New research has revealed that 1 in 7 British couples who are getting married this year have settled on an Ed Sheeran track for their first dance song; with John Legend and Adele the next most popular choices. 

The theme, the first dance music and the venue are the hardest decisions to make when it comes to arranging a wedding, according to new research. Although British bride and grooms-to-be may struggle to decide on what artist will sing their first dance song, it appears that Ed Sheeran has topped the list for two years; 2016 and 2017.
