Marriage among the chestnut trees.
Children always associate fragrances with a person, images with places, colours with seasons and it is wonderful how these imprinted feelings stay and develop during the whole human life.
Don’t you think the autumn smells of your grandpa making roasted chestnuts?!
November gives the ideal atmosphere for a rustic wedding because it is capable of transmitting "warmth" in every detail. The clear air brings the scent of wine and must, the stone farmhouses are heated by large fireplaces, the tables are adorned by cinnamon sticks and dried oranges, the tablecloths and runners fade from beige to bright red.
Orange and yellow roses are wrapped in large chocolate-colored envelopes, candles and aromas of dried fruit vibes in the air, the paths among the chestnut trees are transformed in multi-shade leaves carpet and create the best evocative image of warm colours.
If you are not a traditionalist and have always imagined a marriage out of the ordinary, the month of November certainly offers the opportunity to use a nice and original theme... Halloween.
Of course, there will not be skeletons and cobwebs to "colour" the day of your wedding but it would be nice to use pumpkins of different shapes and sizes as candle holders or wooden bowls containing caramelised apples.
All framed by the warm autumn colours.
