Jacinda Ardern reveals she and Clarke Gayford will get married in Gisborne

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has revealed she and fiancé Clarke Gayford will have their wedding in Gisborne.

Ardern told The AM Show the couple had set a date for their wedding, but wouldn't let slip on when it would be until they told their guests.

"We haven't actually told anyone that we have invited yet, so I feel like we need to tell everyone first and then I'll tell you."

However she said they would tell everyone soon because: "accommodation is slightly limited in Gisborne".

Ardern confirmed to Coast Radio on Wednesday the nuptials would take place this summer - and hinted that they might be somewhat untraditional. 

She said she felt "a bit too old to have a bridal party", and may "forgo it" because she was "getting on a bit". 

Gayford proposed to Ardern over Easter weekend in 2019 on a hilltop in Mahia, which lies between Napier and Gisborne.
