Everyone dreams of that fairytale wedding, and whether you're an old romantic or a perpetual naysayer, you'll still want nothing more than to marry the love of your life in a saccharine ceremony, and it's for that reason that a wedding should be an unforgettable experience.
However, weddings don't always go to plan. Here, we'll take you through 22 wedding photos that are beyond hilarious and in some cases, incredibly awkward.
1. Rushing the groom
Wedding photos should capture the love of two people, and preferably, the backdrop should be equally as stunning as the love itself, but sometimes, intruders photobomb the photos!
In this case, it wasn't the town drunk or the unreliable friend who ruined the photo; it was a frickin' bull!
2. Windmill Gate
A wedding taking place in Ontario, Canada on August 14, 2009, could have ended in tragedy when a windmill knocked one of the groomsmen to the floor. In a moment of idiocy, the men climbed onto the windmill for a photo opportunity, but it soon turned comic.
As one of the groomsmen scaled the railings, the blade flicked him to the ground. We shouldn't laugh, but we can't help it. The dude got knocked over by a windmill!
3. "Down it, down it!"
We don't usually see the brides glugging gown alcohol like there's no tomorrow because society dictates that it isn't very ladylike, but who gives a damn!
This photo is brilliant and captures the relief and happiness the bride feels after a day full of preparation and nerves. Let your hair down, girl! You deserve it.
4. Love Can Make You Feel Invincible
For this groom, marrying the love of his life and being around all his friends and family probably proved too much after he was tossed to the ceiling.
No doubt he had a sore head in more ways than one.
5. Handsome and the Beast
Photos are sometimes captured at a peculiar angle and in the case of these newlyweds, one of their wedding photos appeared to suggest the bride had semi-transformed into a horse.
Forget Disney's Beauty and the Beast- these two are the real deal.
6. Making a splash
Weddings are supposed to be packed to the brim with breathtaking and romantic photos, but as this photo proved, they can also be a recipe for disaster.
Getting 19 people to stand on an unstable bridge is just asking for trouble, but maybe that was the photographer's plan all along!
Brides spend hours looking wedding-ready for their groom, so if you mess with their look- even accidentally- she isn't going to like it one bit!
In this photo, a guest accidentally treads on the end of her dress, which her beautiful hair just happens to be attached to! It's safe to say she screamed the place down.
8. The cheeky elephant
Elephants like to let loose at weddings, too, but instead of drinking excessively and dancing like your dad, they canoodle the bride with their trunks.
Making for a brilliant series of photos, the bride can only laugh and recoil as the elephant does its thing!
9. The most spectacular of wedding cake fails
This poor bride must have been embarrassed and distraught when her husband clumsily cut the cake with an axe as a joke!
The video was probably intended to capture a lighthearted moment, but the cake wasn't strong enough to remain stable once the blow was landed. Cringe!
10. "Quick, while mum isn't looking!"
If you ever went to a wedding when you were younger, chances are you'd sneak a bit of alcohol into your glass when your parents weren't looking, and it appears this cheeky little girl had the same idea!
We're sure she'll make an excellent drinker when she's older!
11. Cinderella's carriage is so overrated
The bridesmaid does not look amused! Taking one for the bride, she lets her pull her hair and treat her like a horse, which would be funny for those watching, but probably not for her!
But you can't argue with the bride!
12. Rule number one of being a good bride: Always feed your bridesmaids!
Brides need looking after on their big day, but a good bride knows that the well-being of her bridesmaids is also paramount, and that includes feeding them!
We're sure her arm tasted delicious.
13. Satan would be proud
We're no experts in theology, but we're sure weddings are a social construct that Jesus himself created to rule out greed and lust, but this scary couple proves you can be both evil and married.
Satan himself made an appearance; he was rumored to be the best man. Naturally, he turned up late.
14. "Till Death Do Us Part... Until A Gorgeous Woman Walks By."
Boys will be boys, but this married fellow really messed up! If you're going to look, at least distract your wife first! What an amateur.
15. The worst wedding cake in history?
We've seen some pretty awful wedding cakes in our time, but this feces-like abomination of a cake has to be the worst.
In fact, it looks like a big fat turd with a rat's tail. Not romantic in the slightest!
16. When a schoolboy error almost costs you your marriage
While this may appear funny, it's also highly disrespectful! Sure, the cat is being cheeky, and in the context of a 'funny wedding photo' it is actually quite amusing, but it's also incredibly disrespectful to both these beautiful newlyweds!
17. When your wedding attire is different....
Weddings are often criticized for being uniformly boring and drab, but one thing you can usually bank on is the bride wearing a killer dress. But what's going on with these outfits?
Clearly going for a more urban vibe, the lazy, childish fonts emblazoned on their clothes (particularly the 'wifey' part on the bride's bum) look truly awful!
18. Before it, all went wrong
Whether this is intentional or not isn't known, but if it is, this bride chose the wrong people to attend her wedding!
The stains from that coffee aren't going to be pretty. But love conquers all, right?
19. Gone with the Wind
Unlike the romantic, American civil-war drama Gone with the Wind, this bride was quite literally gone with the wind when a massive gust lifted her dress and covered her face!
Amused, the groom can only laugh, just like the millions of people who have seen it online.
20. The weirdest wedding theme ever?
We're not sure what this wedding theme is. But with fire torches, beach attire, and two hanging duck ornaments, we will guess it's a tacky tribute to an island-themed show they both fell in love with.
But without pulling any punches, it looks absolutely awful. Sorry guys!
21. A (very) wet bride
Weddings that take place by the sea or river aways run the risk of being complete disasters, as this poor bridesmaid found out when she went head first into the water! In truth, the photo comes from a hilarious prank video that sees a bride get married in a park. To get across to the venue on the other side of the lake, she asks an unsuspecting member of the public to row her there, without them knowing an invisible rope is attached to her waist!
22. Not so stable
As we've said before, having a wedding on an unstable walkway is never going to end well so in the future you might want to skip that verdant landscape with an ocean view and book a cheap church service instead!
