The UK has been receiving some ridiculously warm weather recently. Scotland recently had its hottest day in over 100 years, and we’re still pretty toasty today – at least by UK standards. One has to remember that this sort of weather is so uncommon here that pretty much nobody in the UK even has AC, except in their car.
As it’s such a rare event, we often take to the local parks and beaches to soak up the sun while we can. One woman in Devon, England, though, decided to soak up the sun just as a pair of newlyweds showed up to take outdoor wedding photos. She refused to move, so they carried on shooting around her.
Lad Bible reports that the couple, Mark Ling and Mandy Cripwell, tied the knot in church before heading out to a local beauty spot to shoot photos. Friends and family in tow. But on appearing they spotted the scantily-clad woman enjoying the sunshine. The guests say they just expected her to realise what was going on and move of her own accord.
We all spotted her there and thought she would move, but she just didn’t. I thought ‘how rude!’.
She was surrounded by wedding guests, the couple were behind her and the photographer kept calling different people over for pictures – so she knew what was going on.
Eventually she got up and left after about 10 minutes of hus being there taking photos – but she still left all her stuff there.
It was bloody rude and disrespectful.
– Natalie Ling, wedding guest
It’s a tough one, really. The wedding party has no more right to be there than she does, and they certainly have no right to make her move. So, she didn’t. And, well, as pointed out in the video above, she was there first. And, they could’ve just gone somewhere else rather than expecting everybody to get out of their way.
On the other hand, it’s supposed to be the happiest day of the wedding couple’s lives, so pretending to be asleep the first time she was asked to move does come across a little selfish. Especially when there appears to be a lot of empty space to which she could go. She was asked a second time to move by the limo driver, and she finally did, however, she left all her belongings where they were in plain view.
Personally, I’d have moved. But that’s mostly just because I hate weddings and don’t want to be anywhere near them.
