Brad Pitt is a star people pay to see in movies all the time, but one lucky British couple didn’t only get a freebie — they got a story to tell for years when the star crashed their wedding.
No, Brad Pitt didn’t star in Wedding Crashers, but he did crash a wedding in real life — which is the kind of nuptials surprise you can’t pay for or plan. These people are going to totally get all the repins.
Pitt wasn’t invited to the wedding of Daniel and Abi Lingwood at Stoke Park Hotel in Buckinghamshire, England. But it didn’t stop him from attending, and making a big splash.
Now honeymooning in Dubai, the newly-named Mrs. Lingwood tells E! that she and hubby David were shocked to see the Hollywood heartthrob on their big day — she gushes:
“We had the most perfect day… I was in the middle of having a dance with my friends when Daniel came and said, ‘You need to come with me now.’ I had no idea why and thought it was odd. He started dragging me away from our reception and when I asked why he said, ‘Brad Pitt is in the bar.’ I thought he was joking or that maybe our friends had got us a look-alike as a joke!”
“I said to him, ‘Yeah right, and he said, ‘No really, he is in the bar!’ We went through to the private bar… I couldn’t see anything, but could hear our friend who had a camera ask if the newlyweds could have a picture… I heard an American accent say, ‘Sure’…I walked through into another part if the bar and came face to face with Brad!”

Linwood admits Brad Pitt didn’t really crash their wedding so much as they crashed his meeting — but the star studded sighting added a lot of interest to the young wife’s big day.
