After several postponements, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen finally said “ja” as her wedding with film director Bo Tengberg pushed through on Wednesday.

The prime minister shared the news on her social media accounts by posting a photo that captured her as a beaming bride in a white wedding dress and holding Tengberg’s hand outside of a church. She captioned the photo, “Ja” (Yes) with a heart emoji.

The wedding took place on Wednesday afternoon in Magleby Church on Møn where the couple has a holiday home, according to Ritzau.

Postponed by work
The couple first planned their wedding in 2019 but it kept getting postponed. The elections last year followed by the coronavirus pandemic held off their plans.

The wedding was again scheduled on July 18 but had to be moved due to an EU summit.

“I have to do my work and take care of Denmark’s interests. So we have to change plans again. Soon we should be able to get married. I’m looking forward to saying yes to Bo (who fortunately is very patient),” Frederiksen said in a Facebook post in June.

Met through friends
Frederiksen, 42, met Tengberg through mutual friends in 2014.

The couple has since been seen together in public several times.

The prime minister has two children from a previous marriage.
