This Groom's Brilliant World Cup Speech Is Going Viral

Spare a thought for the brides who were getting married this Saturday afternoon during the England game - especially this one, whose new husband made this seemingly heartfelt speech...

England put in a phenomenal performance in their World Cup quarterfinal match against Sweden this weekend, winning 2-0 and storming through to the semi-finals.

It seemed like the whole of England was celebrating and you couldn't go two minutes without hearing someone say 'It's coming home'!

But as well as being World Cup season, it's also wedding season and across the country. This means that brides and grooms have had to deal with guests surreptitiously checking the score through their ceremonies.
