Minster Stops Wedding, Throws Photographers Out

This is one of the most awkward wedding videos we've ever seen. Mid-ceremony, as you hear what sound like several cameras click away, the officiant stops, turns to the cameras and says "Please, sirs. Leave."

While the bride and groom look on, horrified, the minister goes on to remind the photographers, "This is a solemn assembly. Not a photography session. Please move. Or I will stop. I will stop this ceremony if you do not get out of the way. This is not about the photography. This is about God."

Brides, be sure to coordinate carefully with your videographer and photographers. You really, really don't want this to happen at your wedding.

Do you think the minister was right to stop the ceremony? Watch (through your fingers—it's that bad) and decide for yourself.
