Inky’s secret wedding

With a big cyclone hitting us in the Bay of Islands in March, there were secret plans afoot made for Inky’s wedding. She was told to be ready by 2.30pm and nothing else. So with that she organised a dress, make up , hair(me), awesome shoes, flowers and off she went. Shame about the weather, but there’s no organising the weather is there?

I believe I hadn’t seen a more relaxed bride. No worries when you just have to get there 🙂

So here are some of the photos that Jess Burges, managed to capture on the day. Love them. Lxx


Geraldine Dec 21 2013

Part of my quick trip to Altanta USA last year was because I had to come home to a big pre-Christmas work load in the Salon.  But also for a beautiful wedding, with lovely touches of vintage. So off I went out to the little location of Rangitane, on the Kerikeri Inlet.  Suzy Poole joined me doing Make up and Alley Rowe of Alice Photography was there to capture the moments on film. Geraldine was so relaxed as were her lovely bridesmaids. So gorgeous Ladies, loved working with you all. Lxx


Melissa & Simon at Waitangi

This was one of my favourite weddings from last season.

Melissa was just beautiful as you can see from her photos. Again Lynnette Watson was on make up.

This time the very talented Terry Robinson was taking photos. She doesn’t do it as often as she used to but when she does, they’re amazing.

This day had the family all around, which is always great to see.

Time flys, as their 1st anniversary has just been with a little one on the way.



Ashley & Corey Feb 1 2014

Ashley & Corey got married in Russell this year on Feb 1st.

I went over to the Duke of Marlborough to get Ash ready bright and early.

We were soon joined by Lynnette Watson doing make up.

Ashley and her family are locals in the Kerikeri area, so I’d known them for a while. So nice.

Next to arrive was Rachel Jordon of ‘Two Little Starfish’ photography.

Great to see these lovely photos. Fabulous day.
