A funny and cringe-inducing video that has been making the rounds on the Internet this week captures the moment the testy man of God halted a wedding ceremony as the happy couple were about to exchange their vows to give a bothersome cameraman a piece of his mind.

The clip was reportedly sent to the wedding forum by the unfortunate videographer who got caught in the dour-faced priest's crosshairs.
In the video, shot from behind the unnamed clergyman sporting a Roman collar, the bespectacled pastor begins to recite the Declaration of Consent from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer when the ceremony suddenly grinds to a screeching halt.
'Where do you want me to be?' a man's voice could be heard in the background.
'Anywhere other than here,' the officiant tersely responds.
That's wrath: When the cameramen failed to comply with his order to get out, the priest threatened to stop the ceremony altogether
Keeping the faith: The cleric ranted that a wedding is a solemn ceremony focused on God, not a photo-session
Evidently not pleased that the video crew were taking their time complying with his command, the irked man of the cloth explained in no uncertain terms that 'this is a solemn assembly, not a photography session.'
With the bride and groom uncomfortably glancing at one another, evidently at a loss, the situation takes a turn for the worse when the indignant cleric threatens to stop the ceremony if the cameramen don't get out of his way.
‘This is not about the photography - this is about God,’ he declares.
Luckily for the bride and groom, the video team decided not to test the irascible officiant's patience any further and bowed out.

Since being posted on YouTube, the clip depicting the awkward exchange between the clench-jawed pastor and the shutterbgus intruding on 'his' ceremony has drawn more than 116,000 views, and counting.
