When Thor shows up in the movies, it usually means there's about to be some major hammer smashing. But when Chris Hemsworth, the actor famous for playing the Norse god in the Marvel blockbusters, shows up to your wedding? Well, that just makes for some lovely, very special wedding photos.

One lucky couple recently experienced this situation firsthand. Anneka and Kent from Perth, Australia, were married on Friday in Byron Bay, where the Aussie actor just happened to be surfing with his wife, Elsa Pataky, and their kids, India Rose, Sasha, and Tristan. The newlyweds were taking advantage of their stunning locale to capture a few beachside wedding photos when the best man noticed Hemsworth nearby.

"It was Chris Hemsworth on the beach, and [the best man] was like, 'Hey, do you think you could get a photo with the bride and groom?' And he said, 'No worries,'" Anneka told

The only problem? The bride didn't recognize Hemsworth away from the red carpet and out of his superhero getup. "I was wondering why we were getting a photo with a random person? I was saying, 'Who is this person?'" she said. "[Kent] was getting embarrassed that I kept asking who this person was and he said, 'Chris Hemsworth.'"

Still, the whole thing made for a photo op to remember.

Hemsworth has been staying in the area for a while during the filming of Thor: Ragnarok, the latest installment of his superpowered franchise. And though Anneka and Kent have quite a few stunning photos to remember their special day by, the actor can now count the couple's wedding photos as yet another among his many starring roles.

"Our wedding photos will now be one of three people instead of one of two," Anneka said. "[Kent’s] favorite wedding photo is the one with Chris Hemsworth."
