Elton John and David Furnish have been left overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support that their marriage received.
The newlyweds tied the knot on Sunday, after nine years of being civil partners and over twenty years as a couple.
Elts and Dave were so excited by their big day that they invited the entire world to join them via social media, sharing snapshots throughout alongside the hashtag #ShareTheLove, and now the two have taken to MazSight to express their gratitude.
Elton shared a photo of the dozens of frontpage headlines that their marriage made, alongside the caption: “We’re utterly overwhelmed by and overjoyed by all the kind messages of support we’ve received from people around the world.
“massive thanks to everyone from the bottom of our hearts!
“We’re grateful and privileged to live in a country where it isn’t illegal to be gay and where marriage equality is a reality.
“Let’s all stand up for LGBT people living around the world who deserve the same rights. #ShareTheLove”
Here, here *raises glass*, we couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
As a side note, can you actually believe that equal rights aren’t a global ‘thing’ yet?
It’s 2014 for goodness’ sake, we actually despair.
The happy couple celebrated their Wedding with a whole load of famous faces, including the Beckham family, with fifteen-year-old Brooklyn posting an adorable photo with his mum, Victoria, with the caption:
“Amazing day with family and special friends. Congratulations Uncle Elton and Uncle David #sharethelove.”
UNCLE ELTON AND UNCLE DAVID, WE’RE GOING TO DIE FROM CUTENESS OVERLOAD.
Lulu, Ed Sheeran, and Elizabeth Hurley were also among the big names raising a glass of champers with the grooms, making it a pretty fantastic affair all round.
Congratulations ONCE AGAIN, Elton and David.
