Sir Elton John and David Furnish get officially married!

22 Dec

On Sunday morning Sir Elton John and David Furnish tied the knot in a romantic ceremony, exactly nine years after they entered into a civil partnership.

The couple posted pictures to their Instagram pages throughout the ceremony alongside the hashtag #sharethelove.

The grooms were dressed in matching dark suits as were their sons, their sons Zachary, three and Elijah, 23 months, red rose boutonnieres and red and blue striped ties, and Elton wore a pair of sunglasses.

Guests included David and Victoria Beckham, David Walliams and his wife Lara Stone, Liz Hurley, Gary Barlow, Kate Bush, Hugh Grant, comic Jimmy Carr, singer Lulu, Burberry boss Christopher Bailey and Ed Sheeran.

The venue was decorated with giant bouquets of red roses, the same style of flower which decorated the reception at their 2005 civil ceremony. On the menu was a starter of wild mushroom soup with truffle cream, beef short rib and caramalised onion pie with roast potatoes and parsnips in horseradish butter, finished off with a desert of warm chocolate pudding and vanilla ice cream.

The couple have been together for 21 years, after meeting at a dinner party in 1993. They entered a civil partnership on December 21, 2005 and picked the date to officially get wed on their ninth anniversary. Same sex marriages became legal in England in March.
