>> trending on youtube, this is about god. what am i talking about? that's how the priest explained his angry outburst at a wedding. he was in the middle of fish ya ceremony when the photographer got too close.

>> please, move. please, sirs, leave.

>> where?

>> anywhere other than here.

>> okay.

>> this is a solem assembly not a photography session. please move or i will stop. i will stop the ceremony if you do not get out of the way. this is not about the photography. this is about god.

>> so you see the couple, they even start to look uncomfortable staring at one another. the priest later says he didn't want them to be distracted by the camera. but the photographer said he was doing his job. but as a kid that went to catholic school , nothing sends shivers.

>> when he said i'll stop this ceremony right now reminds me of my mom saying i'll stop this car right now.

>> he wrote a book about it actually.

>> it's a little awkward for the couple i agree.
