Autumn Wedding Cake Inspiration – 6 Gorgeous Ideas

September 7 2022

Living and working in the Lake District, I’m surrounded by nature all year round and Autumn is definitely my favourite season! With beautiful colours on the trees and all those browns, golds, and reds, it’s easy to see why so many couples get married at this time of year.

And with so many wedding venues with scenic views why not bring the outside in with your cake design. Here are some of my favourite Autumn wedding cakes…

A wedding cake with a tumbling cascade of sugar leaves, this design worked perfectly against its backdrop of the lake and mountains at The Inn on The Lake hotel.

Autumnal berry wedding cake. This is one of my favourites! A deep burgundy painted tier topped with semi-naked tiers, and dressed with seasonal figs and spices. Photographed by Gail Secker at the beautiful Hidden River Barn.
