Looking for the perfect musical accompaniment to your wedding? The most fashionable choice of wedding singer this summer has been Florence Welch.

The flamed-haired chanteuse, also known as Florence and the Machine, has performed at two of the most written-about celebrity weddings this summer.

The supposedly "secret" nuptials between actors Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively last weekend in South Carolina featured a performance from Welch. The singer is friends with Lively, who starred in the TV series Gossip Girl.

Welch was also said to have sung at what was dubbed "the alternative wedding of the year", that of Lady Mary Charteris, the model, and her musician husband Robbie Furze.

After cornering the celebrity wedding market, it will be interesting to see if next year she decides to branch out into anniversaries, birthdays, bar mitzvahs and the like.
