Redleaf Wollombi wedding party pose in front Indigenous massacre painting: NSW ... trends now

A wedding party and a luxury country retreat has been slammed for posing in front of a controversial painting depicting a massacre of Indigenous people. 

Redleaf Wollombi, in the NSW Hunter Valley, shared the photo to their Instagram which shows the smiling group in front of the artwork titled Les Vues du Brésil' or The Views of Brazil - a piece encapsulating the Portuguese colonisation of Brazil.

The venue told Daily Mail Australia on Monday it had now deleted the image and is 'deeply sorry' about the awkward post.

The image was met with uproar from many within Australia's Indigenous community.

'Nothing like getting married and posing in front of Aboriginal people being slaughtered by colonisers,' Indigenous-owned small business Dreamtime Aroha commented.

'I'm not sure at what point anyone would hang up in their venue or consent to a wedding picture being taken in front of a painting of a brutal Aboriginal massacre?

'This was sent to me because the person didn't know how to approach the venue well I am just a Blak woman asking what the hell?' Dreamtime Aroha added in the post.

One social media user wrote: 'How can anyone with a heart think this painting is ok to hang?'

'How did f... did the wedding planner, the photographer and wedding guests not notice the disgraceful piece of art,' another said. 'It's beyond shocking shame on all involved.'

Dreamtime Aroha, an Indigenous-owned small business, shared the image to Facebook and lambasted the country retreat for featuring the artwork in the wedding photo
