The Saturdays singer married rugby star Foden in her native Ireland on Saturday, but details of the wedding reception have so far been kept firmly under wraps.Now Darragh O'Dea, who was hired to DJ at the reception, has opened up about the couple's antics on the night.Writing on his blog, O'Dea revealed that Una was persuaded to get up on stage and sing for her new husband, performing Sweet Home Alabama with Derry band The Mindbenders.While many would think Foden wouldn't try and match up to his musical wife, it seems he was persuaded to perform Kings Of Leon hit Sex On Fire, with backing vocals kindly provided by the rest of The Saturdays.The Saturdays stars Vanessa White, Frankie Sandford, Mollie King and Rochelle Wiseman are thought to have accompanied Ben's rendition of Sex On Fire (Picture: Wenn)
Darragh wrote: 'Of course Una was invited/pushed/forced to get up and sing a song and did a great version of Sweet Home Alabama.'Ben also had to sing…..SEX ON FIRE!! I think it was a tie on who was better!!!! Support on the night came from The Saturdays!!!'The DJ also revealed Ben's speech was a cute dedication to his new wife, but things veered off track when he thanked Una's band mates.Foden decided to add a bit of rapping to his speech, with O'Dea revealing: 'He pretended he was Flo-Rida and tried to rap the opening part of Higher.'But Rochelle Wiseman was impressed with his efforts, writing on Twitter afterwards: 'Never been so proud of anyone! My @UnaTheSats was THE most beautiful bride, very emotional, @ben_foden wins best speech! Love you both xx'Una Healy posted this cute snap of the Foden family (Picture: unathesats/Instagram)
O'Dea even managed to get a picture with the bride and groom, but found himself in trouble after posting it online.The couple signed an exclusive magazine deal for the rights to pictures from the ceremony and the images, so it was no surprise that his blog was subsequently taken down.But Una tried to keep fans satisfied by posting a cute family snap the day after the wedding, writing: 'Meet the Fodens!'Healy also gushed about her wedding day, writing: 'Had THE BEST day of my life yesterday!woke up so happy to know I'm now Mrs Foden! Thank you all so much for all the lovely tweets xxx
