Bridesmaid Surprises Bride With 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' Prank At Her Wedding Reception
It's supposed to be the happiest day of your life. Everything is meticulously planned, organised, and then re-organised.
Once the ceremony is out of the way - particularly the 'speak now or forever hold your peace' section - you could be forgiven for using your wedding reception as a chance to let your hair down a bit after all the stress.
That's what 29-year-old Stacey Owen from Aberdare was hoping for anyway.
After getting hitched to the love of her life, Keri, Stacey was just concluding her first dance at her wedding reception venue.
Then, a woman charged onto the floor wearing a wedding dress and screaming nonsense whilst hitting her new husband with a bunch of flowers.
Then, when the entire wedding - barring one bridesmaid - was in complete shock, the crazed 'lover' burst into song.
That's when Stacey realised what was going on.
Jackie, the bridesmaid in question, had booked local comedian January Rees to disrupt the ceremony.

Speaking to Wales Online, she explained her decision: "Stacey expected some sort of surprise and I just wanted to do something silly.
"I was searching for ideas online when I came across videos of drag queens going down the aisle which gave me this idea."
As for Stacey, she said: "I thought, 'what is going on', as we just done our first dance. At first, the lights were dim and I couldn't see her face so I thought it was one of his nutty exes.
"But when the lights came up, I could see Jan's face and I knew who she was then. My partner was terrified at first."
Luckily, everyone thought the whole thing was funny. Crucially, Stacey found it really funny, too.
That's the kind of joke that you can easily see going very wrong, very quickly.
However, the entire crowd loved it and the bride said that the comedian's "performance had everyone talking".
Well, yeah. That's obviously the plan.
She added: "The whole day was brilliant, my partner was hiding behind me, he just said 'I hope she doesn't terrorise me' as he'd seen her live before as a stand-up comedian."
To add a sense of realism to the whole thing, January even wore her own wedding dress to the ceremony.
That's arguably greater commitment than the married couple, there.
