Paul’s friend and fellow American Idol contestant Stefano Langone had previously revealed he was due to perform at the nuptials after impressing Nikki with one of his songs.

He said: “I played Nikki a song of mine, and she said, ‘You need to play that at my wedding.’ She absolutely loved it and I’m really excited to play for them. I love them both.”

Paul, 27, knew 23-year-old Nikki was “The One” for him almost as soon as they started dating. He said: “It’s kind of one of those things you don’t expect. Like, last year I never would have thought I’d be getting married.

“She’s amazing. She’s the perfect girl. We fit each other; when you know, you know, and she’s the one.”
