After months of preparations, the big day has finally arrived: you’re getting married. And what better way to celebrate this illustrious moment than to fill up that camera with memorable shots of the day? Like the wedding night, however, wedding photographs can sometimes be a little underwhelming – awkward, even. And no country does memorably awkward wedding photos quite like Russia.
It’s not clear exactly what’s going on here. Certainly, someone who we can only assume is a relative lies in the middle of the road presenting two wine bottles. Meanwhile, the happy couple and their entourage look on – amused but, weirdly, somehow not confused.
Here, however, every person in this picture looks equally surprised. And we think we know what’s happened here: the bride and groom forgot to invite the chap on the right but saw him while out celebrating and felt obliged to pose for a photo. Awkward to the max.
