Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern reveals she and Clarke Gayford have set wedding date

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has revealed she and her fiance Clarke Gayford have set a date for their wedding. 

Speaking to Coast Radio on Wednesday morning, Ardern said the couple have "finally" decided when to get hitched, but "that doesn't mean they've told anyone yet". 

"I feel like we should probably put some invites out," she added. 

The Prime Minister wouldn't share the exact date, but confirmed the nuptials would take place this summer - and hinted that they might be somewhat untraditional. 

Ardern 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. 

Speaking to press in March this year from Hawke's Bay, Ardern teased that she might consider getting married there because it was a "beautiful part of the country" and there was "a lot of pressure to make it local". 

"Why wouldn't I?" she asked at the time.
