Autumn Marquee Weddings
If you are still hoping to put your wedding date in the diary this year, but feel that June, July or August don’t quite give you enough time to put all your plans into place, then how about an Autumn marquee wedding. We have been providing frame marquee hire for Devon and Cornwall weddings for many years and September/October are great months for a wedding and there are plenty of reasons why!
Devon and Cornwall obviously attract many visitors during the peak summer months but as the large number of holiday makers head home at the end of the school holidays, September and October are rather special months for a marquee wedding. There are quieter beaches, more accommodation options, changing autumnal landscapes and beautiful warm tones that work brilliantly in photos. Plus we often get to enjoy a late Indian summer which means plenty of sunshine!
Whilst many people home in on May/June as a preferred wedding month, as wedding marquee providers we love the start of Autumn as the evenings begin to draw in more. It means that lighting can play a big part in your evening reception, creating a whole new look to your marquee. Fairy lights, starcloth linings, coloured up lighters and lanterns are great for adding ambience, something that can’t be enjoyed until much later in the evening during the nights when it doesn’t get dark until almost 10pm.
If you are concerned about the temperature dropping in the evening then we can supply thermostatically controlled marquee heaters which will keep the marquee lovely and toasty and warm. This also means that everyone will gather in the marquee making sure that your evening will be full of atmosphere and fun.
There is lots of fun to be had with decorating your marquee as well. Of course, you can choose whatever colour or theme you like for your marquee, but if you want to take inspiration from the season then warm colours can bring an original look to your marquee. Flowers, foliage and branches are great for adding colour and interest and an Autumn wedding works really well whether you are thinking of a rustic or luxurious autumnal theme (take a look at our pinterest for a bit of inspiration).
Your wedding food is just as important and many Devon and Cornwall wedding caterers pride themselves on using local and seasonal produce. So at this time of year there is an abundance of really tasty, quality autumnal produce, perfect for a wedding feast!
So why not give it some thought (but not for too long!)…make a date in your diary for an Autumn marquee wedding.
