We’ve nearly reached the end of magpie swooping season, but spare a thought for this Aussie couple who barely escaped unscathed on their very own wedding day!


Sara and Phillip were posing for wedding photos when a cheeky magpie emerged. It instantly starting swooping at the couple as they attempted to take a series of romantic shots. 


“We had driven a half-hour to that location so we had little choice but to continue in spite of the attacks. Fortunately no one was hit, just a few close calls,” photographer Karen Parr told BuzzFeed.

Luckily the couple managed to get plenty of other beautiful, magpie-free photos!
