David Furnish (born 25 October, 1962) is a Canadian filmmaker who is the civil partner of British entertainer Sir Elton John. Furnish is a former advertising executive who is now a film director and producer most famous for his documentary Elton John: Tantrums & Tiaras.
A mutual friend of Furnish and Elton John left a message for Furnish inviting him to a dinner party at Elton John's house on October 30, 1993. Initially fearing that the dinner would be unpleasant, or that John would be boring, he instead found John to be interesting and engaging. Both were attracted to each other; John asked for his phone number and the two had a private dinner the following night.
Furnish resigned from his position in 1994 after finding it increasingly difficult to balance the position's demands with the demands of his new life with John.
With a keen interest in film, Furnish enrolled in courses at the British Film Institute. He is currently co-chief of Rocket Pictures along with John.
Furnish currently serves on the board of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, attending fundraisers and other events in support of that cause.
Elton John proposed to David Furnish in May 2005 at a dinner party with friends and family at their home in Old Windsor. John and Furnish entered into a civil partnership on December 21, 2005, the first day that civil partnerships could be performed in England, in the town of Old Windsor.
