Mokoia Island - Rotorua


Sacred to the Maori people

Mokoia Island the Ultimate Wedding Venue, The Ultimate Wedding experience of Aotearoa  (New Zealand).
Located at the very center of Lake Rotorua, Mokoia Island places wedding couples at the very heart of the Polynesian Maori.
It is here on this Exclusive Location where the seeds of romance were planted many generations ago by two of our Famous Ancestors, Hinemoa and Tutanekai, their legend of love is recorded in Maori History as the greatest love story ever to be told.
As the Bride and Groom are welcomed onto this Sacred Island they are embraced by the descendents of Hinemoa and Tutanekai with Traditional Maori song and dance.
Their language of love is demonstrated to the visiting Wedding party creating an atmosphere of joy and romance.
Throughout the procedures the Bride and Groom are able to trace the steps taken by the famous young lovers, Hinemoa and Tutanekai, visiting the Historical site of Hinemoa’s Hot Spring, the place where the two lovers first met.
The highlight of the occasion comes at the Wedding Ceremony.
While the couple exchange their vows the descendants of Hinemoa and Tutanekai perform a rendition of their World Famous Love Song Pokarekare ana.
A song that speaks of their enduring love for one another, their love that is as deep as the waters of Lake Rotorua.
As the marriage ceremony comes to a close the famous love story of Hinemoa and Tutanekai lives on forever in the hearts and lives of the newly Weds.
Mokoia Island, the Truly Unique and emotional Wedding experience of the Polynesian Maori.
