Jacinda Ardern teases Hawke's Bay as possible location of her wedding to Clarke Gayford

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has teased a possible location for her upcoming wedding to Clarke Gayford. 

Ardern spoke to media at Hawke's Bay, where she was asked if she might consider tying the knot in the region seeing as she got engaged in Mahia, which lies between Napier and Gisborne. 

"There's a lot of pressure to make it local, and why wouldn't I?" Ardern replied.

"It's a beautiful part of the country." 

"It wasn't a no!" she added. 

Gayford, who hails from nearby Gisborne, proposed to Ardern with his grandmother's engagement ring over Easter weekend in 2019 at the top of Mokotahi Hill in Mahia. 

Late last year, the Prime Minister said she and her fiance had "some plans" in place for a wedding, but they were "some way off". 

"We might need to share some of our plans with our family and friends before we do that more widely," she said at the time.

Ardern and Gayford are parents to two-year-old Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford.
