Your wedding is meant to be one of the best nights of your life and leave you with happy memories for years to come.
But instead one shocked Brisbane couple are hoping police will catch a security guard who reportedly stole gifts and cards from the wedding 'wishing well' during their first dance.
Professional boxers Bec Rodriguez and her new husband Adrian told 7 News they felt "disgusted" after reviewing the CCTV footage which showed guard making off with approximately $1050 in cash, as well as meaningful cards and letters from guests, when everyone was distracted.
Rodriguez told 7 News they only discovered there were missing items when a friend texted to explain something they'd written in their card.
"That's when Adrian realised we'd never opened [the card]," she said.
To make matters worse, the venue only allowed them to review CCTV footage after messaging all their guests to ask if they'd stolen the goods, which Rodriguez called a "frustrating process".
"I was angry, upset. Having to call my guests saying, 'did you take something out of my wishing well?'...I felt really awkward and a few of my guests felt awkward."
She said the CCTV footage confirmed it was the guard, and a police investigation has since commenced.
"It's just the audacity of this guy, who we've hired to secure our stuff and he's actually stolen it," Rodriguez said.
"It's not something you should be dealing with a week after your wedding."
In a statement to 7 News, the security firm said they couldn't provide a full comment due to the investigation, "but suffice to say we empathise completely with the couple in this matter".
"We have provided any assistance necessary and will continue to cooperate fully to help in any way we can."
