The pastor and all 53 guests were also arrested after police busted the event.
A video doing the rounds on Twitter showed the groom helping his bride into a police van in her wedding gown shortly after the mass arrest.
The officers can be seen storming the ceremony with guns and face masks, after a member of the public allegedly gave them a tip off that the wedding was going ahead in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, where all public gatherings are banned – as they are for many parts of the world right now.
It’s reported the couple and their guests will all appear in court on Monday, April 13, however they are yet to be named.
A spokesperson said the couple would be ‘spending their honeymoon under stringent bail conditions,’ Metro reports.
