An Iranian bride tragically died at her own wedding after getting hit by a stray bullet during a round of celebratory gunfire.

Mahvash Leghaei, 24, had reportedly just tied the knot when a male guest decided to mark the occasion by firing off some ceremonial gunshots — a custom that’s illegal in Iran.

Unfortunately, the shooter’s festive firearm display, in which he allegedly used an unlicensed hunting rifle, backfired horribly: While the first shot went off without incident, a second round reportedly went through Leghaei’s skull and brain before hitting two male guests, according to reports.

“We had an emergency call of a shooting at a wedding hall in Firuzabad city and officers were dispatched immediately,” a police spokesperson, Colonel Mehdi Jokar, told Newsflash of the freak accident, which occurred at the wedding south of Shiraz.

Jokar chalked up the marital misfire to “crowds” and a “poor control of the weapon.”
