World famous British singer Sir Elton John got married to his partner David Furnish have officially got married
The Sacrifice singer married his long time partner on Sunday at their Windsor estate with a number of stars expected to attend the celebrations.
On Saturday, he used Twitter to direct people to the couple’s Instagram accounts where he said they would be sharing “special moments” from their wedding.
Elton John has posted snaps on the photo-sharing website, including an image of a wedding invitation emblazoned with red roses which confirms the wedding date is December 21.
In a post next to the photograph, Sir Elton says he and Furnish “will be posting special moments from our big day”.
On Sunday morning, he posted a photograph taken at a window showing a garden, and wrote: “Good morning! Nice day for a wedding. #ShareTheLove”
The famous couple have two sons of toddler age called Zachary and Elijah.
Gay marriages became possible in England and Wales for the first time in March. Prime Minister 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 this year, Sir 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.”
He added: “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.”
Earlier, Elizabeth Hurley tweeted that she was “v excited” as she was on her way to the wedding.
She included the hashtag “#ShareTheLove”, which Sir Elton has been using in his social media posts.
