It's no secret we love a good celebrity photobomb, especially when it comes to wedding photos. After all, how many people do you know with an A-list Hollywood star in their wedding portraits? In the most recent edition of celebrities in weddings, we bring you Tom Hardy, dressed in full Bane regalia, waving to a group of cheerful bridesmaids.

That's right, the leader of the League of Shadows took some time out from filming The Dark Knight Rises in 2011 to appear in the background of a few wedding photos. The shot seen above, which was taken in Pittsburgh during the popular film's production, surfaced on Reddit yesterday as part of a #ThrowbackThursday thread. According to E! News, the shot was taken near Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute building — the site of several scenes from the third installment of the trilogy. Photographer Jared Wickerham proceeded to capture several great photos of the masked villain and bridal party.

According to Vulture, a Reddit-user who was there explains, "It basically caused a lot of inconvenience for [bride and groom] and their guests as there were explosions and gunfine on the street during their wedding." So to make up for the less-than-desirable vow interruption, the producers invited the couple to take photos with the famed camouflage Batmobile Tumbler! In the photo above, the couple is seen happily exploring the vehicle.

Whether or not the bridal party happened upon Hardy or if he came by their venue in a form of apology for the inconvenience remains unclear, but what we do know is the couple seemed to enjoy the experience in the end.

We have to say, of all the celebrity photobombs we've seen lately (including Jeff Goldblum, Bill Murray, and Zach Braff) this one is our new favorite! But we do wish Hardy would have dropped the mask for at least one photo. There's always next time!
