    “Now that’s a Hollywood romance! Couple shock friends by inviting them to the cinema… and then getting MARRIED in front of the big screen” From Birmingham, UK.

    A romantic couple stunned their friends and family by inviting them to a made-up movie premiere at a cinema – which turned out to be their wedding day.

    Darren Yates, 40, told 100 of their guests that he had a cameo role in a Hollywood blockbuster called Match Made In Heaven, only for the attendees to arrive at the cinema to find it was the couple’s wedding ceremony.

    The groom and his fiancee Katherine Yates, 34, were so determined to fool their friends and family they even designed fake posters and a voiceover trailer for the fictional film and posted VIP tickets for the screening.
