Hold on. This is a blog about a wild wedding that involves a professional athlete, a bride that got punched, a castle and lots of property damage.
Hopefully, I got your attention in the opening sentence. Plus, I even left out the lobster throwing.
Professional soccer player, Dannie Guthrie, rented one of Britain’s stately Castles that was once owned by the brother of King George IV. It promised to be a wedding reception to be remembered. And it was.
The first hint of trouble began at the wedding breakfast. There, a Lobster Thermidor food fight took place. That’s an unplanned Lobster toss event.
Then, violence spilled out onto the grounds of the Castle. That’s when the bride was punched. The venue staff managed to lock the castle after calm had been restored but the guests began kicking the doors down to gain re-entry. The police were called.
The Allerton Castle spokesman said that the event was “more Big Fat Gypsy Wedding than our usual clientele”. He went to add, “There were people staggering around drunk and sleeping on tables… behaving like peasants with money”.
So far, no one has stepped forward to pay for the damage. “We have not had as much as a phone call or letter of apology for this disgraceful and upsetting behavior. Thankfully, they were well away from the Castle itself”.
All of us will probably receive a few invitations to weddings this summer. I remember Norm Crosby joking that his high school was so tough “that the school newspaper had an obituary section”. I’m not sure that there will be many tougher wedding receptions than this one!
For pic o’ day, I thought we should head to some relaxing stretching and thinking… well something like that:
