Kia Ora!

According to the Maori legend, it is here in the city of Rotorua on the Island of Mokoia, that the seeds of love were planted many generations ago by two of our famous ancestors, Princess Hinemoa and Tutanekai.
Their endless love for one another is recorded in Maori history as the greatest love story ever to be told.

Experience your wedding ceremony in the company of their decendants as we embrace and serenade you with a rendition of their world famous love song "Pokarekare ana" the greatest love song from the greatest love story in the history of the Polynesian Maori.
