Justine is a lovely local  from the Bay of Islands/Kerikeri area.

I met her as a beauty therapist some time back, she owns ‘The Powder Room’ in the area.

She married her longtime man Brett last February, in a lovely ceremony at their Home.

With a definite vintage feel to their day, signing the Register in their cute little caravan.

Justine was after something soft and relaxed for her hair. It was the perfect length, aka just on her shoulders.

As you can see it looked great with her exquite gown.

Susan & Micheal

I was going through a few things and realised that I didn’t have many photos from Susan’s wedding last year.

 So I touch base with her and she gave me access to her beautiful images.

I’m so grateful as I love these images from the very talented Jenna Young Photography ( now based in Blenheim).

MUA  Lynnette Watson – Heavenly Faces Make Up.

We got Susan ready at the Scenic hotel Paihia, an excellent location.

Hayley’s mid-week elopement

Hayley rang me at work about six weeks ago ago to see if I’d do her hair for her wedding.

She told me it would just be her, her Man and their children.

We found a time that worked and then decided to catch up as well, as she had some hair issues she wanted to ask about.

She had some very damaged hair due to colour chemicals and her hair type.

Not ideal for hair ups, but I thought it was do-able.

As it turned out very do-able.

I’m just loving these creative images by Rachel Jordan of Two Little Starfish.

Location, Liddington Gardens. MUA Annalise Bergman.

Danielle & Bobby


I had an e-mail from Danielle while I was on holiday requesting me to do her hair.

She told me she would be coming out with her Man to holiday and get married while here from the UK.

Her theme or the look she was going for was a bit vintage, sort of the forties era.

I was stoked, nothing like doing a vintage updo. Beautiful smooth styling with a bit of a victory roll here and there.

Funny she told me during the time we were there that seen me on UTube in a video about my Lorna Evans photographics workshop…very cool!!


Suzy Poole was the MUA of the day.

We ended up helping Danielle get dressed, as we often do when it’s just the bride.

We also had the joy of watching this lovely couple when Danielle walked up to Bobby…who I have to say looked amazing in his three piece suit.


Photographer was Jess Burges of Exposure Photographics & beautiful last minute flowers from Rachel Kennedy of Paradise Florist.

Enjoy these beautiful images. There are more on www.exposurenz.co.nz.
