You did all you could. Personally, and I havent done this before, (and I know things were running behind schedule) but if he was really blocking a lot of key shots, I would have asked for a quick reenactment of a few things just to get a photo.
This weekend I had the father of the groom walk down the aisle while recording with his cell phone, a mini tripod, and battery charger. I saw him holding it before he stepped out and I figured I could "help" him by putting all the gadget stuff at his seat so I could at least get a photo of him without all this stuff in his hands. When I offered, he abruptly said "no, I'll carry it," and proceeded to focus his gaze on the tiny back of the screen throughout the whole ceremony instead of witnessing his son get married! Sigh. And, you know, every picture shows him holding up a bright orange cell phone.
