Watch: 92-year-old granny steals the show as flower girl as she walks down the aisle to Ed Sheeran's 'Galway Girl'

She had never been in a wedding before besides for her own

A 92-year-old granny who said she had never been at a wedding before besides her own, took centre stage at her granddaughter's big day when she acted as flower girl and absolutely stole the show.

Georgiana Arlt, from Minnesota in midwestern U.S.A, walked down the aisle to a piano version of Ed Sheeran's Galway Girl while surprised wedding guests cheered the 92-year-old along the way.

In a video by Little Rascal Studio, which has now gone viral across the world, the elegant Granny Arlt is seen walking up the aisle with the aid of a flower covered stroller, which also doubled as a mobile holder for her flower basket.

Halfway to her seat, the enthusiastic grandma really gets into the spirit of the role when she scatters petals from her basket on to the aisle, marking the way for granddaughter Abby to make her big entrance.

Bride Abby Mershon, who tied the knot with her partner in a romantic and sun-filled outdoor ceremony on the 1st of July in Minnesota, U.S.A, admitted that she found herself peering out of a window at the bottom of the garden in an effort to witness her gran's big moment and said she knew she wanted to involve her gran in her ceremony in a big way since she started planning the day.

"My husband and I asked her together to be our flower girl in front of our entire family. My grandma shrieked at the top of her lungs. It was so sweet. She kept screaming, 'I’ve never been in a wedding besides my own.'"

And while the bride would have liked her grandfather to have also had a starring role in her big day, he sadly passed away almost exactly one year before she was due to walk up the aisle.

"I always knew that my grandma would be involved," the bride said.

As for granny Arlt, she said the experience was an honour she was only too happy to have.

"I was honoured. I was really, really honoured," Granny Arlt said.

"I was in shock. I gladly did it and I’m happy I did it and I’m happy I lived long enough to do it."
