Kenyans have sympathised with the couple after guests ruined the wedding by throwing food, utensils, and glassware at one other.
Credible sources said that at the time the fight broke out, the couple getting married had not arrived at the reception venue where the chaos erupted.
Videos of the scuffle were shared on social media, showing guests throwing food, utensils, and bottles at each other.
One video, in particular, shows a lady hurtling a glassware aimed at another of the guests.
The victim was struck in her head as the glass shattered, prompting those near her to take cover.
In the videos, the injured woman can be seen scampering for safety as blood tricked down her face and on her dress.
Well-wishers helped escort her to safety for first aid treatment as other baffled guests looked on.
It is not yet clear what prompted the chaos, but footage obtained before the fight shows the injured woman putting food from her plate into her bag.
The incident has also sparked debate on social media, with many speculating over the cause of the fight.
Others commented that the incident serves as an indicator to only invite a few close people at weddings, to reduce the chances of embarrassing encounters.
A section of netizens also sympathised with the couple who had planned the wedding.
