Weddings take meticulous planning but some things are simply just out of your control.

Like one of your guests collapsing the moment just before your first kiss in matrimony.

Luck just wasn’t in this Australian influencer’s corner, when she started to feel unwell during a friend’s wedding ceremony, The Sun reports.

Jade Tuncdoruk collapsed into the aisle from heatstroke just as the couple were about to share their first kiss.

Jade posted a clip of the incident on her TikTok page, but her followers were less than impressed.

“That time I passed out at my friends’ wedding as they were about to kiss and my boyfriend almost ran in front of them,” she captioned the video.

As some of the guests rush to her aid, Jade’s boyfriend – who was a groomsman in the wedding party – spots the commotion and starts to run over.

Thanks to the best man, the videographer's shot of the couple’s first kiss isn’t completely ruined as he tells him to take a back route.

Jade walked away from the incident mostly unharmed but had to carry around an ice pack for the rest of the evening.

“I remember knowing I was going to pass out cause Id had heatstroke before and all I could think was, ‘Please don’t let me ruin my friend’s wedding’,” she explained in the comments.

"Everyone did a great job at helping me [and] distracting them."

Thus far, the video has racked in more than nine million views since Jade shared it.

But some users are accusing her of detracting attention from the bride and groom.

“I’d be so mad if this was my moment and you done passed out,” one TikTok user wrote. “I shouldn’t be but I would.”

“That’s one way to upstage the [bride],” another wrote.

But others gushed about her boyfriend's sweet instincts to help her.

“OMG, how cute how his first instinct is to run to you," one follower wrote.
