The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reports that guests called an ambulance at around midnight for the blushing bride, who was suffering from alcohol poisoning.
When paramedics arrived, they had to call for police backup because the crowd, still no doubt moved by the earlier declaration of true love, had become drunk and rowdy.
“Police said when they turned up some of the wedding party became aggressive and threw punches,” the ABC reported.
Six police units were ultimately required to bring the guests to order, with the groom and best man arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
The maid of honor was also reportedly interviewed by police, but not charged.
The Daily Mail reported the bride has since been released from hospital.
