He and Carrie will be joined by close friends and some of Mr Johnson’s political allies for the bash.
The Tory leader’s sister sister Rachel, their 81-year-old father Stanley and MPs Jacob Rees-Mogg and Nadine Dorries have all been seen heading in.
Around 200 guests will enjoy a night of luxury at the 1,500 acre property, which boasts a heart-shaped orchard, an 18th century orangery and a pool.
The manor is owned by Tory mega-donor Lord Bamford.
Around a dozen Conservative MPs are believed to have been invited – although not everyone made the cut.
Michael Gove was initially on the guest list. However, he was given the chop after Mr Johnson fired him from the Cabinet, it’s reported.
Sajid Javid’s attendance is also in doubt after he sparked a coup by resigning last month.
Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak are sure to miss the party as they campaign to become the next PM.
The visitors who did manage to cling onto their invites will relax on hay bales outside a swanky marquee as they enjoy the views across the estate.
They’ll be served South African street food during their stay.
Mr and Mrs Johnson secretly married last year in front of just 30 guests at a church in Westminster during the pandemic.
It’s thought they had hoped to celebrate their special day in style for some time.
However, they were forced to delay repeatedly as Mr Johnson faced a series of crises that eventually led to his reluctant resignation.
The couple had initially planned to celebrate their marriage with a party at Chequers, the Prime Minister’s Chilterns home.
They were forced to change their plans after last month’s political turmoil.
Downing Street has refused to comment on the occasion.
A spokesperson said it does not discuss private events which do not involve taxpayer funds or ministerial declarations.
Nadine Dorries didn’t look thrilled to see the press as she arrived
Jacob Rees-Mogg beamed for the cameras
Those invited to the posh bash will be served South African street food from a catering van and take a seat on a rustic hay bale
