Boris Johnson latest: Prime Minister & Carrie Symonds delay honeymoon as congratulations flood in after secret wedding

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.

    FLAK OVER WEDDING TO 'DEFLECT DOMINIC CUMMINGS' TESTIMONY'

    Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds' big wedding day followed a difficult week for the PM in which his former aide Dominic Cummings branded him unfit for office.

    Labour former frontbencher, Jon Trickett, said the wedding was "a good way to bury this week's bad news" on Mr Cummings' testimony, the spread of the Indian coronavirus variant and the row about funding of the Downing Street flat.

    Fellow Labour MP Tonia Antoniazzi suggested the "emergency marriage plan" was an attempt to "deflect from negative press" from Mr Cummings.

    She tweeted: "They know he won't be able to plan one in Chequers cos he won't be PM next year…"

    CARRIE TAKING BORIS'S SURNAME

    It is understood that the PM's new wife will take his 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.

    Mrs Johnson's gown was reportedly a £2,870 Costarellos creation – although the Telegraph reported she may have hired it for £45 a day.

    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.
