Smoke coming out of his ears?

Costly: The damage caused after the groom allegedly started the fire is thought to be going to cost more than £1m to repair Watching the news tonight and there was the story of the bridegroom who had set fire to his wedding venue last year who was charged and sentenced today.  Venue was Pemberton Castle - the cost of venue and wedding was more than $NZ50,000 and something about the day upset him.  Or perhaps he just had a few drinks too many.  anyway around 3am he had an argument with some of the staff, borrowed a cigarette lighter and then went into drawing room and set fire to a curtain.  It was very effective as one wing burnt down - including the rooms where the bride and her family were sleeping (they escaped).  
Took more than 12 hours to put fire out.

I guess that wasn't the happiest day of his life.

Watch out for angry bridegrooms and never lend an angry bridegroom a cigarette lighter.
