Elton John and David Furnish Get Married


Longtime partners Elton John and David Furnish have tied the knot. They got a civil partnership back in 2005, and when England changed the law in March to allow gay couples to wed, they said they would do so. "For this legislation to come through is joyous, and we should celebrate it," John told BBC News. "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 get married they did! The couple made it official at their Windsor estate in Berkshire on Sunday with a number of celebrities in attendance, including Victoria and David Beckham, Ed Sheeran, and David Walliams. Their sons, Zachary and David, were there, and yes, so too was Instagram.
