A reverend refused to perform the wedding service for a man and his fiancee as the man was still drunk from the night before.

A minister refused to marry a couple because the groom was too drunk.

Jake Francis Brooks arrived at the Exeter Uniting Church in Adelaide, in southern Australia, still drunk from his night out and Reverend Ian Hunter refused to carry out the service stating that it was "unethical", according to the Adelaide Advertiser.

Brooks spoke to reporters about his disappointment saying: "I've been dreaming for days and days and days about her beautiful wedding dress and seeing her walking down the aisle.

"I'm meant to be getting married; man...All I needed was my woman to feel like she was the queen of the day. All I could think about was my woman."

The 41-year-old musician was arrested and charged with disorderly behaviour and resisting arrest and his fiancée has since called off the wedding, permanently.
