Wilson is facing five charges of assault and two charges of criminal damage at Aberystwyth court.
Wilson, who was the best man at the wedding, had assaulted Ms Mason-George, two of her sisters and her mother, as well as a manager at Lampeter's Falcondale Hotel, Wales, it is claimed.
Prosecutor Kevin Challinor said on July 27, Wilson, of Swansea, had reacted angrily when the family tried to get his brother Steffan to go to bed as he was drunk.
While they tried to help Steffan upstairs, Wilson started hurling abuse at the Mason-George family, it is said.
He said his brother should never have married Ms Mason-George and that he was 'no longer a Wilson', the court was told.
Ms Mason-George told the trial that things escalated with Wilson trying to throw punches at her.
