New Things For Autumn

Can you believe that it’s autumn already? We can’t quite bring ourselves to start the countdown to Christmas yet, especially when the days are as beautiful as they are at the moment. So, let’s not start feeling festive too soon and instead, let’s concentrate on what’s new and fabulous this autumn.

Firstly, Brides magazine came to life early in October with Brides The Show, a new wedding event in the calendar and my goodness, we loved it. Lots of our amazing Laura Loves suppliers were there and we’re so proud of Miss Bush Bridalwear who walked away with the top prize for the best stand in the show. Miss Bush channelled glamour and beauty in their ‘Boudicca’ inspired stand. It was an absolute show-stopper, crowded all weekend. You might have seen the beautiful images from the ‘Boudicca’ shoot on Love My Dress and the behind the scenes film of the shoot is definitely worth watching. The stand and the shoot were a perfect reflection of everything that’s so special about Miss Bush – passion, creativity, style and vision. Huge congratulations to the Miss Bush team from everyone at Fetcham Park.

There are lots of shows and events on this autumn but please get your diary out for us. We’re throwing open the doors to Fetcham Park on Sunday 3rd November between 2pm and 5pm. We would love to see you and we can guarantee you a warm welcome, whatever the weather!

We definitely need to tell you that designs from Australian bridal label, Johanna Johnson, can now be found at Browns Bride in London. These glamorous gowns have a 1920s Hollywood feel to them that we can certainly imagine looking absolutely a-list at Fetcham Park. Whilst we’re talking about Browns Bride, don’t forget to take a look attheir list of trunk shows that are coming up this autumn. Reem Acra and Vera Wanganyone?

As the evenings get longer, we’re going to be using our time by the fire to get creative with The Art of Modern Calligraphy, one of the fabulous online courses from Skillsharethat will make invitations, cards, tags and everything look that much prettier. Who can resist the opportunity to buy some new stationery? Certainly not us!

Whilst we’re talking about buying ourselves the odd little treat or two, have you seenBurberry’s new nail polish range? The autumn/winter colours are frankly gorgeous and would brighten up a dull day perfectly. Something to think about if you’re writing your Christmas list early this year?

Autumn is all about ‘mists and mellow fruitfulness’ and we are certainly thinking about fruits this year, mostly inspired by these amazing new style cakes all featuring fruit in various guises. We can’t quite decide on our favourite but we certainly want to try making the Icebox Lemon Cake at the first opportunity!

Lastly, we have something very new for autumn and that is our Perfect Wedding Magazine ‘Reader Recognition Award’. We’re so touched to have been honoured in this way and would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for us. You can read all about the other worthy winners on the Perfect Wedding website.

Do enjoy the delights of autumn won’t you? Apple crumble, toffee apples and hot chocolate with mini marshmallows are, in our opinion, absolute essentials.
