Elton John spent his weekend on the wedding circuit -- not as a guest, as a performer ... and one of the gigs was for Jeffrey Katzenberg's daughter ... TMZ has learned.

John was a surprise guest as Laura Katzenberg (pictured below) got hitched to bigshot record producer Mark Sudack in Los Angeles this weekend.

John took to the piano and provided the music for the couple's first dance.

It's not too surprising, considering Jeffrey Katzenberg was running Disney back when Elton did the soundtrack to "The Lion King" ... and the two have been friends ever since.

But the night before the Katzenberg bash ... John performed at ANOTHER huge wedding -- when actress Holly Valance tied the knot with U.K. billionaire Nick Candy at the Paramount lot in L.A.

And back in August, Elton reportedly performed at a wedding in Canada ....after the groom made a giant donation to John's AIDS foundation.

Nice to see him in a place where he can just do whatever the hell he wants to, whether it's play at someone's wedding, funeral or whatever. I'm certain he is enjoying himself. The dancing stops, but the music never dies.

Cool, if anyone can set the tone for a wedding with a piano and voice, it's Elton John, he's an amazing talent on the piano, brilliant ability to create melody with lyrics, has a unique and familiar voice, and after life's challenges and obstacles can say...I'm still standin'

He has countless version of "candle in the wind" which can be used as wedding song, divorce song, birthday song, funereal song, supermarket inaugural song, ... if you have the money, of course.

Elton performed at Rush Limbaugh's most recent wedding, two or three years ago.

first off, the wedding was for jeffery katzenbergs daughter and Elton is close friends with the ex disney honcho who encouraged him to make the Lion King and also dreamworks road to eldorado plus Elton doesn't need the money it goes to his aids foundation.
