An Irish priest has become an overnight internet singing sensation after a video of him singing a surprise song during a wedding was uploaded to YouTube and went viral in a few hours.

The interesting part is the couple had no idea that the priest was about to do this. They were not locals but had chosen this particular church because it was close to the venue they had chosen for their reception.  Father Kelly told the BBC "Normally local eople know I sing at weddings, funerals or when I'm asked, but they didn't know." The bride was given a slight hint but it was unlikely she took it seriously.

The couple have left on their honeymoon and have no idea that their wedding video has gone viral.

Have you ever been at a wedding where something this surprising happened?
