12 Celebrities Who Performed At Weddings

Whether the below artists performed at their fellow celebs’ weddings (and many have, including John Legend at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s nuptials; Ellie Goulding at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding) or fans’ ceremonies (hi, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift), one thing’s for sure: They are all about upping the romance factor, especially with their own to-die-for tunes.

If anything can add just a little more sparkle to already the most important day of couple’s lives, it’s either celebs flat-out surprising the couple in general, let alone with their swoon-worthy songs, or just making the night even better with some romantic tunes.

Check out the 12 celebs below who performed at weddings, from Rihanna to Dan + Shay to Sam Smith to Justin Timberlake to John Mayer — and many more.
