Downing Street has confirmed that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson married partner Carrie Symonds over the weekend.
The couple tied the knot at Westminster Cathedral on Saturday afternoon, with a small group of friends and family in attendance for the ceremony.
Reports of the marriage started circulating on Saturday, with a spokesperson confirming the next morning: “The Prime Minister and Ms Symonds tied the knot yesterday afternoon in a small ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.”
PA reported that the celebration will take place in July 2022, with Symonds set to take the last name of her new husband, known as Carrie Johnson from Saturday.
An official photo of the pair was also released on their wedding day, with the bride wearing a white dress and floral headband, while the prime minister wears a black suit with a blue tie.
According to The Sun, Westminster Cathedral was cleaned by staff on Saturday at 1:30 p.m., who told visitors it “was going to be closed.”
The wedding was celebrated by Father Daniel Humphreys, who gave the couple pre-marriage instructions and oversaw the baptism of their son Wilfred, born in 2020.
This is the first marriage for Carrie Johnson, 33, while it is the Prime Minister’s third.
He was previously married to artist and journalist Allegra Mostyn-Owen between 1987 and 1993, and lawyer and journalist Marina Wheeler.
Johnson and Wheeler’s divorce was finalized in 2020.
