For many people, their wedding day is the most precious day of their lives. A moment where two families can come together as one and join in celebrating the matrimony of two loving souls. It’s a happy time, with the potential to create memories that last a lifetime. For one couple in Ireland, that and so much more happened on their special day.
The video below is a compilation of clips from the couple’s wedding day. It begins with the groom, shaking with nerves, making a speech dedicated to his wife who organized what she thinks is the whole wedding. He also thanked the resident staff of the function for all the work they did in putting the day together. Little did the bride know that the biggest surprise was to come when Ronan Keating made an appearance just before the couple’s first dance.
This was, quite understandably, a huge shock for the bride and for the audience, who seemed to have no idea that the Irish pop legend would appear on this special day. Not only did he make his presence known, but shortly after singing to the couple during their first dance, he took to the stage and performed “Life Is A Rollercoaster” for the entire wedding party. That’s something very few people can boast about in their lives!
In the video, you can see that the newlywed wife is in complete shock at the sight of Keating, and despite being on stage with him during his performance, the couple struggles to sing along out of sheer hysterics and joy. The crowd provides plenty of energy to make up for it, and Keating matches them with enough enthusiasm to take the party to a whole new level.
In between the clips of Ronan Keating performing at the wedding party, there are loving clips of the bride and groom’s wedding parties laughing and dancing together, along with the occasional pop of a champagne bottle. It’s quite clear that everybody will remember this evening for the rest of their lives. Overall, this kind of wedding is the envy of many, even without a legendary Irish singer appearing out of thin air!
This isn’t the only time that a celebrity has successfully crashed a wedding. Sam Smith, the world-renowned pop star, surprised two brides in 2018 by crashing their wedding with a performance of “Latch”. The knowledge of marrying your best friend is already enough of a gift on your special day, but a celebrity surprising everybody and performing especially for you is a whole other level of wonder that many will never experience.
While it may not be as spectacularly surprising, celebrities tend to crash their fellow friends’ weddings and perform at them. During the wedding of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, the glamorous dream-pop artist Lana Del Rey surprised the couple with several songs from her catalog without charging a dime. Amongst her performance, John Legend also took to the stage to celebrate the couple’s marriage which was finalised in divorce in 2022.
