Ed pops to Spiddal for his cousin's wedding

Galway native Laura Sheeran married Bell X1 keyboardist Marc Aubele in the village of Cnoc Suain near Connemara over the weekend - and of course her cousin Ed Sheeran was in attendance.

The outdoor, two-day festival-themed ceremony cleverly known as "#wedstock" was held by a 3,000-year-old standing stone in the Connemara Gaeltacht village, Spiddal.

The lucky guests were treated to a range of live music performances from members of Bell X1, The Stunning and of course Ed performed one or two songs.

In a recent interview with the HELLO!, Ed denied rumours that he would be moving to America permanently

"No, I'm a British boy and I'm really a fish out of water in America," he said.

"I spend a lot of time there and it is a great experience for a 23-year-old lad to have, to see all that and experience all that, but all my friends and family live here.

"In America, it's hotel rooms and friend's spare rooms and I'd rather be based in England and take frequent trips to America than move there permanently."

It's great to see that Ed remains grounded and loyal to family and friends despite his huge success - we just wonder whether he threw a few shapes on the dance floor to the obligatory Irish wedding Riverdance set.

Looks like everyone had a great day!

Congratulations Laura and Marc
