Many couples’ weddings have been affected by the outbreak, forcing postponements and cancellations. Others have taken advantage of the onset and ease of virtual communication, creating virtual weddings via webcam. This past weekend in the U.K., a couple received an unexpected guest at their wedding to perform their wedding song live. Ellie Goulding appeared as out of almost thin air to surprise the unexpected couple, where she performed “Love Me Like You Do” for the couple’s first dance. This heart warming act casts a great deal of hope for those whose special day may seem uncertain.
