Sir Elton John - Elton John And David Furnish Planning Los Angeles Wedding24 February 2013
Sir Elton John and his partner DAVID FURNISHare planning to stage a lavish wedding in Los Angeles as soon as gay marriage is legalised in California.
The couple entered into a civil partnership in 2005 in the U.K., where they hope to legally renew their vows later this year (13), but the new fathers' goal is to celebrate the much-anticipated lifting of a ban outlawing same sex marriage in California by staging a big party.
Furnish tells Hollyscoop.com, "Los Angeles is like a second home to us. We have a civil partnership... and when we go back to Britain, we will definitely renew our vows under the gay marriage act, but, to do it here in Los Angeles, which is a second home to us, we’d love to do it here too! Let’s renew those vows everywhere they become legal!
"It is one of the pivotal defining issues of our time and this moment has arrived and even though we have our relationship legally recognised, people are fighting hard for this issue everyday and deservedly so. If we can give it profile and support, we’ll continue to do that."
But first, the couple will have another big party to throw - the Rocket Man hitmaker will stage his annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party in Hollywood on Sunday (24Feb13).
