From one of the stylists, Nessa:

Collective is the association of two french wedding designers – Nessa Buonomo and Romain Deligny (Atelier Blanc). We deeply believe that the planning and design of a wedding must be done in a unique way – with specific attention ensuring that details always have to make sense. We wanted to join our styles and our energies to create a workshop dedicated to French wedding planners and designers. The result was a collaborative retreat in the South of France designed to connect our souls with our creativity. Our desire was to share a philosophy, a method, and a sensitivity; allowing everyone to listen, to share, and to reveal his personal universe. All this, with an extreme simplicity and graciousness.

We had the desire to retranscribe the image of a current and modern bride – beautiful and singular, while appropriating the main codes of the fashion world. As we both have a firm crush on neutrals, we chose to work on a muted but warm color palette, enhanced by a touch of brass. Our initial inspiration was a curve:  clean and organic, natural and moving, which affirms a freedom of expression, the beauty and the singularity of things handmade and craftsmanship.
