Harry Styles made a bold move by pleading with one of his fans to ditch her new husband of a few hours and run away with him instead — jokingly of course.
The One Direction star apparently made a video for bride-to-be Tash Gershfield, asking her to run away with him instead of marrying fiancé James Tash.
“I’m a massive One Direction fan, and Harry is my favorite and always has been,” said Gershfield. “During my husband James’ speech, he told me he wanted to put me through a little test to see how much I really loved him. He then got my friend Alex to project the video of Harry up on the wall for all 250 guests to see.”
The young newlywed decided that, no matter how tempted she might be to run away with her celebrity crush, she would go through with marrying her guy.
Gershfield Instagrammed portions of Styles’ video proposal.
The video came about because a friend of the couple works with the band and knows what a huge fan the bride is of Styles. So he conspired with the singer to make the video.
“[Harry] mentions in the video how annulments are cheap these days and easily done,” Tash said, “and [asks me] to meet him at Orli [a popular restaurant] in Borehamwood, which is in North London.”

The singer told Tash he’d wait for her for three hours. “As this video was being played my jaw was on the floor, and all the guests were in shock too,” the newlywed told E! News. “Every single guest was shouting, ‘Go! Go!’ and then the microphone was handed to me…The first thing I said was simply, ‘Can you play that again?'”
Tash said following the showing of the video at the reception, her hubby “asked what I wanted to do, stay or go. Eventually, I had to answer…Of course, knowing it was a little joke, I stayed and everyone cheered.”
