The last thing anyone would want is for their wedding to be gatecrashed by an unexpected guest.
This happened to James and Nikki Roadnight when they were exchanging their vows…but the guest was in fact someone they wanted there.
The couple from the UK were celebrating their marriage when James ran into John Wick star Keanu Reeves at the Fawsley Hall where the reception was being held.
James invited the Hollywood heartthrob to the wedding and join the guests for a drink if he wanted to.
“My husband saw him in the bar area and told him he’d just got married and invited Keanu to come over to say hello and have a drink with us if he wanted to,” Nikki told 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!”
About an hour later, hotel staff approached Nikki and told her there was a “special guest” who wanted to speak to her and she was then introduced to Keanu Reeves.
“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,” she said.
“He was kind enough to do some pictures and our wedding photographer was able to capture some too! Then he took the time to speak to some of our guests and have more photos done!”
The huge Keanu Reeves fans were ecstatic that their day was blessed with the actor’s presence.
