We are so lucky in Wellington to have so many very cool options for wedding photography locations! Whether you are after a funky urban vibe or prefer to get up close with nature, or prefer rolling hills or beachy coastlines, Wellington has it all. Below are a few of our favourite places to have your wedding photos taken in our cool little capital!


Being a harbour city, Wellington has an abundance of amazing beaches along it's coast line that make for some very nice photo locations especially during sunset! The sandy dunes also provide beautiful long grass photo opportunities! Some of our favourites include Breaker Bay on the Miramar Peninsula, Houghton Bay on the southern coast, and the Petone Foreshore.

Views & Sunsets: Whitirea Park, Titahi Bay

Just a short drive north of Wellington, at the back of Titahi Bay is Whitirea Park. With stunning views overlooking Mana Island and catching the last of the evening sun this is a stunning wedding photo location for views and sunsets. Just down the road is a lovely little beach with wonderful long grass for an extra photo opportunity! 

Tree Cover: Southern Walkway, Te Ahumairangi Hill, Belmont Park, Kaitoke Regional Park

Wedding photos among tall trees is probably the most requested location by our couples, and for good reason! There is something majestic, yet calming about standing in a wooded forest, creating romantic 'stolen moment' photo opportunties. Our favourite spot is along Wellington's southern Walkway, particularly in the Southgate area. 

Urban City Vibe: Wellington Waterfront Buildings, Chews Lane, Egmont Street

Wellington has such an incredible artistic culture that translates into epic urban wedding photos! With hidden alley ways, classic and modern architecture, and a buzzing cafe and bar scene, there are so many options to choose from.
