To think in colour blocks means to think like a true artist.
It is a thought that always comes to mind when I see how people dress in the fashion districts of Milan, London, Paris, Venetian.
Daring people choose to wear bold colours that are apparently in contrast, but which are in fact carefully chosen so as to be absolutely in harmony and balanced.
Colour blocking had to be a must in my weddings portfolio.
We are all artists deep down: there is a vein of eccentricity in all of us that leads us to be bold and daring. However, it sometimes takes a little guidance to bring out our original and creative part.
My mission as a wedding planner is to guide my would-be husband and wife to listen to that hidden side, to give it a voice and form, and help them decide how to bring it out on their big day.
Wed in Color Blocking is the best Wedding Venice.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”small” position=”center” color=”#ffffff” up=”25″ down=”25″ thickness=”5″][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”grid” text_align=”center”][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” interval=”0″ images=”20514,20516,20517,20513,20520,20515,20519,20518″ onclick=”link_no” custom_links_target=”_self” column_number=”0″ grayscale=”no” choose_frame=”default” img_size=”45×10″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator type=”small” position=”center” color=”#ffffff” up=”25″ down=”25″ thickness=”5″][vc_column_text]
I was contacted by an English couple who adored the art proposal of the Biennale of Venice and wanted me to organize an “artistic” theme for their wedding, where bright and contrasting colors were the main characters. I asked them to imagine getting married surrounded by contemporary, geometric shapes and with juxtapositions of colour.
They liked their idea and they decided to go for a Color Blocking theme.
For the bride I designed an emerald green dress in jersey of viscose and silk, for a shiny effect. She wore a bowler hat with matching cornflower blue gloves… she wanted to feel like she was on the catwalk! The groom, on the other hand, wore a cornflower blue suit with an emerald bowtie … and he particularly liked the idea of wearing the same colors as the bride.
The flower decoration were extraordinary: spots of color filled the town hall and the restaurant chosen. Gerberas, fuchsias and roses, in blue and yellow, but also chili peppers and bread, fruit and vegetables were the protagonists (after the bride and groom and the guests, of course!).
Guests were asked to choose one of the colour palettes available in the location and that were designed especially for the spouses, and dressed in the colours chosen (obviously, given the style, the colours available had been chosen carefully). Given the very limited number of guests, the bride and groom asked me to find a restaurant where you can breathe an artistic atmosphere, where perhaps the tables could have different shapes. I found one that was just perfect for them!
Outside we traced an aisle with differently coloured flower petals (remembering that their favorite colors were emerald green and cornflower blue); at the side of the aisle flat vases hosted flower petals of just one colour and floating candles, of course! The bride and groom were thrilled! They felt like the king and queen of art on their most beautiful day.
We called a pianist to entertain the guests and I must say that it was a big hit!
The atmosphere was right for them! Exactly what they wanted!
We organized a table for the wedding favours: the spouses chose large glass cubes filled with sweets and colorful chocolate, and coloured sugared almonds.
We also prepared boxes overflowing with decorated wine gums and sweets, and cakes bon that were literally devoured by the guests.
Also the corner of the jokes was characterized by color: shimmering glasses and gilded metal frames.
A unique backdrop for a unique wedding.
A colour-block wedding color in Italy, or rather, in Venice.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
