Autumn wedding? The smart choice!
There are many symbols and legends for which orange blossoms are associated with marriage. Certainly they are the flowers that bloom in spring, a season which, together with summer, is the one that is most often chosen for weddings.
But are you really sure that they are the only seasons suitable for a wedding? Have you ever thought about autumn?
Many times the wedding in autumn is perceived as a second choice and I often gather the concern of future brides who wonder about the final result of an autumn photo. Will it be too dark? Dark? Sad?
The right season, a refined choice
And instead, the wedding in autumn can be an elegant, refined and full of surprises choice and can offer many advantages to the spouses, not least that of having truly magical photographs. I think of the wonderful colors of nature, I think of the suggestive atmospheres, of a milder climate, which will spare the spouses and guests the torrid heat of some summer days.
Light, the great protagonist
But let’s proceed in order. And let’s start with the great protagonist of any beautiful photograph: light. The common belief is that the summer light is better, because the sun is stronger, the days are longer and there is a greater probability that the weather is beautiful.
The truth is that the sweet and golden light of autumn, the inclination of the sun’s rays, the reflection on the red, yellow and ocher leaves create a unique magic. On the other hand, the history of photography gives us confirmation: the most famous landscape photographers took some of their best photos in autumn and winter, because, incredible but true, the light of summer is not only not the most beautiful, but, on the contrary, it is the most difficult to manage and the most “dangerous”.
Because? The sun is high in the sky, the light is blinding, the rays, especially in the central hours of the day, descend perpendicular to the earth, creating sharp and sharp shadows, accentuating any imperfection of the face and preventing you from keeping your eyes open and relaxed. How many times in summer photos do we keep our eyes closed and squeezed?
Nature, climate, landscape: the party’s allies
And again: if it is true that in summer you are more sure of having good weather (even if the risk of thunderstorms, alas, there is always), even on a sunny day there is often haze due to humidity and high temperature. In autumn, however, the sky can be clear and clear as never before, the air clear and bright and the sunsets have strong, intense, striking colors.
And then, think of the landscapes: nature in summer lives its fullness, but, often, vegetation suffers from the heat and drought. In autumn, however, the trees dress in warm colors, yellow, red, orange transform the leaves and reflect the sunlight, giving it new vibrations. Think of the beauty of the vineyards, the coppery colors of the beech trees, the palette of colors that never cease to surprise us.
The days, then, are shorter and the sunset, with its unique light, will arrive sooner and this will allow the newlyweds to take splendid photos with the light of the twilight without having to leave their guests giving up part of the party.
A milder climate, a softer light, a landscape with warmer colors: everything will take place in a more relaxed atmosphere; the faces, in the photographs, will be more relaxed, without dark circles or squeezed eyes; nature will give us a scenography with warm, romantic, delicate and striking colors.
Therefore, live the autumn wedding: a refined, elegant choice, to be discovered!
