Bon Jovi gives fan away at wedding

Jon Bon Jovi has given one of his fans away at her wedding.

The rocker walked superfan Branka Delic down the aisle at the same venue where he got married in 1989, the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.

According to the Daily Mirror, bride Branka and her groom Gonzalo Cladera had set up a website called BonJoviWalkMeDownTheAisle.com to campaign for Jon to play the role of father of the bride.

It just so happened that Bon Jovi were playing at nearby venue the MGM Grand Garden Arena on the same night, so Jon granted the bride's wish of giving her away.

He later tweeted a photo of himself arm-in-arm with a shocked looking Branka, walking down the aisle and captioned it: "Congratulations @branksd! May you & Gonzalo have a lifetime of happiness, love & memories together - ALWAYS!"

Branka tweeted: "You did more than make my dream come true, you changed my life forever! An amazing man with an amazing generous heart."

The couple's wedding appeal on their website read: "She might not be marrying Bon Jovi, but the next best option is for her to walk down the same aisle he did 20 good strong years ago. In Branka's mind, the wedding gods have come together because JBJ is performing at MGM Grand that same night.

"The only problem is there's a real chance Branka will skip out on the wedding and go to the concert instead. Gonz has waited 14 years for this day, and if Branka skips it, he'll have to wait another 14."
