Couple Marries Twice: Officiant Forgets To Include Vows In Wedding Ceremony

Posted: Updated:

Imagine going through all the most important parts of your wedding day -- such as walking down the aisle and exchanging rings -- but never saying "I do."

That was the case for British couple Kelly Sweetman and Nathan Rees, who went through all the motions of tying the knot at their beach wedding in Cyprus, except for one small detail: the officiant forgot to ask the bride to say her vows, reports the Daily Mail.

According to the British newspaper, the pair had to get married all over again since the officiant skipped the bride's vows and the ceremony wasn't legally binding.

"I thought it was very strange I hadn’t said my vows but I didn’t say anything. I did notice all my guests staring at each other looking very confused," Sweetman told the Daily Mail.

Despite the confusion, the pair went on to sign the official paperwork. But an hour later, the altar was re-decorated and the officiant returned to re-do the ceremony. Finally, Sweetman and Rees were married.

This slightly botched ceremony shows that even with lots of planning and careful consideration, things can still go wrong on a couple's Big Day.
