Top Gear crashes wedding in Edinburgh: Click above to watch the videos after the jump

We're reasonably sure that most people would rather their wedding remain limited to invited guests only, but at least some of us would probably make the exception if one (or more) of our favorite celebrities crashed our nuptuals.

In this case, Jeremy Clarkson and James May evidently interrupted the wedding of Mark and Angela McCole at the Church of the Sacred Heart in late April after the filming of a Top Gear race between Edinburgh and London. The television triumvirate's third leg, Richard Hammond, apparently couldn't make the scene, as his 1957 Vincent motorcycle gave up the ghost while Clarkson and May made it to the finish line aboard a steam engine and a 1940s Jaguar, respectively.

Predictably, perhaps, Jezza wasn't even dressed for the occasion. He arrived on the scene in an engineer's blue boiler suit, his face covered in soot. Presumably, May was in better form.

In either case, the Edinburgh Evening News has the gory details, and we've found YouTube clips of both the wedding post-crash and the shakycam footage of a Waverly train station bystander as Clarkson arrives. Both are posted after the jump.

      Clarkson, May and Hammond can crash my wedding any day.
      Those guys are hilarious.

      LOL, slightly off topic but I find British people so funny, in a good way.

        Too bad their government isn't that way too, or I'd move there.

      i kept looking for jezza in the picture and thought maybe he wasn't in it, when i read the rest of the article and realized he was the "black dude" standing next to the groom.

      funny how the British company wanted either a non-white person or gay person on the show so Jeremy is black. Haha!
        • 5 Years Ago

      Brits have the worst sense of humor, anyone who finds this funny is a boring person
        • 5 Years Ago
        wow Chris... that is amazing that you don't know a first thing about me and what kind of sense of humor I like yet you are so certain about who I am and what I like! Amazing! Further more you proving to me that brits sense of humor is terrible. Listening to to a British person trying to crack a joke would be similar to asking engineer why they used a certain compound in alloy and expecting a short word answer like it makes things lighter and stronger but instead they will start off with things like mendelevium table and how metals react with each other and pull out calculator and graphs and start drawing stuff on paper and show formulas. That's how British humor is, unnecessary long annoying and frustrating to listen to. Now if you into that type of stuff then by all means enjoy it but don't try to prove to everyone else that its the best humor out there and certainly don't compare it to others you stereotype.

        ...right.

        Brits have an outstanding sense of irony, timing and cheekiness. If you need ham-fisted gross gags, potty humor and underwear jokes then stick with Jack Black and Will Ferrel. Anyone who cannot appreciate the verbal, visual and situational humor of Top Gear at least a little bit has no credence in saying what is and is not funny.
