Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s ‘secret’ wedding to Carrie Symonds might have escaped the eyes of the press but there was no getting past Big Issue vendor Adrian Richmond.
Adrian was one of the few onlookers outside Westminster Cathedral as the pair tied the knot in the wedding of the year on May 29.
The 52-year-old seller, who has sold the magazine outside the cathedral for a decade, was quoted in The Sun wishing the pair well after the happy couple managed to sneak through the ceremony in secret.
He said: “Somebody I recognise came out of a service there earlier in the day and said, “You won’t believe who’s getting married here later!” He said, “It’s Boris Johnson”.
“My jaw nearly dropped to the floor. This is smack bang in central London.
“We are from different worlds but I feel he is on our side.”
