Not sure if I'm tempting the fates, BUT thankful this has never happened before, during, or after one of my weddings ... at least, not that I'm aware of.....


Man Cuts Off Testicles, Delays Wedding

A couple's wedding was delayed after a man allegedly cut off his testicles before storming into a church just an hour before the ceremony was to take place.
The Brentwood, U.K. man was taken to a hospital Saturday shortly after his self-mutilation, according to News.com.au. As a vicar and florist put finishing touches to the church, the unnamed man stormed in, throwing chairs around as he soaked the floor in his blood.
A wedding guest who arrived early told the Brentwood Weekly News that the vicar would not let him enter the church because a man had cut off his testicles with a pair of scissors.
“When I went in the church, I saw something on the floor which I could only describe as flesh, which I thought was part of his arm but that was one of his testicles," the wedding guest said.
After being taken to a hospital, police referred the man to a mental health assessment, according to the Brentwood Gazette.
Despite Essex Police wishing to close the church to further investigate the incident, the wedding went along a half hour later. The bride was not informed what caused the delay until after the wedding.
