Wedding delayed as man chops off testicles, storms church


There are a number of things that can sometimes hold up a wedding ceremony; the bride taking a little too long with her preparations, late arriving guests, or maybe a nervous groom showing up late to the ceremony. 

For one unfortunate British couple it was something beyond anyone's imagination.

According to a British paper, the couple's special day was delayed after a bleeding man who had just 'hacked' off his testicles stormed into the church.

The Brentwood Weekly News reports final preparations for the big day were being made inside All Saints Church in Essex, England when the disturbed man stormed in, leaving a large trail of blood as he picked up and threw chairs around. 

Witnesses to the bizarre incident say the man had apparently mutilated himself with a pair of scissors before entering the church. Emergency personnel took the man to the hospital for treatment and he has since been sent for a mental evaluation.

Despite the chaos and bloody scene, the wedding was able to go on just a half-hour late according to attendees. Whoever cleaned up the mess did quite a job according to a witness, "The bride didn't know anything about it, I'm sure she does now."
