A bride and groom got a Hollywood surprise at their wedding when Keanu Reeves made an appearance at the reception.
After two years together, James and Nikki Roadnight tied the knot this past weekend in front of family, friends, and Nikki’s five-year-old daughter.
The Unexpected Surprise One Bride Received at Her Wedding
During the reception at Fawsley Hall in Northamptonshire, their magical day took a most outstanding turn when James discovered that Keanu Reeves was staying at the hotel.
“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. 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!” Nikki Roadnight told Newsweek.
An hour later, a hotel staff member informed the bride that a “very special guest” was outside and wanted to speak to her.
When she got there, she was greeted by the John Wick star.
“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 said.
Nikki, James and their guests were left “a bit starstruck” by the encounter and it made for quite the talking point on their big day.
“The wedding was absolutely perfect anyway and we had the most magical day. Keanu Reeves dropping by to say hello was just out of this world. Something to remember and the start of many more adventures together,” Nikki said to Newsweek.
The wedding was magical and the surprise visit and Reeves’ approachable demeanor regardless of his Hollywood success was icing on an already grand wedding cake.
