Fairy Springs
( Te Puna o Tuhoe )

The sacred spring of Tuhoe provides a romantic
 wedding venue with historic and spiritual
significance to the Maori people.
 Surrounded by streams of living waters,
lush greenery, native flora and fauna
the Fairy Springs derives
 its name after a great Maori Chief called Tuhoe,
 a famous ancestor of the Tuhoe Tribe.
It is here on this sacred location where the
 Fairy People (Patupaiarehe) would descend the
slopes of Mount Ngongotaha to visit the
 springs at night and to drink freely from
the waters of life. At times Tuhoe would send his
 tohunga (priest) to the springs to pray to the gods.
A rainbow would appear over the spring which
was seen as a good omen in answer to these
 prayers, therefore Rainbow Springs is another
 name given  to this location.
As you exchange your
wedding vows within this Cathedral of
 Mother Nature we invite you to experience a
 truly unique traditional Maori wedding ceremony
 here on this sacred location.
The blessing and prayers of a Maori priest over
 your lives and the crystal clear waters that
 flow from the Fairy Springs to refresh and
 renew  your love for each other as you
 enter the bonds of matrimony.
