A bridegroom in Egypt tried to put the 'fun' into fundamentalism by throwing an Islamic State (Isis) themed wedding party.

Wedding guests brandished fake swords in scenes captured on video, while the best man wore a balaclava like that donned by Jihadi John in beheading films released by IS.

Meanwhile, the happy couple were led into a cage similar to that in which the terror group burned alive captive Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh.

The soundtrack to all this questionable taste was provided by an IS propaganda anthem, set to a dance beat.

Reports state that not everybody present at the wedding in Menoufia saw the funny side of the prank by the bridegroom, who involved only the best man and photographer in his plan.

As a result, some terrified guests thought bloodthirsty fanatics from IS had invaded the wedding party.

Watch an excerpt of the IS-theme party below.
