Couple Forced To Take Wedding Pics With Sunbathing Woman, And Internet Can’t Decide Who’s The Asshole

When you think about weddings, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Family? Friends? Or maybe a carefree sunbather photobombing every single one of your pictures? Well, as it turns out, the last one, though it may sound surreal, is actually quite possible, and it’s only one of many ways for somebody to completely spoil your wedding photos.

Mark Ling and his wife Mandy Cripwell never expected their photoshoot could be ruined in such a bizarre way, since the photos were to be taken at a very popular wedding photo spot in Torquay, England. According to Mark’s son Marcus, the sunbather wasn’t exactly keen on making way for the newlyweds. “I went up to her and asked her to move and she pretended to be asleep,” he said. “It’s a well-known wedding spot where you have photos taken, so she would have known it goes on there. Half of Torquay have their wedding photos in that garden.” Later on, she relented and moved aside, but left all of her things in plain view. One of the family members described the entire situation as, “Bloody rude and disrespectful.”

Even though most people believe that the woman should have moved, as to not spoil the entire photo session, many others have commented that since she was the first one there, she had a right to stay. What do you think?

Scroll down to see the entire situation yourself, and don’t forget to tell us what you think in the comments!

This isn’t the first time a wedding was disturbed by a carefree sunbather, there was also a similar story from in Australia

As it turns out, not everybody agrees with the newlyweds, many stated their opinion saying that the woman came to the spot first so she can stay for as long as she likes

Others found the woman to be extremely rude

My guess is that the wedding party came thundering in and instead of politely asking the woman to move over... they TOLD her to move over.... at which point she likely said F it. You must give respect in order to recieve respect!! Hopefully the newlyweds will be able to look back in 20 years time and laugh at the ridiculousness of it all!

Agreed. There are 2 sides to this story and we are hearing one. We have no idea what was said or done before the photo. We're making assumptions based on a photo that could have been staged for all we know!

I mean... Sure she WAS there first, but ..come on! They wanted to use the gazebo, and the sunbathed wanted to lay in the sun. There is, as we can all see, PLENTY of empty spots with sun and only one spot with a gazebo. Why couldn't she just move a few meters? Geesh.

So basically, she did not HAVE to move, and it shouldn't be considered RUDE to not move because it's a public place, but if she did move that would have been the nice thing to do.

The woman was there first, so I don't think it was rude not to move. But it would have been the kind thing to do.
