Bay of Islands Wedding Photography, Russell, Paihia – Ipipiri – Aileen & Conrad

The rustic charm of Russell, handmade and eclectic design and details mixed with the luxury Bay of Island overnight cruise boat The Ipipiri to create Aileen & Conrad’s unique New Zealand wedding day. Starting the day with the girls at the Russell Cottages we then headed out into New Zealand’s first capital for a fun pre wedding shoot with the girls taking in the iconic locations. Aileen caught the attention of both the locals and tourists wandering the streets in her gorgeous Jane Yeh gown. Soon enough we were on a boat heading into the bay in search of the Ipipiri and the secret beach ceremony spot where Conrad and the guests were waiting. The moving ceremony was performed by Conrad’s father Samu and was followed by an unforgettable haka and relaxing drinks in the sunshine. As the sun went down the we were ferried back the Ipipiri to continue the celebrations.
