Bizarre Wedding Photos That Will Make You Cringe Immediately

Darren October 26, 2022

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).
