Bride’s sister has wedding guests in stitches with song
2015 has seen a new craze sweep the internet – wedding speeches being delivered in song.
Ireland has of course been one of the leaders in this trend, with a good old sing song a regular feature of Irish parties.
We have already seen several best men, bridesmaids and guests surprise the happy couple with a musical tribute on their special day.
The latest offering comes from Kirsty Campbell of Co Fermanagh. She celebrated the marriage of her sister Kyra and new husband Stuart by bursting into song at the wedding reception.
The lyrics were both heart-warming and humorous as she described the love of her sister and new brother-in-law.
Kirsty set the tone for her song with the first line which had the entire marquee in stitches – but you will have to see the video to get the full comic effect.
The song continues to make the guests laugh and cry as comedy and sincerity are beautifully merged to create the special tribute.
The video was posted online and has several views and warm comments. Take a look for yourself.
