New couple were arrested on their wedding day, allegedly for contravening the lockdown regulations.

This was after police stormed a South African wedding and arrested over 50 people for what they termed as violation of lockdown rules during the coronavirus pandemic.

A video circulated of the bride being helped into a police van by her groom.

The man filming the video can be heard saying: "The bride is getting arrested, just like that."

Other guests just watched as the bride saw her greatest day of the year turn into a nightmare.

The entire gathering of more than 50 people was placed in custody.

On the social network, many had a lot of reactions regarding the whole incident.

Some believed the police did the right thing.

Other people saw the funny side and believed the groom's concubine or neighbours who weren't invited had something to do with snitching on the couple.

Either way, it's terrible their big day had to end this way.

Mzansi is on a 21-day lockdown that has been in place for a little over a week now.

There are fears that the lockdown might be extended, particularly if the infection numbers keep increasing.

While the lockdown has given some locals a moment to learn more about the new coronavirus, others have become dangerous social media doctors by disseminating misinformed chain messages claiming to have found the cure - an anti-malaria drug.
