We had some photos taken by the lake after our wedding. It's a stunning setting, with the incredible colour of the water.

“Glacier fed lake, backdrop for bridal photos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2011

Surrounded by mountains in the distance, Lake Pukaki's waters are sourced from glaciers and are milky turquoise. It was a beautiful sunny day and the scenery was lovely. When we visited the lake, there was a couple taking their bridal photos there.
