Groom serenades his new wife with One Direction on their wedding day

Everyone knows you’re never supposed to upstage a bride on her wedding day, yet this ballsy groom took the risk – and it paid off.

Seth Flickett stole the show from his beautiful bride at their wedding reception by putting on his dance shoes to One Direction.

The newly-wed bride was sat awkwardly on a chair on the dance floor while Seth, teamed with a troupe of loyal groomsmen, broke into a dance routine to 1D’s What Makes You Beautiful.

It has to be said – it is slightly painful to watch. But amidst the backflips, cheesy boyband moves and cringey miming, his alternative first dance really did seem to win the heart of bride Natalie.

Uploading the 1D dance routine to YouTube, Seth wrote: “I wanted to give Natalie, my beautiful bride, an awesome gift at the wedding reception.”

Apparently the husband-to-be had been preparing the surprise for months, even dedicating his own stag do to practice the choreography with his back up team.

Sure he earned MAJOR brownie points for this stint.
