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.

Elton always performs at funerals (Princess Diana) or weddings. He is freaky.

Times must really be tough if Elton is singing at weddings. What's next singing on the corner in NY city for money?

I guess that candle in the wind finally blew out! Try out for American idol. You get a million doll hairs if you win.

Not unusual at all for an entertainer, and in fact encouraged by entertainers when they are local to an event in a county and know the security will be good. Most times these private party one hour events are very lucrative and usually paid in cash.

I guess cashflow is a little low over Elton's house.

He's been performing for damn near ever, he's made a ton of money so he may as well do what ever he (she) wants to do.

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.
