doesn’t just mean scary, it can look magical even whimsical. Autumn makes the forests look enchanting so photos with falling leaves even wellies and candles would look fab-u-lous!!!



Ok, so you could go for the spooky theme for your wedding at this time of the year too. Using Blacks, Golds, Coppers and glitter a spooky theme would come alive. Having a spooky wedding theme would add fun and mystery to your big day. That’s the nice thing with themes- you can take it as far as you choose. At the right wedding venue with age and history you can have ghost stories at the end of the night or a ghost walk or tour. This could make your wedding stand out and be totally different from the norm!!!!

Wedding Hand suggest you take a look at Muncaster Castle. Visually this wedding venue looks the part for a Halloween wedding! It also has many reported sightings of some of their many resident ghosts. Even the ghost of Henry VI who is said to still walk the corridors at night.

Other sighting include a young girl who was hanged at the castle and a spooky figures has also been seen caring a head under his arm in the castle.

Thomas Skelton also haunts the wedding venue, who was known as Tom the Fool the Century jester, who led castle guests to their death by walking them into quick-sand.
