Top 10 Times Celebs Crashed Weddings

Wedding gifts don’t get much better than this. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Times Celebs Crashed Weddings.

For this list, we’re taking a look at the coolest celebrity wedding crashers of all time. However, we’re including celebs who were invited without the knowledge of the bride and groom.

#10: Tom Hanks

Be honest, if you could have any celebrity photobomb your wedding photos, Tom Hanks would be right at the top of the list. The Hollywood nice guy serendipitously interrupted a couple by the name of Elizabeth and Ryan while they were taking their wedding photos in New York City’s Central Park. Hanks, who noticed the couple while jogging, stopped to congratulate them, before graciously posing for a few pictures. The two-time Oscar winner even posted a selfie of the three of them to his twitter account. Talk about the ultimate wedding gift!

#9: Barack Obama

Wedding crashers don’t get much more high profile than this! In 2015, Stephanie and Brian Tobe were getting married at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, California, when they noticed something peculiar: The President of the United States. Then-President Barack Obama just so happened to be finishing up a round of golf when he was spotted by the soon-to-be married couple. While the Tobes were fine just watching from afar, wedding photographers Jeff and Erin Youngren sensed an opportunity for some truly unique photos and urged the couple to get a little closer. Obama was more than happy to pose for a few pictures with the couple, who were no doubt having an out-of-body experience. We know we are just looking at these pics!

#8: Jennifer Hudson

With an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and a couple of Grammys under her belt, it’s wholly apparent that singer and actress Jennifer Hudson can do it all. Well, in 2015 she added another, somewhat surprising accolade to her resume: wedding crasher. Working with the Turn It Up For Change Program, Hudson, who’s long been a staunch supporter of the LGBTQ+ community, teamed up with The W Hotel to give Chris and Scott Lindsey a day they would never forget. The wedding, which came just months after the landmark Obergefell v Hodges case. Hodges ruling made same-sex marriage legal across the entire United States, featured a surprise performance from Hudson, who sang “I Still Love You”, off of her third studio album, “JHUD.”

#7: Snoop Dogg

Imagine walking out of your hotel on your wedding day, only to see Snoop D-O-Double-G stepping out of a limousine. Well, that’s exactly what happened to Chicago couple Joseph and Neesha Ghadiali back in 2014. Oddly enough, it was the mother of the groom who insisted they pose for pics with the rapper. While they were initially a little hesitant to get close to him, they eventually calmed down enough to snap a few pics. The mother of the groom later said, “Snoop was a blast to be around" and that the happy couple and the legendary rapper “had a great conversation and a ton of laughs inside the bar." Snoop later posted a pic of the three of them to his Instagram account.

#6: Taylor Swift

Are you still considered a wedding crasher if you were secretly invited by the groom’s sister? In 2016, after months of planning, Taylor Swift surprised Max and Kenya Smith at their wedding, performing Max’s favorite song, “Blank Space.” When the song was over, Swift took time to pose for pictures with the couple, as well as numerous other wedding guests. The couple, who’d wed months earlier at the hospital of the groom’s mother (who passed away shortly afterwards), were huge Taylor Swift fans. So, in light of their loss, Max’s sister Ali wrote to the Grammy winner, asking her to come to the wedding, an invitation she gladly accepted. Hey, if it worked for the Singers, it could work for you too!

#5: Beyoncé & Jay-Z

Few weddings in the history of the human race would have been as awesome to attend as Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s. However, the next best thing would be to have them crash your wedding. That’s exactly what happened to one lucky couple back in 2014, when Queen B and Hova stumbled upon a wedding party while on vacation in Portofino, Italy. The story goes that the Bey and Jay were walking through town clad in bathing suits when they noticed a wedding taking place outside of a church. While Jay-Z didn’t pose for any pictures, it appears Beyoncé was more than happy to make the bride’s day, posing for a couple of candid pics.

#4: Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga’s The Monster Ball Tour lasted two years and took her all over the world. That included a 2010 stop in the Australian city of Adelaide. While there she stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel, which just so happened to be where Aussie couple Courtney and Reece Kerr were tying the knot. The singer walked right into the ballroom and before you could say “poker face” she was posing for pictures and buying the entire wedding a drink! Before she left Gaga apparently told the couple to “have good sex!” Due to her reputation, we’re not exactly surprised that Lady Gaga left the couple with that sage piece of advice.

#3: Ed Sheeran

After falling on hard times, an Australian couple were planning on postponing their wedding. However, when local radio personalities Kyle & Jackie O, of “The Kyle and Jackie O Show,” heard their story, they stepped in and surprised the couple by paying for the wedding. But that wasn’t all. On the day of the event, the celebrity benefactors showed up in person, bringing with them an even bigger surprise: Ed-freakin’-Sheeran! The pop superstar sang his hit song "Thinking Out Loud" before posing for pics with the star-struck couple. He later posted a picture to his Instagram with the caption: “Just surprised this lovely couples first dance. Available for weddings, birthdays and bar mitzvah’s, contact your local super market for details.”

#2: Katy Perry

No bride wants to be upstaged on their wedding day, but we have a feeling Hayley Rosenblum and her groom Blonie Dudney didn’t mind when Katy Perry popped in to say hello when they tied the knot back in 2017. Perry, who was taking a break from touring, happened to be staying at the same St. Louis hotel as the couple when she spontaneously decided to give them the surprise of a lifetime. Perry wasn’t content simply posing for pictures, hoping on the dancefloor and busting a move to Justin Timberlake’s “SexyBack.” Oddly enough, this isn’t the first time she’s crashed a wedding, having dropped in on a rehearsal in 2013 as well.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are some honorable mentions:

Serena Williams

Justin Timberlake

Conan O'Brien

Kristen Stewart

Bradley Cooper

#1: Queen Elizabeth II

Without a doubt the coolest wedding crasher in the history of wedding crashers, Queen Elizabeth II surprised Manchester couple John and Frances Canning in 2012 when she took time out of her (presumably) busy schedule to wish them luck at their wedding. The Canning’s knew that the Queen would be in their neck of the woods on the day of their wedding, so they decided to send her a letter asking if she’d like to attend. To everyone’s surprise, the Queen actually showed up! According to Frances, “She was beautiful, a really nice woman, and wished us all the best." As far as bucket list items go, getting The Queen to attend your wedding has got to be one of the hardest to cross off.
