The Marriage of Elton John and David Furnish

elton10elton1The sun attempts to pierce through the clouds on the morning of the couples wedding. On Instagram Elton wrote –  “Good morning! Nice day for a wedding. #ShareTheLove” and below the second photo, from the night before he wrote – “Our little ring bearers are fast asleep, and their shoes are polished and ready for tomorrow’s celebration.”

Well, we were wondering when Sir Elton John aka the Rocket Man was going to get hitched to his long-time partner David Furnish. Finally it’s happened!

The ceremony takes place!

The couple have been together for many years now, and although taking part in a civil ceremony 9 years ago, it seems only right that Elton and David should marry officially. With gay marriage finally passing into law earlier this year.

We’re over the moon that Elton decided to capture, at great length, the days festivities on Instagram. It was a truly sweet and wonderful ceremony, and we at Think Shaadi wish Elton and David all the happiness in the world! Xx
