* Parodied by ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' in their 'Scotsman on a Horse' skit, in which the wedding is interrupted at a similar point by the titular scotsman entering the chapel, walking down the lane and, without missing a beat, wordlessly carrying off... The groom.

* In ''[[{{Temeraire}} Empire of Ivory]]'', we have a ''very'' narrow aversion played for comedy. When the [[MarriedAtSea ship's chaplain]] gets to the phrase in question, a 15 tonne dragon with acid spray that could trivially sink the boat they are on leans in to ask "Mayn't I?" The bride who had raised said dragon from hatching simply looked up and said "No, you may ''not''!" Sighs and a threat to chuck the groom overboard if he is unpleasant to his new wife ensue.

* ASongOfIceAndFire lampshades this; though the actual wedding ceremonies use a different set of vows, when she is parading towards a ceremony to enter into a political marriage [[spoiler: Daenarys]] thinks that if this were a story, [[spoiler: Daario Naharis]] would swoop in and grab her right ''now''. [[spoiler: [[DefiedTrope He doesn't]], [[RealityEnsues and the marriage goes ahead exactly as planned]]]].

* Played with in the ''Series/MuderSheWrote'' episode "Something Borrowed, Someone Blue": After so much has happened to delay, spoil and otherwise interfere with Grady and Donna's wedding, when the priest says the line, everyone holds their breath for a moment, wondering what's going to happen now. Nobody interrupts, and the episode ends with Jessica giving a sigh of relief that the wedding is finally completed.

* Subverted in ''PeepShow'', where Mark, desperate to get out of marrying Sophie, actually looks hopefully around the church for someone to come up with a reason. No-one does.

* Played straight with Paul and Rebecca's first wedding on ''{{Neighbours}}''. Lyn arrives at the right moment to reveal that she and Paul are still legally married.
* On ''CSINewYork'', Mac once interrupted a wedding because the groom's tuxedo had been contaminated with toxic chemicals. Unlike most examples, the ceremony is implied to resume as soon as the groom has changed clothes and been checked over by the [=EMTs=]. Three guesses which line the minister had just uttered when Mac interrupts....

* Variant in an episode of ''TheProudFamily'', where the objector is the groom's ''son''; the groom is apparently senile and unaware of what year it is, among other things. He had a tendency to get in relationships with (and even marry) other women, only to wander off and forget about them.

* In Teresa Edgerton's ''[[{{Celydonn}} The Castle of the Silver Wheel]]'', WisePrince Tryffin learns that his very young cousin Gwenlliant is being forced into an ArrangedMarriage, and interrupts the ceremony to allow her to claim that they have a ChildhoodMarriagePromise (which in their church constitutes a precontract, and thus is a legal impediment to any other marriage if it isn't dealt with). He also tells the groom - a man notorious for abusing all three of his previous wives as well as his mistresses - that the man is lucky; if the marriage had gone through, Tryffin would have killed him.

* Literature/TheActionHerosHandbook gives very practical advise about how to do it (having a prepared speech and a getaway vehicle ready helps heaps, as well as notes of apology and money so you can pay for having ruined a wedding). It also advises you to avoid doing it during the tropenaming line, since emotions will be running quite high at that point.

* In ''The Secret Countess'' by Eva Ibboston, the [[TheButlerDidIt butler, Proom,]] stages an elaborate charade in order to encourage a third party to step up and protest at a wedding, because the groom is too honorable to jilt his bride even though everyone [[spoiler:(including him) knows that she's totally horrible and will make his life a misery.]]. When the man finally shouts out "[[BigNo No!]] This wedding must not be!" we get this memorable line:
