Sarah Jessica Parker Surprise Bride at Wedding
Sun 06-07-2014

A bride from Limavady was left stunned when her favourite Hollywood actress turned up at her wedding reception in County Donegal.

Máire O'Flynn, and her new husband Peter, were celebrating at the Lough Eske Castle Hotel, when Sarah Jessica Parker turned up at the hotel for a meal with her husband, Matthew Broderick, and some friends.

The star took the time to pose for a photograph with the lucky bride and complimented her on how well she looked, before wishing her all the best for the future.

"I was very hesitant to approach her because I didn't want to disturb her on her holiday and at a private dinner," the bride said.

"But a few of the other guests thought it would be a missed opportunity if I didn't get a photo on my big day with such an iconic celebrity."

"My brother Sean went in and asked would it be okay and she said no problem, we'll just finish our coffee and conversation and, once we're ready to leave, we'll come and get you."

"She sent some of the staff to get me from the dance floor just as she was leaving, and I went out and got a lovely picture with her and she was very kind."

"She said that I looked beautiful and hoped that I was having a great day."

"She also mentioned that my bridesmaid looked fabulous, which was great."

Máire added: "It was a nice addition to the day and added a bit of celebrity status to the occasion."
