Christos Costarellos is the man who dressed Carrie Symonds for her secret wedding to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in May 2021.

Carrie Symonds and Boris Johnson have managed to round off a couple of years of lockdowns, uncertainty and negative press by tying the knot on May 29th. The couple got engaged in 2019 and welcomed their son, Wilfred, in 2020.

Boris was previously married to Marina Wheeler for 27 years. The couple separated after 25 and share four children together. Boris’ relationships haven’t got without a fair deal of media attention, but in his secret wedding to Carrie, it looks as though the couple, and the 30 guests in attendance, got some privacy for the day.
