As the star of DC Comics blockbuster Aquaman, Jason Momoa has had his work cut out for him as he’s taken on the responsibility of saving the world and claiming the throne of Atlantis.
Nevertheless, the underwater superhero still manages to find time in his hectic schedule to amuse his fans above the surface, as one newlywed couple were fortunate enough to experience in Hawaii.

On Thursday 20 December, Katie Meyers was being photographed with her new husband Brandon on a beach in Oahu following their wedding ritual when Momoa made a surprise appearance, trident in tow.
The actor, who was born in Hawaii, happened to have been on the island for the premiere of Aquaman, and unintentionally came across the couple taking part in a romantic sunset photo shoot. “It was totally unplanned and spontaneous!” Carina Cooper, wedding coordinator for Oahu Boutique Weddings, told E! News.
Momoa was accompanied by some of his friends and relatives at the time, all of whom promptly started congratulating Meyers and her husband on their wedding.
“We were taking our wedding photos after the ceremony out on the rocks and Jason Momoa and some of his family and some friends just all walked out on the beach,” she said. “They were shouting congratulations to us and they were super calm and super chill.”
As if the day couldn’t get any more memorable, the couple’s wedding photographer Eric Leslie-Mansperger then asked the Game of Thrones star if he would be game for joining in the photo shoot.
“He happily agreed to photobomb them! There just happened to be a kid on the beach nearby with that trident (in the pic) and Jason asked to borrow it,” wedding planner Cooper said. “So he took the trident and went behind the couple in their picture and pretended to be a sasquatch.”
Katie and Brandon Meyers had only 12 guests at their wedding at the Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, they revealed Hawaii News Now.
“I think we were just in disbelief,” the groom explained. “I mean, we didn’t expect for any of that to happen or know that he was here or anything like that, so it was just fun.”
Momoa later signed the trident that he’d borrowed when returning it to its owner on the beach.
“It was pretty cool to see him just be so nice and sweet and gracious,” said the bride. “He was really gracious, really down-to-earth and was more than happy to add something special to our day,” her husband added.
