Sir Elton John and David Furnish have married.
The showbiz couple tied the knot on Sunday, formally converting their civil partnership, and shared the moment on Elton’s Instagram account.
“That’s the legal bit done. Now on to the ceremony! #ShareTheLove @DavidFurnish (sic),” Elton captioned the shot of the beaming pair.
The couple celebrated with a star-studded ceremony at their Windsor estate in Berkshire later, a spokesman said. Superstar singer Elton and David first started dating in 1993 and were among the first couples in the UK to form a civil partnership in December 2005.

At the time the Rocket Man hitmaker spoke of his pride at the law change. “Having our civil partnership was an incredible breakthrough for people that have campaigned for a long time – through the 60s and the 50s in England when it was so hard to be gay and hard to be open about it. And it was a criminal act.
“So 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,” he stated.
They are the proud parents of two sons; Zachary, three, and Elijah, 11 months. Both boys were born by the same surrogate mother.
