We wanted a cosy, private wedding and a boutique wedding on a boat ticked all the boxes. It couldn't have gone any better. The setting was intimate and the natural lake backdrop was amazing. Highly recommend.

My husband loves his boats so I suggested we get married on the water. We researched getting married on boats and decided to have it on Lake Taupo instead of the open waters at sea because the central location was easier for our guests and the natural backdrop is just spectacular. We had an amazing day!

We wanted something a little different for our wedding venue so a boat wedding was just right up our alley! The planning process was a breeze for my wife and we had a fabulous day. Thanks to the crew at Chris Jolly Outdoors.
