12 Times Celebrities Crashed The Weddings Of Normals

No matter how big or small your wedding is, one thing you’ll want to keep an eye out for is wedding crashers. Yes, they are real, and no, they aren’t always as fun and entertaining as Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson were in the movie.

It happens more than you’d think, especially at venues where there are multiple weddings happening in one night, or where the guest count is so high that no one is likely to notice. It's easy for outsiders to sneak in, blend in, and enjoy as much free food and booze as they can before anyone realizes and kicks them out.

But there is one situation in which you might welcome an uninvited guest — and that's when said guest happens to be a major celebrity. Every now and then, whether on purpose or by accident, a star stumbles into a wedding celebration. And sometimes, they stick around long enough for a picture, a dance, or even a Champagne toast.

Ahead, a few of our favorite stories about celebs (hello, T. Swift!) who randomly turned up at the weddings of normals.

Katy Perry

While on tour in St. Louis, Katy Perry found time to stop by Hayley Rosenblum and Blonie Dudney's wedding at the Four Seasons, according to local station KSDK. Guests said she came in at the end of the reception and danced with guests for 10 minutes or so.

A video posted on YouTube shows Perry having a blast, dancing and taking pics with the bride and bridesmaids. The video includes a screenshot of her Insta Story from the night, where she wrote, "Wedding crashers OOPS" and "We were just looking for an after-party." It happens.
The Weeknd

A bride and groom were taking their wedding photos in downtown New York City, when they had the ultimate celebrity sighting: the Weeknd and his girlfriend Selena Gomez.

"The couple was taking wedding photos in front of the homes on the picturesque MacDougal Alley, a gated residence in Greenwich Village," a witness told Entertainment Tonight. "During the romantic shoot, the groom spotted the Weeknd in a parked SUV."

The groom seized the day, and "approached the car and asked him if he would join in the photos, and he agreed!" the source said. "Selena waited in the car but passed along her well wishes!"
Kristen Stewart

Kirsten and Kayleigh Jennings were hosting their wedding reception at Pizzeria Gusto in Winnipeg, Canada, when in walked Kristen Stewart and her girlfriend Stella Maxwell — Stewart was in town shooting a movie. The famous couple ended up drinking and dancing with the wedding guests until 1 a.m.

"I told Kir, 'Hey, let's just treat them as random guests. Let's just treat them with kindness — southern hospitality. Winnipeg hospitality,'" Kayleigh told CBC News in Manitoba.

"They looked just like two normal girls. They look a little Hollywood, but if we didn't know who they were, I don't know if I would have known," said Kirsten. "We said 'Hey, you know. Come on and meet your guests and, you know, don't segregate yourselves. Come and party."
Amy Schumer

According to E! News, Schumer was in London for a meeting with designer Stella McCartney when she saw a couple taking wedding photos. Jasmin Pereira and Jon Bates had just tied the knot at the Mayfair Library. Schumer couldn't resist jumping in and goofing around with them.

"Amy was just lovely," Jasmin told E! News. "She got out of her car and asked for a pic with us. She congratulated us and she let us take some photos by her car!"

"After we had finished taking photos, she offered us a lift to our reception, as we were hailing a cab," she continued. "She said, 'Go take it for a spin!' We declined, but appreciated the offer. All the guests were really impressed and thought it was hilarious. Weddings can be a boring, stuffy affair but Amy added a bit of excitement and a laugh."

This wasn't the first time Schumer has photobombed some lovebirds: In 2015, she crashed an engagement shoot in Central Park.
Lady Gaga

William and Georgina's Gramercy Park Hotel wedding in NYC already had pretty much everything you'd ever want: daisies, breast-feeding, yoga, meaningful readings. But then, Lady Gaga showed up to their after party, capping off an already memorable day. After their reception, they retired to the Rose Bar, which is downstairs in the hotel. That's when none other than Gaga popped in to sing with trumpet player Brian Newman, the couple told Offbeat Bride.

Chris Hemsworth

When Thor crashes your wedding...

This couple's wedding was pretty much #goals already. But then, Chris Hemsworth walked into their photos and took it to the next level. According to Brides, Anneka and Kent from Perth, Australia, were married on Friday, March 3, in Byron Bay. It just so happens that the actor was surfing there with his wife and three kids. The newlyweds were taking photos on the picturesque beach when the best man noticed Hemsworth, who had been staying nearby to film Thor: Ragnarok.

"It was Chris Hemsworth on the beach, and [the best man] was like, 'Hey, do you think you could get a photo with the bride and groom?' And he said, 'No worries,'" Anneka told news.com.au. Hilariously, the bride didn't even recognize Hemsworth right away. "I was wondering why we were getting a photo with a random person? I was saying, 'Who is this person?'" she said. "[Kent] was getting embarrassed that I kept asking who this person was and he said, 'Chris Hemsworth.'"

Taylor Swift

If you grew up listening to Taylor Swift’s love songs, then having her show up at your wedding unexpectedly would pretty much be a dream. That's exactly what happened to one New Jersey couple at their June 2016 nuptials. According to Brides, it wasn't entirely a happy accident; Taylor agreed to drop by after learning (via the groom's sister) that the couple were huge fans of her music, and they had recently gone through a very difficult time in their lives. She posed for photos, played a few hits, and made sure it was truly an affair to remember.

Beyoncé

What better way to ask your bridal party to “get in formation” than having Queen Bey there to back you up? While vacationing with Jay Z in Portofino, Italy, a bikini-clad Beyoncé apparently wandered into an old church, only to find that a wedding was being held inside. While Bey didn't dazzle guests by breaking out into a dance routine, she did take some lovely snaps with the bride.

Snoop Dogg

In September 2014, one Chicago couple was taking wedding photos in their hotel lobby when they ran into none other than Snoop Dogg (Lion?) and his entourage. The groom’s mother reportedly convinced Snoop to pose for a photo, which he later posted on Instagram — and which, we can only assume, is framed in the couple’s house.

Justin Timberlake

Imagine having JT show up at your wedding? It’s probably one of those moments where you have an internal debate over whether you should just smile and hug him hello, or go in for the kiss and potentially anger your soon-to-be spouse. Either way, it happened just last summer to a bride and groom in upstate New Hampshire, who calmly posed for a photo with with the "Sexy Back" singer, before continuing on with their special day.

Serena Williams

One bonus of getting married in a city like Miami is that you never know which stars might be eating at the restaurant next door, or laying on the beach just steps from your ceremony. Back in 2014, this couple’s friends spotted Serena Williams on the beach next to the venue, and — as good friends do — asked if she’d pose for a pic. She said yes, ran over (in her leopard print one-piece swimsuit), and they all lived happily ever after.

Bradley Cooper

Is there anything more delightfully meta than having your wedding crashed by one of the stars of Wedding Crashers? Decidedly not. That's what happened when Bradley Cooper bumped into this couple mid-wedding photo shoot at the Georgetown University campus (Cooper's alma mater, and also the groom's). Luckily, for all parties, real Bradley Cooper seems to be much cooler than the jerk he played in the movie.
