Groomsman pushes bride away, spear tackles groom into pool during the first dance

A bride and groom were enjoying their romantic first dance together before a drunk groomsman shoved the bride and spear tackled the groom into a Thailand pool.

The first dance is the meant to be the most sentimental part of a reception, but for this Newcastle bride her romantic moment was bombarded by a groomsman who had a few too many.

Videographer, Ben Reed, was filming the beautiful moment between the newlyweds on his GoPro when he told Cheyne Batterham, otherwise known as "Horrie", to push the groom into the pool.

"One of the boys had a GoPro and said it would be a good idea to tackle Toby into the water," Horrie told Yahoo7.

Horrie can be seen coming in from the right hand side and shoves the bride out of the way.

He picks the groom up by the waist and runs straight toward the edge of the pool and nose dives straight into the water.

Shrieks are heard in the background as the two men go flying through the air and crash into the pool.

The force creates a wave that splashes all over the band's electrical equipment.

The music continues to play and people cheer as the two men gather themselves.

Horrie told Yahoo7 that he "doesn't remember getting into the pool" and within 30 seconds a large crowd of people jumped into the pool, wedding attire and all.

"Probably 20 or so people jumped in with us and we ended up staying in there for hours and had a few more drinks," he said.

"I definitely had pruney fingers."

When Horrie looked back on the footage he realised he had left Louise standing on the dance floor alone and said he felt terrible about that.

"Louise was one of the coolest brides, she is definitely no bridezilla," Horrie said.

In a very Aussie moment, Horrie told Yahoo7 that his fiance went and got him some footy shorts and they continued to party on through the night.

Earlier this week there was another drunk groomsman who ruined a bride's special day.

Rather than take the traditional route, newlyweds Michael Buchanan and his partner Jason Gilbert decided to shake things up by arriving on unicorn jet skis.
