This is the first picture of Boris Johnson and the new bride, Carrie Symonds, after getting married in a low-key ceremony that is planned in strict secrecy.
The couple exchanged vows in front of a small group of close friends and family at Westminster Cathedral on Saturday.
Initially Downing Street did not want to comment on reports of the wedding, but on Sunday morning a spokesman said: “The Prime Minister and Ms. Symonds were married in a small ceremony at Westminster Cathedral yesterday afternoon.
“The couple will celebrate their wedding with family and friends next summer.”
They are said to have sent save-the-date cards to family and friends for the celebration on July 30, 2022.
It is believed that Ms. Symonds will take her husband’s last name and will be known as Carrie Johnson.
The post-wedding snapshot of # 10 of the couple in the Downing Street garden saw them staring at each other with Mrs. Johnson in a long white dress and floral headband and the Prime Minister in a dark suit and blue tie with a white flower his buttonhole.
The couple announced their engagement in February last year – along with news that they were expecting their first child.
It is Mr Johnson’s third marriage after finalizing his divorce from second wife, Marina Wheeler, in 2020. He and wife Johnson have a son, Wilfred, who was born in April 2020.

The wedding ceremony at the Catholic Cathedral was conducted by Father Daniel Humphreys, who gave the couple pre-marriage directions and baptized Wilfred last year. The sun reported.
Shortly after 1.30 p.m., the cathedral was suddenly evacuated by visitors. The staff said it would be banned, the newspaper said.
Half an hour later a limousine drove the bride into the piazza in front of the main door of the west.
The ceremony signified that Mr Johnson was the first Prime Minister to marry in office since Lord Liverpool married Mary Chester in 1822.
