According to reports, the 22-year-old Olympian re-enacted the balcony scene from Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo And Juliet’, calling out “Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?”.

The couple’s nuptials come just days after Tom shared a snap with fans on Instagram showing him lying in a hospital bed.

Although he didn’t elaborate on his health, he assured fans he was alright, commenting: “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Back on the board soon.”

Tom and Dustin (known as Lance) first got together in 2013, with the diver coming out publicly in a YouTube video in the months that followed.

In the clip he told fans that his “whole world changed” when he fell in love with a man.

Earlier this year the couple insisted they were “stronger than ever” after intimate pictures and an explicit Snapchat video emerged of Tom stripping off for a British fan.

Addressing the leak, Tom revealed he was “on a break” from his future husband at the time and that he was aware of what happened.

Lance has also spoke out, explaining that honesty is the secret to their relationship.
