Your wedding probably takes precedence over the Rugby World Cup... just, but it doesn't mean your friends have to be delighted about it.

Brendan McCann's decision to organise his wedding on the weekend of the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals gave his brother, and best man Stephen, the perfect opportunity to give him a ribbing over it.

He managed to enlist the help of some familiar faces as Devin Toner, Robbie Henshaw, Chris Henry, Conor Murray, Dave Kearney, Richardt Strauss and a panda-wielding Mike McCarthy took part in a video to join in on the slagging.

Here's the reaction from the wedding party as the video was broadcast on a big screen. The newlyweds Brendan and Imelda certainly enjoyed it:
