J.K. Rowling Delighted A Gay Couple By Posing For Their Wedding Photo Shoot
J.K. Rowling is proving yet again that she is a wonderful person along with being a wonderful writer.
The Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts writer was having lunch at the Prestonfield House in Edinburgh when someone called out to her.
Newlyweds Nick and John were taking photos outside of the house with photographer Matt Fothergill when they spotted Rowling just a few feet away.
As Fothergill told Pink News, he got up the courage to ask the writer if she would take some pictures with the couple.
“They rushed towards me and said in very hushed tones something like, ‘JK Rowling is right behind you,’” recalled Fothergill, “And then we joked about how cool it would be to have her in a wedding photo."
“I swallowed some serious nerves and ran up, fanboyed a smidge and asked as politely as I could if she wouldn’t mind posing for a quick picture with the boys as it was their wedding day.”
"She was just delightful from start to finish. She turned and smiled, strode over and gave them both the biggest hugs and wished them the greatest of health and happiness.
“It was such a wonderful surreal beautiful moment,” he added. “We laughed about it for about half an hour afterwards. Nick’s face in the pictures kind of gave away how starstruck we all were, I think. I actually squealed with delight when she was still within earshot.”
Fothergill also told Deadline News that the couple couldn’t help showing their surprise at it all.
He says the two were “Bleeping like Beaker from the Muppets,” and that they “nearly did passed out from squealing like bairns in pure excitement.”
We don’t blame them!
