British couple gobsmacked after Keanu Reeves shows up at their wedding reception

British couple gobsmacked after Keanu Reeves shows up at their wedding reception

The bride was told a 'very special guest' had arrived.

A British couple have been left gobsmacked after none other than Keanu Reeves showed up at their wedding reception.

The surprise of a lifetime took place in at the Fawsley Hall hotel in Northamptonshire shortly after James and Nikki Roadnight said 'I do' last weekend.

The newlyweds crossed paths with the Matrix star on their big day because he was staying at the same hotel, and he made their reception one to remember.

Nikki told Newsweek that her husband told the actor they had just got married after seeing him in the hotel's bar area and asked if he'd like to join them for a drink.

The Hollywood actor went on to accept the invite, but said that he'd come along later in the evening.

No doubt to the surprise of James and the entire wedding party, Keanu was as good as his word and actually turned up.

"He was very friendly and said he would later on," Nikki said. "We didn't know if he would or not but it was cool that my husband had spoken to him!"

The bride said that an hour later, staff at the hotel told her a 'very special guest' had arrived, and they wanted to have a chat.

Nikki was then congratulated by the actor, who stayed to pose for photographs, but he didn't have a drink as he'd only just got off a long flight and was tired.

"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!"

Nikki added to LADbible: "It was all very exciting! Keanu was amazing and so down to earth. We are really big fans of all of his movies and everyone was a tad starstruck!"

One of the wedding guests also opened up about the actor on Twitter.

"One of my oldest friends got married today and Keanu Reeves popped in to say hi," she wrote. "Super nice guy and huge congratulations to my dear Nicola and her husband James!"

"He was just the best!!!!!" Nikki replied.

As reported by the Independent, it turns out that this isn't even the first time that the John Wick actor has shown up out of the blue at someone's wedding.

Back in 2018, he photobombed a couple who had just got married in New York.

The snap was shared by the groom's kilt maker, who wrote: "Best #Wedding Picture EVER!

"Moray & Maura recently got hitched in New York and were #photobombed by a rather scruffy chap passing by.

"We think Moray looks way better than #KeanuReeves in his stylish @slanjkilts

"Modern Inglis #tartan #kilt and Midnight Blue Crail kilt outfit!!"
