Ellie Goulding surprises Bristol NHS worker with online wedding performance

A Bristol-based NHS worker was given a wedding to remember as singer Ellie Goulding made a surprise appearance during an online ceremony.

Hayley Pitman works as a Theatre Practitioner in a Bristol hospital.

She was due to marry rugby coach partner Harvey Skelton on Saturday 11 April in Cheltenham.

Wedding directory company For Better For Worse organised this online ceremony and secretly arranged for the Grammy-nominated singer to serenade the couple with what would have been their first dance song.

Hayley says that despite not being able to be with family and friends in person, the virtual wedding was "a magical experience".

For Better For Worse is searching for other couples to share their own personal ‘love in lockdown’ stories and is raising money for the NHS Charities Together in honour and support of Hayley and hundreds of thousands of other frontline workers.
