Los Angeles, Feb 26 (IANS) Singers Elton John and his partner David Furnish are planning a lavish wedding here as soon as gay marriage is legalised in California.

The couple attained civil partnership in 2005 in Britain and plan to renew their vows there later this year.

"Los Angeles is like a second home to us. We have a civil partnership... and when we go back to Britain, we will definitely renew our vows under the gay marriage act, but, to do it here in Los Angeles, which is a second home to us, we'd love to do it here too! Let's renew those vows everywhere they become legal," Hollyscoop.com quoted Furnish as saying.

For the celebrity couple, it is also their way to support other gay people around the world.

"It is one of the pivotal defining issues of our time and this moment has arrived and even though we have our relationship legally recognised, people are fighting hard for this issue everyday and deservedly so. If we can give it profile and support, we'll continue to do that," he said.
