Tom Daley and Dustin Lance are married. According to reports in The Sun and Mirror, Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black tied the knot on Saturday. And word is the Olympic diver and Oscar winning screenwriter reportedly had a “Romeo and Juliet” moment when they did it.
There was some question about the rumored wedding because Tom recently posted a photograph on Instagram that showed him in the hospital. Apparently, all is well.
Per The Sun:
“The diving ace imitated Juliet from the Shakespeare play on the balcony of Bovey Castle as he larked about with his partner and guests before the ceremony. A few hours later, 22-year-old Tom swapped vows with American Oscar winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, known as Lance, who is 20 years his senior.
Just 50 close friends and relatives gathered at the lavish five-star golf resort in Dartmoor national park, 30 miles from Plymouth, Devon, where Tom grew up.
Lance’s family flew in from California and the couple hired out the entire 58-room hotel for the weekend where rates start at around £200 a night.”
More reporting from The Sun:
“The intimate civil partnership ceremony was held in the castle’s stunning Cathedral Room to the strains of a string quartet.It was followed by a three-course cordon-bleu meal with champagne and wine and a “massive cake” personally ordered by Tom. The guests were then set to party into the early hours in the hotel’s spacious Dartmoor Suite ballroom.”
Below are some of the first photographs, posted by the happy couple.
