Wedding guests were kicked out of a venue after allegedly refusing to adhere to coronavirus rules – with footage showing guests packed up on the dance floor.
Revelers at the wedding venue The Renaissance in Lidcombe, western Sydney, were asked to leave on Sunday evening after allegedly failing to comply with the venue's COVID-safe rules.
The hand vision of the event showed guests disregarding social distancing measures while dancing to music and filling the dance floor with bride Nazife.
New South Wales weddings can accommodate up to 150 people. However, guests must keep a distance of four meters during the service and be at least three meters away from the performers at the reception.
Other COVIDSafe guidelines state that the bride and groom are only allowed to drink alcohol on the dance floor and only while seated.
The bride Nazife (pictured) can be seen on Sunday evening before the loud wedding reception at The Renaissance in Lidcombe in western Sydney. The venue kicked guests out after "refusing to adhere to social distancing rules".
The footage showed revelers grabbing the floor and standing on stage near a singer while jumping up and down to the music.
The guests were then removed from the venue by management.
A spokeswoman for the venue told Daily Mail Australia that the bride and groom were "very upset" at the invitation to guests to leave, but declined to comment.
The bride was also contacted for comment.
Earlier in the day, Nazife and her groom Patrick arrived in lavish Rolls-Royce phantoms and posed for photos in Sydney's Circular Quay before traveling to the reception location.
The MC at Sunday Wedding John Alten appeared on Triple M's podcast The Briefing earlier this week in an episode of "The Fun Police: Are COVID Marshals Ruining Weddings?"
"In some cases I have to act like the funny police," he said. "In my view, it is important that these restrictions be repeated over and over – people's health is of the utmost importance."

Australian assistant chief physician Michael Kidd said the scenes at the wedding were "more than disappointing" and could "put lives in danger".
"It's really unacceptable that people don't take this incredibly seriously," he told Sunrise.
“We can have people who have no symptoms, or very mild symptoms that are still very contagious to other people.
"Lives are at risk when people break rules and regulations that were put in place to protect us all."
The wild scenes in which the number of fines imposed by the New South Wales Government Customer Service rose to a total of $ 152,500 prompted Premier Gladys Berejiklian to issue a warning to the state's venues.
"Compliance is critical," she said. "If we don't see greater acceptance in the near future, we will consider further measures."
The Garry Owen Hotel in Rozelle, Sydney's inner west, was named "Worst Pub Seen So far" for COVID security breaches this week.

The pub received two fines totaling $ 10,000 for what the NSW government called "total disregard for mandatory COVID security measures."
& # 39; The list of violations grew from then on. In fact, the venue was essentially operating as if there were no restrictions, ”said Argeres, compliance director for Liquor & Gaming NSW.
Violations included the company not being registered as a COVIDSafe, not having a current COVID-19 safety plan, not enforcing registration procedures, and not having any hygiene processes.
The inspectors also observed that physical distancing was not enforced and customers stood and mingled while drinking.
