When James Roadnight saw Keanu Reeves hanging out in the bar of the Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa, he thought it would be a good idea to invite him to his wedding reception with bride Nikki.
Surely, he never imagined Reeves would actually make an appearance, but there's definitely no harm in trying, is there? Of course, the Matrix actor being his kind soul actually showed up to the wedding and made it a special affair for James, Nikki, and her five-year-old daughter.
"My husband saw him in the bar area and told him he'd just got married and invited Keanu to come over to say hello and have a drink with us if he wanted to," Nikki told Newsweek. "He was very friendly and said he would later on. We didn't know if he would or not but it was cool that my husband had spoken to him!"
Barely an hour later, as the newlyweds were enjoying the party, a hotel staff member told them that a “very special guest” was waiting for them. When she went to see who it was, she was shocked to see that the John Wick star had actually kept his promise.

“It was all very exciting,” the bride raved. “I went to say hi and introduce myself, and I offered him a drink but he declined that and said he’d just had a long flight so wouldn’t stay long but he was so kind and friendly and congratulated us on our wedding.”
"He was kind enough to do some pictures and our wedding photographer was able to capture some too! Then he took the time to speak to some of our guests and have more photos done!"
Nikki then said how she, her husband, and her as her guests, were left "a bit starstruck" by the appearance, but it was definitely something for all of them to talk about. "My mum, Jo, took photos and shouted for everyone to yell 'Speed' as she took the photo. We laughed about that as it's one of his older films! We are big fans. I absolutely loved The Matrix movies and really big fans of the John Wick films too! It was so cool!"
Honestly, Reeves dropping by was the highlight of their wedding.

"The wedding was absolutely perfect anyway and we had the most magical day," the bride said. "Keanu Reeves dropping by to say hello was just out of this world. Something to remember and the start of many more adventures together."
It is also another example that Reeves is just one of the kindest people on earth.
