The wedding went bad for the happy couple because the Irapuato priest refused to admit the photographers that the bride and groom had hired to document their special day. The reason the priest gave left everyone speechless.

The priest was demanding that the couple pay a fee of 700 pesos, equivalent to just over $35 in order to allow the photographers inside the church. In fact, he said bluntly: «In the temple here I rule!»

The Mexican priest denied entry to the photographers that the bride and groom had hired and explained that those were the ‘regulations’ of the church since they already have «in-house» photographers who work for them.

«If you don’t want to, look, I’m leaving,» said the father when relatives complained. The painful scene was recorded in a video shared on social media by journalist Jorge Guzmán, who described the man as a «merchant in a cassock.»

The Mexican priest insisted that there were photographers who already have a license to work inside the church and that the bride and groom should work with them. A relative argued that they were being charged $35, but the priest simply said that this was the norm.

Outraged relatives tried to reason with the priest and reminded him that they had already paid for the mass but he said that he did not want those photographers inside his church and that they were only allowed to work outside, according to Mexican newspaper Center Page.
