Best man breaks arm night before wedding, then his replacement breaks his foot

Most people have concerns about their wedding day.

Will the ceremony go off without a hitch?

Will the weather be nice?

Will there be cold feet?

But few couples anticipate that two people from their wedding party will end up in the hospital with broken bones.

Steven Jackson, 39, was asked to be the best man at the wedding between his childhood friend, Michael Jackson, 40, and Kelly Willets, 31.

But on the night before the wedding, which was planned for 3 May, Steven fell off his bed at the Travelodge hotel in Oldham, Greater Manchester, and snapped his humerus bone.


Another friend stepped up to the task – but he too was soon put out of commission.

Brendan O’Mara, 41, was the best man for a grand total of 30 minutes, before he tripped on the pavement and broke his foot while having a cigarette.

The ambulance left the hotel with Steven at 11.30, but was back less than an hour later to pick up Brendan.

The groom, now left with two injured best men, was in disbelief.

‘I just couldn’t believe it was happening — it was like a film,’ said Michael.


Thankfully, the rest of the wedding went off without a hitch and no more broken bones.

And it wasn’t a total disaster for the best men, as both Steven and Brendan made it to the wedding the next day.

However, one was on crutches and the other wore an arm sling.

At least they had a brilliant story for the best man speech.
