A Quintessentially Autumnal Wedding – Jen & Tom

Fulham Palace boasts a number of beautiful green spaces perfect for summer weddings, however the versatile grounds are stunning in all seasons.

Jen and Tom wed in October 2015 at Fulham Palace – a quintessentially autumnal wedding. Autumn is the perfect time of year to complement the changing colours of the leaves outside with red and orange tones within the Palace. Our fantastic supplier Effect Event can work with you to enhance the Palace’s homely features and a glowing archway on arrival makes an atmospheric entrance!

Here comes the Bride…

The Tudor Courtyard is the perfect place for arrival photos as the car can draw right in front of the Palace. Greeted by a little drizzle, we were ready and waiting with umbrellas to ward off the rain. We think these perhaps unexpected wedding photos make for a great alternative to sunny shots! Jen’s bouquet was a beautiful array of orange tones, designed by Helen Cranmer floral design.

Simple styling is often the most effective, we loved this sign on arrival – a perfect way to start the day!

Married in the Great Hall, it was time for some confetti shots outside! Little did Jen & Tom know, the Best Man unveiled a pumpkin as his own unique “confetti” which produced some rather fitting photos for an October wedding. (No Pumpkins were harmed in the making of this blog post).

Time for the Wedding Breakfast in the Chaplain’s garden marquee, it looked like a warm haven in it’s slightly damp surroundings. We love the lanterns Jen and Tom chose to line the pathway; they looked fabulous glowing in the evening light!

Formalities finished, it was time to head back inside the Palace for cocktail hour and the first dance! Cocktail hour is the perfect way to set the tone for the evening party and it is also a lovely way to greet evening guests and make them feel welcome! A little action from behind the bar…

Thank you to Jen & Tom for letting us share their photos from their big day! We wish them all the best for their future together and finish with one of our favourite shots and some wedding inspiration for you… A heart shaped sparkler! Certainly hope to see more of these at the Palace. What an amazing photo… all images from Jen & Tom’s day are courtesy of Leo Hoang photography.
