NIGERIA -Moment as church members and wedding guests in a church in Port Harcourt engaged in a verbal fight when the pastor refused to wed a couple because they arrived 5 minutes late to church.
According to reports, the pastor went to his office and declined to wed them at the appointed time, despite pleas.
He left the couple waiting for one hour and allegedly said he will wed them at his own convenience inside his office, not in the church as expected.
As some point the bride who was overwhelmed by the situation burst into tears uncontrollably while the groom tries to console her outside the church building.
Those defending the pastor clashed with those who were on the side of the heartbroken couple.
Sharing footage from the Fulfilling Word Foundation church, the wedding photographer wrote:
âAnnoying events at the wedding I was covering today in PH
âThe couple came 5 minutes late and pastor left the church, kept us for 1 hour and said heâll join them in his office after returning
âSome pastors are feeling like God.â
Eventually, the couple got tired of waiting for the pastor and got another person to serve as their officiating pastor.
Since the exchange of vows couldnât hold in the initial pastorâs church, they did that in a hotel.
âWedding done back at the hotel with a stand in pastor,â the photographer later gave an update.
