The ceremony was stopped for 20 minutes as police arrested the man, who is now in custody awaiting court.
Video footage from the incident shows groomsmen trying to detain the man as he stood at the front of the church.
A group of several men tumbled down the stairs leading up to the altar as they tried to grab the man. The eventually chased the man into a corner of the church before holding him outside until police arrived.
The young man, who is a student residing in Valladolid, has been ‘accused of disturbing public order, threats and crime against religious feelings’.
He was not armed during the incident, though he has a history of disorderly conduct, a national police source told ABC.
