A groom of the United Kingdom, turned violent during his own wedding and beat two of the bride’s best friends.

27-year-old John Paul Campbell of Macclesfield, got into a fight his wife’s best friend, who was a bridesmaid.

Samantha Dewar, 26, who was also a bridesmaid, decided to intervene to stop the fight, a court heard.

However, Campbell did not like that she got involved and he punched her in the face. The powerful punch sent the bridesmaid to the ground.

Samantha suffered a fractured cheekbone and had to have a metal plate inserted to rebuild her cheek. She also suffered a black eye.

Prosecutor Debbie Byrne said that this was an unprovoked attack that left a serious injury.

Campbell pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm when he appeared before the Magistrates Court.

Dewar, a mother of two children, said that she has been friends with the bride since they attended the Tytherington High School.

The two have been very close friends. “We’ve been best friends since school and I helped her get ready for the wedding,” Dewar said.

Sadly, this incident has now broken their friendship and they have not spoke to each other since the wedding.
