Video: Obama calls couple to apologise for interrupting their wedding ceremony

By Greg Murphy

As he was taking in a round of golf whilst on holiday in Hawaii, US President Barack Obama caused a bit of a stir when an entire wedding ceremony had to be uprooted and moved to allow him to play through.

A video has since emerged of the President calling the couple to apologise for disrupting their special day. 

“Listen. Congratulations on your wedding. I feel terrible. Nobody told us,” said Mr Obama

“If they had just mentioned that they were going to have a wedding on the 16th hole, we would have skipped the 16th hole,” he added.

“I hope the wedding went OK anyway.”

The White House has said Obama was not aware that his game would affect the wedding of Army Captains Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr

“Sorry for the change of plans. But sounds like you guys are gonna have a great wedding and at least you will have a good story to tell,” Mr Obama said.

Sounds like a top bloke!
