It was long time coming! Elton John and his longtime partner David Furnish tied the knot in a ceremony at his Windsor home in England last Sunday.

The legendary singer in March had revealed that he was planning to marry Furnish after England legalised same-sex marriage. the couple underwent a civil partnership in 2005.

"We'll do it very quietly. But we will do it and it will be a joyous occasion and we will have our children," John told Today show's Matt Lauer in March.

John had no plans to go in for a "quiet" wedding as he created an Instagram account on Dec 19 just to invite his fans to his big day. After sending out a virtual invitation, the Brit then began posting pictures leading up to the ceremony.

"That's the legal bit done. Now onto the ceremony! #ShareTheLove @DavidFurnish," he captioned a photo signing his marriage license.

John also posted pics throughout the ceremony, including them exchanging their vows. The singer's next posts though conveyed his happiness of his country taking a liberal stand on gay marriage.

"I'm very proud of Britain and the laws that we've seen come into existence since we've been together," he continued. "Having our civil partnership was an incredible breakthrough for people that have campaigned for a long time through the '60s and the '50s in England when it was so hard to be gay and hard to be open about it. And it was a criminal act. So for this legislation to come through is joyous, and we should celebrate it. We shouldn't just say, 'Oh, well we have a civil partnership. We're not going to bother to get married.' We will get married."
