STYLED SHOOT: Romantic Country Charm at Mayfield Vineyard
When the blank canvas is as beautiful as Mayfield Vineyard in Orange, NSW, any extra *zshjush*-ing on top is bound to take things to another level. And this bright, colourful shoot does just that.
Words by Karina Lowndes

There’s something about visiting country NSW in the cooler months. The wildlife, the chilly days, the fireplaces and how a pop of colour can really bring the MOOD.

Mayfield Vineyard located just outside of charming Orange is an historical wedding institution recently given new life. Kirsten from Kirsten Cunningham Photography and Leah from Florence Grace were thrilled this unique slice of heaven had once again opened its doors and chose to celebrate by assembling a team of awesome local vendors and one shoot wasn’t quite enough… so they did two.

These intimate styled shoots bring together colourful, fresh and contemporary vibes with the use of modern roses, orchids and anthuriums. The romantic alfresco table and bar set ups are truly an ode to the impending Spring days upon us (hallelujah). Scroll through and feast your eyes.
