Adapt Your Wedding to Become an Autumn Affair.

A common misconception is that only Spring and Summer are the right times for a wedding. They come with a more likely dry wedding day and your guests don’t need to worry about bringing an extra layer to keep warm. Whilst this is all true, it’s actually just as popular to have a wedding in the Autumn and Winter months and some would even say a better time to do it. Not only is it less busy, the likelihood of suppliers is greater and your potential venue could be available. With all of this in mind, we take a look into how you can adapt your wedding to suit the changing season!

Color Scheme:
Whilst we encourage soft, pastel and sometimes even bright tones for a summer wedding, in line with the sunshine, when it comes to Autumn it’s all about making the environment feel cozy and warm, even if outside it’s freezing cold. Deep Reds and Burgundy hues will make the space feel somewhat smaller and more enclosed to give the vibe you are trying to create. Incorporating tweed and checked patterns will provide the same effect and add dimension to your decorations and style. With copper becoming such a huge trend year-round, adding it into your Autumnal theme in some way will bring an element of elegance to your big day.

Florals are likely to be huge part of any wedding but with the changing seasons comes a changing floral arrangement. Whilst in the summer you may see lilies, sunflowers or daisies, in the autumn, not only do the colors of the leaves change but also the colors and style of the bouquet. Again, deep reds take center stage here with warm oranges in the style of roses, hydrangea and chrysanthemums being combined together to create stunning arrangements for the bride, bridesmaid or center pieces at the table – you could also throw in a few pine cones for a truly rustic, autumnal feel.

Keeping Warm:
Whilst we think that outdoor Autumn weddings are a thing of beauty, we can appreciate that being cold all day, may not be. Don’t worry, we’ve got this covered too! In adding simple heaters throughout the marquee, you can control the temperature throughout the venue, no matter what time of the day. If people are cold during the meal switch them on, if they are dancing so hard they are starting to break a sweat, just flick them off. Also tying into the cozy and warm atmosphere, bringing in large blankets and cushions for your guests, giving them the option to wrap up if they need it. Not only that but tying them into your color scheme, brings another area of decoration.

Rustic Décor:
The idea of an autumnal, rustic wedding comes from the décor that you include throughout the day. Think leaves, fruit center pieces, pine cone name settings and wooden sign posts to name a few. Taking the nature outside and bringing it inside your marquee can instantly transform it from plain and simple to an enchanting autumn woodland, perfect for eating wholesome food and enjoying warm, mulled wine!

Although saying goodbye to Summer is a sad affair for many, welcome the Autumn and take advantage of easier wedding planning and potentially cheaper prices by embracing the weather and adapting your big day to match!


A massive thank you for providing an amazing and unique tent for our wedding. We were both so glad we went with the stretch tent for something a bit different and we couldn’t have been more pleased! All of our guests said how fabulous it looked! A big thank you also to everyone at Morton’s for helping and answering all of our questions in the run up to our big day. I definitely feel I know more about luxury toilets and generators! We would recommend Morton’s to anyone planning a wedding and wanting a tent which is a little different.

We were delighted with the marquee supplied by Morton’s Events.

Our guests were bowled over by the interlinking hexagonal “pods” (as we called them) and all commented on how special it made the wedding breakfast seem. We managed to accomodate 170 guests in plentiful space while making it seem intimate and cosy.

Mortons’ staff were incredibly helpful,flexible and obliging and decorated the marquee beautifully,with fairy lights and a fabulous starcloth ceiling over the dance “pod”.

Together with table decorations designed by my daughter,the effect created was magical,or as one guest put it “breathtaking.”

We would unhesitatingly advise any family contemplating a wedding in a marquee to opt for Morton’s.

Morton’s were professional, accurate, knowledgable and nothing seemed a problem.


The pods lend themselves in any situation and function and looked far better than we had both dreamed of.
Thank you Simon for making our day go without a hitch and for all your hard work and for what seemed like ours was the only function that year!

We had Mortons marques for our daughters wedding. With 200 guests we had 5 pods, a 5×5 square for the bar area and another as the entrance.

The seating for the guests wrapped round the dance floor giving a wonderful view to all and creating a great atmosphere. Mortons were so helpful always at the end of the phone and the whole day and all preparations went to plan. We would definitely use them again.
