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 lapel.

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.

And a No10 spokesman said today: “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.”

At 2pm, half an hour after the church suddenly locked down, a limo containing Carrie swept into the piazza by the main west door.

The Prime Minister, 56, and his bride, 33, then walked down the aisle of the tiny Lady Chapel to classical music and shared a kiss after their vows were read.

Their year-old son Wilfred was there to see the happy occasion, along with two official witnesses.

A source close to Carrie said: “They are both absolutely thrilled.

"The whole thing has been conducted amid great secrecy and planned meticulously.

“It was just their secret and that made the day so special.”

The event was six months in the planning – and fewer than 30 guests had been invited, all of whom were told at the last minute.

They were thought to include Boris’s dad Stanley and sister Julia, who were seen at No10 yesterday.

A marquee was later spotted in the garden, with guests singing Don McLean’s American Pie.  

The ceremony was carried out by Father Daniel Humphreys, who baptised Wilfred last year.

A witness told how the cathedral went into lockdown around 1.30pm.

They said: “It was closed for about half an hour and they all came out after.

“It’s not often we have weddings here, and when they came out they were all bundled into a car. It looked like they didn’t want anyone to know who it was.”

A member of staff said: “Yes, there was a wedding – it was the Prime Minister. His bride looked beautiful. She had a long dress with no veil. She looked made up.

“He was extremely happy, as you can imagine. He looked very smart in a very dapper suit.

“She came down the aisle and he didn’t take his eyes off her. They read their vows then shared a kiss. They looked besotted.”
