Future husband Ronny, smiling as he waits patiently for his bride to appear, but he is totally unaware of what was about to happen.
The church doors open and in walks his bride, Maria on her father's arm. Things then take a surprising and unusual turn as the bride produces a radio microphone. Then the bride serenades her future husband with a great rendition of the song "You Raise Me Up," made famous by Brian Kennedy and then by Westlife.
Maria loves singing and, in fact, won third place in Norway's most popular talent show, Idol, back in 2006.
As she walks slowly down the aisle, singing to her future husband, the bridegroom is visibly moved as his bride serenades him. We see him constantly wiping the tears from his eyes, but he's smiling all the while.
The father of the bride, even got a chance to join in with a few lines of the song, suitably altered for the wedding ceremony . . . "Now is the time to give away my daughter, You know it is time so please take care of her."
