This thread should get you folk typing. I'll start the ball rolling with titles that proclaim, 'The Marriage of Peter and Cynthia'. My god - a 40 year film, complete with consummation, babies on the lawn, holidays in Brighton and death on the Nile. Let's keep it to the wedding day, shall we?

Stating the obvious, like 'the first dance', or 'the speeches'....I can see this being a very long thread:D

I smile, because this 'stating the bleedin' obvious' is all too common. Why? WHY??

The bride's Mum flashing her 'lady bits'. Happened to me twice now - neither made the cut. ;)

Surely, if the punters want things that video producers don't particularly like and are prepared to pay for them, the producers have a clear choice.

It could be worse - I remember the wedding at Epsom where it was the grandmother who started taking her top off.

One I did with the Groom & Bride`s father wearing kilts even though there was no Scotish connection, they were wearing "Elephant Pants" i.e. the elephants trunk was... well you can imagine, the Brides mother, who was a local school governer, insisted on a shot of the pr hoistin up their kilts! As it was a long time ago I can also tell you the surname of the groom, "Duff-Dick" I kid you not, you couldn`t make it up!!!

4 guys in the bathroom snorting coke. Guest broke her hip dancing. Fight broke out between rival family members - all second hand car dealers.
Best man coked up to the eyeballs and his trashy girlfriend (who wore a white mini dress!!!) strolled onto the dance floor during the first dance to engage in a grinding hips routine - the B&G wanted to do the first dance alone!
Bride left dance flooR in tears never to been see again all night.
All at the same wedding
Beautiful!

My pet peeve... speeches at the reception, when the venue has NO lighting on the podium, and no inclination to offer you a power point to light the thing....

*bug eyed* WOW, your weddings sure are more fun than mine - or even my news work. Ive never had anything as interesting as that!! The best ive ever had was have a knife pulled on me at a Bikie Gang funeral (and I was INVITED by the bikie boss)

With all of these tragicomedy incidents, Im sure we could approach a scriptwriter and get a new comedy going for the Beeb!!!
