The Idea: arises when the photographer visits the location an industrial environment, large windows and the damaged rough walls, the raw material. A perfect place to put odds with the elegance of a bride and everything that surrounds it, flowers and arrangements. A game based on the visual contrast between rough and smooth.The Two
The Two Dresses: Sought the choice of mild and soft tissues such as organza, silk chiffon and lace are ideal to counteract the environment. For these two dresses created especially for the shoot, we put in all our love for the graceful elegance, femininity, romance and our sartorial tradition.
The Decor: The table was designed in order to emphasize the contrast between a deliberately understated environment and the voluptuousness of floral arrangements and accessories ranging from silver to matte crystal. The floral materials have been chosen for their fullness and softness that give a precious character and elegance to the scene: English roses, peonies, wallflowers, carnations, jasmine gathered in the rich compositions of green sinuous and light that reflect the style garden, natural and spontaneous. A takeover of nature over man-made objects, in a totally post-industrial scenario. For the decor of the ceremony, we choose accessories made with raw materials and worn by time, wood and rusted metal found in deposits of old factories and metal holes unearthed in an artisan workshop between France and the Flanders. The main accessories are combined with glass and cans in colors that amplify rust and desaturation, textures and colors that reveal the patina of time.
The Bouquet: We made three proposals for the bride’s bouquet. The overall idea of the bouquet is given by neutral tones, dusty pastel epitome of understated elegance and refined.
The Stationary: A graphical suite in which “matter” had an important role, worked on ” the distressed / aged “that you see on the card edges and which is accentuated by the texture of the enclosure card. A real rock was hand painted and used as a placeholder on the table. The invitations used the colors of green, gold and a medium gray. The leaves are present, as a decorative element, both on the invitations and physically on the envelope. The cake In perfect blackboard style, nothing is more apt to give the sense of rough stone.
