Harry Potter crashes a wedding

In case you hadn't noticed I'm curmudgeonly about new trends. I'm late to twitter, I don't understand Twilight, and I focus a lot of time on vintage celebrity weddings. So it shouldn't be a surprise to you that I'm only halfway through the second Harry Potter book that someone pressed into my hands after years and years (and years) of telling me that I have to read them. I watched the first movie too, so now Daniel Radcliffe and that gorgeous girl Emma Watson catch my eye when I'm reading celebrity gossip.

Daniel Radcliffe, the Harry Potter actor, is taking driving lessons in Dorset because the country lanes are quieter than his London home. The 20-year-old spent last weekend staying in Poole to brush up his driving skills away from the congested roads of the capital. He surprised guests by dropping in unexpectedly to a wedding at the Harbour Heights Hotel, where he was staying. The Harry Potter star even took to the dance floor with the bride and bridesmaids after he was spotted by young fans.

I now pronounce you muggle and wife.

Musician Stuart Darling, 24, who performed at the wedding, said: "He seemed very happy and comfortable having photos taken and signing autographs. He was a thoroughly nice chap. He said he was down from London taking some driving lessons where it was quieter, and seeing a friend. I presume he was on his own - I didn't see anyone with him. He was probably a bit lonely and came out to socialise. As you do at weddings they were dragging people up to dance and he was one of them."

Chelsea Collins, a guest at the wedding, said: "He danced with the bride and was there until 1.30am, joining in with everyone. He was so down to earth and friendly. He brought a bit of magic to the evening."

Very punny, Chelsea.
