My husband and I were set on fire during our wedding – we actually did it ourselves but there’s a reason

A BRIDE and groom were set alight as they celebrated their wedding day – but it’s not what it seems.

Gabe Jessop and his wife Ambyr are both stunt doubles, and they decided to put their creative talents to good use on their big day.

In a TikTok of the event, the couple can be seen standing in their finery with Ambyr carrying a bouquet of flowers.

A man approaches with what appears to be a large lighter and sets the bouquet on fire.

The flame spreads to cover the couple, who run past a crowd of guests before kneeling down on the ground to allow a fire extinguisher to put the fire out.

The clip was shared on TikTok by wedding DJ Russ Powell, who said: “Ambyr and Gabe met on set.

I'm a gypsy bride & met husband for first time at altar - his mum ruined it allGuest’s wedding outfit is SO inappropriate that everyone assumes she’s the bride

“Their wedding exit makes sparklers look boring.”

The clip was viewed 15 million times and racked up 2.8 million likes.

One user commented: “Damn! A full burn to tie the knot.”

“I know that photographer was stressed,” joked another viewer.

Someone else said: “Please tell me the hair was protected,” to which Russ replied: “They both had anti-burn gel in their hair and face, then she had a wig on top.”

“So many things could’ve killed them in this video,” another viewer commented.

Someone else added: “If my marriage is not going to be this lit, I’m leaving him at the alter.” [sic]

Other users compared it to The Hunger Games movie clip in which actors Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson are similarly set alight.
