Wedding crashers are generally dreaded rather than welcomed…unless you happen to be a celebrity. Here, all the stars who have showed up, sans invite, to ceremonies and receptions—making these couples’ big days even more unforgettable.
Beyoncé and Jay Z
The singer and her rapper husband decided to visit a church while holidaying in Portofino, Italy, in September 2014—only to inadvertently crash a wedding.
The “Shape Of You” singer surprised and performed for an Australian couple, who, after the death of the bride’s mother, had fallen on hard times. “Just surprised this lovely couple’s first dance. Available for weddings, birthdays, and bar mitzvahs, contact your local supermarket for details,” Sheeran captioned his March 2015 Instagram photo.
Irish newlyweds Eithne McAdam and groom J.P. Swaine were joined by Schumer, who was in town promoting Trainwreck, at a bar after their August 2015 ceremony in Dublin.
Also in attendance at the happy couple’s casual reception was Trainwreck director Judd Apatow. The king of comedy joined Amy Schumer as they celebrated the newlyweds over a pint of beer.
In April 2010, Lady Gaga was staying at the Intercontinental Hotel in Adelaide, Australia. When she walked by the ballroom mid-ceremony on Courtney and Reece Kerr’s special day, she decided to join in.
Pitt was enjoying a drink at the Maidenhead hotel when he was spotted by bride and groom Abi and Daniel Lingwood, who persuaded the actor to take a quick snap with them. “The girls were going wild and mental so Brad Pitt and the people he was with went upstairs to a room for their meeting,” Abi told the Maidenhead Advertiser in September 2013. “It has become more of a talking point than my wedding, but that is fine.”
In June 2016, the singer surprised Max Singer and Kenya Smith at their wedding in Brand Beach, New Jersey, after Max’s sister Ali reached out to Swift and told her that the couple had wed in a hospital room where Max’s late mother spent her final days. Swift performed a stripped-down version of “Blank Space,” which became the bride and groom’s first dance song.
The NBA champion gave Shaun and Jamie Kolnick the ultimate wedding photo when he happened to be meeting a Sports Illustrated reporter at their wedding venue, the Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove. “A member of his crew said, ‘We’re still working, get out of here.’ And I said, ‘I’m the bride'” Jamie told Good Morning America in July 2012. “They couldn’t find a way out, honestly, so they came through and said let’s take a picture and we got our money shot.”
Newlyweds Elisabeth and Ryan Barclay were taking their wedding pictures in Central Park in September 2016 when Hanks stopped by to congratulate them. He later posted the selfie on Twitter, writing “Elizabeth and Ryan! Congrats and blessings! Hanx.”
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson
The Rock and Danny DeVito were on a press trip for Jumanji: The Next Level when they heard a commotion at their Mexican resort. The two crashed the reception and documented their experience on Instagram.
The Jumanji co-stars surprised newlyweds Kristine and Will Abbot at their reception by grabbing the mic and serenading the couple with “Unforgettable.” The actors even posed for photos with the bride and groom and their four children. “I’ve never crashed a wedding, but with Devito this was truly UNFORGETTABLE,” Johnson said on Instagram.
Lil Nas X
The Beach Boys
When The Beach Boys found out that their soundcheck in Cleveland interrupted the nearby wedding ceremony of Mark Kent and Jamie Diadium, they felt so bad that they invited the entire guest list to their concert that night.
Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt photobombed a couple who were taking their wedding photos in Paris in 2013. “Only in Paris you walking in the square and the bride and groom run leave to the proceedings to to take a picture,” Bolt wrote on Instagram.
The Orange Is the New Black star crashed a wedding while in Australia with two of her OITNB co–stars: Yael Stone (Lorna Morello) and Danielle Brooks (Taystee).
Kevin Hart and Josh Gad
While filming Wedding Ringer, Kevin Hart and Josh Gad crashed a wedding in real life. The actors took to the stage to wish Rajan and Chandni Patel well on their wedding day with an impromptu speech.
The actor was in Georgia to renew his pilot’s license when he struck up a conversation with wedding guests who invited him to festivities the following day, according to an Imgur thread. Arriving in a black T-shirt and baseball cap, Travolta joined the bride and groom for photos after the ceremony.
But wait: John Travolta has apparently made it a habit of joining in on wedding festivities. In a 2009 interview, he reminisced about a 1977 wedding in Santa Barbara that he and Robin Williams crashed together.
