Who doesn't want to make a grand entrance at their own wedding? But there are some who want to make a dramatic entry on heir big day.

Well, a groom in Pakistan decided that he needed to make a grander than usual entrance at this wedding. So what could he do? Well, how about ditching the regular entrance on a horseback and arriving while ‘sitting’ on a lion!

A man from Pakistan’s Multan area decided to sit on the top of a lion’s cage (with a live lion inside) and reach his wedding, The Indian Express reported.

While the report identifies the groom as Sheikh Irfan, his father’s name is Sheikh Hashmat.

HERE'S THE VIDEO:

This isn't the first time that such 'daredevilry' has been seen at a wedding. But unlike this instance sometimes it ends in tragedy. Like when a bride died in a helicopter crash minutes before she was set to tie the knot in San Paulo. The bride wanted to surprise her husband-to-be by making a dramatic entrance to their wedding in a helicopter, but traggically the aircraft crashed moments before the ceremony, instantly killing the bride and three others.
