Destination Taupo For Your Wedding- A Review

This past weekend we were lucky enough to visit the beautiful Taupo courtesy of Hilton Hotels. What an amazing experience we had taking in the stunning sites of Lake Taupo & surrounds as well as looking at some of the fun activities the region has to offer. Our beautiful room at The Hilton had a fabulous view of the lake and was dressed in a crisp & clean style- just what I like! What an extraordinary place to get away from the hustle & bustle for a destination wedding. Here's a little recap of our trip. Bear in mind some of these images were taken on my fancy pants camera and some from my phone. I think your'll see who the clear winner was. 😉


Relax in style

So picture this, a stunning clear day (let's hope,) the sun shining bright above, your on a boat cruising across the calm lake, add some canapes & bubbles and you've got yourself the most amazing start to your hen's evening or pre/post wedding celebration. We had the absolute pleasure of doing just that on the Barbary.

The Wedding Venue

The Hilton Taupo has the most amazing views over the lake. This image was taken from our room at sunset. Just divine!

We were fortunate enough to see the ballroom all set up for a wedding thanks to the team at EventRent. The ballroom had a grand but intimate inviting vibe- perfect for a wedding in any season. Just outside in the immaculate landscaped grounds was the perfect area for a ceremony complete with wet weather option.

Not to mention being able to have your ceremony, reception and accommodation for you and all your guests all in one place. I can tell you- this is a huge bonus.7149275_orig.jpg

Eat & Play

Taupo has some great eateries to offer your guests on their stay including The Bistro which I can vouch for was just delish! So many activities and adventures on offer too, not to mention the stunning scenic highlights & walking tracks.

AND a backdrop or two for your wedding photos!
