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

Tareha and Ihipera married in Karetu, Northland, also where Ihipera's parents married all those years ago. The moment I met these two, I just knew their wedding day would be all too special, they were just the best!. We drove to their marae where family and friends were hands on with preparations to give these two a day to remember and that is was!

Tareha and Ihipera, I hope you enjoyed your wedding day as much as we all did. Everything about your wedding, your beautiful family and friends were simply beautiful. Congratulations to a very special couple. You two, your wedding and guests will always be big in our hearts, we feel truely grateful to have been there along side you.  Kathy and Amy xx

Kawakawa

I was lucky enough to spend a morning in Kawakawa with the Bay of Islands Photography Club.

We met a whole lot of local folk, photographed many of them and got to know some more about the town we live so close too. Particularly, we spent time with the good people at the Bay of Islands Vintage Steam Railway. There we met Alan, Trevor and Anne who all lead important roles there and clearly love their surroundings, meeting people and providing a wonderful service to locals and visitors alike.

Thank you Alan, Trevor and Anne for having us, Kathy
