Priest punches groom’s brother during wedding ceremony
Reports on Sunday said the relatives of a couple who tied the knot in Tsada in Paphos on Saturday would be lodging a complaint with the Paphos bishopric after the officiating priest allegedly punched the groom’s brother in the face during the wedding ceremony. The incident was reported by Politis and CyBC news sites. According to the two articles, during part of the ceremony, one of the best men was pushed in a friendly way by the groom’s brother during the Isiah Dance in which the altar is circled three times as part of the ceremony. The reports said the priest became frustrated and enraged, put down his prayer book and hit the brother in the face, drawing blood.
