He took some time off to get mar­ried, but don’t ex­pect Porirua’s mayor to sail off on hon­ey­moon right away.

Nick Leggett mar­ried Emily Pita at St Theresa’s Catholic Par­ish in Plim­mer­ton on Fri­day af­ter­noon. The church was filled to burst­ing with guests.

The cou­ple and close fam­ily and friends then en­joyed a re­cep­tion at Ruth Pretty Cater­ing in Te Horo.

Leggett said it was a fan­tas­tic day, free of any drama.

‘‘It was ev­ery­thing we wanted it to be – very re­laxed and fun and ev­ery­one had a great time. It was cold but there was no rain and we ended up get­ting some great out­door pho­tos. We were so lucky to be given some ad­vice on where to have them taken and they turned out ab­so­lutely great.’’

Leggett at­tended en­gage­ments on Satur­day in his ca­pac­ity as mayor, in­clud­ing the open­ing of Billy Gra­ham’s box­ing academy in Can­nons Creek. A hon­ey­moon away would have to wait a week, he said, but he and Emily were look­ing for­ward to some time out.
