Florence Welch reportedly performed at the wedding of Hollywood couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively over the weekend, singing three songs for the couple.

The wedding, something of a surprise in the showbiz world, saw Gossip Girl star Lively and her boyfriend of a year Reynolds marry in Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina on Sunday (Sept 9).

Florence reportedly sang three songs at the reception. She is a close friend of Lively's and even appeared on an episode of Gossip Girl in a musical capacity back in 2011.

The marriage is Lively's first, however Ryan Reynolds was previously wed to Avengers actress Scarlett Johansson from 2008-2011.

Florence's turn as a wedding singer capped a busy weekend for the 'Spectrum' star coming, as it did, after a headline slot at Bestival on the Isle of Wight. The singer also announced a huge UK arena tour for this coming December too.
