The UK Prime Minister appeared on a People’s PMQs event earlier this month in which he addressed the future of the wedding and hospitality industry. Lara, a business owner from Cornwall, revealed that she had lost 100% of business this year, and also had to cancel her own wedding, before addressing Boris’ own nuptials.

“You are supposed to be getting married so hopefully…” she said.
Boris quickly replied, “I didn’t want to drag that in, I will have to take that one offline as they say…”
It was believed that Boris and Carrie had hopes to tie the knot in August 2020, after Boris sparked speculation when he announced that from the 1st of the month, couples would be able to hold wedding receptions with up to 30 guests.

Nonetheless, the couple remain a fiancé and fiancée.
Boris went on to share that Easter 2021 could be a pivotal moment for weddings. “I think that mass testing will help before Easter, hopefully, well before Easter, but I think you should be able to plan for a really much more active summer, and lots of happy nuptial events all over the UK.”
Boris and Carrie, however, are also expecting their first child in the “early summer”, and so it’s unlikely that they will be in a position to plan their big day for the same time of year.
Boris’ wedding with Carrie will mark his third marriage, following his divorce from Marina Wheeler earlier this year, while Boris and Carrie’s wedding will make history with Boris becoming the first Prime Minister to marry in office since the Earl of Grafton in 1769.
