Siran and Paul’s Russell Wedding

I have known these two and their families almost as long as I have lived in Kerikeri (18 yrs already), both when we had young kids and separately, so many years later when they came together it was such an exciting celebration to be part of.

Siran and Paul tied the knot on this perfect clear sky day in mid-May on the deck at The Duke Of Marlborough surrounded their families, their six kids and many friends! Having know these guys for so long this was a really special wedding for me to be photographing and attending guest!

I feel so utterly privileged to have been part of your day and … to party until the lights went out, the last ones standing! I am happy for all beautiful family.

      Bayleys Farm // Northland Wedding

      Becks and Matt said their I do’s at the edge of the cliff on the far point of Baylys Farm with a blue sky backdrop of the Bay Of Islands, really this is the cream of wedding locations here in the Far North.
      Becks and Matt’s day was filled with so much love and laughter, an amazing bridal party, an incredible sunset and a great late night party!

          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!
