The Prime Minister of Britain, Boris Johnson, married his fiancée Carrie Symonds in a secret ceremony held over the past weekend at Westminster Cathedral.
This event took place on May 29 however not much details about it were revealed since it was of a private nature. The office of the Prime Minister confirmed the reports to media houses.
“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,” said the office of Britain’s Prime Minister.
Only a small group of close friends and family member witnessed the pair exchanging vows. This makes Jonson the first Prime Minister to marry while in office since 1882 when Lord Liverpool married Mary Chester.
The ceremony was officiated by Father Daniel Humphreys, who also baptized their one-year old son Wilfred last year.
One witness said that the church was closed for approximately one and half hours on the wedding day.
“It’s not very often we have weddings here, and when they came out they were all bungled into a car,” said the witness.
