Weddings are a big day for the couple getting married. Many months go into planning the special occasion, and often times there is a lot of stress involved in making sure that everything goes off without a hitch.
A big pet peeve amongst people planning their wedding is guests who don’t rsvp and just show up on the day. It’s happened to a few of my friends, and each one recalls a scramble to accommodate the wedding crashers.
But there is one couple who were pleasantly surprised by the surprise wedding guest Keanu Reeves! The well-known actor arrived at one couple’s wedding reception after meeting the groom at the hotel venue.
Reeves was staying at the Fawsley Hall in Northamptonshire, England when he met groom James Roadnight, who was also having his wedding there.
According to the Daily Mail, James invited Reeves to stop by their reception for a drink and to say hello to guests, including his bride, Nikki. And Reeves took him up on that offer!
Bride Nikki later shared with Newsweek, “He was very friendly and said he would later on. We didn’t know if he would or not but it was cool that my husband had spoken to him!”
Then, roughly an hour after the meeting, one member of the hotel’s staff approached Nikki and informed her that a “very special guest” wanted to say hi.
Nikki recalled, “It was all very exciting and I went to say hi and introduce myself, and I offered him a drink but he declined that and said he’d just had a long flight so wouldn’t stay long but he was so kind and friendly and congratulated us on our wedding.”
Nikki also added that Reeves was “kind enough to do some pictures and our wedding photographer was able to capture some too!”
According to the couple, Reeves also interacted with their guests and stopped for photos with them as well! Check out the video below:
