On the odd occasion you'll see something happen at a wedding which stays with you. A few peculiar happenings, so far I've seen;

-A groom take the brides surname.
- Seen a groom almost unable to sign his name but could write anything
else, a bit like stuttering.
-A bride and groom with the same really unusual surnames marry.

Keeps the job interesting. Any others out there?

I shot a bride and groom cutting each other and drinking their blood. And they got married under a pentagram.

By the way, it was a GORGEOUS wedding that was a full spread in one of the main national mags (can never remember the names as I've never even looked at a wedding mag and I don't do the submitting). When I tell people this they usually think it was a goth wedding in a high school gym, or something :P

I also shot a bride and groom under this tree...

As we were shooting, we noticed this bobcat just chilling above us :)

Coolest thing that's ever happened to me on a shoot (but I'm a HUGE wild animal lover so might not be a big deal to most).

I photographed a couple where the bride and groom both had the same first name.

One where all the speeches included the phrase "we really hope you two can make this work" that was odd

Oh I forgot, I've had dogs attend ceremonies, a good thing I believe.

One of the most challenging weddings was for a couple that did not dance for religious reasons. I mean dancing was not allowed for anyone. No music at all. At the reception everyone sat down and ate. Then they walked to bride table gave a hug and said goodbye. Was extremely hard to make anyone look happy at that wedding.

Reception included using a transparent purple double-sided soft dildo to hit a piñata that was attached with to the ceiling with temporary adhesive. The piñata was filled with various types of sex-related little gifts, dirty talk stuff, and candy. Some of the attendants held the dildo with their mouths to swing at the piñata.

To-date, nothing else has come even remotely close to being that interesting.

Much more mundane than Form's, but had a couple standing in a stream with the minister. All the rest of the party and guests were strung out along the banks.

To preserve the reputations of all of the persons involved, I won't show those photos. But I guarantee I took them.

I had a groom end up in hospital due to a diabetic episode last year. And yes their album includes a picture of him in the ambulance, but no first dance:(

Just posted about this in the photo share section... I had a squirrel at one of my March weddings...

-Eat the flowers before the bride walked down the aisle
-Plant his butt on the officiants shoe and eat the ribbons on the arch
-Jump on the brides dress and start eating the dress

The bride was completely oblivious but the guests were loving it. Pics here: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1178053
