DETAILED below is some early information about the PM’s planned wedding to Carrie Symonds at Chequers next year. Recipients are asked to ensure this document is not leaked.
The venue: Tribesmen from the endangered Amazon rainforest will sail to Britain on balsa wood rafts to build a traditional thatched community shelter on the lawn of Chequers, using sustainably-sourced palm leaves, organically-grown bamboo poles and reconstituted mangrove swamp mud.
Utilities: An 853ft high Haliade X wind turbine will be installed locally to supply clean, guilt-free power for the ceremony. This will involve demolishing a square mile of nearby Princes Risborough.
Dress: The bride will wear a Lulu Lytle-inspired wedding gown made from recycled curtain offcuts and a hat fashioned from gold wallpaper. The groom will wear a puzzled frown.
Musical accompaniment: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Children’s Choir – ‘the Carbon-Neutral Kids’ – will sing selections from their album The World’s Getter Warmer, But We’re Still Cool Dudes.
Best man (Man’s best friend): Dilyn the dog will accompany the groom with the wedding ring attached to his collar.
The ceremony: Because the bride may one day become Environment Secretary and have to devote herself to the job, her vows will say: ‘For better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, till DEFRA us do part’.
The reading: Greta Thunberg will address the congregation on the theme: Boris, You Lying B*****d, You’ve Stolen My Future and Still Haven’t Done Anything About It.
The blessing: To be administered by The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, on the theme: The Triumph of Hope Over Experience.
Prayers: They’re going to need them.
The wedding breakfast: Responsibly-foraged plants in season, including chickweed, bog myrtle, common scurvygrass, dandelions and hazelnut-nuts. An infusion of mugwort and nettles will also be offered.
(Guests should be advised that a polar bear will be allowed to mingle among them during the proceedings to raise awareness of the melting Arctic and Antarctic ice caps).
Carriages: The bride and groom will travel to their honeymoon staycation destination by VirtueSignaller® electric car, provided the wind has been blowing and the battery is charged. Otherwise they can take the No69 Chiltern Flyer Bus, which stops a mile away on the Aylesbury road.
