A Serbian groom who dumped his bride at the altar to run off with his ex-girlfriend is now being sued by the bride's family.

The Daily Mirror reported that minutes before Veselin Lovric said “I do” he fled the church, leaving his bride-to-be on her own.

Lovric got cold feet about spending the rest of his life with new love Andjela Niklovic and decided he hadn't stopped loving ex-girlfriend Tina Cuckovic.

The devastated bride was left with her stunned family.

He ran to a neighbouring town and back into the arms Miss Cuckovic.

The Mirror quoted a guest saying the crowd was taken aback.

"The couple had already had lots of pictures taken together. All of their friends and family were sitting down in the church when suddenly he just left," the guest said.

“At first we didn’t know what was happening. We thought he was just nervous and had cold feet and was nipping for some fresh air."

According to the Mirror, Mr Lovric now wants to be a groom for a second time, this time with Miss Cuckovic by his side.

Miss Niklovic's family is suing Mr Lovric for £15,000 for cost of the wedding.
