As each new year arrives, more and more new and exciting ideas hit the wedding scene and there’s always some that seriously stand out and get picked up by brides and grooms the world over.

Hey, if an idyllic Italian destination wedding is good enough for the gorgeous George Clooney, then who are we to disagree?!

It’s London Fashion Week so all eyes are fixed on the S/S15 catwalks, however back on the High Street A/W is the main event and there’s some style stories that are perfect for you and your wedding.

 

One of the biggest trends for the autumn season is one that will surprise you! Pretty candy colours have long been seen as spring-only shades, however nothing would brighten up a bleak, breezy fall morning like a dash of colour and soft pastels and romantic nude hues are a key trend this autumn/winter. Nude, blush, baby blue, soft grey shades, lilac, mint green are combined with neutral shades or teamed with black for a stylish statement.
