The ceremony was momentarily paused as the maid of honour led the guests in song before the happy couple could exchange vows.

It was already a heart-warming moment, but then the bride’s father took over the lead vocals, much to the surprise and delight of his daughter.

It was clearly kept a secret that Lisa’s dad would sing during the ceremony, as the shock and delight on her face showed.
