Inspiration board / The elegance of Venaria Palace, Turin, Italy
The opulent, intricate details of the Venaria Palace with the light colour tones inspire this wedding. Creams with hints of gilded gold are complimented by blues – ranging from delicate pale tones to deeper indigo.
Think romantic, aristocratic, imagine painted ceilings, exquisite carvings into the stone and architecture, authentic character and antique elements. What an amazing base to plan a wedding which is elegant, and timeless upon – you don’t even need to add too much to this and instead using the building, grounds and surroundings as the key points of your wedding. Make it yours by injecting your own style with what you both wear too.
Your Groom favours the modern gentleman look and may wear a tuxedo, perhaps a beautiful bow tie and of course incredibly shiny black formal shoes! As a Bride wanting an elegant look you may choose a dress which features lace and a tulle tulle skirt, the most incredible wedding shoes and antique inspired accessories such as those by Enchanted Atelier by LIV HART. This wedding and your style is not about being understated, it is very fine art and there is beauty everywhere you look!
To create an opulent scene you can add heavy brass based candle holders for beautifully scented tall tapers – running the full length of tables or along the top of fireplaces. Using some delicate material to run underneath and in-between these is really popular with cheesecloth and muslin being fabric options. SILK AND WILLOW have a great range of table linens.
You can also create this look with majestic florals – some statement arrangements and also using long twirling greens with delicate leaves to the spaces. For example, these could trail along fireplaces and furniture pieces and drape. Entwine them with the candlesticks, add them to the elaborate seating plan – there are so many options!
