The new trailer for Rocketman, the biopic on Elton John’s life, has just been released and it really does look glorious. When watching the two-and-a-half minute teaser, we are all reminded of the legendary singer’s extraordinary and vibrant life.
But there is one moment in the trailer, appearing for precisely 0.87 seconds, that gave us a glimpse into a moment that I had completely forgotten ever happened.
… That time Elton John married a woman in Sydney nearly 35 years ago.
You can watch the trailer of Rocketman below. Post continues after clip.
On Valentine's Day 1984, the iconic musician married German sound engineer Renate Blauel in Sydney's famous suburb of Darling Point at St Mark's church.
Photos from the special occasion are aplenty, showcasing Elton John's purple bow-tie and matching boater with his white suit jacket completing his colourful attire.
His bride Renate Blauel wore a flower crown with her traditional dress that had puffy sleeves to beat all puffy sleeves.
