The correct spelling of the waterfall is clearly identified on the photograph. It was re-named in the 1930s' in the interest of tourism. In 2007 Mōtakotako Marae requested the NZ Geographical Board reinstate the original name 'Waireinga' to this special place. It now bears the dual name Waireinga/ Bridal Veil Falls
