Elton's castle wedding
13:30 07 November 2005
Sir Elton John and long-time partner David Furnish have reportedly booked a swanky castle for their Christmas nuptials.
The pair are said to have hired Windsor's MacDonald Castle Hotel for mid-December - the same time as a new law allowing homosexuals to legally marry comes into effect.
A source is quoted in Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "They have organised a lavish meal to the finest detail."
Last week, the flamboyant star told journalists at a fundraiser for his AIDS Foundation he was planning to be one of the first couples to wed under the new laws.
He is quoted on the website Gay.com as saying: "It's going to be on the 21st of December. That's all I know at the moment."
Last year, the singer revealed he had already picked his wedding guests.
The pop superstar, who has been romancing Canadian film producer Furnish for 11 years, said: "I think I would like Lulu as my maid of honour and Victoria Beckham as my best man!"
