Sometime this spring Elton John will walk down the aisle to tie the knot with his longtime partner David Furnish.

The two have been together since 1993 and entered into a civil partnership in 2005. As of March 29th, same sex marriage will be legal in the United Kingdom (U.K.).

Elton, once known for his over-the-top flamboyance has stated that the wedding won't be a big occasion, rather it will be private.

"In my lifetime, I never thought I'd be able to have a civil partnership and also be able to marry my partner," he continued. "You bet I'm going to take advantage of the laws that so many people have fought to change over the years. I'm thrilled."  Elton and Furnish have two sons, Zachary and Elijah.
