A dad recreated a romantic wedding scene from the film Love Actually on his daughter’s big day – and the Gazette helped to make it happen.

Father-of-the-bride Sean Pike got in touch after the band he had lined up to perform All You Need is Love for the movie recreation pulled out at the last minute.

An appeal in the Gazette saw the Fleetville Swing Band from St Albans get in touch and the big surprise went without a hitch.

Sean said: “By the end many of the congregation were in tears and the applause given at the end said it all. It was absolutely fantastic, it couldn’t have gone better.”

Laura, 26, married Shane Walker, 27, on Saturday at St Barnabas Church in Adeyfield.
