Cape Town - All Black star flyhalf Beauden Barrett and his bride, Hannah Laity, tied the knot on Rakino Island, northeast of Auckland on Saturday.

A local resident told the Stuff website that helicopters had been flying in all day and that the luxury Hurakia Lodge, believed to be the venue, was an "excellent" site.

The lodge charges up NZ$45 000 (R420 000) for a wedding of 130 guests which includes a "dramatic" helicopter entrance for the bride and groom, and a ferry charter for guests.

It also includes a night for the happy couple in the "grand master suite".

A menu from the wedding showed the guests would be sipping on Moet champagne, Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, or Otago Pinot Noir, and Heineken or Tiger beer.

The much anticipated vows followed a day of All Black star spotting. 

In an Instagram story, Hanna Tevita - girlfriend of All Black Nehe Milner-Skudder - posted a video of what looks like Laity's bridesmaids looking relaxed while make-up artists gets them ready for the big event.

Israel Dagg posted on Instagram he was "wedding ready" along with wife Daisy and another friend.

Sam Whitelock was spotted on Waiheke Island. 

In an Instagram post by businessman Sir Peter Leitch, Whitelock was snapped on the island after a morning kayak.

Fatima Savea, wife of former All Black and Hurricanes wing Julian Savea, on Saturday morning posted a story to on her Instagram account of her getting her hair done in Takapuna.

In the lead up to their wedding day, Barrett has played golf with Kiwi US Open winner Michael Campbell and a bunch of mates.

Barrett, 27, and Laity, 24, announced their engagement on social media last year, after Barrett popped the question at the Tokoriki Island Resort in Fiji.

Laity is a chartered accountant and has a large social media following, which she uses for influencing and boosting products to the public.

Barrett is expected to spend 2020 playing in Japan after his Hurricanes Super Rugby commitments and his key New Zealand Rugby World Cup role this year.
