THE Prime Minister and Carrie Symonds held a small and discreet wedding ceremony today – tying the knot this morning in Westminster Cathedral.
The couple had previously announced that they would marry next summer, on 30th July, 2022, yet brought the wedding forward
According to reports, a small group of 30 friends and family witnessed the nuptials after receiving last-minute invites; with Carrie Symonds walking down the aisle to classical music.
With the busy London cathedral being cleared of visitors and closed-off at around 1:30pm, a limo carrying Symonds, who was wearing a white dress but no veil, arrived half-an-hour later.
The ceremony was carried out by Father Daniel Humphreys, who baptised their one-year-old son Wilfred last year.
Mr Johnson is now the first Prime Minister to marry in office since Lord Liverpool married Mary Chester in 1822.
Northern Ireland’s First Minister Arlene Foster tweeted: “Huge congratulations to Boris Johnson & Carrie Symonds on your wedding today.”
Number 10 have so-far declined to issue a statement, with the newlyweds expected to issue their own announcements shortly.
