Presider vs. Photog Smackdown: Every Bride’s Nightmare

I ran across this video today and had a little flashback to my own wedding, which was quite simple by today’s standards. You’ve got to watch this drama unfold:

Popular opinion seems to be that the “priest” (which I don’t think he’s a Catholic priest, because of the collar and the fact that they wedding is outdoors) is the wrongful party here. But I immediately thought, why is the photographer shooting from that angle? Everyone in the congregation likely saw the bride and groom, the presider and the videographer immediately behind him. Pretty intrusive…

What’s your take? Presider gone crazy, videographer in the way, or was the whole thing a fake?
