Autumn Elegance


Silvie Susardjo of Little Gem – Flowers for Weddings & Events set out to create a shoot showcasing the epitome of autumn elegance. Using luscious florals and fruits, Silvie aimed to inspire with new ideas and twists on traditional autumn wedding decor.

“Every season has its upside, but autumn has a particular beauty to it. The rich colours, nostalgic feel and the cool breeze in particular are the things that make autumn, autumn. We all wanted to do a styled shoot that was romantic and elegant but also felt intimate.

Taking cue from the seascape venue as the starting place, I designed the rest of the elements to compliment this. I am a fan of using many different elements in my designs, like branching fruits or flower vines—typically what I can find in my garden and neighbourhood, mixed with what’s available at the flower market.

For this shoot, I chose autumn-orientated colours for the florals and combined them with green figs, fruits and changing maple leaves—it feels so romantic yet fresh and organic. For the stationery, Leah used copper-inked calligraphy coupled with blue-grey lettering for an ‘old-world romantic’ feel, and also to tie in with the ocean.”
