Jacinda Ardern Weds Clarke Gayford

New Zealand’s former prime minister Jacinda Ardern and her longtime partner Clarke Gayford finally tied the knot in a private ceremony on Saturday after cancelling their wedding plans due to the strict COVID-19 controls imposed by the government.

Ardern, 43, and Gayford, 47, had scheduled their wedding for early 2022 after getting engaged in May 2019 but had to postpone it due to the pandemic, according to Reuters.

Finally, after a five-year engagement, the couple’s wedding took place in Hawke’s Bay at Craggy Range Winery on the North Island’s east coast, approximately 310 km (190 miles) north of Wellington, according to an Ardern spokesperson.

Ardern, who turned into a worldwide symbol for left-inclining legislative issues, was seen grinning wearing a white strap neck dress in official photographs close by Gayford who wore a dark suit.

Two or three’s five-year-old little girl Neve strolled down the path with her dad, wearing a dress made of texture from her grandma Laurell Ardern’s wedding dress, the New Zealand Envoy detailed.

The lady of the hour showed up encompassed by a few group holding umbrellas under the warm Hawke’s Narrows sun. At 4 pm, she strolled down a 30-meter-long path, as music played behind her from a confined grape plantation.

The service finished soon after 4:30 pm, with cheers from the visitors partaking in the function and the warm weather conditions consumed the space, making it a noteworthy occasion.

Ardern and Gayford, presently a couple, should have been visible blending with the visitors in front of the gathering.

As indicated by the news site Stuff, the pair’s extraordinary day was gone to by approximately 50 to 75 visitors. The visitors included resistance pioneer Chris Hipkins, Ardern’s replacement as state head, the New Zealand Messenger said.

Ardern who also became a global icon for women in leadership as prime minister from 2017, gave her final speech in January last year, where she told Gayford, a New Zealand television presenter, “Let’s finally get married.”
