(Newser) – Tenille Bradley has just survived her wedding day. Literally. The Australian bride, who married Saturday at a country club in southwest Sydney, was nearly hit by an unruly and allegedly quite drunk wedding guest after he got in an argument with other guests, reports the Sydney Morning Herald. The 55-year-old apparently jumped into his Mazda 3 around 9:30pm, raced toward two people he narrowly missed, and when someone tried to take his keys from the ignition, reversed at high speed toward another group, this one including the bride. He managed to avoid everyone, and no one was injured.

Wedding photographer Warren Donovan tells Australia's ABC News that the guest, believed to be the partner of a relative of the couple, was "well and truly" drunk, but he adds that the couple, while shaken, "sort of went, 'We're not going to let this ruin the night.'" The man was found around midnight on foot, at which point police also confiscated marijuana. He was charged with menacing and dangerous driving, disqualified driving, and possession of a prohibited drug; he's due in court at the end of the month. (This bride-to-be was stabbed after her own bachelorette party.)
