And looking at these pictures, you can see why.
Heads are chopped off, angles are askew and in many shots you would be hard pressed to spot the bride.
Not-so-happy couple: Marc and Sylvia Day in one of Gareth Bowers' shoddy snapsAdd unfortunate positioning and poor lighting and you have a day that is unforgettable for all the wrong reasons.
If that wasn't bad enough, thankyou cards provided for the newlyweds to send to their guests are emblazoned with their misspelled names.
This was the work of photographer Gareth Bowers from Fresh Images who charged them £1,450 for the privilege.
The results were so dire that the Days sued him for damages.

Bowers refused to comment after the case. The Days, however, have plenty to say. 'Some of those memories we will never get back again,' Mr Day said.
'He is the Don Quixote of wedding photography - he just doesn't believe that he can't do it.'

But the day was one disaster after another.
'The videographer missed us turning up at the reception so he filmed the driver opening the car door with nobody inside it,' Mrs Day said. 'Bowers also missed the cutting of the cake and you can see how angry I'm getting on the wedding video - I even do a psycho slashing knife action, which I can't believe they left in.'
But nothing could compare to the moment the couple sat down to look through the 400 photographs taken. They managed to find a mere 22 they didn't mind too much.
