A newly-wed couple who were heading to the reception ground after the ceremony had to become rescuers after the bridesmaids fell in  water.

At least four of the five bridesmaids fell into water when a bridge they were walking on to the reception collapsed. 

In a video shot at an unknown location in Ghana and shared on social media, the bridesmaids had to be rescued by the groom and his men.

The women were gasping for breath.

The video was shot by a member of the bridal party.
