An Autumn Harvest Styled Shoot by Sugar & Spice Events

This shoot was commissioned by O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyard, a sublime spot for a wedding. On an utterly perfect Queensland winter’s day, a team of talented designers, stylists and the amazing Maureen from Life in Bloom Photography toddled to this picturesque location to create some winter winery magic.

It began in the wine barrel room, a perfect choice for an intimate or large wedding reception. The aim was to create a warm and cosy space, that made you want to snuggle up in glimmering candlelight, soft oak wine barrels and a rich colour palette of chocolate, burgundy and gold. Tall crystal candelabras grew out of a bed of moss at the base and towered over the tables, dripping with scarlet and dusty pink roses, ivy and plump red grapes. White Tiffany Chairs were draped in satin and tied in a classic bow. A screen of hanging inverted roses from an aged wooden ladder added our signature whimsical touch and created a dramatic arch entrance to the room.

A gorgeous cake care of Deliciously Decadent was perched on a raw wooden stand that was also nestled in a bed of moss and gold pillar candles. The cake was a detailed three tier with sugar roses in gold and shades of red, perched delicately atop a wine barrel.

Moving outside to the luscious grounds surrounding the barrel room. There is a stream surrounded by towering trees and an expansive lawn. You could just lose yourself on a Sunday afternoon with a picnic basket and one of O’Reilly’s famous bottles of Picnic Bubbles and forget that the world outside of those gates exists.

Sugar & Spice Events were so inspired by the romance of the surroundings that they decided to create some Snow White inspired images. The gorgeous model was very much a modern day Disney Princess and these shots are some of the best. As the afternoon sun rolled behind the mountains, the fairytale wedding ceremony was complete. Under a giant tree with expansive branches, Tiffany chairs were embellished with more amazing florals from White Ivy Design and the ground was littered with rose petals. Pretty as a picture!

The rest of the images were taken around the grounds to show what photo opportunities lucky couples can take advantage of if they choose O’Reilly’s as their wedding destination.
