Lakes Lodge

Lake Okataina Wedding

Monica and Tom with their beautiful wee family wanted a destination wedding and originally Rarotonga came to mind, then they wondered about a Fijian wedding … and then they did their homework around New Zealand and discovered Lakes Lodge wedding venue in the Rotorua lakes area. Perfect! Laid back, unpretentious, surrounded by New Zealand bush and right on the waters edge of Lake Okataina one of the beautiful Rotorua Lakes here in New Zealand. Such an amazing wedding venue as they have accommodation to suit everyone and only a 20-30 min drive to the adventures and many things to do and see in Rotorua NZ

I don’t need to say a lot here, I hope some of the pictures here tell their story. Just a relaxed and awesome bunch of happy people, happy families, happy and fun wedding party, and the cutest kids ever – take a wee look at their first dance – kinda says everything about this beautiful loving family. This wedding was just everything that makes my job easy and fun. Thanks so much to all of you. – Rochelle
