Olympian diver Tom Daley and film director Dustin Lance Black has tied the knot!
The couple said their vows in a private ceremony with 120 of their closest friends and family, and shared the event with the public via their Instagrams. The wedding took place on Saturday (6th May).
Daley dropped a photo of their wedding yesterday (8th May), with the accompanying caption, “On 6th May 2017, I married the love of my life, @dlanceblack ❤️ We shared the day with 120 of our closest friends and family, from Texarkana to Plymouth! Thank you to everyone who made this weekend the most special weekend of our lives!”
Hours later, he shared a photo of the couple with their backs against the camera, decorated with fireworks in the background.
His beau, Black, also shared 2 wedding photos with fans. The first one was a full shot of the couple, while the 2nd one – a close up shot – was accompanied by a very touching message. “6th of May 2017. When all my hopes and dreams of ‘Maybe one day…’ came true. Thanks to all of our family and friends for helping create the best day of our lives,” wrote Black.
Fellow diver Brooke Graddon, who was at the wedding, said that it was full of “love and happiness”. She was also extremely happy for Daley, exclaiming, “He’s been through so many hard times in his life it’s so nice that he’s had his happy ending.”
Graddon also described the wedding as brilliant and “fun”. She continued, “It’s so nice seeing him happy. He said he didn’t start sorting out his wedding until January/February time, things like he just said he was going to make his own cake. Obviously, the location was incredible but everything else was really relaxed, it was just so normal.”
Daley first announced that he was bisexual in 2013 via a YouTube video and made public his relationship with Black. However, he revealed that he was actually gay in mid-2014. The pair got engaged in October 2015.
