Elton John and David Furnish officially married in a private ceremony on Sunday in front of a star-studded congregation.

John posted lots of Instagram pics to share moments of the special day with the hashtag "share the love."

He started out with this photo of the "legal bit."

On Dec. 10, Parliament made it legal to convert civil partnerships into marriages in the U.K., and John, 67, and Furnish, 52, decided to take advantage of the change in legislation. They were one of the first couples to enter into a civil partnership in 2005 at the Windsor Guildhall.

Mister and Mister. #ShareTheLove

Now, after being together for over 20 years, they were able to exchange their vows in front of a registrar and their family and friends to become husbands.

The red roses on the table matched their invitation, and John says the flowers have brought the couple “so much luck” as they also had them when they entered into a civil partnership.

I love the look on Zachary's face as he eyes the cake! #ShareTheLove

NEWS: Who Else Got Married This Weekend?

The couple began their relationship in 1993, and in 2010, John recalled Parade magazine how the two met.

"I went back to my house in Windsor for a while. I wanted meet new people so I rang up a friend in London and said, 'Could you please rattle some new people together for dinner here Saturday?'" John said. "[David] was very well dressed, very shy. The next night we had dinner. After it, we consummated our relationship. We fell in love very quickly."

The "Rocketman" singer and Furnish have two sons, Zachary, 3, and Elijah, 1, who were also suited up for the wedding.
