Bride Sarah Lenihan and husband Tom didn’t mind one bit when two unexpected guests turned up at their wedding in the Culloden Hotel, Cultra, County Down at the weekend.

The couple were celebrating their wedding on Saturday in this luxury five-star wedding venue when guests spotted two celebrity wedding crashers.

Twilight’s Robert Pattinson and lead singer of The Script, Danny O’Donoghue, were both staying at the hotel and crossed paths with the wedding party.

Danny was in town ahead of The Scripts performance at Tennents Vital on Sunday evening and R-Patz has been a regular visitor to the area where he is filming his latest movie The Lost City of Z.

Wedding guest Jamie Reid, from East Belfast, told Belfast Live:

“We went to our friends’ wedding on Saturday and we were down at the reception of the Culloden when we came in the main entrance and bumped into Danny from The Script.

“He was a really nice guy and went out and got pictures with everyone. He was really sound and down to earth and spent a lot of time with everyone. The rest of his band and crew were there but kept to themselves.

“Then later on in the night someone said we had to move everyone from the room and go to the bar for a while and Robert Pattinson was sitting having a pint.

“I plucked up the courage and went over and said he was going to get mobbed by about 20 girls, he is such a quiet guy and he was a bit taken back by it, all these girls.

“In fairness he sat and got his pictures taken until the Culloden staff came and moved him on.”
