"My wedding will not be going ahead," she said during Sunday's media conference.

"But I just join many other New Zealanders who have had an experience like that as a result of the pandemic and to anyone who’s caught up in that scenario, I am so sorry."

"We are all so resilient and I know we understand we are doing this for one another, and I know that will help us continue on."


Asked how she was feeling about it, Ardern said, "such is life".

"I am no different to... thousands of New Zealanders who have had much more devastating impacts felt by the pandemic. The most gutting of which is the ability to be with a loved one, sometimes when they're gravely ill."
