* 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:

* Bruce Banner and Betty Ross got married during John Byrne's run on Hulk. When the priest said this, General Ross (Betty's father) appeared with a gun, and ordered to stop the ceremony. He shot Rick Jones, but Betty did not allow to go on: the only way he could prevent her marriage was by killing her. He gave up. Rick had a gunshot, but refused to be taken to the hospital immediately:
-->''"Mr. priest, take some 30 seconds and get this couple married at long last, and let's go to the hospital after that."''

* Lampshaded in Series/{{Amen}}. When asked if their are any objections to her marrying Reuben, Thelma turns around and glares at everyone, then walks up and down the aisle to ensure that no one interrupts.

* ''TouchedByAnAngel'' had an episode that played the trope right: a guy who'd been in a coma brings an injunction to stop his exwife from marrying his friend, who had been given power of attorney and signed off on the divorce in the first place(which is what allowed him to get the injunction).
* ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'' Ray's brother Robert is about to wed his longtime girlfriend Amy when the priest asks if anyone objects, Robert's mother Marie stands, much to everyone's horror. The kicker is that Marie actually ''likes'' Amy (much more than Ray's wife Debra) and has been pushing Robert to marry her for years. She declares that she may have been wrong to put so much pressure on them. Unfortunately she chooses that moment to say so, basically ruining their day. It may have been the moment when the character crossed the MoralEventHorizon from [[MeddlingParents Meddling Parent]] to EvilMatriarch.
* Subverted on the 9 September 2010 episode of ''TheYoungAndTheRestless'', which featured the wedding of Billy Abbott and Victoria Newman. The minister (played by [[FatherKnowsBest Elinor Donahue]]) begins to say the line when Billy suggests she skip it. Given the large number of extended Newman and Abbott family members in attendance, this was wise. Subverted again when the cops break up the wedding for unrelated reasons.

Added DiffLines:

* A rather cruel example happens in the episode of ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'' "Second Hand Emotions". Lifeline attends his younger sister's wedding (which he does ''not'' want to do, as his whole family considers him a BlackSheep) when Zartan intervenes right before this is said, using him to test a new emotion-control device. Lifeline gets angry as a result and objects, yelling that his sister is "too young to marry and too good for that wimp". [[EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor (All the while, Zartan is chuckling to Zarana that "This is going to be fun.")]] Ironically, while this naturally makes Lifeline's relationship with his father worsen for the moment, the villains' plan [[NiceJobFixingItVillain ultimately causes them to make them talk about it and ultimately reconcile.]]
