Look out of the window and you are surrounded by the most amazing shades of red at this time of year.  Never has there been a greater choice of colour than now.  Think of reflecting the changing colours of the leaves out side to give you the perfect palette of reds for you wedding.

Combine this with fruits that are so bountiful at this time of year and add dramatic dashes of colour from blackberries and apples to cranberries and crab-apples.  Use these  in abundance to add warmth, texture and depth to your flowers, tables and venue dressing.

Carve out the centres of rosy red apples and replace them with tea lights for a rustic feel that is perfect for a natural but stylish wedding and kind to your budget too!

Or float your tea lights on a bed of watery cranberries!

Or even collect and fill jars with herbs and berries for effective but dramatic lighting.

This wine chiller looks amazing and for your reception there are so many cocktails that will compliment this colour palette including my favourite, The Cosmopolitan, a delicious blend of cranberry juice, lime, vodka and Cointreau.
