As they shared their first dance as a married couple, Blake Osgood and Teisha Ojeda prepared for the most special night of their lives.

But within hours their wedding day had turned into a nightmare, with Osgood locked up in police custody following an alleged wild brawl at their reception.

Osgood, 26, allegedly punched an officer in the chest when police were called after a fight broke out at the Elouera Surf Life Saving Club at Cronulla, in Sydney’s south.  

He was charged with two counts of resisting or hindering police in the execution of duty, failing to comply with directions and two counts of assaulting a police officer in execution of duty.

After spending her wedding night alone, the newly crowned Mrs Osgood refused to discuss the incident when contacted by Daily Mail Australia on Monday.

Video from what should have been the couple’s special day shows them dancing to a rendition of Ed Sheeran’s hit song Perfect.

But the emotional scenes would allegedly escalate as the night went on.  

Parramatta Bail Court heard on Sunday that police were called to the surf club about 10.30pm following reports of a brawl. 

When officers arrived they issued Osgood and a 55-year-old man with directions to move on.

But the groom allegedly refused and pushed a male constable to the ground, before punching a leading senior constable.

Police used pepper spray to subdue Mr Osgood before he was arrested and taken to Sutherland Police Station.

He spent his wedding night in a cell at Surry Hills Police Station, still wearing chinos and a white shirt he had picked out for his special day. 

He appeared in court via video link and was granted bail, being released back to his wife that afternoon.

‘You‘re 26, you’re married,’ magistrate Ian McRae sternly told Osgood in court, The Daily Telegraph reports.

A promising junior rugby league player, Osgood trialed with the Newcastle Knights as a teenager.

The Woolooware man now plays for local side De La Salle in the A-grade division.  

Osgood will return to court on December 8, while police investigations are ongoing.
