Owl Serving As Ring Bearer Attacks Best Man During Wedding (Video)

March 27, 2018

Here's a word to the wise:  Maybe don't have a bird of prey serve an important role in your wedding.

Jeni Arrowsmith and Mark Wood went ahead and decided to hire the barn owl to serve as their ring bearer during their lavish ceremony at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire last Saturday, and truthfully, all was going well.  The owl flew down the aisle with grace to deliver the rings, and stayed perched upon the arm of the first best man (their were multiple).  After a brief moment, the owl suddenly became enraged, and attacked one of the other best men!  He didn't suffer any injuries, and really it was absolutely hilarious.  We don't think any other moment could have possibly taken over as the best highlight of that wedding!  

The bride even got a huge chuckle out of the incident.  She called the attack "absolutely hilarious," telling The Guardian, "It was an amazing day for us both, and has given us great memories we will never forget."  The wedding photographer Stacy Oliver added "The best man’s reaction, when he fell off the seat and the crowd erupting into laughing was just great.  For some reason, the owl just decided he wanted to go for him and he was just terrified.  He’s absolutely petrified of anything that flies."
