Sooo what happens when you spend the morning with one of the most lovely brides you will ever meet? It all just flows from there, because beside her are the family that shaped her, her friends that are all the same and there is just wedding goodness everywhere, eeeeep! Yes it is safe to say we loved spending time with Jen and her girls - and Dad too of course. Thank you for having us share your amazing day Jen and thank you to Nana, Dad and Jose, and the gals for just being you x

Bayly's Farm

There are many wonderful places to be married here in the Bay of Islands. One of my personal favourites is Bayly’s Farm in Waitangi. Close to Paihia with much accommodation you can skip over the hill to this beautiful place of paradise. With beach surrounding, gorgeous photo opportunities and their very own barn, you can have everything all in the one venue.
