A groom has been charged after allegedly assaulting a police officer in a brawl at his wild wedding reception.

Blake Osgood is said to have punched a police officer in the chest on Saturday night at his wedding party at the Elouera Surf Life Saving Club in Cronulla, south Sydney.

When officers arrived, they gave the 26-year-old and another 55-year-old directions, before Mr Osgood allegedly punched a police officer in the chest.

The groom continued to resist police, reportedly pushing a male cop to the ground and attacking a senior senior officer.

The police commissioner was injured in the wrist and knees and was taken to Sutherland District Hospital for treatment.

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

He was charged twice with opposing or interfering with a police officer in the performance of his duties, failing to follow instructions and two counts of assaulting a police officer in the performance of his duties.

Mr Osgood was bailed to appear before the Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday, while he spent his wedding night behind bars in a cell at the Surry Hills Police Station.

He still appeared in his wedding attire via video link, where he was granted bail on December 8 to appear at Sutherland Local Court.

“You’re 26, you’re married,” said Magistrate Ian McRae, as reported by The Daily Telegraph.

The police investigation into the incident is ongoing.
