Huge congratulations are in order for designer Tom Ford and his partner of 27 years, Richard Buckley.

Vogue reports that the dapper duo secretly tied the knot, surprising the fashion world with his discreet announcement at the Regent Street Apple store opening in London last night.

"I lost so many friends in college--I would say more than half of my closest friends. Richard, my partner of 27 years, had also gone through something also quite tough in his life. We are now married, which is nice," he said simply.

"I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great; we were married in the States."

The stylish pair, who have a young son together named Alexander John Buckley Ford, first met at a fashion show in the ‘80s when Ford was bursting on to the scene and Buckley was the editor-in-chief of Vogue Hommes International.

"I went to a fashion show and this silver-haired guy was staring at me with these piercing water-blue eyes," Ford told WWD in a past interview. "It scared me because I absolutely saw and knew my entire future."

Oh, how sweet it is!

Wishing these two lovebirds a lifetime of happiness together.
