The Cathedral was cleared Saturday afternoon, The Sun claims, as visitors were whisked out of the building — unaware of the wedding that was about to take place.
An alleged staff member told the publication: ‘Yes, there was a wedding. It was the Prime Minister.
‘Carrie looked beautiful. She had a long white dress with no veil. She looked made up.
‘He was extremely happy as you can imagine, he looked very smart, and was in a very dapper suit.© Provided by Extra.ie The Cathedral was reportedly cleared Saturday afternoon as visitors were whisked out of the building — unaware of the wedding that was about to take place.

‘She came down the aisle and he didn’t take his eyes off her.
‘They read each other’s vows and then they shared a kiss. They looked besotted.’
Their ceremony comes just six days after the pair reportedly sent out save-the-date cards to guests to keep Saturday July 30, 2021 free for a marriage celebration.

The birth came two days after Mr Johnson returned to work in Downing Street.
The former Mayor of London was absent for three weeks due to COVID-19.
Miss Symonds also appeared to be struck down with the virus and was bedridden with symptoms, however she made a full recovery.
