The whole family joined in as Leanne posted: “My family doing a wee step about at our wedding – mum, aunties, sister, brother, brother in law, godson, cousins included ✨ We even taught my husband a step and didn’t he do well #irishfamily #craic #irishdancers #algarvewedding”

The party got started with a bang as various friends and family of the happy couple took it it turns to take centre stage on the dancefloor and show off their moves.

Even the groom took his moment in the limelight, despite not being an experienced dancer like many of his guests.

Everyone was welcome to join in and some of the younger members of the family showed that the future of Irish dancing is in good hands.

The video was posted online and the happy couple have received plenty of praise and compliments from their loved ones.

Congratulations to Leanne and John.

Of course Irish dance performances at wedding parties are not a new thing, but there is no doubt that this Co Down couple put on a great show and the video is likely to attract a lot of attention online.

Take a look for yourself.
