5. The wedding guest who shot himself playing Russian roulette during the reception

The wedding guest who shot himself playing Russian roulette during the reception
In 2010, a Russian wedding ended in tragedy after a game of Russian roulette went wrong, leaving one guest with a life-threatening gunshot wound to his head. A home video of the wedding in Astrakhan, southern Russia, shows a grinning friend of the groom unexpectedly pulling a pistol from his waistband, putting it to his temple and squeezing the trigger. The gun emits only a clicking sound and the smiling gunman asks who else wants to try his luck.

Another guest is shown taking up the offer, but this time the trick goes wrong. The second man pulls the trigger and immediately collapses to the floor as the gun releases a rubber bullet into his skull at point-blank range. He was reported to be fighting for his life.
The gunman, a 33 year-old Chechen man, insists he was sure that he had emptied the pistol’s chamber of every bullet and says he only wanted to enliven the wedding. But local police do not believe him and have opened a criminal investigation into the tragic incident.
4. The wedding reception in which the deck collapsed dumping the couple and 80 guests into a muddy lake

Wedding couple Hoffman and Marli van der Walt along with 80 guests were dumped into a muddy lake as a wooden deck on which they were standing collapsed.
Shocked bystanders dived in to help as the guests – including the bride’s wheelchair-bound mother, 88-year-old grandmother and a baby – thrashed about in the water. But only one person was slightly hurt in the incident at the Dragon Peaks mountain resort, in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province.
Despite the dunking, Hoffman, 38, and Marli, 34, were determined their big day would not be a complete washout. Once everyone was back on dry land, the Durban couple asked the photographer to continue with the photo session, then tucked into their wedding dinner as planned.
3. The bride who was arrested after baring breasts at own wedding

Your wedding is meant to be the happiest day of your life, but one lesbian bride was arrested after baring her own breasts during the ceremony. Sharon Hancox spent her first night of married life behind bars after baring her breasts at a bouncer and attacking him with a stiletto heel.
The 40-year-old wed Nicola Hutin before drinking eight pints of lager at the reception and arguing with doorman David Jenkins. He had broken up a fight between Hutin, also 40, and an inebriated woman – and then asked the wedding party to leave the Champers bar in Swansea.
Hancox confronted the doorman, calling him a pervert and claiming he had attacked her once before. She then pulled the top of her red dress down, exposing her breasts.
Hutin lunged at the bouncer before Hancox swung her red stiletto shoe at him. Hancox, of Swansea, admitted common assault and was handed a 12-month community order with 60 hours’ unpaid work. She was also told to pay £100 compensation and £150 costs.
2. The registrar who refused to continue with the ceremony because the bride made a joke.

A bride who jokingly replied ‘I don’t’ during her wedding found that her joke backfired slightly – as the registrar then refused to go ahead with the ceremony. As a result, the entire wedding had to be cancelled, and the guests sent home.
Tina Albrecht, 27, was to marry fiancé Dietmar Koch, 29, at a castle in Steyr, Upper Austria. But the wedding had to be called off after Albrecht, a receptionist, tried to bring a bit of humour into the ceremony by saying ‘I don’t', before immediately correcting herself. Under an Austrian law intended to prevent forced marriages if either party replies to the key question in the negative the wedding is cancelled and cannot be rescheduled for a further 10 weeks.
Ms Albrecht said: ‘We had to send all our guests home and now we have to wait until March before we can try again’.
1. The Best Man who robbed the DJ at the wedding reception

Cops hear a lot of crazy stories, but this one may take the cake – or at least the wedding cake.
Houston police have been trying to track down a wedding party member who allegedly pulled a gun at the reception and started shooting. It happened back in 2009, after Nadia Clay and Terrance Simmons tied the knot. Everything went off without a hitch, until the best man decided to rob the DJ. “He steps back, takes it [the gun] and then shoots it in the air,” said Kendrick Shepherd, the wedding DJ. “And then comes and pushes me, grabs it and runs out the door and I’m like, did that just happen?”
The suspect grabbed an expensive crystal decanter full of liquor and fled. Even after two months later, police wasn’t able to find the gun-toting best man. They have wedding photos of the suspect whose name, according to the newlyweds, is Johnny Smith. But the groom told investigators he barely knows the guy. He said he was a last-minute replacement for his cousin, who backed out.
