A video has gone viral after a Washington DC native embarked on a 4,800-kilometre journey to attend a friend’s wedding in Glasgow, Scotland, only to arrive at the wrong venue. Arti Mala had travelled for 12 hours, crossing the Atlantic Ocean, to be present at the event. However, upon arrival, she was baffled to see unfamiliar faces at the ceremony.

Arti had taken a long-haul flight and then a taxi to what she thought was her friend’s wedding venue. However, when she arrived, expecting to see the joyous faces of the bride and groom, she was shocked to discover that she had arrived at the wrong wedding. Standing before her was a couple she had never met, exchanging romantic smiles.

Quickly checking the venue, Arti was certain of her mistake when she found out that her friend’s wedding was taking place at another venue, approximately 1 kilometre away. Unable to hide her embarrassment, Arti pulled out her mobile phone to record this unforgettable moment. The clip shows Arti, looking sheepish as she gazes into the camera.
