Apple treats for a bonfire weekend wedding


Apple wedding ideas

I am a sucker for all things seasonal, including seasonal events and holidays.  Bonfire night is one of those days I just love, both for the history and the accompanying celebrations.  I wanted to share a bit of inspiration for anyone considering this lovely time of year for a wedding.

No, it might not be warm and sunny, but it provides a whole host of other goodies that can create a beautiful wedding – think cinder toffee, an autumnal colour palette, displays of berries and leaves, and of course, toffee apples.  Taking inspiration for the toffee apple, here are some ideas for a bonfire weekend wedding.

Natural twiggy toffee apples – not only totally cool but would make a fun addition to a dessert table or as wedding favours

Warming cinnamon spiced apple juice – mulled apple juice (or cider) was one of my favourite things to make last winter, it’s just so easy to do, tastes great and is lovely for parties.  If I was having a wintery wedding I would be giving this to my guests to keep them warm.   There are loads of wonderful artisan producers of apple juice and cider in this country so be sure to buy local – we got the cider for our wedding for Day’s Cottage in Gloucestershire.

Apple jelly favours – in tiny jars with a label these would make tasty seasonal wedding favours for an autumn wedding.  Apple jelly is usually the most beautiful amber colour, so would be a pretty addition to any wedding tables.  My granny made apple jelly that was blushed pink for our wedding using apples from her garden – full details on our wedding food coming soon.

Are there any brides-to-be who are incorporating apples into their wedding who have other creative ideas to share?
