A SYNCHRONISED dance at the beginning of a wedding reception has foreshadowed the hellish nightmare to come.
Carolyn Ryan, her new husband, plus the bridesmaids and groomsmen entered the room to the Black Eyed Peas’ I Gotta Feeling, as onlookers confirmed deep feelings of white hot loathing.
Best man Julian Cook said: “When they said we’d all be doing a dance the blood turned to ice in my veins. As we came into the venue I saw the horror in my soul reflected in the eyes of the guests. And that’s not even the worst part.”
Guests were seated next to people they had never met, to ‘stimulate conversation and start new friendships’. Instead of presents, the couple requested donations to a charity with guest encouraged to ‘give whatever their conscience asked of them’.
Cook said: “Also, instead of a band the bride’s sister performed a load of songs she’d written herself.
“One was called The Day I fell In love With My New Brother.”
