Tainted Love: An Upcycled Eco-Friendly Wedding
The Story: This wedding shoot from Italy was inspired by an ecological vision. Eco-friendly weddings have been trending as couples are becoming more conscious about sustainability. The team behind this eco-friendly wedding shoot wanted to repurpose simple everyday materials, like plastic, into something unique and beautiful to raise awareness of the benefits of recycling and upcycling.
The Location: The location for this shoot was an abandoned industrial archeology site located on the Apulian coast. In the 1960s it was one of the largest cement factories in Southern Italy.
The Vibe: Decidedly modern but with a touch of glamour. The classic colour combination of black and white accented by gold are contrasted against concrete minimalism, graphic posters and graffiti. This contrast in colours and textures creates a undeniably modern look that feels classic yet urban and edgy.
The Details: The colour palette was inspired by industrial elements combining gold, grey, black and white. The tablescape has a distinctly modern look with black crockery and cutlery set against elegant marble and textured glassware. The black and white florals from Greenery Lab blend in perfectly and feature striking black roses. Our lovers are undeniably en mode with the bride sporting an elegant gown with dramatic sleeves from Rosanna Bassi Atelier and our groom looking dapper in modern black tie from AntePrima.
- This shoot shows how simple and cost effective materials can be repurposed into something beautiful. If you feel passionately about a cause like recycling, be creative and think about a way to incorporate this into your wedding theme.
- Where you are going for a dramatic look, remember that accessories like the incredible birdcage veil used in this shoot, can take things to the next level.
- Creating your guests with a classic car like this vintage black Alfa Romeo from Rent Classica can really set the scene for your events and provide the perfect romantic getaway at the end of the night.
