Police were called to the Hilton Hotel in Manchester after staff complained of an altercation involving the bride and groom.
Police arrested the newly-weds after a row broke out with reception staff as the couple tried to check in.
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, a witness said: "The bride had a cigarette in her mouth. I couldn't see the groom."
"It looked like the police were trying to calm her down."
Staff at the concierge then called the hotel’s security to assist as the row developed.
A fight then broke out involving the security guards and the couple.
During the scuffle, the 25-year-old groom, dressed in his wedding suit, allegedly attacked one the security guards cutting his face in the process.
The bride, who was still in her dress, is then accused of shouting racist abuse at the guards, who were Asian.
The groom was arrested on suspicion of a section 47 assault with his 29-year-old wife being held on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence.
They were taken to a local police station where they were kept in separate cells, just a few metres apart, overnight.
They remain in custody for questioning about the allegations.
