As this is a Feelgood Blog, I’m always on the outlook for those unusual really happy news stories. Unfortunately, good happy news stories are not that easy to find. But here is a fantastic one. Read on:
Rod Stewart surprises couple by singing at Vegas wedding after Thomas Cook nightmare
A couple who got married in Las Vegas had a surprise guest at their wedding — Sir Rod Stewart.
Sharon Cook and Andrew Aitchison, from Liverpool, almost had their big day cancelled after Thomas Cook went bust.
But Caesars Palace hotel arranged for the couple to be flown over and even surprised them with a performance from Rod.
The Maggie May singer, 74, serenaded the bride and groom, who described their special day as being like a “dream”.
Andy took to Twitter to post a picture of the two of them at the altar with Rod performing while a guitarist and violinist supported him.
Andy tweeted: “So Rod Stewart just turned up at our wedding and sang to my wife! I can’t believe what has happened in the last week and this has just topped it off.
“Thank you Rod you’ve absolutely made our dream wedding you absolute legend.”
The couple had planned to fly out to Vegas with Thomas Cook and spent £9,000 on flights.
But when the firm went bankrupt last month, they thought their wedding would have to be cancelled.
They contacted Caesars Palace for help and staff sorted out new flights with American airline Delta.
Delta flew the couple and 14 of their family and friends out from London just three days before the wedding.
And as Rod was already at the hotel for his Vegas residency, he was happy to surprise them with a private show.
Rod was supported by a violinist and a guitarist.
He even gave them two tickets to a performance on Friday.
The couple told Delta: “On Monday, we lost everything for our dream wedding in Vegas. Then Wednesday morning Delta called to say they would help us.
“They brought our dream back. It’s just been incredible.”
