"My husband said to me, 'Brad Pitt was at the bar and you have got to come with me,' so he dragged me across the hotel," the bride said. "I thought he was joking."
Pitt was in town shooting action film "Fury" and agreed to pose for a photo with the couple.
"And he said I looked nice," Abi Lingwood said. "He was really nice."
But once wedding guests got wind of the actor's presence, "the girls were going wild and mental, so Brad Pitt and the people he was with went upstairs to a room for their meeting," Lingwood said.
She said the star's appearance "has become more of a talking point than my wedding, but that is fine."
