Stonehurst Cedar Creek based in the Hunter Valley was the whimsical backdrop for this boho romantic styled edit captured by venue-favorite photographer, Stories With Mel. The Stonehurst poplar grove was the perfect woodlands space for this forest-inspired shoot. The natural landscape complemented by the sandstone buildings and imported antique doors created a dramatic setting for a gorgeous afternoon with some very talented vendors.

A mix of old and new decor created an eclectic boho feel. The grounds were enchantingly brought to life with Persian rugs, vintage lounges and antique crystal floor lamps, set and styled by the wonderful Willow Tree Vintage. Textured floral installations by Jade McIntosh Flowers were designed with pretty pinks, peaches and ivory, and lots of green foliage to evoke dreamy romance. The look completed with warm neon lights and a gold hex backdrop (supplied by Love Glow and Confetti Party Hirerespectively) for a modern day twist.

Days gone by were heralded by Willow & Me with their sweet vintage caravan bar, stunning cut crystal glassware and en vogue champagne tower. The wedding cake baked up by pastry chef Covered in Crumbs created a delicious contemporary twist on an old favorite – the bundt cake. The vintage theme pervaded throughout the day in a setting which feels as old as time.

Both girls wore stunning Studio C Bridal gowns: Melanie’s, a ballgown with a difference, perfect for the modern fairytale wedding; and Kira’s, a tie-up silk top and blush tulle skirt to create a soft romantic effect. Gloss Girl used the girls’ natural skin tones and natural hair movement to apply glowing fresh skin finishes, soft metallics, braids and soft curls for their boho look.
