The right course of action is the same as for musicians - work away as best you can. If it looks like they're going to fall over your gear, move the most expensive stuff first! Wink

I was a child at a Sicilian wedding (could be any nationality but this was Sicilian) when a brawl between the happy couple's respective families broke out, all I can remember, being very small at the time, was being pushed under a table out of the way. By the way most of the guests, and for sure the photographer - scarpered.

There's a good reason why the two families traditionally sit on opposite sides in the Church.

I was at a wedding years ago although not to take pictures officially, I just took a few 'snaps' for keeps sake. during the pro photo session after coming out of the church it all kicked off between the fathers of the bride and groom. I kept well clear but I could not help laughing. In the end the Vicar had to separate them and he got blood all down his white gown from a bleeding nose.
You wouldn't have seen better in a 'Carry on film'.
Why do these occasions start a ruchus between families.

The biggest fight I have ever seen was at a wedding - just because the bride was caught out the back getting a bunk up from the best man.
I never did find out if they were upset at the grass stains on the dress or him proving he was the best man

There was a news story a couple of years back in Greenock where the BnG decided it would be a hoot if the groom sat on the bride's knee for a photo. Unfortunately his kilt rode up at the back and he deposited a skidmark on her big fat gypsy wedding dress. She decked him, his mum decked her and it all kicked off until the police huckled a few to the chokey...

A similar story was well reported in the press under the wonderful headline "ochaye the poo". I noticed that the reception was in a Temperance Hall: not a venue where we'd expect folk tend to get drunk.

I'm well connected with local Greenock police and I can assure you this never happened. They have no record of it and the local newspaper even asked them for details of the incident and they were given the same reply.

I was punched in the mouth by MOB after I referred to Dad's partner as "Mum". She did it in front of 100+ guests and gave me a grovelling apology at the start of the speeches after I threatened to get her arrested. We now have a specific reference to this in our terms and conditions!

She also paid the dental bill...
