That’s what happened to a couple who wedded last Friday (Sept 13) at Stoke Park Hotel in Buckinghamshire.

Bride Abi Lingwood expected a prank on her when husband Daniel told her that he had spotted Brad Pitt at the bar, near their wedding reception. Little did she know, it was real. “I actually gasped and said to myself, ‘Oh my god, it really is you!'” the star-struck bride told E!online.

The couple later asked for a photo which the Hollywood heartthrob politely obliged. “He congratulated us on our wedding said I looked great in my dress, shook our hands and said to pose for a picture. He was very accommodating,” Lingwood exclaimed.

To see the “World War Z” star in flesh naturally caused a stir at the wedding reception. It is said that the 49-year-old was later swarmed with photo requests that he had to make a stop with this, “This the last one, we are trying to have a meeting.” The A-lister was reportedly in the area to film movie “Fury” and was in the hotel for a business meeting. Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf was apparently present at the scene as well.

While the highlight of her big day unwittingly became Brad Pitt, Lingwood was not at all upset. “The girls were going wild and mental so Brad Pitt and the people he was with went upstairs to a room for their meeting. It has become more of a talking point than my wedding, but that is fine.”

Believe it or not, Queen Elizabeth dropped in at a wedding in Manchester last March for a couple whom had sent her an invitation earlier. According to Daily Mail, the couple, John and Frances Canning were told that they would be sharing the town hall, at which their wedding would be held, with a V.I.P. When they knew who it was, they sent an invitation to Buckingham Palace but received a polite reply declining the offer.

Little did they know, the Queen, accompanied by Prince Phillip and several royal dignitaries, had a surprise in store for them. Midway into the wedding, Her Majesty walked into the room and extended her congratulations to the Cannings. “It was bizarre that she knew our names. She said: ‘Hello John, Hello Frances.’ Apparently, we had been specially added into her rota. (The Queen) commented on how beautiful Frances looked in her dress and wished us all the best for the future.”
