Boris Johnson wedding – Carrie Symonds & Prime Minister to delay honeymoon as couple congratulated for 'secret' marriage

CHIC bride Carrie Symonds rented a designer hippy dress for her wedding to Boris Johnson — for just £45.

The Prime Minister, 56, wearing a suit and Tory blue tie, and the new Mrs Johnson, 33, tied the knot in a top-secret ceremony on Saturday.

She married the PM in a £2,900 dress by a Greek luxury designer – and it's already sold out.

It is the Prime Minister's third marriage, having previously wedded Allegra Mostyn-Owen and Marina Wheeler.

Boris and Carrie got engaged in February 2020, before welcoming the pair's first child – Wilfred – two months later.

But the nuptials come just days after the couple were making headlines for the wrong reasons after former senior adviser Dominic Cummings spoke at a select committee hearing this week. Cummings claimed that Carrie had been trying to 'appoint her friends to particular jobs' within the Government.

    BORIS JOHNSON & WIFE CARRIE SHARE TOUCHING WEDDING DAY PICTURE IN DOWNING STREET GARDEN AFTER SECRET CEREMONY

    BORIS Johnson and his wife Carrie Symonds have shared the first pictures from their secret wedding ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.

    The beaming couple looked besotted in the garden of No10 after their small wedding yesterday – with a larger celebration with friends and family to take place next summer.

    Adorned in a flower crown, the bride looked stunning as she stepped out wearing a flowing white dress. Instead of a veil, Carrie’s floral headpiece matched the bud placed in the Prime Minister’s buttonhole.

    And Boris looked smart in a dapper suit and accompanying blue tie – while he looked adoringly into his wife’s eyes.

    The pair wed during a small secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral yesterday, as revealed first by The Sun.

    NHS CHIEF WARNS OF HOSPITAL PRESSURES AS JOHNSON FACES DECISION ON LOCKDOWN

    Boris Johnson faces a difficult decision about whether to end England’s lockdown on June 21 with hospitals already under “worrying” pressure, a health chief has warned.

    The continued spread of the Indian coronavirus variant has cast doubt on the ability to scrap restrictions, with ministers considering plans to keep some measures – such as the continued use of face masks and guidance on working from home – in place.

    NHS Providers chief executive Chris Hopson said hospital bosses were concerned about the transmissibility of the B1617.2 variant and the large number of people who have still to receive doses of the vaccine.

    He warned that although hospitals were not expecting to be overwhelmed by a surge of Covid-19 cases, they were already stretched by going “full pelt” on dealing with the backlog of cases built up during the pandemic and urgent care needs.

    Hospitals are operating under reduced capacity due to Covid-19 restrictions and increased numbers of coronavirus patients will add to difficulties by requiring wards to be reconfigured, he added.

    CARRIE SYMONDS TO TAKE BORIS JOHNSON’S NAME AS SHE BECOMES PM’S WIFE

    It is understood Ms Symonds will take her husband’s surname and be known as Carrie Johnson.

    A picture issued by No 10 of the couple in Downing Street’s garden after the wedding saw them gazing at each other with Mrs Johnson wearing a long white dress and a floral headband and the Prime Minister a dark suit and blue tie, with a white flower in his buttonhole.

    The couple announced their engagement – together with the news that they were expecting their first child – in February last year.

    Their son, Wilfred, was born in April 2020.

    It is Mr Johnson’s third marriage, having finalised his divorce from his second wife, Marina Wheeler, in 2020.
