"Sir Elton John sealed his marriage to long-term partner David Furnish with a kiss today.
The couple celebrated Britain's first celebrity gay wedding in what was the star's most understated sartorial display since he stopped calling himself Reg Dwight. Sir Elton, 58, wore a morning suit and silver tie for the 20-minute ceremony while Furnish, 43, wore a similar outfit set off with a black tie. If Furnish looked unnervingly like an undertaker - and Sir Elton like the maitre d' of a rather grand hotel, albeit one with a taste for purple tinted glasses - then who is to criticise? Not only are they showbusiness royalty, but today is the first day for civil partnerships in England and as yet the rules of etiquette and dress codes have not been written down."
