An amusing video has emerged of a man destroying a bridal bouquet during a flower toss at a wedding in Brazil.
The video, captured at a reception in São Paulo in late January, shows the prankster using a baton to strike the airborne bouquet, stopping a bridesmaid from catching it.
The man then scarpers off, leaving the assembled wedding guests shocked and bemused.
Writing online about the stunt, the man wrote "In Brazil the bride has a tradition of throwing the bouquet of flowers after the wedding for single women. Superstition says that the girl who caught the bouquet will be the next to marry...and that was when I broke the bouquet".
