Would you play a song by Sir Paul McCartney at Macca's own wedding ?
Mark Ronson did, and it worked a treat as he performed a DJ set as the Beatles legend tied the knot to Nancy Shevell three years ago.
Speaking about the relatively intimate ceremony, the star - who produced two tracks on Macca's album New in 2013 - insisted his decision to play Band on the Run by Wings went down well.
He told Billboard magazine: "It was an intimate, family event. I started at midnight and no one would leave until five in the morning.
"Ronnie Wood was on the dancefloor, so I played [The Faces'] Ohh La La. And Band on the Run got a good response."
Paul and Nancy on their big day
While Mark might be used to buddying up with superstars, Fleur East is one star who perhaps hasn't made the best first impression.
The X Factor runner-up covered the Uptown Funk - the DJ's collaboration with Bruno Mars - on the talent show, and her performance led to him having to rush the release.
Mark wasn't best pleased as Fleur's was going to come out before the original song - but he didn't want to put it out so soon.
He previously told NME magazine: "I realised this girl's cover is going to come out before our own ... we rushed it."
