Muriwai setting for PM’s big day

Widespread media reports in recent days have indicated Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her fiance Clarke Gayford will tie the knot in a wedding at Nicks Head Station at Muriwai, in late January.

The reports also indicated that global chart-topper and Grammy Award-winner Lorde would sing for the couple and their wedding guests.

The PM and Mr Gayford, who is from Gisborne, announced their engagement at Easter in 2019.

Nicks Head Station is owned by hedge fund billionaire John Griffin and his wife Amy.

The NZ Herald reported at the weekend that the farm homestead is in the process of being renovated for the second time in a matter of months, ahead of the wedding.

A spokesperson for the Prime Minister told The Herald: “This is a private event for the couple and their families.

“We hope everyone respects that and we won't be commenting on any plans or details.” — NZ Herald
