Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds marry in secret ceremony

Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds married in a small ceremony at Westminster Cathedral on Saturday, Downing Street has confirmed.

It was reported on Saturday evening that the couple had tied the knot in a secret ceremony, before it was then later confirmed.

The couple became engaged in 2019 and have a one-year-old son together.

The marriage is Mr Johnson’s third marriage, with him most recently separating from Marina Wheeler in 2018.

Originally, it had been reported that the couple had sent ‘save the date’ cards out to family and friends for celebrations on 30 July 2022.

In a statement on Sunday, a spokesperson for Downing Street 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.”

Work and Pensions Secretary Therese Coffey is among those that have congratulated the couple on their marriage. Writing on Twitter last night, Ms Coffey said, “Congratulations @BorisJohnson and @carriesymonds on your marriage today”.

Under current coronavirus restrictions, weddings can take place in England, however, they are limited to up to 30 people in COVID-secure venues.
