Wedding style: Autumn delight
There's a chill in the air and we're feeling the crunch of fallen leaves under our feet, which means Autumn has arrived.

Magical Ways to Include Even More Disney in Your Wedding Day
Nothing says happy ever after quite like a Disney inspired wedding, whether you opt for an Alice in Wonderland theme, or add a subtle sprinkle of magic to your day. Channel your inner Cinderella in a pair of (almost) glass slippers, or go all out in a gown inspired by the Disney princesses. The magic even reaches your wedding day transportation, thanks to elegant horse drawn carriages, ensuring you arrive in style, with no pumpkins in sight. If you don’t fancy a Disney themed aesthetic, you can incorporate Walt’s world by including quotes from Aladdin in your readings, or getting down on the dance floor to some of Disney’s biggest hits. Cakes are a fantastic way to make a nod to Disney too, be it with a cute topper, or desserts decorated with all of your favourite characters.
How to decorate a village hall
Deciding how to decorate your venue is an exciting yet daunting prospect. Different types of venues will require different decorations. If you are having your reception at a manor house, you could add details to complement the existing décor, whereas you have a blank canvas when it comes to decorating a marquee or barn, but how do you decorate a village hall? Village halls are perfect for holding your wedding reception; they tend to be very spacious with high ceilings, which are great for adding details to. However, with all that space, it can be difficult to envisage how you want it to look. To give you decorating ideas, stylist Lindsey Hunter shares how she styled St Boswells village hall in the Scottish Borders.
