Bride Left Bleeding During First Dance After Leech Attack On Wedding Day

An Australian bride was hauled off the dance floor after tying the knot when her new mother-in-law spotted blood pouring from her wedding dress.

Madalyn Wise was dancing with her friends when she was suddenly ushered into the dressing room and told blood was visible beneath her gown.

After pulling up Madalyn’s dress, her mother-in-law found three leeches stuck to the bride’s body.

In a follow-up to her now viral TikTok video, Madalyn told her followers that she initially thought she had started her period early due to the stress of wedding planning. However, she was quickly informed that there were in fact three blood-thirsty parasitic worms stuck to her leg. 

Madalyn said: “There was one underneath my foot, one in the armpit of my knee and there was another one crawling up my leg.

“There was just so much blood, and it seemed like it wasn’t going to stop bleeding.”

The newlywed explained that the leeches had likely found their way onto her body when she was posing for her wedding portraits in ‘really long, sludgy grass’.

Madalyn and her husband Jayden wed at the Summergrove Estate on the Gold Coast, which she said had experienced high rainfall ahead of their ceremony. 

Madalyn told her followers: “The really, really fat [leech] was the one that was in my knee pit. And it would have been there for like three hours.

“The fat one that was in my video had actually filled up with blood and dropped off my leg on the dance floor, which is why so much blood started to come out of my dress.”

Madalyn added: “It was [on my leg] from the photo shoot in the afternoon until our first dance.

“So it was literally on me throughout my whole reception – through dinner and the speeches.”

Leeches aren’t dangerous, but hosts rarely feel their bites because the worms release a pain killing chemical when they latch on – which is why Madalyn was oblivious to the parasites until she started gushing blood. 

The bride also said that her new husband Jayden was ‘really supportive’ and didn’t leave her side through the ordeal.

She said: “He stayed with me the whole time this was happening, and he was really supportive.

“But I’ll never forget when he first came in and saw me,” Madalyn added, telling her social media followers that Jayden found the situation ‘shocking’.
