Stunning Deep Red Industrial Wedding Inspiration

Photography by Carla Penoncelli

With a goal of revisiting beauty standards and the classic stereotypes of a traditional wedding, a team of wedding vendors in the city of Torino, Italy got together to create this incredible industrial take on romance…. if the geometric details and styling doesn’t get you, the palette of deepest darkest reds certainly will!

From the Wedding Planner Chiara Viarisio….. “I wanted to marry geometric shapes with romantic elements, and I chose a colour palette of warm and intense shades to better paint in colour the atmosphere.

The bride’s dress is tailored by Elena Pignata, an ethereal and refined design for a non-traditional bride with original taste. Enriched with unique embellishments, such as hand sewn beads and the lace details of the high collar and applied cuffs.

Make-up was done by Arianna Manghisi, and is fresh and light to not hide our bride’s natural tones. The hairstyle is completed with a delicate comb made by
Nea Bridal Milan.

The wonderful bouquet of bright colours is a fusion of different types of leaves and flowers that recall the warm nuances of the mise en place.

The bordeaux table runner recalls a baroque style, complimenting the black candles. The past is also recollected by the porcelain mise en place, where elegant dishes are matched with crystal glasses: all vintage pieces with a refined character. To enrich the table, florist Danielle Design used squared and geometric-shaped jars, inside which she placed delicate flowers with pink and burgundy petals.

The invitations and stationery were deigned by Studio Alispi. The font colour is a strong reference to copper, a typical industrial material that is also present in this amazing location. While the burgundy fil-rouge of the chosen palette is recalled in the striations.

And last but not least in the macarons, the shortbread biscuits and cakes made by Alessandra Del Massa you can see a clear connection with the colour palette and geometric designs. This confirms the possibility to grant a single stylistic proposal in all the elements that define a wedding.


Isn’t it stunning?? The setting, the styling, the color palette, the florals…. everything!
