D Dipasupil/FilmMagicAre Elton John and his partner David Furnish planning a Christmas wedding? According to the British paper The Mirror, they plan to tie the knot on December 21.

The British tabloid claims that the couple, who cemented their relationship nine years ago in a civil partnership, will have a “small and intimate” ceremony, with about 50 friends and family members, at their home in Windsor, England. Among the guests expected: David and Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Hurley and The Osbournes.

It’s now legal in the U.K. to convert civil partnerships into marriages, and a “friend” tells the paper, “Elton and David have been planning this for months. Elton is flamboyant but, for once, this will be a decidedly low-key affair.”

The couple, who’ve been together for 20 years, have two sons: three-year-old Zachary and one-year-old Elijah. They’re expected to “play a special part” in the ceremony,” according to the pal, serving as ring bearers for their dads.
