Taupo Wedding Photo Locations

The beautiful Taupo region offers an array of stunning wedding photography locations. 
Read on to find out more:

Remember to keep in mind that you are limited for time with photo's so try keep your Taupo wedding photo locations close to your ceremony & reception venues.  You may even be able to get some great shots in and around your wedding venue itself.   

The Lake is a common place for wedding photos, and there are far too many lakeside locations to list here.   However, we also have some great rural locations (think rolling hills with long grass, old Barns, wheat fields etc), beautiful gardens, stunning mountain backdrops and world class golf courses too.   You are best to go exploring, and find a spot that is just right for you.  

See below for some popular wedding photo spots - and don't forget to discuss this in detail with your Taupo wedding photographer.  They know the area well and will be able to suggest some options also.

Huka Falls

New Zealand's most visited natural attraction makes for a spectacular wedding photo backdrop.  Take photos on the bridge or at one of the view points.

Wairakei Golf Course

Not just for golfing fanatics!  There is also an under bridge which connects the golf course to Wairakei Resort - makes for an interesting shot.

Botanical Gardens

The beautiful Taupo Botanical Gardens change from season to season. You cannot beat photos taken with nature.  Wander through the trees or down the meandering footpaths.

Taupo Airport

Actual airplane photos would involve prior arrangement, however there is farm land all around the airport, with long dry grass in summer.  Offering casual, yet effective photography.

Taupo Lakefront

Lake Taupo is the size of Singapore, and there are too many suitable spots to mention.  However the main lakefront, 2, 3, 4 & 5 Mile Bays are all within close proximity and is a great place to start.

Rose Gardens

This is a popular spot for Summer wedding ceremonies, however it also makes for a bright & pretty place for photos.  Wander across the road to the Boat Harbour or Float Plane...making this a one stop location.

Taupo Boat Harbour

The quaint boat harbour in the middle of Taupo township offers some good photo options.  It is also a great spot to take full advantage of  the beautiful Taupo sunsets too.

Float Plane Jetty

The iconic Taupo Float Plane is a unique feature to have in your wedding photos.  Why not jump in and land at your lakeside venue by float plane?

Kinloch Bay

Picturesque Kinloch is only a 15 minute drive from Taupo.  This secluded bay is beautiful and offers a different perspective of the Lake.

2 Mile Bay Sailing Center

This lakeside location offers sandy beaches, sailing boats and yachts.
