Everyone’s favourite musician, Elton John married his long-time partner David Furnish yesterday in a glamorous and super-Christmassy ceremony which was also – of course – filled with tons of famous celebs.
Instagram and Twitter were awash with photos of the famous grooms and their guests enjoying the day with the very appropriate hashtag #ShareTheLove.
The couple, who were already in a civil partnership, became a legally married couple as they wed at their Windsor estate in Berkshire. The British law changed in March of this year, finally allowing same sex couples to marry. Elton and David tied the knot exactly nine years to the day that they entered their civil partnership. How romantic!
The famous couple’s two sons, Zachary and Elijah were dressed up smart providing all the cuteness you could hope for! Sir Elton set up an Instagram account specifically to #ShareTheLove of their big day and posted snaps throughout the wedding to let his loyal fans share the amazing day with them.
Also providing us with some insights into the big day were the celebrity guests, including Lara Stone and David Walliams, Lulu and Elizabeth Hurley.
The Beckhams were also in attendance, with Elton’s Godson Brooklyn posting an adorable snap of him and his mother with the caption; ‘Amazing day with family and special friends. Congratulations Uncle Elton and Uncle David #sharethelove.’
The event sees (probably) the final celebrity wedding of 2014 which was a year of seriously amazing ceremonies. From Poppy Delevingne’s two glam bashes to Amal Clooney’s four-day extravaganza and Kim Kardashian’s Italian do, we have been treated to wedded royalty throughout the year, and David and Elton certainly topped it all off in style!
Elton posted a snap of some of the cards sent by friends and family, including one from Adele.
