Wedding guests and Church members in a church in Port Harcourt engaged in a verbal fight when the pastor refused to wed a couple right away because they arrived three minutes late to church.
Despite pleas, the pastor went to his office and refused to wed them at the appointed time.
He left the couple waiting for over an hour and said he will wed them at his own convenience inside his office, not in the church as expected.
As some point the bride breaks down in tears while the groom tries to console her outside the church building.
Those defending the pastor got into s face-off with those who were on the side of the heartbroken couple.
Sharing footage from the Fulfilling Word Foundation church, the wedding photographer wrote:
“Annoying events at the wedding I was covering today in PH
The couple came 5 minutes late and pastor left the church, kept us for 1 hour and said he’ll join them in his office after returning
Some pastors are feeling like God.”

The couple eventually got tired of waiting for the pastor and got another person to serve as their officiating pastor.
Since the exchange of vows could not hold in the initial pastor’s church, they did that at a hotel.
“Wedding done back at the hotel with a stand in pastor,” the photographer later gave an update.
