Nau mai Haere mai! (Welcome)
New Zealand Traditional Maori Weddings, the truly unique and
emotional Wedding experience of the South Pacific.
Our romantic themes and spectacular sacred locations have been carefully chosen creating
an atmosphere of excitement and romance.
Here in the city of Rotorua, you will discover the seeds of love that
were planted many generations ago, by two of our famous ancestors,
Princess Hinemoa and Tutanekai, the Greatest Love Story
in Maori History.
"Kei te rongo I te mahana o te iwi"
Experience the warmth and love of the Polynesian Maori, the very best of Aotearoa (New Zealand).
As your wedding co-coordinators Darren and Michelle Brown,
we come from a
proud line of tribal affiliations which are Ngati Kahungungu, Rongowhakaata,
Ngapuhi and Ngai Tai, ancestry.
Having lived in Rotorua for 42 years and married for 18 years,
it gives us
great pleasure to share with you a unique balance of Maori tradition
with modern day wedding trends,
cultural values that derive from a proud
and noble race known as Te Maori.
Our traditional Maori Wedding Ceremonies are performed with
of a Maori Tohunga (Priest) and our ancestry tracing back to the sacred
Takitimu Canoe, that migrated here to New Zealand between (AD 1000-1300).
