A newlywed couple were forced to cancel their dream honeymoon when the groom broke his ankle after downing too many expresso martinis.
Paisley and Ravid Rogers-Tripp were celebrating after they were finally able to tie the knot but the day ended with a dancefloor disaster in April.
Despite enduring a drunken fall, the dancing groom vowed he would continue to party late into the night with his new wife.

But at around 5am Ravin began to feel an excruciating pain and examined his legs.
“That’s when I was sober enough to feel the enormous pain I was in, and to see how swollen and bruised my leg was,” Rav said.
So, instead of a morning cuddled up with her new husband, Paisley, also 30, watched him head off to the hospital, reports The Mirror.
Hours later, Rav called his wife to say he had broken his ankle really badly and would need surgery.
So the couple cancelled their honeymoon and returned home to Exeter, Devon, to wait for the op.
“We should have been on a romantic walking break in the Lake District,” said school pastoral leader Paisley.

“Instead, I was being Rav’s nurse and had to help with everything from meals to going to the toilet.”
Although Rav needed three hours of surgery after the fall, the couple still look back on their big day and smile.
“Rav says he’d do the whole day again, broken ankle and all,” Paisley said. “We try to see the funny side… now we call espresso martinis‘ ankle breakers!’”
And as for the next time there’s a wedding dancefloor? “He’s totally banned!” she laughed.
