Jeni Arrowsmith and Mark Wood from Cheshire County in North West England decided to make their wedding ceremony a bit different from usual. The couple hired an owl to be their ring-bearer.
Despite being trained to deliver the rings to the best man in a brief flight from the back of the hall, the owl probably remembered its natural instinct and decided to hunt. When one of the groom’s best men seated in the front row pointed at the bird, it immediately attacked the man causing him to fall from his chair.
Most of the guests just had fun with the incident and photographer Stacey Oliver managed to capture the moment perfectly and the hilarious photo has gone viral around the world.
