Onlookers initially thought the woman was a wellwisher — as she ran from a crowd of villagers and hurled the paper at the ex-Chancellor and his new wife when they appeared after the service for photos.
But she then turned away grinning and was ushered from the scene by a security guard before running off.
Just Stop Oil later tweeted: “You look good in orange @George_Osborne — congratulations to the newlyweds.”
Mr Osborne, 52, had walked down the aisle with his former Treasury adviser Thea Rogers, 40, at a picturesque church in Bruton, Somerset — where he owns a £1.6million house.
Mr Osborne got engaged to his now-wife in April 2021 and the pair have two sons, Beau and Arthur.
He also has two children, Liberty and Luke, from his first marriage to author Frances Howell.
The eco protest came after it was reported he asked police to investigate a poison pen letter circulated to guests on the eve of the wedding.
Friends said the email was the latest in a long-standing campaign of harassment against him, The Daily Telegraph reported.
Mr Osborne is understood to know the identity of the email’s author and has also begun civil proceedings.
His friends claim the alleged culprit has no connection to Mr Osborne or his bride.
