Kauri Vista – wedding location with a difference

We had a request in early December to do a photo shoot at ‘Kauri Vista’ a lovely location up around the Puketi Forest about 15kms out of Kerikeri.

This is an amazing place and quite beautiful. Perfect for those couples who are after somewhere different for their special day.

Photographer Rachel Jordan of ‘Two Little Starfish’ and Susi Liddington of ‘Susi Liddington Creative’ on styling,

braved the drizzly rain with our gorgeous model Phoebe Slater to capture these images.

Lynnette Watson of ‘Heavenly Faces make up’

and I got Phoebe ready in town and sent her off for a days adventure in beautiful vintage gowns.

Colin Ashton of ‘Wharepuke Cafe’ worked his magic as ever with exquisite food.

Enjoy.

Thanks Laurel

I did Kylie’s hair for her wedding in November. It was a significant time in their lives and a privilege to be apart of.

Here’s what she wrote to tell me. Thanks Kylie xx

Laurel did an amazing job of working out the hair style I was aiming at.

With her easy going manner and creative flare she came up with the perfect style.

Getting ready with Laurel on the day of the wedding was great, no stress, relaxed and lots of fun.

Laurel thank you for creating a look that I look back on and absolutely love.’

Hinera’s midweek wedding

So far I’ve had a few of these midweek weddings, as people mark their dates rather then a day. As ever a very special day.

So to mark their anniversary of being together Hinera & Joseph got married in the beautiful Mahinepua.

These women were stunning as you’ll see and the whole area is just stunning.

Keepsake flowers from Whangarei did flowers.

Enjoy, loved these beautiful ones.

Kylie & James in Liddington Gardens

My friend and Wedding Planner/Stylist (aka decorator) Susi Liddington has the most amazing garden here in little old Kerikeri.

As well as that she is incredible at decorating wedding venues, either her garden, your venue or your hire marque.

So with Kylie and James getting married in her garden, then heading onto the Pear Tree for their reception she had a ball.

Myself and Suzy Poole (make up) got the girls ready at the Stone Store Lodge (luxury BnB).

Wendy of Putts Green worked her magic with the flowers.

Jess Burges of Exposure Photographic captured their magic.

Enjoy Jess’s images.
