Brentwood, England – It is not uncommon for the planning of a wedding to cause a certain amount of stress. Many couples go to great lengths to anticipate a wide array of potential problems and to set up contingency plans in case of the unexpected. But a couple was caught flat footed on Saturday at All Saints Church, in Hutton Village Road, Hutton, when a man charged into the church having just lopped of his own testicles.
An hour prior to the “I do’s,” a blood soaked man stormed into the church. As a result, guest were greeted by police cars rather than ushers.
One guest described the scene: “There was blood all over the floor just outside the church. When I went in there it was like someone had been murdered. There was blood everywhere. The vicar knew of the man and said he had come into the church as they were setting up. He said the man had chopped his testicles off with a pair of scissors and was going bezerk, chucking chairs around. I’m surprised he didn’t pass out. 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 police apparently were hoping to close the church as it was a crime scene but love knows no bounds and the wedding went off 30 minutes later, after the man was taken to the hospital. The bride was not informed as to the events that occurred only moments before.
One witness said, “there was a bit of an atmosphere. The bride didn’t know anything about it, I’m sure she does now. But it took place. I’m surprised the vicar held it all together.”
The couple is registered at Bed Bath and Beyond and is hoping for the DeLonghi BCo320T Combination Steam Espresso Drip Coffee Cappuccino and Latte machine.
