The video, which has been viewed thousands of times on Twitter, showed the couple slowly rising on the swing until the hoist snapped.

According to reports, no complaint has been filed and the event management company has apologised for the incident.  

Speaking to NDTV, an employee from the company said: ‘No one suffered injuries in the incident. The bride and the groom are safe.’

Another added: ‘If I was the event management, I’d be worried.’ 

Last month another video from an Indian wedding went viral when two guests carried on eating despite a fire breaking out.

The footage, filmed in Bhiwandi, in Maharashtra, India, opens with a shot of the two men at the table nonchalantly making conversation with the camera operator.

The man in the white shirt then casually glances at the fire before returning his attention to the meal.

Many people at the wedding can be seen gawping at the fire as it raged but the two men being filmed were unperturbed. 

The pair then continue their conversation as is the wedding had been uninterrupted.

According to NDTV, the fire took place at the wedding due to the use of firecrackers.

The fire gutted six two-wheelers, some chairs, and decorations from the nuptial celebrations in India’s second-most populous state.

Four fire engines were rushed to the spot to douse the fire, as per the Thane Municipal Corporation, but no lives were lost.
