Bizarre Wedding Photos That Will Make You Cringe Immediately

Jump For Joy

There’s a common theme with beach wedding photos because it’s easy for them to go wrong. It seems simple to stand in front of the ocean and pose for a shot but there’s one problem. That’s because it’s difficult to control the actions of random people.

Brit + Co

Most people opt to bypass a wedding photoshoot but not this man. He decided to do a photobomb by flamboyantly jumping into the air. Some people will hate this and think that he’s an idiot. Others will think that he improved this shot by entering the picture (via Brit + Co).

Cheeky Shot

It’s an honor to serve as a friend’s bridesmaid but sometimes things can be very strange. Check out the shot below because it’s cheekier than most wedding photos. We mean this in the most literal sense because they decided to show their posteriors for posterity’s sake.


For some unknown reason, the bride asked her female friends to lift their dresses and flash the camera. We’re sure that the male guests enjoyed this moment but it may not age well. Imagine the reaction of more conservative members of the wedding party (via Cheezburger).

Cake Mistake

Most people don’t like eating wedding cake but it receives a lot of attention at a party. Typically, the bride and groom cut the cake together in one of the early symbolic gestures of their new relationship. However, this time it went wrong in one of the world’s most awkward wedding photos.


The groom accidentally knocked the cake over and sent it hurtling toward its doom. We know the cake is going to smash onto the ground but the photographer captured the moment before. It’s inevitable but we wish we could reach out and prevent the carnage (via Glamour).


This photo may serve as an early indication of the rest of this newly-married couple’s relationship. The moment also encapsulates one of the most awkward wedding photos ever. They probably didn’t imagine that things would go this badly as their marriage began.

Herald Weekly

First, their vehicle broke down and the man tried to fix it. But he was unable to solve the problem and now the woman had to take over. No groom wants to find himself in this humiliating situation, but that’s the state that he found himself in (via Herald Weekly).

Bridal Party Pick

Wedding photographers take many shots of the bridesmaids during a ceremony because they are typically young and beautiful in their dresses. But this bridal party probably didn’t appreciate the work of their cameraman. That’s because he snapped an image at the worst possible moment.

Domesticated Companion

They were adjusting the backs of their dresses but their actions appear to be inappropriate in a decent setting. Perhaps the photographer didn’t intend to capture this shot and they moved at the wrong moment. But the moment remains for the world to see (via Domesticated Companion).

Thank You Delta

Many things can go wrong on a wedding day but this groom made the best of a bad situation. This couple decided to travel for their ceremony but Delta Airlines lost his suit. He didn’t have time to find a new one but he came up with a novel solution.


Instead of searching for a quick, budget alternative, he wore a plain white t-shirt and navy boxer shorts. Then he wrote the message, “This wedding suit courtesy of Delta Airlines” on the front. We hope that Delta bumped them up to business class for the return journey (via Cosmopolitan).

Ride The Bucking Bride

Context is very important when it comes to weird wedding photos because we don’t understand what’s going on. That’s the situation in this case because the groom decided to ride on his new wife’s back. Meanwhile, she wore a unicorn mask as he slapped her rump.

Herald Weekly

We can appreciate the woman’s strength as she bears her husband’s weight on her back. It also appears that he is enjoying himself a little bit too much. This is a wacky photo but if everybody is having a good time then that’s fine (via Herald Weekly).

Lack Of Class

If anybody reading this article learns anything today it should be to wear a proper suit and dress. Don’t try to dress too out of the norm because it never looks good. Check out this horrible scene below because three couples ruined their special day.

Still Cracking

They chose body paint and lingerie instead of wearing a normal outfit. The problem is that this doesn’t flatter anybody in the shot. At least a couple of them appear to be regretting their decisions too. It’s sad to say but that’s not a surprise because it’s a shocking look (via Still Cracking).

Wide Smile

It’s the end of the night and this bridal party assembled because they wanted to share a moment. They’re beaming at the camera as they bask in each other’s joy. Maybe they won’t spend time together again for a long time. However, the biggest smile belongs to somebody else.

Domesticated Companion

A random woman stands against the window and looks in at the scene in front of her. She grins manically at the camera in an incredible photobomb. Yes, she may be a psychopath but it improves the shot. Imagine their reaction when they looked back at their wedding photos (via Domesticated Companion).

Dubious Transport

Most brides arrive at the church or hotel via an elegant vehicle. It could be a vintage car or a classy modern limousine but usually, it’s not a tractor. For some unspecified reason, this bride opted for the latter option because it suited her taste.

Elite Readers

Viewers will appreciate the attention to detail because they carefully covered the front loader with the hem of her dress. Nonetheless, it’s difficult to improve the overall aesthetic of a farm vehicle. They tried their best but it didn’t work (via Elite Readers).

Trail of Love

This photographer thought that he was capturing the perfect moment as the groom carried the bride away into the countryside. It should be a very romantic image but unfortunately, that’s not the way it turned out because of a crucial detail on the road.

Bouncy Mustard

A horse wandered along the road before them and left a reminder of his presence. Droppings tarnish the road but it is even worse because it appears that they fell from the bride’s dress. In the end, it resulted in one of the most awkward wedding photos ever (via Bouncy Mustard).

Head’s Up

Wedding dresses are temperamental clothing items that require a lot of maintenance. Many brides have technicians that fix their make-up, hair, and dresses throughout the day. This is important because it avoids awkward situations like the one below.

List Bark

We don’t know why this man has his head up the bride’s dress but she has a big smile on her face. We hope that he is doing a good job regardless of what he’s doing. It’s one of the most awkward wedding photos ever because of their guests’ confusion (via List Bark).

Turkey Wedding

Perhaps this is a strange wedding tradition that makes a lot of sense in another culture. However, it is deeply confusing from a western perspective. Nobody throws raw turkeys into the air during American or European weddings but this Russian couple did.

School of Photography

That’s very confusing but her dress also raises a lot of questions. It appears as though she auditioned for the role of Poison Ivy in the Batman universe before the ceremony. There are many weird wedding photos on this list but this is one of the most surreal (via School of Photography).

Long Day

Wedding days are exhausting experiences for the bride and groom. That’s because they want to make their guests happy and ensure that the day runs smoothly. They don’t have a chance to relax until the next morning when everybody leaves.

Elite Daily

In this shot we see the bride enjoying a moment of respite. She smokes a cigarette and clutches a bottle of vodka like it’s the essence of life (via Elite Daily). This may not be the glamorous shot that she wants but it sums up the exertions of the day.

Please Explain

It’s easy to comment on many of these wedding photos but this one is very confusing. We have no idea what’s going on except that it’s in Russia. However, that may be an answer in itself. There is a bottle of vodka and this probably sums up all of the bizarre events in the image.

Fix The Photo

The bride’s dress is an interesting creation and probably a traditional ethnic outfit. That’s fine but why does she have her husband by the necktie? Meanwhile, there is a bare-chested man with a bottle of vodka in the background (via Fix The Photo).

Wedding Hitch-Hikers

This bride took the expression “we’re hitched” to the next level. Her car broke down on the way to the venue and drove her to desperate measures. She’s hitch-hiking because she wants to reach the ceremony on time. At least the photographer immortalized the moment in his hilarious wedding photos.

Domesticated Companion

Imagine being the driver of the approaching vehicle and witnessing this sight. There’s no denying how surreal it would seem. Let’s hope that the driver stopped and helped her reach her destination. Spare a thought for the groom too because he probably has no idea what’s happening (via Domesticated Companion).

Wedding Cat

Some of the best awkward wedding photos see animals interfering with the shot. This cat showed the typical lack of respect that people associate with the species. It wandered into view and stood with its backside facing the viewfinder. Meanwhile, it almost completely blocked the view of the bride.

Popular Everything

Everything was perfect from the view to the happy couple. But this cat didn’t care and thought that it may as well ruin everything. There’s a reason why nobody should trust cats and that’s because they are evil. Here’s another one showing its true colors (via Popular Everything).

Inflatable Dress

Perhaps governments should make it a legal requirement to wear a proper suit and dress to a wedding. This may seem overly authoritarian but it would help to save couples from themselves. Then they wouldn’t don atrocious outfits like the ones below.

Teddy Feed

Hopefully, the bride isn’t planning on sitting down because her dress won’t help her. Inflatable balloons comprise the costume in a unique and horrible look. Furthermore, her husband is wearing a horrible pair of beach shorts. We pity their future children because this isn’t good (via Teddy Feed).

No Room For The Groom

Most men accept that the wedding is all about the bride and accept anything that she says. However, this bride took her fairytale wedding to the extreme and may have crushed her husband in the process. He may not have survived the journey from the church to the hotel after the ceremony.

Herald Weekly

That’s because she wore an enormous dress that crushed him against the side of the vehicle. The only positive side of this is that the car didn’t have a roof. Otherwise, it would have been a serious health and safety hazard. Nonetheless, this is one of the most awkward wedding photos ever (via Herald Weekly).

Almost Perfect

This could have been a beautiful wedding photo because of the lovely setting. The newlyweds pose together on a pier and pose in front of the camera. It appears to be a lovely intimate moment but one detail is ruining it. A glance at the photo below will make viewers shudder.

The School of Photography

It appears that the bride glanced through a catalog of wedding dresses and purposefully chose the least tasteful option. Meanwhile, she opts to squat like a Catwoman instead of sitting beside her husband. It’s a strange scene beyond normal comprehension (via The School of Photography).

Dress Attack

Some couples enjoy making animals a part of their wedding ceremony but this can be dangerous. Ask the bride below because she had a terrible encounter with a small dog. It didn’t pose cutely like she wanted but chose to savage her expensive dress.


The cameraman captured this in one of the funniest wedding photos ever. This isn’t the moment that she envisaged but it’s impossible to control everything. Hopefully, the dog didn’t do too much damage to her dress because that would have been a shame (via Ranker).

Fairytale Wedding

Everybody has heard the expression “fairytale wedding” but most people don’t make this literal. However, this bride decided to do that and included a pair of wings on her back. It’s a ridiculous decision but isn’t even the goofiest element of the photo below.

Bored Panda

She also chose to include a gigantic golden locket as part of her outfit. The woman is barely capable of standing as she approaches the venue but at least she has a smile on her face. On the one hand, it’s nice to see people not taking themselves seriously but it’s very silly (via Bored Panda).

Drop The Bride

It’s inadvisable to accidentally break the bride in front of the wedding guests. Unfortunately, this man may have done this to his new spouse. The pair were dancing together when things became too vigorous. The photo below captures the aftermath of the incident.

Herald Weekly

A look of instant regret arises on his face because he realizes that he made a mess. She whacked her head off of the tiles on the cold hard floor. Furthermore, a couple of guests are unsure of what they’ve witnessed. It’s a bad moment and typical of a ridiculous wedding (via Herald Weekly).

Disgraceful Outfit

This elderly gentleman deserves a lot of respect because this can’t have been an easy moment for him. His daughter opted to walk down the aisle in lingerie and humiliated him in the process. Yet he still went arm-in-arm with her as he gave her away.


Perhaps he wanted to make sure that she wouldn’t be his problem anymore. The stony expression on his face says everything because it’s an embarrassing moment for him. Nobody respects or enjoys this type of style on such a special occasion (via Cheezburger).

Wedding Cow

Russian weddings appear to be remarkable events and this one is no exception. We’re not sure why a random man is wearing a cow costume but more power to him. Meanwhile, the married couple stands on each side of him smiling at the camera.

Herald Weekly

It’s one of the strangest wedding photos ever because of its surreal nature. Perhaps the photographer is a creative genius and we don’t appreciate it. Naturally, the groom clutches a bottle of vodka because he is playing up to his national stereotype (via Herald Weekly).

Collapsed Pier

Here is one of the best awkward wedding photos of all time. This party assembled on an old wooden pier on a lake in the U.S. They thought that the natural setting made a perfect backdrop but things went wrong very quickly. This wasn’t the day that anybody expected.

Sky News

Their combined weight affected the structural integrity of the pier and it broke beneath them. Then the entire party fell into the lake in a glorious moment. To be fair, most of them have smiles on their faces because they don’t believe what just happened (via Sky News).

Fiona and Shrek

Some people take a wedding theme to the extreme and that’s precisely the case in the image below. We can’t imagine why they decided to dress up as Shrek and Princess Fiona from the famous movies. But that’s exactly what they opted to do as we can see here.


The only positive thing that we can say about this is that they appear happy. Yes, it’s one of the most confusing wedding photos, but they’re smiling and love each other. Many married couples don’t enjoy themselves as much as this pair, even if they are very strange (via Easy Weddings).
