Not many people can say that singer Matthew Mole wrote a special song for their wedding
The South African musician performed Pennsylvania for the first time at Demi-Leigh and Tim Tebow’s Cape Town wedding.
The song was inspired by the couple’s love story.
“Pennsylvania by Matthew Mole was our first-dance song. @matthewmole wrote and was so kind to perform our first dance song live at our wedding. Thank you for capturing Tim and [my] love story in your music and giving us another way of holding on to so many beautiful memories,” Demi-Leigh wrote on Instagram.
Matthew is one of the Miss Universe 2017 winner’s favourite artists and made a surprise appearance at her engagement in January 2019
Tim secretly flew the singer to his family’s Florida farm for the romantic proposal.
Matthew had to hide behind a hay bale!
“I’m super honoured to have been part of Tim Tebow & Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters’s engagement. Tim asked me to hide behind a hay bale and once he popped the question I’d walk out, surprise Demi and play ‘The Wedding Song’ for them. His proposal was like something straight out of a movie, so smooth!” Matthew said after the proposal.
Matthew feels equally honoured to have written their wedding song
“A year ago, @timtebow asked me to play a song when he proposed to @demileighnp. Shortly after, Demi wanted to write a new, surprise wedding song for Tim.
“I’m incredibly honoured to have written this song for/with you guys! Thank you so much for having us there to celebrate your beautiful wedding day with you. You two are a serious power couple!” he wrote on Instagram.
