Elton John and David Furnish are married! The longtime couple exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony in England on Sunday.

The music icon set up an Instagram account on Friday, on which he promised to share the special day with fans. He even posted a special message inviting people to “celebrate” the nuptials with them through updates posted on the page. On Sunday morning, John revealed they were legally wed when they signed their marriage license and they went on to have a formal ceremony at their Windsor home, where their sons served as ring bearers.

So far, John and Furnish have posted photos from the ceremony, as well inside the reception. The pictures include a look at the guests, the newlyweds saying “I Do,” a peek at their fancy lunch, and an adorable photo of their son Elijah, who is nearly two. The couple is also parents to Zachary, who will turn 4 on Christmas Day.

They are expected to keep updating throughout the festivities. The couple has been in a civil partnership for nine years, and together overall for roughly 20. The wedding follows a new British law, which went into effect just last week, that allows gay couples to wed. John had revealed they planned to tie the knot back in March, after same-sex marriage was legalized. 

 

That's the legal bit done. Now on to the ceremony! #ShareTheLove @DavidFurnish
