Bingham helps happy couple Thai the knot during summer trip

STUART BINGHAM has been showing his class on a top table again this summer – as best man for close pal Michael Sharp.

The former world champion flew to Thailand to be part of a stunning wedding ceremony in Bangkok and to meet some of his many fans in the snooker-loopy Southeast Asian country.

Ball Run was one of the exclusive guests invited to see Michael marry his beautiful Laotian lady Jah on Friday, May 12 (all three are pictured above).

Family and friends helped make it a special day for the happy couple before they set off for their honeymoon at a premier beach resort on the world-famous island of Phuket.

It was the second time Stuart has performed best man duties after previously being called upon by his brother Lee.

He spoke about how much he was looking forward to it in last month’s edition of The Ball Run podcast.

And the six-time ranking tournament winner was more than happy to answer the call for Michael, who is the boss at equipment specialists Cue Creator and one of Stuart’s valued sponsors.

Stuart also found time to dig out his clubs for a round at the Chee Chan Golf Course & Country Club with fellow wedding guest Paul Andrews.

And his productive trip will take in exhibition matches today (May 16) against pool legends Earl Strickland and Rodney Morris at the Double Kiss Pool Hall & Sports Lounge in the town of Nong Prue.
