Liz Ravenhall had everything planned to the T for her wedding. She got the perfect dress, the perfect venue, rings, invited her guests, and hired a videographer.
She had no idea that she would receive the surprise of her life during her special day after all that planning.
Little did she know that her husband had something planned up his sleeve. Something that would make her know just how loved and appreciated she was as a music and dance teacher at Jaykays Dance Company in Warwickshire, England.
The ceremony began just the way it was planned. She walked down the aisle in her gown, met her husband, and was ready to exchange her wedding vows.
Her husband, Ollie Ravenhall, pulled a box from out of his pocket.
She suddenly heard a sound coming from the back of the church in the galley of St. Lawrence Church in Meriden. Her husband motioned for her to turn around.
Her hand immediately flew to cover her mouth when she did. That’s when the angelic sound of her pupils singing Christina Perry’s beautiful love song “A Thousand Years” began.
Liz was overcome with emotion and began to cry happy tears.
Her husband kissed her forehead and put his arm around her as his wife wiped away her tears with a napkin. She began to happily sing along with them. The students then waved to their beloved teacher during the sweet ceremony.
The beautiful surprise was put together by Ollie and Liz’s boss, Jeren Hogben, the owner of Jaykay’s Dance Company.
The surprise was captured by Van Rensburg Wedding Film.
“The children were amazing at keeping the surprise secret,” Van Rensburg Wedding Film wrote in their YouTube caption of the video.
The video was originally posted on Vimeo where it was viewed more than 1.9 million times.
The YouTube version got, even more, play with 6.2 million views.
The story ended up going viral and was published in a variety of media outlets from England to the U.S. It was a truly touching moment and you could tell just how much Liz’s students care for her.
“Elizabeth and Oliver’s wedding day was packed with special moments and they created memories to last a lifetime! So many congratulations to a genuinely lovely couple,” Van Rensburg Wedding Film wrote on YouTube.
