  • Tom Daley and his partner Dustin Lance Black have tied the knot.

    Tom took to Instagram to confirm the happy news, sharing a picture of himself and his new husband walking down the aisle together and writing: ‘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’

    A source previously said to the BBC that Olympic diver Tom, 22, married screenwriter Dustin, 42, in a romantic ceremony at Bovey Castle Hotel, a luxury hotel on Dartmoor National Park in Devon, 30 miles from his home city of Plymouth.

    Tom’s #NoRomeo reference appears to be a nod to another insider, who had told The Sun that Tom was seen reciting lines from Shakespearean classic Romeo & Juliet on one of the balconies at the grand location before the pair exchanged their vows (a performance which was followed by a three-course cordon-bleu meal with champagne, wine and cake, and dancing in the ballroom).

    However, the guest who spoke to the BBC said that rumours of Tom’s cries of ‘Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?’ had been untrue.

    ‘I’m not sure which wedding they were at, but it wasn’t the one I attended,’ they said.

    Tom first revealed that he had a ‘boyfriend’ in a YouTube video addressing his sexuality in 2013, explaining to viewers: ‘Come spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone and they make me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feels great and, well, that someone is a guy.’

    Tom and Dustin got engaged in 2015

    In 2015, Tom and Dustin announced their engagement with a formal notification in the Births, Marriages and Deaths section of newspaper The Times, which read: ‘The engagement is announced between Tom, son of Robert and Debra Daley of Plymouth, and Lance, son of Jeff Bisch of Philadelphia and Anne Bisch of Lake Providence.’

    Tom’s mother Debbie revealed to The Telegraph at the time: ‘It’s wonderful news, we are extremely happy for them. I’ll be looking at dresses and hats.

    ‘There is an age gap, 20 years, but then again age is but a number. I am not sad because in losing Tom I am gaining another, so it makes everything all good.’
