One of the original boybanders from the ‘90s, Gary Barlow of Take That, has been feeling charitable these days, popping up at unsuspecting newlyweds’ wedding receptions to perform a song.

If you’re not that familiar with Barlow, he was a founding member of Take That with Robbie Williams. Barlow went off on his own to pursue a solo career, but it wasn’t what he expected, leaving him the odd man out.

In the documentary When Corden Met Barlow, James Corden spends a few days with the musician to talk about his musical career coming to a halt, the dark times, and how Barlow got back on his feet, once again becoming a beloved singing sensation. More recently Barlow is known for being a judge on seasons eight through ten of The X Factor, and he was awarded an OBE by Queen Elizabeth II in 2012.

While Barlow believes the past is the past as said in the documentary, he’s very appreciative of getting a second chance, and he’s particularly grateful to his fans.

And what better way to acknowledge their loyalty: oh, to turn up at their weddings unannounced.

Barlow took to his Twitter feed in January 2015 making this announcement:

As you can expect, the wedding invites came flooding in:

Just this week Barlow made a surprise appearance at a couples’ wedding in Berkshire, England, which you can check out below:
