Tropical Tongan Honeymoon
Stunning Fifth Avenue rings sealed the marriage of Chris and Myra Sutton at Bridgewater Country Estate, Kaukapakapa. Fifth Avenue Diamond Jewellers' sales assistant Myra (formerly Hoffmann) married Chris, an On-Air Controller for Sky TV, before the pair jetted off for a tropical honeymoon in Tonga. 
Best Man was Marc Cunningham and bridesmaid was Leah Haworth at the intimate, relaxed ceremony, which had an elegant, vintage feel. Both wedding bands were specially handmade by Fifth Avenue Diamond Jewellers from yellow gold, with Chris creating the subtle wave design for his ring himself. Myra's band had to be made to fit around her ruby engagement ring. 

Two Weddings, Two Honeymoons
Not one but two wedding ceremonies are marking the marriage of Jina Hong and Quinn Han, who is currently based in Korea.  An intimate ceremony at Debretts Hotel in May involved Jina's family, before the couple set off for a city break first honeymoon in Wellington. 
The pair will hold another ceremony in Korea this month to cater for Quinn's family and friends. They will then be heading off on honeymoon number two - a tour of France, Italy and Spain. Jina, who works in Human Resources, chose a custom-made platinum solitaire from Fifth Avenue Diamond Jewellers for her wedding ring. 
Quinn, a key account manager, also chose a Fifth Avenue Diamond Jewellers' wedding band. The couple, who met when Jina was working in Korea, will actually exchange their bespoke rings at the Korean service this month. Jina said: "I have no complaints about having two weddings and two honeymoons!"
