10. Elton John & David Furnish
In December of 2014, Elton John made mainstream headlines after the pop star tied the knot with his longtime partner, David Furnish. They invited the world to celebrate their special day on December 21st – via Instagram, of course.
The couple had been together since 1993, with John proposing to Furnish in 2005. On December 21, 2005, they entered into a civil partnership, and they chose that same date as their wedding day nine years later.
The couple are parents to two children, born in 2010 and 2013 respectively from the same surrogate mother. Furnish is a well known Canadian film maker, and was named by GQ as one of Britain’s best dressed men.
