Symonds, who was the Conservative Party's head of communications before joining a marine conservation organization, is Johnson's third wife.

Around 30 guests attended Saturday's service - the maximum now allowed under coronavirus rules - in central London, after being invited at the last minute, according to the Mail on Sunday.

The couple have reportedly sent save-the-date cards to family and friends for a celebration on July 30, 2022.

His Downing Street office says they were married Saturday in a small private ceremony in London.

"The couple will celebrate their wedding with family and friends next summer", Johnson's office said.

He is only the second British prime minister to marry while in office, and the first in almost two centuries with Robert Jenkinson the last in 1822.

The new Mrs Johnson - who has confirmed she will take her husband's surname - wore a white dress to exchange vows with the prime minister. They announced their engagement in December 2019.

A spokeswoman for Johnson's Downing Street office declined to comment. Mr Johnson proposed while the pair were on holiday in Mustique. Their son was born in April of previous year.

He was previously married to Allegra Mostyn-Owen. So many weddings have been delayed and disrupted by covid.

But dancing is advised against due to the increased risk of transmission, except the couple's traditional first dance.

Northern Ireland's First Minister Arlene Foster also wished them a "huge congratulations" on the micro-blogging site.

His former top aide, Dominic Cummings, on Wednesday told lawmakers that Johnson had bungled the government's response to the coronavirus pandemic and said he was "unfit for the job".

Johnson, who is 56, and Symonds, who is 33, have been living together in Downing Street since he became prime minister in 2019.
