The confirmation comes after aides refused to comment for hours on the Catholic service, which was conducted in utmost secrecy before it was revealed by the Mail on Sunday.
Despite the evasion, ministers, Tory MPs and Labor leader Keir Starmer openly congratulated the prime minister on his marriage.
A Downing Street spokesman said: “The Prime Minister and Mrs. Symonds were married yesterday afternoon in a small ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.
“The couple will be celebrating their wedding with family and friends this summer.”

Despite sending the cards, the couple is believed to have secretly planned the small ceremony for six months – with questions about whether the save the date cards were used to ward people off the scent.

One-year-old Wilfred attended the wedding, as did two official witnesses. Ms. Symonds shared a photo of their son yesterday in a field of bluebells – which some speculated was a nod to the tradition of ‘something blue’.
Johnson’s brother Rachel, Jo and Leo Johnson also attended, along with his father Stanley.
The Prime Minister’s top advisers in Issue 10 were reportedly amazed that the secret wedding had taken place.
