Dramatic Black & Gold Wedding Ideas From Ancient Rome

When dressing the epic castles and crumbling ruins of Ancient Rome, we need drama, we need glamour, we need all the avant-garde sophistication that Cinzia Bruschini and The Wedding Care have to offer in this stunning wedding inspiration.

Lucious ivory, butter yellow, nude, gold and black – the talents behind this editorial have created a color palette so modern yet so complimentary for its ancient surroundings. We’ve chatted a bit in the past how absolutely approve of a bride tribe in black, and I just can’t help but want to jump into these photos and feel the light and luxe fabric on the black Anna Fucà gown.

Black ribbons, black candles, black stationery, a black cake, of all the dramatic lush details nothing has our eye like the black diamond engagement ring. The stunning jewel seems to be from another era altogether – vintage-inspired, delightfully large and gleaming with charm, this ring proves not all black diamonds are reserved for the gothic style.

From Cinzia Bruschini

This thirteenth-century castle’s elegance is enhanced by its sophisticated architecture and the palette of the colors chosen: Ivory, yellow, nude, gold and black create a distinct softness. The Wedding Care aimed to create something that was elegant, romantic and timeless at the same time.

This sophisticated style is also evoked by the table setting with Sarah Farina’s dish collection for SpazioMateriae and lit by a gorgeous ensemble of black candles from Creative Candles.

The gold and black table numbers, menus and invitations by Sarah Pearl Studio are contemporary and luxurious.

For the occasion, Rosaria Garzone created a fairytale wedding cake in which the black sugar paste is delicately adorned by yellow, ivory and beige flowers.

And when the last slice of cake had been eaten and the sun had gone down by the sea, the special photo shoot day designed by The Wedding Care and captured by Cinzia Bruschini might have ended, but the fairy tale has just begun.
