The couple, who married on Saturday, have kept their honeymoon plans secret. But Expressen reported on Tuesday that the couple had arrived on Tahiti in the Pacific Ocean in a private jet owned by family friend Bertil Hult, owner of the EF language training company.

The couple, who are reportedly accompanied by three bodyguards from the Swedish Security Service, slipped away almost unnoticed from their wedding reception in the small hours of Sunday morning. The Dassault Falcon 7X jet then took them from Stockholm to Tahiti's capital Papeete via Iceland and Vancouver.

From Papeete, they were reported to have travelled on to one of French Polynesia's smaller islands.

Story continues below…

"When they landed, a luxury yacht was waiting for them," according to Expressen's source. The yacht was due to take them to an unspecified final destination, the paper reported.

well, it is "Sweden's" News in English. The other stories mentioned will I'm sure have been covered by international news outlets.

As Byggare Bob so nicely pointed out, this is a news site for Swedish News. If you want international news, go to www.drudgereport.com. It'll very nicely compile all the latest and biggest news articles for you.

Now, with regards to the article, I hope the press can be sensitive enough to get the happy couple have some time by themselves, to fully enjoy their honeymoon. No one deserves a little privacy anymore than these two, they've put up with a LOT of scrutiny over the last few months.

As Byggare Bob pointed out. Its Sweden's News in English.

Let it Be Sweden's news in English and NOT SWEDEN'S TABLOID IN ENGLISH.

Honey moon is private matter of two individuals. Any one including local should not have intrests in it.

Once agin let it Sweden's News...and not ....the tabloid.

Well said Sarah :-)

Surely much of the charm of being in French Polynesia rests in enjoying the islands while staying in over-water bungalows instead of on a boat or in Tahiti.

Moorea and Bora Bora are lovely, with many nice (yes, expensive too) places to stay. I hope to return a few more times and would minimize time in Tahiti or staying on a boat which can be done anywhere.
