Carrie Symonds’s wedding dress was a boho number. The relatively relaxed gown suited the pared-down day.

The Prime Minister’s wife, with whom he shares a son, wore a £2,870 Christos Costarellos wedding dress.

The gown featured lace applique on a light tulle material.

The 70s inspired gown featured a tiered skirt, a high neckline, and flared sleeves.

Carrie, who met Boris while working for the Conservative Party, went barefoot for her reception.

Commentators discussed the gown online, many complimenting Carrie’s taste.

One said: “Can’t believe I’m saying this but Carrie Symonds dress is gorgeous.”

Another wrote: “I love Carrie’s outfit. Beautiful dress and wonderful floral headband.”

“Can’t help it. I LOVE Carrie Symonds’ dress,” one fan wrote, while another said, “Lovely bohemian style dress, makes a change from all the frothy meringues!”

One said: “ALL politics aside, Carrie Symonds wedding dress was divine.”

“The bride looks utterly stunning – the dress is beautiful – and her husband totally smitten. Good luck to the pair of them,” another wrote.

A number of people made comparisons to another famous wedding dress, the one worn in Forrest Gump.

Jenny, Forrest’s love interest, was the ultimate hippie bride, also going barefoot for the movie wedding.

Jenny is a free spirit at heart, her character epitomises the 70s hippie, living in San Francisco, experimenting with drugs and participating in the anti-Vietnam war protests.

Jenny also wore a whimsical flower crown to marry Forrest at the fictional wedding.

One Twitter user wrote: “Her outfit reminds me very much of Forrest Gump’s wife (and I don’t mean that in a nasty way).

“The other photo Carrie is barefoot too, like Jenny. Maybe it’s her favourite film too.”

One wrote: “Now, I ain’t being nasty, but on first viewing is Carrie’s dress the one worn by Jenny in Forest Gump? #BorisAndCarrie.”

One called the look “Forrest Gump cosplay” noting the “heavy floral crown, 70s style dress, bare feet.”

The look wasn’t for everyone though.

One wrote: “‘Barefoot’ boho. Yawn. #Carrie.”

The look also compared the dress to a horror film, Midsommar by Ari Aster.

The cinematic masterpiece sees American tourists visit a Swedish town for a festival.

One wrote: “Carrie is giving strong Midsommar vibes here.”

“Carrie Symonds in Midsommar fancy dress,” one said.

Another namechecked a different pagan horror flick.

They said: “Can’t work out whether Carrie Johnson née Symonds’s garb was more Wicker Man or Midsommar.”
