There was drama ahead of their big day, however, when an ambulance was called for Ben's mom, Chris Anne Boldt 

She fell off the wedding property's deck and cut her leg. Pictures published by the Daily Mail showed the emergency vehicle on the Riceboro property after Ben reportedly found her outside. 

His mom was also seen in a wheelchair with a bandage around her leg after receiving stitches for the wound. 

She's expected to make a full recovery and will be there to witness her son's marriage to his new wife.
