J.K. Rowling made a Scottish couple’s wedding day much more paramount when she photobombed their wedding last month.
Photographer Matt Fothergill was shooting the Aug. 26 pre-marriage ceremony of Scratch and John at Edinburgh’s Prestonfield House when the combine got an unexpected visit from Rowling, who happened to go to another occasion at the scene that day.
As the couple advanced outside for the photograph shoot, they saw Rowling on the way to her auto ― and soon thereafter Fothergill says he “self-nominated” himself to go and approach her for a photo.
“She said truly, obviously, and after that when she saw the folks, she was so cool,” he told HuffPost. “She just walked straight up to them with the greatest grin and gave them both a major crush and wished them each wellbeing and happiness.”
The Harry Potter author’s appearance, he included, more than compensated for the day’s cloudy, stormy weather. While Fothergill and his subjects held it together amid the shoot, the trio started “fanboying uproariously and animatedly” very quickly in the wake of Rowling offer her farewell.
The coming about photographs have helped put Fothergill, who has been capturing weddings since 2012 with his company, Matt.E.Photography, on the universal guide, too. The pictures have since showed up in The Scotsman, Out magazine and Pink News, along with other media outlets.
“I’d wanted to have said we were super cool in regards to the entire thing, yet I’m almost certain she heard us screeching with delight,” he said. “She was in this way, so cool [and] extremely sweet and it’s something myself and my customers are going to treasure for our entire lives.”
“We’re all genuine Potterheads and have a gigantic regard for J.K. Rowling’s philanthropy and activism,” he proceeded, “so this was a genuinely epic, meet-your-saint moment.”
