We are natural space designers and within our primary business Aroha Love, we have a broad range of holistic therapies, workshops, retreats, and ceremonies.  We hold four ceremonies at our space in Ponsonby each month. 

We love offering ceremonies and a safe place for people to come and feel grounded and open to different perspectives, healing with ceremonial grade cacao and sound therapy. 

Aroha Eco-Weddings + Sacred ceremonies are a natural progression for us to offer another branch from the Aroha tree; creating unique ceremonies, providing elements that are heart opening, sensual, sacred, and deeply honouring. We tune in to our client's intention and their personalities to create a beautiful and memorable experience.

Vow renewals, anniversaries, birthdays, sacred unions, and naming ceremonies are a few of the special life events that we have had the pleasure to create. Let us design an unforgettable and unique ceremony for you!

aroha guatemala shamanic wedding



Each year we take a small group of our clients to visit the incredible people, wildlife, scenery and mystical shamans of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. We have come to know and appreciate this beautiful and special pocket of our planet and many of the local shamans.

Shamanic weddings with Izaias and Izabel are one-of-a-kind and are steeped in their ancient Mayan traditions.

Using symbolic stones, cacao, traditional wraps, flowers, alter and fire ceremony, our friends respectfully honour each couple with a beautiful Mayan wedding.

They call upon the spirits of the world, the fire, the sun, the moon, and the stars and make sacred offerings to the spirits and our ancestors.

Weddings in Guatemala are performed at ancestral sacred altars, surrounded by the magical energy of the Lake Atitlan volcanoes. Here you will each be gifted with initiation, beauty, grace, love, ancient tradition and your Mayan Nahuales (symbol representing your time and date of birth) in traditional Guatemalan Jade.

The Aroha team take all the hard work out for you; flights, accommodation, catering, entertainment and décor creating a one-of-a-kind experience for you.

To begin, fill out our contact form and let us design and plan an unforgettable and unique shamanic celebration for you.
