Back To Beach Weddings

Little Kaiteriteri or Stephens Bay:

Little Kaiteriteri is a short distance from Kaiteriteri itself with great road access for either cars or a bus.  The area also has clean flush toilets running water. (Not for drinking) Back from the beach is a nice picnic area with lots of tree’s offering ample shade.

The south end of the beach is the most popular end for the ceremony and offers some great rocks with an un-spoilt back drop for the photographs.

Access for traditional white chairs and ceremony set-up is easy and a charter boat can be used for a dramatic bride entrance.  Catering and drinks is also easily arranged by the Dream Maker.

Points to consider:

  1. No maximum number.
  2. There are nice clean public toilets with water. (not for drinking)
  3. There is a lot of rock formations offering a photographer’s many options.
  4. There is little shade on the beach, but plenty in the picnic area. (permit maybe required)
  5. Access by Water Taxi and charter boat or by foot.
