As the videographer moved to show a yellow bouquet placed on the train of her dress, the camera shook slightly – before the main explosion lashed the dress and spun the cameraman.
After dialing the camera, the videographer managed to return to the original location – capturing a man guiding the bride as she fled to safety.

The explosion, attributed to 2,750 tonnes of fertilizer in a warehouse, killed at least 100 people – a number officials fear rising – and also left up to 300,000 people homeless.
