M & N’s Tahiti Wedding Photography

Welcome to the Tahiti Wedding Photography of {M} & {N}.

Tahiti; the word conjures up visions of unspoiled paradise, idyllic weather, blue oceans, and even bluer skies, black sand beaches, as well as white sane beaches, and lots of activities for tourists including surfing, diving, scuba diving, and many more sea and land pursuits, in a remote part of the world. Traveling to Tahiti from London did feel like this. But more on that later.

Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, and French Polynesia

Collectively, Tahiti and her 118 islands in the South Pacific make up French Polynesia. The collection of islands and atolls are scattered over a size that is the nautical size of Western Europe, however, the total landmass only makes up 4,100 square kilometres.

The capital of Tahiti is Papeete, and it’s translation to English is ‘water basket’.

Several of the other islands are very popular too. The Huffington Post described Moorea as “The World’s Most Beautiful Island You’ve Never Heard Of“, and it really is so very beautiful. It is also known as “The island of love”.

The more well known and popular island in the “The Islands of Tahiti”, is Bora Bora. It is sometimes referred to as “The Romantic Island”. The Tahitian language doesn’t have a letter “B”, and should, in fact, be pronounced as Pora Pora. The English translation meaning “firstborn”. Obviously, early visitors misheard it as Bora Bora.

All international flights arrive at Faa’a International Airport, on Tahiti. I would definitely recommend a short stay in Tahiti before leaving for one of the smaller, quieter and more secluded islands.  

Enjoy a memorable and remarkable stay on a motu, which is Tahitian to describe a tiny island, which is usually located on the coast of a larger island. The motu is usually covered in coconut palms and has fabulous coral gardens and colourful sea life.

Creative Tahiti Wedding Photographer

I started my journey from London Gatwick and flew into Singapore, one of my favourite countries in the world. A very brief stopover and I was on my way to Sydney, for a 1-week stay with my cousin brother and his amazing family.

I absolutely enjoyed my stay in Sydney. It was a breath of fresh air. Then onwards to Tahiti via a brief layover in Auckland.

I was greeted by the groom and the groomsmen on my arrival and given a floral wreath as a traditional Tahitian welcome, which is similar to Nepal, except, it is given when you are leaving.

The bride and groom kindly hosted me for my stay and I had the most amazing adventure in Tahiti. It turns out the bride had been a wedding photographer in her previous profession and the groom had been the world micro-sufboard champion for 10 years (I think), and both are very well known locally.

The bride and groom both started the day on the Island of Tahiti. The bride getting ready in a hair salon in the capital, while the groom got ready in their home.

I started the day with the bridal party and then made my way to the groom and his wedding party. Tahiti follows French law, so the couple got married in their local town hall in Tahiti.

Once the ceremony was over, everyone made their way to the ferry to catch a boat to the very beautiful Moorea. Off the coast of Moorea is the ‘motu moea’, also known as ‘Moorea mayor beach’ which is owned by a family of the bride. It was amazing to walk around this motu. Breathtakingly beautiful.
