The Côte d’Azur has more than enough surprises in store for you. An idyllic spot, bathed in sunshine and surrounded by the sea, the atmosphere is conducive to dreaming. Why not celebrate the happiest day of your life here? As well as celebrating love, all you have to do is let yourself be carried away by the gentle sound of the waves and the breeze. Every season here is a feast for the eyes, but autumn is something special. It’s a season like no other. What could be more elegant than to succumb to the charm of autumn colours, and what could be more original for a wedding? So the question is obvious: what about an autumn wedding? Here are a few ideas and inspirations to help you take the plunge and enjoy an autumn wedding on the Côte d’Azur.
The landscape as a source of inspiration
In the image of lush green nature, opt for the country style. The eternal white, synonymous with purity, can be combined with warmer colours such as red, orange or brown. On the guests’ tables, a few splashes of colour on the centrepieces, bouquets of flowers or accessories such as napkins will add diversity. Two warm colours combined with white make good combinations that will easily recall your theme. Add freshness with vegetation or foliage. This is nature at its best at your wedding. So opt for an open space, with a tent or marquee to blend in nicely with the surroundings.
Romantic photographs of the bride and groom
The beauty of the Côte d’Azur makes for some incredible shots. A trip to the edge of the forest is a great way to develop the autumnal spirit. At the very heart of the flora and fauna, with leaves scattered by the wind, taking photos will bring you joy and happiness in this poetic and natural location. Your photos will be imbued with the autumn glow. The photo session will be a real asset to your wedding. Once again, to make the moment even more festive, a throw of fallen leaves is an interesting idea for taking photos. Instead of the traditional throwing of flowers or other ornaments, the leaves will frame you in colour.
A menu with autumnal flavours
Presentation can also be seen on the plate, so why not make some reference to the surrounding decoration? Use seasonal fruit and vegetables or the colours of the season to decorate your dishes. There are also a number of ways to inspire your theme. You could, for example, present your starter in an empty pumpkin or arrange chestnuts at the ends of plates as decorative assortments. The possibilities are endless. Let your imagination run wild. Your taste buds and those of your guests will be transported all the more by the taste, and the visuals will be all the more astonishing. The autumn theme will be reflected in every detail. And don’t forget the showpiece, the pièce montée. Your wedding cake can take any shape you like. With its autumnal colours, it’s sure to delight your guests.
Hanging lights to brighten up your evening
As you know, the sun sets early in autumn. If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, lighting is essential. Hanging lights will allow you to enjoy the sunset without paying any attention to it, because you won’t have to take shelter when night falls. What’s more, they’ll brighten up your evening. If you prefer the comfort of an interior, a rustic-style room with a retro feel will make the most of hanging lights like garlands. They will illuminate the exposed stonework of the old building more effectively. Finally, a firework display is an option to make up for the night that has come too quickly. It’s also a great way to add a little extra festivity to your wedding.
Whether your wedding takes place in autumn or has an autumn theme, take advantage of these ideas. Your wedding will be unforgettable in the magnificent landscape of the Côte d’Azur. The Mediterranean coast and its mysteries are yours for a wedding that will be talked about for years to come.
