Newlyweds spend weeks and months meticulously planning their big day.
But this hilarious video proves that there is always room for things to go wrong.
A fun-loving best man and maid of honour were filmed falling flat on their faces as they tried to perform an acrobatic entrance to their friends’ wedding reception.
The maid of honour hitched up her floor length gown and tried jump on to the best man’s back to be carried into the wedding. But instead she ended up tumbling over his head on to the damp garden path, bringing the best man down with her.
However the pair did not let the mishap ruin the fun and were back on their feet within seconds – much to the delight of the gathered guests.
The video was filmed by Colorado-based company Canvas and Light in a beautiful outdoor garden.
The clip starts with the pair walking down a path towards the guests and reception venue.
It is clear the pair have something planned when the best man jogs ahead and turns to face the maid of honour and crouches down, as if to catch her in a dancer’s lift.
