Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid, set up by Ed Sheeran
It’s not clear how Courteney and Ed became friends, but when he was writing his 2014 album X, she let him stay at her Malibu beach house for free. He told The Sun, “There was no rent but I made the bed and cups of tea and things like that.”
While he was there, his friend Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid came over to help with the album, and things escalated from there.
“We are certainly grateful to Ed for introducing us”, Courteney told The Sun. “I can’t imagine him not playing something at the wedding. It’ll be a musical night.”
Unfortunately, the pair, who got engaged after six months of dating, called off their wedding in December 2015, but rekindled things a few months later.
