Tom Daley ties the knot

British Olympic diver Tom Daley has married the ‘love of his life’ in US film director Dustin Lance Black.

The celebrity couple tied the knot at the Bovey Castle Hotel on Dartmoor National Park in Devon on 6 May.

The private ceremony, 30 miles from Daley’s home city of Plymouth, was attended by 120 close friends and family members.

Daley, 22, posted a picture of the pair walking back down the aisle as they were showered in confetti.

Along with the image on Instagram, the diver wrote: “On 6th May 2017, I married the love of my life, Dustin Lance Black.

“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!”

Fans of the athlete had feared for his wellbeing days before the wedding after he was admitted to hospital.

Black, who is 20 years older than Daley, also shared a picture of the pair holding hands on a bridge.

He captioned the sweet image: “So… what did you do this weekend?”

The 42-year-old won the best original screenplay Oscar for the 2008 film Milk.

The film was based on the life of gay rights activist and politician Harvey Milk.

The couple had reportedly been dating since 2013 and announced their engagement in October 2015.

Daley, who won bronze medals at the London and Rio de Janeiro Olympics, said his “whole world changed” after falling in love.

Despite the age difference, Daley said he had found the perfect partner in Black.

He told the media: “We just complement each other, and I think we really understand each other.

“He’s very good at what he does—and he understands the hard work I have to put into what I do—so it works”.

The London Gay Men’s Chorus, Europe’s largest gay choir, also reportedly performed at the ceremony.
