Can you feel the love tonight — Or, the morning after? Elton John and new husband David Furnish sure can. John and Furnish got married on Sunday on the ninth anniversary of the day they began their civil partnership. The partners of 21 years announced their engagement in March 2014 after same-sex marriage became legal in England. Weirdly, it seems like my invitation got lost in the mail. Thank god for social media, though. There are plenty of photos documenting the extravagant wedding. Flipping through the images will make you feel like you were a part of it all. Well, almost.
The couple got married at their lavish estate west of London and there was an A-list crowd full of celebrities, and the couple's sons, Zachary, 4, and Elijah, 1, were both a part of the wedding. Guests included David Beckham, Victoria Beckham, Ed Sheeran, Hugh Grant, Elizabeth Hurley, Ozzy Osbourne, and Sharon Osbourne. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall at this wedding.
John previously told Matt Lauer, "We'll do it very quietly. But we will do it and it will be a joyous occasion and we will have our children." I guess the couple abandoned that idea because John just joined Instagram seemingly for the purpose of sharing the wedding with his fans. He posted a photo of the twosome signing marriage documents with the caption "That's the legal bit done. Now on to the ceremony!"

Elton John's inaugural Instagram post set the tone for his publicly shared wedding. It's very sweet that he wants to share such personal moments with his fans.
Ringbearers Getting Ready
The couple's son Zachary is adorable, getting mentally ready for the ceremony. Aaaaawwww.
It's official! They are now mister and mister.
I cannot be the only one who screenshot this Instagram so I could zoom in and try and spot the famous guests.... Right?
Elijah clinging to his parents during the ceremony. How sweet!
The pivotal moment caught on camera. It's too perfect.
Closing of the Ceremony
It's a done deal. They are officially married and ready for the reception!
David Furnish had a pretty clever caption for this photo that was a play on words inspired by Hugh Grant's classic movie Four Weddings and a Funeral.
I find it weird that Ed Sheeran is in this social circle, yet I gladly accept it.
David Beckham's presence is not at all surprising, but it is very much appreciated. It's always great to see that face. If only someone posted a full body shot.
Victoria & Brooklyn Beckham
Brooklyn Beckham posted this shot with his mother Victoria Beckham. What a good looking family.
Elizabeth Hurley looked stunning at the wedding. I was really hoping that she would post a selfie with her ex Hugh Grant as some sort of throwback. #SoLongAgoSunday — Could that be a thing?
The family looked ecstatic to cut that wedding cake. I'm jealous because it looks delicious.
Kind Words from Guests
I would love to read these notes. This has to be a pretty legitimate autograph collection.
I wish I was in this circle of friends. It seems like it was a beautiful day to be a part of. Congratulations, Elton and David!
