A groom who tried to spin his new wife around during their first dance , ended up crash landing with her onto a stage in an embarrassing heap.
Lawrence Satow was celebrating tying the knot with girlfriend of seven years Victoria when he scooped her up in his arms at their reception on Saturday.
With Macklemore’s Can’t Hold Us playing, the over-enthusiastic groom began twirling Victoria around the dance floor.
But the manoeuvre didn’t go to plan as he span his bride round and round until he completely lost control.
A video clip shows the couple crashing into a huge speaker before landing on top of each other on the stage.
The disastrous first dance has since gone viral with more than 30,000 people viewing and sharing it.
The red-faced newlyweds flew out on their honeymoon to Mykonos, Greece, on Sunday after the wedding at St Lawrence’s Church in Brookside, Hereford.
Lawrence, 30, of Drewsteignton, near Exeter, said: “I think the video speaks for itself, the whole thing was fairly brutal.
“It wouldn’t be an over exaggeration to say that it was one of the most humiliating moments of my life so far.
“The routine was completely off-the-cuff, we hadn’t planned it at all and were just going to go with the flow.
“Victoria chose the song, and it’s not one that I’m massively familiar with, so initially I didn’t feel too confident about it.
“But as it went on, I started to feel as though we were getting the hang of it.
“The watchers-on were cheering, and I thought I might as well try something a bit ambitious – it was our first dance, after all.
“I know that Victoria isn’t at all heavy, so I decided to lift her off the ground and spin her round, like they do in Strictly Come Dancing.
“But the floor was slippery, I think some beer or maybe some limoncello had been spilled, and I was obviously wearing uncomfortable shoes.
