Drama ensued during the wedding of a couple at Port Harcourt in Nigeria after the pastor who was to officiate the marriage ceremony refused to do so.
In a report posted along with the footage that was sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Instagram handle of Nigeriacamera, everything appeared to be out of control.
All attempts were being made by the couple and guests to get the event back in session, but the church officials would have none of that, simply because the couple reportedly arrived five minutes late.
See the footage below:
Reports have it that the pastor left the couple waiting for one hour and said he will wed them at his own convenience inside his office, not in the church as expected.
At some point, it is indicated that the bride broke down in tears while the groom tried to console her outside the church building with no success.
Finally, the official photographer of the event gave an update that the couple got another person to serve as their officiating priest in a hotel.
In an earlier report by YEN.com.gh, a handsome man with the Twitter handle @obiiora has shown that his love never died with the fading nature many people associate with Valentine's Day.
His post was in response to a tweet asking people if they are still with the person they went out with last year or they did the right thing.
In the photos he shared, the man's date could be seen smiling at him. The second frame is a monochrome photo showing the woman in a white wedding gown.
