An Ed Sheeran superfan has tied the knot with his spitting image making the Perfect Duet alongside a host of Hollywood celebrity lookalikes.

Mrs and Mrs Sheeran-alike, Ty Jones, 29, (now Baron-Jones) and Amanda Baron (Baron-Jones), 40, walked down the aisle before sharing the ‘best day of their lives’.

Guests at the celebrity (lookalike) wedding of the year were also given a surprise when it turned out Ty wasn’t the only doppelganger in the room.

David Beckham, Prince Harry, Jack Sparrow, Gordon Ramsay, and Keith Lemon were all included on the guestlist for the Sheeran’s to be.

Amanda, a mental health worker, used to joke she would marry the Shape of You star — and after dating his doppelgänger for two years they shared their nuptials.

But Ty used to worry that his ginger roots weren’t helping him in his search for love and used to hold him back – but how wrong could he have been.

The mum-of-five was introduced to Ty through friends who met him at a Sheeran gig, and just over a year later he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife.

Amanda, from Carrington, Greater Manchester already thought all of her dreams had come true after having a daughter, Cherry, a nod to Ed’s wife Cherry Seaborn – and added the middle names Leigh and Sheeran, two years ago.

But they have now gone one better, and she said her wedding day was the most special day ever.

The newlyweds are now heading to Romania to have bit of downtime after the busy day.

Amanda told Metro.co.uk: ‘It was the best day of my life, better than any gig I’ve ever been too, and I just must be the luckiest person in the world. 

Ty said: ‘It was a wonderful day, the best ever, and we couldn’t have asked for anymore.

‘It felt weird being on the other side of the camera for once, and having the lookalikes at the wedding was amazing, it felt a bit like a busman’s holiday, but it still was a magical day.

‘I just can’t wait to get to spend everyday with Amanda and we’re looking forward to all the happy years ahead.’

He added: ‘I had an incline from the first time we met that this was going to be for life, and how right could I have been.

‘It’s exciting and I can’t wait for what is to come.’

The service at The Venue in Ormston, Manchester was bookmarked by Ed, as the pairwalked down the aisle to Ed’s song ‘One Life’ and left after a kiss to ‘I Don’t Care’ by the Grammy award-winning singer.

The Ed-themed wedding also had lyrics from the Suffolk singer etched into the cake, but the happy couple decided they didn’t want it all to be Sheeran related, and had their first dance to another ginge – James Arthur.

Amanda said: ‘It is one of my favourite songs, and we couldn’t have it all Ed-themed, people would think that’s weird. ‘

The superstar singer sadly wasn’t able to make their wedding bash in Manchester, but he did send them a message having to decline their invite because he wasn’t in the country.
