The 44-year-old shared that she dreamt of having a large wedding filled to the brim with her and Richard’s loved ones but unfortunately the pandemic had made that impossible.

Sam said: “Because we want to have a party with more than 20 people, we have sort of put it on hold.”

She went on to add that they are not in any hurry to tie the knot.

“We will get married but put the planning on hold because there is no point until we can actually make a proper plan in booking anything so no plans yet but we will get there.”

The journalist shared her engagement with fans in late June.

Earlier this month her Sunrise co-star Edwina Bartholomew accidentally let slip that the couple would be celebrating their nuptials in a “paddock”.

“Happy birthday @sam_armytage Next time we are drunk in a paddock will be on your big day,” the 37-year-old captioned the post.

While Edwina didn't give any further details on where Sam plans on tying the knot, it is likely that she was referring to one of the rural properties owned by Sam and Richard in the Southern Highlands of NSW.
