This is the hilarious moment a best man was knocked off his chair when an OWL attacked him during a wedding ceremony.
The barn owl was acting as ring-bearer at Jeni Arrowsmith and Mark Wood's wedding in Cheshire last Saturday when it suddenly went for the best man who is apparently "petrified of anything that flies."
Footage shows the victim - who hasn't been named - diving towards one of his pals at Peckforton Castle, in Tarporley, as he tries to escape his winged attacker.
Friends and family of the couple gasped in delight as the bird glided down the aisle with the rings in a pouch attached to a leg.
But mayhem followed seconds later as the owl took an apparent dislike to the second best man and launched itself at him.
