Nine years after they entered a civil partnership, Elton John and David Furnish married in an intimate ceremony on Sunday.
On Saturday, the couple had invited the world to join in on their special day by posting invites on their Instagram accounts.
“Sir Elton John and David Furnish request the pleasure of your company to celebrate their wedding on Sunday the 21st of December,” read the invite.And they made good on that invitation, sharing moments throughout their wedding weekend with the hashtag #ShareTheLove.
“Our little ring bearers are fast asleep, and their shoes are polished and ready for tomorrow’s celebration,” John captioned a photo of the wedding shoes their sons – Zachary and Elijah who served as ring-bearers – wore.
During the ceremony, Zachary grabbed Furnish’s phone to take a photo of Elijah holding on to their parents as they exchanged vows.
“We don’t feel the need to take an extra step legally,” Furnish told The Las Vegas Review Journal. “But since we’re committed for life, we feel it’s really important to take that step, and take advantage of that amazing change in legislation. We all live by example.”
