The performance was organised by Kyle & Jackie O of radio station KIIS 1065, who had helped give young Sydney couple Kya and Matt Debono the wedding of their dreams.

Kya, a mother of two, had been struggling since the sudden death of her mother in 2012, and were unsure if she and Matt would be able to cover the costs of the small wedding they had planned.

But the DJs surprised the couple live on air by gifting them with a wedding worth $80,000, which was topped off by Sheeran’s special guest appearance.

“When Ed heard that we were helping to organise a special wedding for two of our deserving listeners, Matt and Kya, and that they had chosen one of his songs for their wedding dance he offered to come and surprise them and give them a wedding gift they will never forget,” wrote Kyle & Jackie O via YouTube.

“Congratulations to Matt and Kya we hope you both find the happiness you deserve. And Ed Sheeran, well, we just love you!”

The singer is currently touring Australia and recenty took time out from playing gigs to film a cameo appearance in long-running Australian soap opera Home and Away.
