New Zealand First MP Shane Jones married his partner Dot Pumipi on an idyllic Pacific Island beach today.

The couple tied the knot before about 60 guests, including Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters, at the Rarotongan Beach Resort under an archway of frangipani and palm trees.

Photos show the couple embracing on a white-sanded beach with flowers in their hair before a turquoise Pacific Ocean.
