Funny/terrible wedding photos

It's FRIDAY! Time for something a little different. Remember the sad story about the terrible wedding photos from earlier in the week? BBC News asked their readers to send in their own terrible wedding photos. Most of them are from amateur photographers, and I think these in particular are pretty funny.

From Jonathan Proud "As a keen amateur, I was designated 'official photographer' for my niece's wedding, as they didn't want a professional who would dominate the proceedings. I'd never photographed a wedding before. There was a driveway between the bride, groom and family members being photographed, and the rest of the wedding party taking pictures and looking on. From time to time traffic interrupted proceedings, like this laundry trolley, causing great amusement"

Photographer Gareth Fudge says "Being a wedding photographer is not as easy as it looks. You get the shot set up and someone dives in. Fortunately I am amateur and was just shooting my friend's wedding. This made it into the album though as a private joke."

This one makes me laugh so much. Says Carolyn Hendry "The atmospheric lighting in the venue was affecting the flash on our camera, so the picture didn't take until a couple of seconds after I pressed the button. The bride and groom looked beautiful - honest!"

Who thinks wedding photography looks easy?!? It sounds stressful to me. And I don't understand why you wouldn't hire a professional photographer. If you don't want a bossy photographer, don't hire a bossy person! The last picture of the pole is so, so funny. It took me a few seconds to even figure out that there were people behind that pole!

Have a great weekend!
