Your wedding is supposed to be the happiest day of your life. The photos of it document the momentous occasion to remember and enjoy it for the rest of your life. For this couple, however, it may be a day they want to forget. During a wedding photo session, the bride was walking along a 4ft high metal railing. Then, she slipped and landed right on her crotch.

Instantly shrieking in pain and begging for her new husband to help her, she is lifted off the railing. It’s really not funny, but, schadenfreude does seem to be the foundation on which the modern Internet is built.

The “photographer” in this instance appears to have been using his phone. So, it’s probably not somebody who does this for a living. More than likely they simply asked a friend to help grab a few snaps. Exactly who came up with the idea of walking on the railing is anybody’s guess, but one can quickly see why it’s not a common wedding image.

To make matters worse, her husband, angry at the railing, decided to kick it, at which point he loses his balance and goes tumbling down the hill.

Needless to say, I’m guessing the wedding night’s usual activities have been postponed.

Remember folks, whether you’re a working professional or just hobbyist doing a favour for a friend, think about your subject’s safety.
