Brad Pitt, Wedding Crasher? Star Stops By A UK Wedding, Makes Bride's Day (PHOTO)

Wedding crashers are generally thought to be an annoyance. Unless, of course, that crasher is Brad Pitt.

On Friday, UK bride Abi Lingwood got a big Big Day surprise when her husband Daniel told her that he spotted the actor at the bar of the Stoke Park Hotel in Buckinghamshire, where they were holding their wedding reception.

"My husband said to me that Brad Pitt was at the bar and you have got to come with me so he dragged me across the hotel. I thought he was joking," she told the Maidenhead Advertiser.

Pitt was in town filming the World War II thriller "Fury" at the nearby Pinewood Studios and was at the hotel for a business meeting.

Lingwood told E! that she "actually gasped and said to [her]self, 'Oh my god, it really is you!'" when she finally met the actor.

"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," she said.

The bride also told E! that it isn't quite accurate to call Pitt a wedding crasher.

"The papers at home are saying that Brad crashed our wedding reception, but to be fair, we crashed their meeting!" she explained.
