What has Number 10 said about the wedding?

Few details have been released about the wedding, but Number 10 did make a statement.

A rep said: “The Prime Minister and Ms Symonds were married yesterday afternoon in a small ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.

“The couple will celebrate their wedding with family and friends next summer.”

However, a source close to the couple – who started dating in 2018 – did reveal more details of the day.

The event was apparently six months in the planning, with the 30 guests invited right at the last minute.

The ceremony was officiated by Father Daniel Humphreys, who baptised Wilfred last year.

An insider also revealed that Boris “couldn’t take his eyes off” Carrie as she walked down the aisle.

“She came down the aisle and he didn’t take his eyes off her. They read their vows then shared a kiss. They looked besotted,” they told The Sun.

A source close to Carrie also revealed: “They are both absolutely thrilled. The whole thing has been conducted amid great secrecy and planned meticulously.

“It was just their secret and that made the day so special.”

New details emerge

Late this afternoon, new details and a second photo were released.

James Cleverly, who worked with the PM when he was London Mayor, shared a picture of a barefoot Carrie in the garden posing with her new husband.

Boris had taken off his jacket and tie and rolled up his sleeves in the relaxed photo.

The picture also gave away details of the celebration that took place after the wedding.

The wedding had a summer festival theme, with hay bales, bunting and the bride going barefoot.

It was also revealed that Carrie will now be known as Mrs Johnson.
