Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish have formally converted their civil partnership to a marriage – with the musician documenting the day on Instagram.
The pair tied the knot in a ceremony at their Windsor estate on Sunday (December 21), exactly nine years after they entered a civil partnership in 2005.
The couple’s sons Zachary, who was born in 2010, and Elijah, born last year attended the ceremony. David and Victoria Beckham, musician Ed Sheeran and actor David Walliams were also among the guests.
John and Furnish met in 1993. Both have been active in a number of charities, with John focusing on efforts to combat the spread of HIV and AIDS. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1998 in recognition of his charitable works.
