Elton John and his longtime partner David Furnish will legally tie the knot in May 2014, according to a report.

While celebrating John's 67th birthday at Fizz Las Vegas on March 28, Furnish, 51, reportedly told the Las Vegas Review-Journal of he and John's plans to marry, which would include their two kids, Elijah and Zachary, as well as a few friends in the ceremony.

"We don't feel the need to take an extra step legally. But since we're committed for life, we feel it's really important to take that step, and take advantage of that amazing change in legislation. We all live by example," Furnish said.

Same-sex marriage was recently legalized in England, making it possible for couples such as John and Furnish to legally marry. The two have been in a civil partnership for eight years.

Despite being known for throwing lavish events, such as their 2005 civil ceremony, Furnish says that the two's wedding ceremony will be relatively low key.

"We do like big parties," Furnish said. "But with the kids, everything is different. I think what we'll do is go to a registry office in England in May, and take the boys with us, and a couple of witnesses."
