All the best to the newlyweds
Tom Daley has been a married man for a little while now, but he’s now letting the rest of us in on his beautiful wedding ceremony to Dustin Lance Black. In a video posted yesterday on his YouTube channel, he released his official wedding video and we’re seeing heart eyes everywhere.
While Tom and Lance are currently off canoodling on their honeymoon, they dropped the footage yesterday morning and it’s serving up English country glamour realness. They were married in a breathtaking home with sprawling grounds and we bet Mr. Darcy would probably want to put an offer down on it.
The decor was dominated by a contrasting colour scheme, with Tom dressed in burgundy and Lance in navy. While Tom has already done an entire series on his wedding cake over on YouTube, there was also a little glimpse of their red, white and blue cake – topped off with an British flag-printed T and an American L.
There’s no denying the incredible love between the two as they both said their vows with watery eyes and candidly cuddled up at the reception. We wish them every happiness in this next big chapter in their lives.
However, it’s hard to believe that just a few years ago we would never have been able to witness something like this. It’s a huge marker of just how far the LGBT community has come, overcoming obstacle after obstacle to prove that love is the only thing that matters.
The magnitude of that wasn’t lost on Tom, who wrote in the video description, ‘We know our wedding was only possible thanks to the brave work of countless people for generations before us’.
They have also announced that the proceeds of the video will go entirely to two LGBT+ charities, LGBT+ Switchboard and It Gets Better, ‘in hopes of making things even better for future generations’.
Now that’s a message we can get behind.
