Every moment beginning from the signing of official marriage certificates, till the moment the couple said their vows, was posted via pictures on Elton’s Instagram account. Among these pictures, one beautiful picture snapped by Zachary, the couple’s eldest son, of his brother, Elijah, was promptly uploaded as well. In this particular snap, Elijah is seen hugging his father’s leg, while holding a stuffed toy, which was captioned: ‘Zachary grabs David’s iPhone and takes a photo of his brother while we exchange our vows. #ShareTheLove.’

Although the couple has been in a relationship for the last 21 years, they entered a civil partnership on December 21st, 2005, the day that the Civil Partnership Act came into force in the UK. And when same-sex marriage was legalized in the UK in March 2014, they got married on the anniversary of their civil partnership, December 21st, adding an element of poignancy to the ceremony.
