Sir Elton John Weds David Furnish

Elton 2Sir Elton John has married his longtime partner David Furnish. The couple upgraded their civil union to a marriage on their ninth anniversary.

The couple entered into a civil union nine years ago, but on Sunday they took advantage of the new laws in the United Kingdom that allow people to transfer their unions to being a marriage.

Sir Elton announced the ceremony by opening an Instagram account. An image of red roses announced the couples intentions and later photos were posted of the celebrations.

John and Furnish undertook the official ceremony at a Registry Office before throwing a party at their Windsor estate.

At the party guests dined on wild mushroom soup, beef and onion pie and warm chocolate pudding with vanilla ice cream.

Elton John began dating Furnish, a former advertising executive, in 1993. They were one of the first couples in Britain to obtain a civil union. The couple have two sons born to a surrogate mother.
