Elton John & David Furnish To Marry In May

​Look for Elton John and David Furnish to legally tie the knot in England in May!

The couple entered a civil partnership in the UK eight years ago, but with couples now legally able to wed in the UK, they'll be taking that next step.

Furnish tells Las Vegas Review-Journal:

“We don’t feel the need to take an extra step legally. But since we’re committed for life, we feel it’s really important to take that step, and take advantage of that amazing change in legislation. We all live by example,” Furnish said.

I told him I was surprised he and Elton don’t want to throw another big wedding party.

“We do like big parties,” Furnish said. “Over eight years ago, we had 650 people on the 21st of December at our house in Windsor.

“But with the kids, everything is different. I think what we’ll do is go to a registry office in England in May, and take the boys with us, and a couple of witnesses.”

Reflecting on how much has changed through the years, Furnish, who shares two children with John, says:

“We’re living in extraordinary times. My god, 20 years ago, when I started seeing Elton, if you asked me if I’d be able to get married, if I’d be able to have children, it was unthinkable, literally unimaginable.”

Can we volunteer to be your witnesses?!



Don't think the law will allow that yet! The UK government didn't think that one through and transferring a civil partnership to a marriage will not be possible until the end of the year. I'm told I could always divorce and then remarry - tempting after 23 years together but I think we will wait.
