Sydney radio station KIIS 1065 received an email from Matt explaining that his dream was to surprise the love of his life, and mother of two, with the wedding she was planning but had to postpone indefinitely.
Money had always been tight for the young family from Sydney’s Revesby, with Matt unemployed, but after the sudden death of Kya’s mother in 2012, it looked as though their plans for a small wedding with family and friends may never happen.
Touched by their sad and romantic love story, Sydney radio station KIIS 1065 crew wanted to help the deserving couple by giving them a gorgeous wedding worth $80,000. But they didn’t stop there! Kya and Matt had chosen ‘Thinking Out Loud’, their favourite song, as the first dance as husband and wife but they never imagined Ed Sheeran himself would stop by the reception to perform it for them. The shock and then joy on the bride’s face is priceless, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd as Ed Sheeran gave a genuine and beautifully flawless acoustic performance.
