Some of the guests were medical professionals who performed CPR on the bride, herself a doctor, until paramedics arrived, according to Israel Hayom.

The bride was rushed to Soroka Medical Centre in Beersheba in a critical condition.

The woman was also given CPR en route to the hospital.

She is currently receiving treatment in the intensive care unit in the cardiology wing of the hospital, according to local media.

The wedding was being held in the garden of a private home as wedding venues are currently closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Under the current Israeli regulations, the bride and groom are allowed up to 20 guests each in a bid to stop the spread of the virus.

So far there have been 115,057 cases of the coronavirus in Israel with 922 deaths, according to figures from Worldometers.

Earlier this month a bride-to-be in Egypt died just one day before her wedding from a heart attack.

The woman, only referred to by the name of Israa, was due to get married in Banha in the Qalyubia Governorate, according to Gulf News.
