Elton John to Wed Longtime Partner David Furnish
The singer and Furnish are set to marry, PEOPLE confirms
Will the holiday season bring wedding bells for Elton John?
The singer will officially tie the knot with longtime partner David Furnish, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.
In 2005, the pair – who are parents to sons Zachary and Elijah – entered a civil partnership. The ceremony, which took place in Windsor, England, was followed by a $2 million reception attended by stars including Donatella Versace, Ringo Starr and Victoria Beckham.
“We don’t feel the need to take an extra step legally,” Furnish said at the time. “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.”
