Congratulations, Elton & David!
Monday, December 22 2014

Elton and David have officially married – exactly nine years after they tied the knot in a civil partnership ceremony.

Elton married his partner at their Windsor estate on December 21, 2014, with a number of stars attending the ceremony. Elton has posted a photo of himself, pen in hand, sitting next to David at a desk, with a piece of paper in front of them, and wrote: “That’s the legal bit done. Now on to the ceremony! #ShareTheLove DavidFurnish”.

Elton took to Twitter on December 20, 2014 to direct people to the couple’s instagram accounts, tweeting: “Join Elton John and David Furnish as we share special moments from our Wedding tomorrow #ShareTheLove”. The singer posted snaps on the photo-sharing website, including an image of a wedding invitation emblazoned with red roses which confirms the big day is December 21, 2014.

In a post next to the photograph, Elton says he and DAvid “will be posting special moments from our big day”. On December 21, 2014 he posted a photograph taken at a window showing a garden, and wrote: “Good morning! Nice day for a wedding. #ShareTheLove” The night before he posted a photograph of two pairs of shoes sitting at a fire, and wrote: “Our little ring bearers are fast asleep and their shoes are polished and ready for tomorrow’s celebration. @DavidFurnish #ShareTheLove” The couple have two sons of toddler age called Zachary and Elijah.

On December 21, 2005, they tied the knot in a civil partnership ceremony at the Windsor Guildhall. A galaxy of stars joined the celebrations, including Victoria Beckham, Helena Bonham Carter and Sir Michael Caine.

The pair first met in 1993 when a mutual friend invited British-Canadian film-maker Furnish to dinner with the rock legend. Their civil partnership service took place in the same venue where the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall got married. With David by his side, Elton has hosted star-studded bashes and raised huge sums for his Aids Foundation.

Gay marriages became possible in England and Wales for the first time in March 2014. David Cameron hailed the introduction as a “historic day” as many leapt at the chance to tie the knot. In an interview for US TV in March 2014, Elton said: “We’ll do it very quietly. But we will do it and it will be a joyous occasion and we will have our children. For this legislation to come through is joyous, and we should celebrate it. We shouldn’t just say ‘Oh, well, we have a civil partnership, we’re not going to bother to get married’. We will get married.”

And during the interview for NBC’s Today programme, Furnish said of the anticipation from their circle of friends: “The phone’s been ringing off the hook.”

But there was still time to make some precious memories for Elton, David and their two sons Zachary, three, and Elijah, 23 months, ahead of Sunday's nuptials. The adorable four-piece hit London's festive attraction Winter Wonderland with showbiz pal Elizabeth Hurley and her son Damien and David's fun side was allowed to come out to play as he indulged in some of the exciting rides.
