As I write this, many of us are waiting on pins and needles for the Supreme Court to rule on marriage equality for the first time.

By the time this post publishes we'll know whether the court released opinions in the DOMA and Prop 8 cases today or decided to prolong the wait yet again.

But regardless of whether we're celebrating or agonizing, this charming video from across the pond is sure to elicit a smile.

Watch newlywed couple Gary and Tracy Richardson and a badass Anglican vicar turn a buttoned-down wedding into an awesome dance party, after the jump. You've probably seen wedding flash mobs before, but this is the first one I've seen that takes place during the ceremony itself, right after "you may kiss the bride."

My favorite moment is at 1:06 when a lady in the congregation wearing one of those fabulously ostentatious British hats stands up and joins the dance. Oh, and when the minister busts a move in the center aisle at 2:26. What are yours?
