Sir Elton John has officially married his long-time partner, David Furnish.

The two entered into a civil ceremony together when they were first legalised in the United Kingdom in 2004, but following the introduction of equal marriage earlier this year, they're now officially a married couple.

Elton and David invited fans to #ShareTheLove with them on Saturday, with an Instagram post that revealed they'd be sharing snaps from throughout their ceremony the next day.

A global icon's wedding photos on our timeline certainly makes a welcome change from the heavily-filtered selfless and photos of salads our friends usually post, at least.

On Sunday, Elton uploaded a picture of them signing their marriage certificate, officially making them a married couple.

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

They said now that the "legal bit" was done, they could move on to the wedding ceremony, which sounds as though it will be a typically lavish.

It's been reported that among the 50 rumoured guests are some of Elton's A-list friends, such as David and Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Hurley and Sharon Osbourne, while his two sons, Zachary and Elijah, will act as ring-bearers.

The couple announced their wedding plans back in April, with David saying at the time: "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."
