Okay. We all know that half the fun of getting married is the watching the wedding video a few weeks after. It can be hard to keep track of everything that goes down on your big day, so getting to relive the celebration from a different point of view after you’ve tied the knot is exciting for most newlyweds. Unfortunately, weddings have a lot of moving parts and variables ― not to mention that every family has at least one wild card ― and things can get rowdy while the newlyweds’ backs are turned. Luckily, the wedding photographers and videographers are there there to catch it all… and believe us, they catch everything ― even things you’d prefer they didn’t.
Here are some of the best things that the wedding photographers of Reddit have caught on people’s big days!
Just be glad this didn’t happen at your wedding!
Kids, am I right?
The father of the groom was making his speech, and got to a touching part about his wife, mother of the groom, who had passed away recently. I was filming from the back but got his sound okay, but there were a bunch of little kids near me playing quietly until one of them yelled “GODDAMMIT! F**K YOU!” right as the father was tearing up. Nobody seemed to notice but it was plain as day on the tape, so I had to do a lot of delicate chopping on that one. (LordPizzaParty)
My aunt had a camera floating around for anyone to use at her wedding. While my dad was filming, one of the bridesmaids spilled a bottle of red wine on the center table of the room. It knocked a bunch of stuff off the table as well as making the white table cloth red. Well my father was facing the wrong way. So when you watch the video there is a crashing sound then my father spins around and says very clearly “f**king s**t i missed it” as the bridesmaid is scrambling to stop the chaos. Funniest part of that video by far. (Treesarefriendsofall)
Wow Wow Wow
Used to be a video guy in the 80s and 90s. Shot probably around 500 weddings I’d guess, so there were lots of things that had to be edited out. Some of the more memorable ones are:
― the time the brother of the groom stripped completely naked on the dance floor in full view of everyone.
― the time when giving a congratulatory interview on camera, the very drunk bridesmaid started deep-throating the microphone.
― many, many “wardrobe malfunctions”. You’d be surprised how often b00bs pop out of dresses, especially during the bouquet toss.
― several fist fights/pushing/screaming matches.
mother of the bride screaming at the best man during his toast. She was furious about something. She wound up walking up to him and spitting in his face. That was fun….
― The groomsmen wrote “I’m f**cked” on the bottom of the groom shoes with a white marker or something. Every time he kneeled down in church the whole place could see it.
― Father of the groom had a heart attack on the dance floor at the reception.
― a woman at the reception sliced her foot wide open on some broken glass. Blood spurting everywhere. Got all over the bride’s dress too.
― the table that held the wedding cake collapsed when they were cutting it. Fell all over bride and groom. Bride was hysterical crying.
I could go on and on. (SmarmyArmy)
