(Newser) – Here comes the bride ... so watch out. A bride-to-be flying from England to Barcelona last week was caught on video pummeling a bridesmaid with a friend's help—until Ryanair staff broke up the fight, the Manchester Evening News reports. "All of a sudden I heard it all kicking off," said eyewitness Tony Tickle, who recorded the fracas on his cell phone. "I could see shouting and it looked like two girls were fighting. Then I saw the bride run along and jump in." Identified in another Evening News article as Kelly Lloyd, 30, the brawling bride was apparently punching bridesmaid Katrina Hanafin, 33, while wearing a white veil.

The fight continued as a verbal altercation when they landed in Barcelona. Lloyd told the Daily Mirror that Hanafin was arrested, but the bridesmaid denied it, saying she just bought another ticket and flew back to Manchester. Lloyd has "always been jealous" of her, Hanafin said. "I’m covered in bruises and can’t move my arm. ... I've got to have physio now." For her part, Lloyd said she suffered cuts and bruises when Hanafin attacked her earlier: "She threw me to the floor and was kicking and punching me. She was shouting that she was going to kill me and nobody could get her off me." Neither said what got them so angry in the first place.
