Elton John had been very quiet about their wedding, but he did say earlier this year that he and his partner would be getting married.
Over fifty of the couples friends and family attended the ceremony, including celebrities like David Beckham and Victoria Beckham.
Elton John posted many cards and well-wishes from family and friends following their wedding on his Instagram page. The post included a handwritten note from singer Adele, as we previously reported.
Adele was unable to make the wedding, but hoped the couple had a wonderful day and apologized that her family could not make the ceremony. The note was signed by her, her boyfriend Simon and the couple’s son Angelo.
In the late 1960s, Elton John was engaged to be married to his first lover, secretary Linda Woodrow, who is mentioned in the song Someone Saved My Life Tonight.
He married German recording engineer Renate Blauel on February 14, 1984, in Darling Point, Sydney, with speculation that the marriage was a cover for his homosexuality.
He then came out as bisexual in a 1976 interview, but after his divorce from Renate Blauel in 1988, he told the magazine that he was comfortable being gay.
In 1993, Elton John stared dating David Furnish, a former advertising executive and now filmmaker originally from Toronto, Canada.
On 21 December 2005 (the day that the Civil Partnership Act came into force), they were amongst the first couples in the UK to form a civil partnership, which was held at the Windsor Guildhall. After gay marriage became legal in England in March 2014, they got on their ninth anniversary of their civil partnership.
They have two sons. Their oldest, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish John, was born to a surrogate mother on December 25, 2010 in California. Their second son, Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish John, was born to the couple by the same surrogate mother on January 11, 2013.
Here’s wishing the newly wed couple all the happiness.
