A Saudi man divorced his wife on their wedding day after receiving fake photographs and love messages presumed to be for his bride.

The man's aunt admitted later that she sent the messages to his mobile phone so he will dump his new wife and marries one of her daughters.

It was too late to salvage the situation as the groom had already divorced his bride and she refused to return to him.

"After receiving those photographs and messages, the groom divorced his bride on their wedding day in front of stunned relatives and guests," Sada newspaper said in a report from the Western Res Sea port of Jeddah.

"After his aunt told him the truth, he asked the bride's father to remarry her but he and his daughter refused," the paper added.
