Chequers Chucked: Boris Johnson Won’t Hold Wedding Bash At Country Residence

Boris and Carrie Johnson will not hold their wedding party at the prime minister’s country residence, sources have told HuffPost UK.

The couple were reportedly ploughing on with plans for a bash at Chequers as Johnson shifts to a caretaker role in his final days in office.

However, they have now decided to move the party’s location following criticism of the plan.

The pair married in a low-key, private ceremony at Westminster Cathedral last year and planned to have a larger celebration in 2022, when coronavirus restrictions were likely to be relaxed.

The Johnsons were said to have sent save-the-date cards to family and friends for the celebration on July 30.

However, a Downing Street source told HuffPost UK there would be no wedding bash at Chequers.

The planned wedding party is instead being moved to a different location at the end of this month, sources told The Sun.

The Evening Standard reported last month that the party would take the form of a “champagne-soaked soiree” to celebrate the couple’s first anniversary.

The Mirror said it was told by two separate sources that the pair were keen to go ahead with the celebrations.

On Friday morning a Cabinet minister suggested any new prime minister should let the couple have their wedding party at Chequers.

James Cleverly told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “Private functions like that do not impose a burden on the public purse…

“I think it’s churlish to be negative about two people who want to celebrate their marriage and their love for each other.”
