A wedding photographer was accidentally shot dead by the couple he was photographing after he asked them to pose with guns.
Sicilian photographer Calogero Scimea, 45, was taking the wedding pictures of high school sweethearts Valentina Anitra, 22, and Ignazio Licodia, 25, when he asked them to use some hunting rifles as props.
One of the guns went off, killing the photographer in front of the horrified bride and groom, and their parents.
The accident happened just before the wedding party attended the church.
According to the UK’s Daily Mail, the tragedy was compounded as the photographer was standing in for a colleague who was ill.
The rifles were legally held and the family is now talking to police.
