Ed Sheeran reportedly wants Beyonce to sing at his upcoming wedding to Cherry Seaborn.
The chart-topping singers collaborated on Ed’s single Perfect Duet last December. And according to an insider close to the flame-haired star, he’d like the Crazy in Love artist to take to the stage when he gets hitched.
“He’s been working with Beyonce and is hoping she will perform at the bash, which he says will be like a mini festival,” the source told British magazine Closer.
Ed is also allegedly planing on inviting plenty of his celebrity friends to the event, including Harry Styles, Cara Delevingne and Taylor Swift, both who previously dated the One Direction star.
And Ed has supposedly requested that the day be as fun yet laid back as possible.
“Ed’s hired a wedding planning team and has given them an unlimited budget – insisting he just wants it to be the best party ever,” the insider said. “Guests will dine on traditional favourites like bangers and mash and pie and gravy – as well as being able to drink beers and ales, instead of champagne and cocktails.”
The couple, who are old school friends, will reportedly tie the knot in the grounds of their home in Suffolk, where it was recently revealed that Ed has bought four properties next to each other in order to create his own country estate. This provides the perfect space for starting a family, which the source believes is something both Ed and Cherry are hoping for.
“They want at least four or five kids and Ed says he can’t wait to get cracking on making some mini Eds!” they laughed.
Where is Cherry Seaborn from?
British Cherry met Ed Sheeran at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, Suffolk, where the crooner is believed to have had a crush on his classmate.
The pair finished their secondary education there.
Cherry then attended Duke University, which is located in Durham, North Carolina.
After months of dealing with a long distance relationship with Ed, The Sun exclusively revealed that the 24-year-old had moved back to the UK from the US to be with the Divide singer. She even led her hockey team to back-to-back British University championships in 2012 and 2013.
On Duke’s official website, Cherry said: “Ever since I was in high school I’ve always wanted to study in the United States.
“I looked into different schools that were good academically and also at hockey, and Duke was one that really jumped out at me.
“I made my decision purely based on recommendations.
“Duke has such a good name in England, and there were a lot of people who told me to go there. There were also some English girls [at Duke], so I talked to them too.”
Before Cherry returned back to British soil, it was rumoured that she worked as an Advisory Consultant at Deloitte & Touche LLP in New York.

What does Cherry Seaborn do?
When did Cherry Seaborn and Ed Sheeran get engaged and how long have they been dating?
It’s believed that the loved-up couple have been in a relationship since 2015.
At first, they kept their dating life under wraps.
But the couple were pictured kissing for the first time in 2016 when his close friend Taylor Swift threw them a party to celebrate their one year anniversary.
Ed Sheeran revealed that he had proposed to Cherry Seaborn over the Christmas holiday on Instagram.
The Sun has known for some time that things were getting serious between the couple, especially after Ed hinted that he might like to tie the knot with the hockey player in the future.
When asked if his relationship with Cherry has the potential to be a “marriage thing”, the 25-year-old said: “I’m pretty…yeah I feel pretty good about it.”
Ed also confessed he’d “love” to start a family with his old school pal.
During an appearance on Australian radio show The Kyle and Jackie O Show, Ed said: “Yeah, potentially. I would like some kids.”
And although Ed and Cherry don’t have any sprogs just yet, they are now engaged and indeed living together – and have pet cats to parent.
Ed also previously gushed about being “ready” for fatherhood.
He said when asked if he was excited to become a dad in the future: “Massively, yeah. I wanted to be a dad, like, last year.
“I’m ready, let’s go – tour bus babies, little fat, chubby babies that just walk around.”
