While spring still holds the crown for the most popular season for Australian weddings, Autumn tends to always be a close second.
Autumn weddings tend to have a feeling of intimacy, nostalgia, warmth, and comfort.
Shorter days are upon us as the temperature drops and we prepare to welcome some cooler weather.
Some venues also have more attractive rates in autumn (compared to spring or summer) while if you consider a date closer to winter, you might enjoy even lower rates.
Trending linen hire and table decor
Oatmeal weave tablecloths
Textural elements are key to creating that warm and comforting autumnal theme.
We love starting with our weave tablecloths as the base for your setting, and building upon that.
Add layers of texture with our Dove Chiffon table runners, like we did for this beautiful wedding at The Wine Collective in the Macedon Ranges.
Mulberry velvet napkins
Velvet is a seductive, romantic fabric that adds drama, texture, and dimension to your table setting.

Worried your setting is now too dark?
Add some ivory to lighten up your decor, or consider injecting a complementary pastel into your colour palette for smaller decor (think napkins, plates, or place settings and menus).
An unmissable characteristic of an autumn wedding is earthy, natural, and warm tones.
These can usually be dictated by seasonal florals which helps set your colour palette.
Whimsical, vintage flair
Boho charm mixed with vintage chic with a dash of romance: whimsical wedding themes have become a dreamy trend set to soar in 2020.
Think pampas grass, luxe texture, and vintage tones like amber and copper.
