A couple’s wedding photographs were ruined when a nearby sunbather refused to move from her spot.

Mark Lung and Mandy Cripwell married at Furrough Cross Church in Torquay in the UK and decided to take some wedding photographs afterwards at the Tessier Gardens.

However, a woman was sunbathing right in front of the sun temple and refused to give up her spot to let them capture their precious memories.

Wedding guest, Natalie Ling, told Devon Live that the photographer was forced to snap photos around the woman, who can be seen in the video above with a towel over her head.

“We all spotted her there and thought she would move, but she just didn’t. I thought ‘how rude!’,” Natalie said.

“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.

“She was asked several times to move but just ignored us.”

While the woman did eventually get up and leave after about 10 minutes of the photoshoot beginning, Natalie said she left all her belongings on the grass.
