Alex Turner serenaded a couple during their first dance at their wedding this weekend, alongside a star-studded band.
The Arctic Monkeys frontman led a band including Queens Of The Stone Age and Mini Mansions’ Michael Shuman, Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa, and former Wires On Fire frontman Evan Weiss.
The wedding was that of Zach Dawes, bassist for Mini Mansions and The Last Shadow Puppets, and his partner Molly. In videos posted on social media, Turner and the band can be seen performing from a stage as the couple dance on an empty dancefloor.
The band and Turner covered Dion’s ‘Only You Know’, which originally appeared on the singer-songwriter’s 1975 album, ‘Born To Be With You’. Watch footage of the moment below.
