Who says a wedding dress has to be about pomp and circumstance? Pinto wore British brand Needle & Thread on her wedding day, and considering that they are best known for their intricate embroidery and romantic silhouettes, it was an appropriate choice.

modern and chic.
What makes a wedding dress suitable for autumn is ultimately down to your personal preference and what your overall wedding day looks like. Although I was an August bride, my wedding took place in my Scottish coastal hometown, so, erring on the side of caution, I chose a fitted dress to minimise the chill. Though it was sleeveless, I was prepared for what the enviable chilly downpour that ensued thanks to a beautiful, ecru leather jacket I bought on a whim just the week before. And I’m so glad I did, as I barely took to it off.
