I have been documenting beautiful Weddings in the Bay Of Plenty and Whakatane region since 2017. I have come to know the amazing vendors and the awesome service they offer to their wedding clients. That being from venues to florists and celebrants!
So please take a look at this list I have curated for your wedding planning journey on the vendors I would recommend to any of my Bay Of Plenty Wedding clients.
Prita Fermah - Makeup Artist
Now, I must admit... I may be a tad bit bias here because Prita is my best friend but this isn't why I would be recommending her. She has been practicing and mastering this craft since very early high school days and became a qualified Makeup Artist in 2014. She has been making our brides even more outstandingly beautiful since! She see's and understands the natural beauty in everyone and simply enhances these features through her incredible talent. Simply share with Prita your desired look for your special day, she will give you pointers and recommendations based off of her professional opinion and from there she will create magic with you.

The Run - Wedding Venue
Where do I start with this super special venue!? This venue is situated on my Uncle and Aunties amazing property/farm which is a stone's throw away from where I live in Matata. I have grown up in and around this incredible property making this a venue that I know inside and out. I know exactly where I can take you to create some incredible and unique photo opportunities for your wedding portraits. This venue offers amazing hilltop, farm and sea views with incredible garden landscapes that my Aunty has worked on for as long as I can remember. As of late 2022 they have introduced a brand new elegant, country, barn-style building to their beautiful property. Giving you the perfect option for a covered wedding ceremony and/or reception.
