The best man went on a drunken rampage at his brother’s wedding.
A drunken best man in Wales punched his brother’s bride after a heated exchange at the wedding.
Tomos Rhydian Wilson, 29, has been found guilty of five charges of assault and two of criminal damage at an Aberystwyth court.
Wilson hurled abuse at bride Erin Mason-George before attacking two of her sisters and her mother in the drunken row.
The best man also assaulted Erin and grabbed her by her wedding dress, pulling her down stairs, according to The Sun newspaper.
Wilson also took a swing at the manager at Lampeter’s Falcondale Hotel, on July 27th 2019.
He was ordered to pay compensation of £250 (€296) each to Erin and one of her sisters, as well as a further £100 (€118) to her mum and other sibling and the manager.
He was also made subject to a community order for 12-months, will also have to carry out 240 hours of unpaid work and pay £900 (€1068) costs.
The court heard Wilson flew into a rage when the family tried to get groom Steffan to go to bed because he was drunk.
He said his brother should never have married Erin and that he was “no longer a Wilson”.
Wilson tried throwing punches at the bride and then assaulted her mum, Linda, her younger sister Dion, and grabbed her other sister, Cally, by the neck, causing reddening.
District Judge Gwyn Jones said the “thoughts and bad memories of what should have been a happy event will be there for some time”.
But Wilson tried pinning the blame on Erin – claiming she had slapped and sworn at Steffan and shoved him.
Giving evidence, Harry Wilson – the second best man – had also told the court he saw Erin “slap” Steffan, and claimed he fell down the stairs.
