(Scroll down for video) A fun-loving groom thought it would be exciting to have his wife kidnapped during their wedding.

While fear has been a common response to the recent terror attacks of Islamic State, one Egyptian groom chose to laugh in the face of adversity.

25-year-old medical graduate Ahmed Shehata decided that his own wedding was the best forum to do so.

Shehata arranged for relatives to dress like ISIS militants and “kidnap” him and his bride during their wedding.

The men entered the wedding hall to the soundtrack of the infamous ISIS anthem armed with guns and with a cage that looked like the one which was used to burn a Jordanian pilot alive.

The couple was placed inside the cage. The panic soon turned into laughter after the music changed to a dance track and the groom began dancing with the bride.

One of the men removed his ski mask and revealed his identity as the brother of the bride.

The bride saw the humor in the entire incident. The 23-year-old bride Shaimaa Deif said: “To ISIS, the message is that ‘the cage you’re scaring us with, we are dancing inside it.’”
