Meningococcal disease is an acute bacterial infection that can cause death within hours, as was the case for Jamieka, if not recognised and treated in time.

Photographs from the day show the smiling bride in a white dress, walking down the aisle on the golf course, surrounded by her family and friends.

Jamieka began feeling ill at her wedding ceremony.

Her husband Alistair told the NZ Herald he was devastated by the sudden death of his new wife.

"Her passing was a huge shock to everybody, to lose her so quickly and this has been incredibly hard to process. She was taken from us without notice by a frightful, deadly disease", her new husband, Andrew, told NewsHub.

Her family described Jamieka as "the most kind-hearted person in the world who loved life and she always put others before herself".

A family statement to Newshub said, "Jamieka was so happy to be married and the wedding was a handsome, happy occasion surrounded by love".

Jamieka McCarthy Harford died just hours after she was married. "She will be missed forever".

The Auckland Regional Public Health Service has confirmed to Newshub they are investigating the death, which was most likely caused by meningococcal disease - a rare bacterial infection that causes membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord to become inflamed.

ARPHS said it was working closely with the family to prevent further transmission of the disease.
