Tiff + Terepai // Byron Bay Destination Wedding // She Takes Pictures He Makes Films


Tiff + Terepai chose the perfect location for their three days of wedding bliss; the beautiful Byron Bay. Sun, surf, crystals, tipis… drumming and dancing, feasts and ferns… laughter, love and the moon.

Alastair and I were invited as She Takes Pictures He Makes Films to capture their amazing family’s love story.

We joined Terepai, his oldest son Tainui and his mates on an early morning surf; visited the healing surrounds of Crystal Castle with Tiff, her besties and her adorable little gentlemen Rocket and Fin; partied and soaked in the sun throughout the wedding day at the stunning The Grove Byron Bay; and relaxed at a chilled recovery breakfast at Secret Garden the following morning.

The wedding celebrated their diverse heritage with a special Polynesian ceremony performed by Terepai’s mum, sister and Aunts, laying brightly-coloured traditional linens around the embracing family. After a sun-kissed golden hour portrait session with the beautiful couple, everyone ate, drank and danced into the night (with special drumming solos from Terepai and little rockstar Fin).

We were absolutely honoured to have been part of it, and to have had the chance to meet so many incredible, fun and talented people along the way.
