A newlywed couple’s first dance has gone viral after they were joined by their former Riverdance castmates.
Singer Emma Warren and her husband Shaun Kelly tied the knot in early May and marked the occasion with a party in Donegal, where they celebrated with family and friends.
As part of the reception, Emma, who joined the show 11 years ago and was its lead singer for five years, and Shaun, who also worked with the dance troupe, treated their guests to a performance – and surprised everyone by getting their former castmates involved.
Almost two dozen of both male and female ‘Riverdancers’ took to the dancefloor and hopped and tapped to the show’s theme song – with the newlyweds front and centre.
The sweet video went viral on TikTok, where it was shared by LadBible Ireland. The bride later revealed that they are the 70th couple who met through the show and tied the knot.
