A CO Galway priest decided to swap the pulpit for the dance floor to add some romance to a couple's wedding day.

Fr John O'Gorman encouraged the smiling bride and groom and their wedding guests to dance in the church aisle during the ceremony.

He was marrying Rois Lydon and Paudie Mannion earlier this month when he decided a musical interlude was the perfect time for a dance.

Fr O'Gorman pulled the bride up to dance with her father, before getting the groom paired up with his mother.

He then joined the bridesmaids and groomsmen in the impromptu dance, much to the delight of the wedding congregation.

The moment was captured by Make My Day Productions and shared on its Facebook page.
