When Elton John and David Furnish revealed they’d be sharing intimate moments from their wedding on Instagram, we waited patiently to see the most important element—the cake, of course!
“I love the look on Zachary’s face as he eyes the cake!” Furnish — who married John on Sunday — said of their 3-year-old son in a photo of the family during the cake cutting ceremony. The couple are also parents to Elijah, 1.
The gorgeous white wedding cake was decorated with red rose petals and topped with the grooms’ initials.
The spread for the lunch — which was attended by stars like Ed Sheeran, Hugh Grant and model Lara Stone and had a red and white color scheme featuring giant bouquets of red roses—included wild mushroom soup with truffle cream, beef short rib and caramelized onion pie, roasted potatoes, and parsnips in horseradish butter.
“The tables look stunning! We had red roses at our Civil Partnership 9 years ago and they brought us so much luck,” John captioned a photo of the room.
And to top it all off, warm chocolate pudding and vanilla ice cream were served in addition to the cake.
