A British couple was shocked to find that the videographer hired to capture their wedding for posterity spent the evening mocking guests and making anti-Semitic remarks, The Jewish Chronicle reports.

Anthony Aurelius could be heard on the tape calling the bride “unattractive” and referring to guests as “f****** cows.” But the real tipping point came when he surmised, “I don’t think I blame Hitler” and referred to Jews as “the meanest people in the world,” adding, “there’s not a lot of niceness about them is there?”

Stan and Claudia Gocman came into possession of the tape after receiving an edited version they deemed to be of poor quality. They paid extra for the unedited version he sent, but Aurelius was unaware that a microphone had picked up his comments.

Mrs. Gocman was quoted as saying of the video:  “It’s completely anti-Semitic and ignorant.”

“We didn’t want anything fancy or worthy of an Oscar, just a documentation of the day,” she said. “At first, I was really upset but then I was furious. I think he’s a disgusting little man. I can’t even stand to watch the video, it makes me so angry.”

In a subsequent, hand-written letter to the couple, Aurelius apologized for the incident.

“I am very sorry for offending you and possibly your family also. You did not deserve this. I am ashamed, in honesty,” he said. “I am trying to walk a good life, but in this instance I failed very badly in God’s eyes. I need to grow up here it seems and pay more attention to developing my character. This has taught me a lot to grow up in terms of not just my actions, but what I say.”

Watch the video, obtained by The Jewish Chronicle and syndicated to The Daily Mail, below.
