Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern continues to broadcast details of her marriage, revealing that she will marry partner Clarke Gayford in Gisborne.
Last week, Ardern announced that she had finally set a date for the wedding, more than two years after Gayford’s proposal.
She has yet to reveal the actual date, saying she wants guests to jump into accommodation in the small town.
âI’m not sure I want a situation where before I invite people who really want to be there, I just broadcast it,â she told The AM Show.
“Accommodation is slightly limited in Gisborne.”

After being congratulated for choosing the Tairawhiti for the wedding, she replied, “Where else?”
Ardern and Gayford spend their summer vacations in the area, known for its laid back lifestyle, beautiful beaches and great summer weather.
The wedding has been eagerly awaited since the two got engaged over Easter two years ago.
Gayford posed the question in the same region, on the neighboring Mahia Peninsula.
Marriages with a current head of government are extremely rare: Australia has never seen a sitting Prime Minister marry.
Ardern also first became a mother while in office when she gave birth to daughter Neve in June 2018.
A gift from the two year old featured on the Prime Minister’s Instagram for Mother’s Day.
“Happy Mother’s Day. I love you and I’m going to the water park. I love Neve xxxxx, âthe card read.
