A couple were forced to switch wedding venues at the last minute - so Barack Obama could play golf.

Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr planned to wed on a military golf course with picturesque views in Oahu, Hawaii.

But the pair, both US army captains, had to move to a nearby lawn after the president decided he wanted to play a round.

It appears Mr Obama, who is on holiday in Hawaii, did not realise he had interrupted a wedding. The groom’s sister said he later apologised and congratulated the couple. - Daily Mail
