Tom Daley + Dustin Lance Black Got Married on ‘Downton Abbey’-Worthy Grounds
Hollywood’s newest fairytale centers on an Olympic diver, an Oscar-winning screenwriter and an English countryside that rivals the grounds on Downton Abbey: Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black are officially married.
The couple, who got engaged in 2015, confirmed in a pair of Instagram photos that they indeed, tied the knot on May 6 at Bovey Castle in Devon, England. A crowd of 120 watched the couple walk down the aisle in a pair of tailored suits, and looked very eager to cheer on their love.
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! • • • @burberry ♂️London Gay Men's Chorus @andymacphotofilm • • • #NoRomeo
“Thank you to everyone who made this weekend the most special weekend of our lives!” Daley wrote with his image, while Black captioned his shot: “So… what did you do this weekend?”
A rumor manifested after the ceremony that Black and Daley recreated a scene from Romeo & Juliet as part of the nuptials, but a source insisted to The BBC that nothing of the sort happened.
Daley first vaguely announced in a 2013 YouTube video that he was dating Black — the clip also served as his official coming out.
