Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin has married his longtime partner.

The 34-year-old PM shared photos from her wedding to Markus Raikkonen, a former Finnish footballer, on her Instagram account, showing the couple posing together while holding a bouquet of white flowers.

“I am happy and grateful to be able to share my life with the man I love,” she wrote.

Ms Marin said the couple had “shared joys and sorrows”, adding: “Thank you for being by my side.”

The wedding took place in Kesaranta – the official residence of the prime minister – on Saturday, the Finnish government said.

The couple’s family and closest friends attended.

Ms Marin wore a satin dress while the groom was dressed in a black tuxedo, and the couple were seen holding each other and smiling.

Wedding photographer Minttu Saarni said on Instagram that it was a “great honor” to capture their special day.

The couple have been together since they were teenagers and have a two-year-old daughter.

Ms Marin became Prime Minister of Finland in December and was at the time the youngest serving head of government in the world.

The Social Democrat is a staunch defender of environmental issues.

When she became Prime Minister, Finland’s coalition government was then made up of five parties, all led by women.
