Waiheke Island wedding // Photographer Jess Burges

Mikey and Angela travelled from the Bay of Islands where they call home to Waiheke Island to tie the knot at Goldies Estate and I was fortunate enough to be there to capture their wedding day. It was almost like home away from home with an entourage of Kerikeri locals taking over the streets of Waiheke!

The day couldn’t have been more perfect, they married under the Pohutukawa tree with backdrop of the vineyard and Putiki Bay, surrounded by their loved ones. After the ceremony the guests gathered at the Cellar door for drinks and canapes whilst we walked through the grapevines to the beach for some photos.

For me it was absolute pleasure to be part of their journey, I have photographed their engagement and then their pregnancy and now their wedding!

Awesome vendors who were onboard to help with this amazing day!

    Michelle and Jonny’s Wedding || Kerikeri Northland

    Michelle and Jonny’s wedding was such an incredible day to capture.

    This super awesome couple, Michelle and Jonny flew from Perth and married on Michelle’s family farm in Okaihau, Northland. I think they must of bought the insane Perth heat with them as this was so far one of the hottest days in January!

    They both got ready on the farm, Michelle in her Grandmas amazing farmhouse with the epic wallpaper and Jonny and the guys in the Red shed in the middle of the paddock. They tied the knot in the garden surrounded by family and friends and then we ventured out into the paddocks and Puri forests for some photos. The reception was held at Susi Liddington gardens where they ate, danced and partied till late!!

    Thank you both so much for having me there to do your photography, you were both amazing!

        Chelsea and Shaun’s wedding // Waipu Northland

        Chelsea and Shaun tied the knot in Waipu, Northland. The plan was to have their ceremony on the South end of the beach by the Estuary, but the weather had other ideas. As we watched the rain pelting down prior to the ceremony, plans were changed at the last minute to get married in the local hall. Despite the last minute change of plans everything went like clockwork and Chelsea and Shaun were married inside. Alas, not long after the family group photos were taken care of the rain dispersed and we made a dash for the beach for some photographs!

        You guys were so chilled and such a pleasure to photograph and hangout with for the day!
