It’s said that the only thing a groom needs to do on his wedding day is turn up on time and say the right name.
However, we can now add another requirement – dodge any helicopter-mounted cameras flying straight towards your face.
This unfortunate incident took place at a couple’s bridal shoot two days before their wedding, and left the groom with cuts on his cheek and the side of his head.
The photographer, who was using a GoPro camera mounted on a DJI Phantom quadcopter, wrote on YouTube: ‘I felt horrible. Luckily the bride and groom were able to laugh about it after and we continued the shoot. At the request of the bride and groom I put the video online.
‘Although it sucks that this happened. I have decided to own up to what I did, instead of try to hide it from the world.’
He went on to say: ‘I was still able to make a great video. This couple was so great to work with. Some of the nicest people I have ever met.’
