A video that has since gone viral shows guests at a lavish wedding party exchanging blows and chairs and wine glasses being raised in the air.

Guests were seen punching and kicking each other at the Ramada Park Hall Hotel in Wolverhampton just after 9.30 pm on Saturday (12), and a teen and three men were taken to the hospital following injuries sustained in the disturbance.

Footage shows a bloodied man being led away as shocked witnesses look on.

It is not immediately known what led to the brawl, but an unnamed guest told BirminghamLive it was down to too much alcohol.

Calling the entire incident “disgusting”, another guest, who also did not want to be named, said: “This poor bloke was left with blood literally pouring down his face. This isn’t how a wedding should be conducted – they were animals.”

West Midlands Ambulance Service said they received nine calls about the incident and sent a major response.

They said: “We received no fewer than nine calls to reports of a brawl at a wedding at the Park Hall Ramada Hotel in Wolverhampton at 9.30 on Saturday evening.

“Given the initial description of the incident and suggestions that there were numerous casualties, we sent three ambulances, a paramedic officer, the Hazardous Area Response Team to assist with triaging and the mental health car which has a paramedic, police officer and mental health nurse.

“Ambulance staff rapidly assessed a large number of potential patients.

“In total, there were four casualties that needed further assistance.

“A teenage girl who had been working at the event was treated at the scene for a medical condition and injuries sustained in the disturbance.  After assessment by ambulance staff, she was taken to New Cross Hospital.

“Two men in their 20s were taken to the same hospital with injuries sustained in the incident.  A man in his 40s, who had also been injured in the incident, was assessed but chose not to go to hospital against advice from the paramedic on scene.”
