Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s daugther has married her fiancée in a private ceremony in the Netherlands.

Reverend Mpho Tutu announced her civil union to her long-term partner Marceline Furth.

The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in the Netherlands earlier this week.

Furth is a South African HIV/AIDS activist, who has also campaign against poverty, racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia.

She is a professor in paediatric infectious diseases at the Vrije University in Amsterdam.

The Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation announced that the couple had tied the knot.

It is the second time both Tutu and Furth have married.

After holding a civil union ceremony in the Netherlands, the couple will marry in South Africa later this year.
