CAMBS: Pop star drops in at wedding to surprise bride and groom

A NEWLYWED couple were given a wedding gift to truly remember when singer Craig David made a surprise visit to their reception.

Lisa Potter-Coyne, 29, a make-up artist, and husband Theo Coyne, 28, had jokingly posted an invitation to the R’n’B star on YouTube, and the spoof version of his hit song 7 Days quickly spread across the globe.

The video was posted online in May and the couple were married at Ely Register Office on Friday, gathering at Lisa’s parents’ house in Witchford the following day for a party with friends and family.

At about 9pm they were given the surprise of their lives, with the multi-platinum selling artist making the trip from his home in Los Angeles to make a special appearance.

And the Southampton-born singer even took to the microphone to lead a singalong with Lisa, Theo and guests.
