Wedding photographers have been sharing the signs they’ve spotted that a marriage won’t last, having had plenty of time to watch out for the red flags while on the job.

A photographer gets to see it all on a couple's big day, allowed behind the scenes before they say ‘I do’ while also capturing relatives getting progressively inebriated as the reception.

The SIGHTS they must see!

Indeed, a number of them have taken to Reddit to share what they’ve witnessed at weddings – including the indicators that things won’t work out.

The thread began with one person asking: “Wedding photographers of Reddit, what was your ‘they're not gonna last long’ moment?”

And the community came through, with one Redditor saying it all came down to eye contact.

They explained: “Groom would not make any eye contact with the bride. So many photos where she is gazing lovingly at him, and he’s just like 10 yard stare right over the top of her head. Was a tough edit.”

Adding: “Groom’s speech included a line about how opposite he is from his bride because ‘her friends have never even been to Paris!’”

Another photographer said they saw one groom more interested in boozing then spending time with his new wife.

“Groom didn't want to participate in any wedding pictures after the ceremony,” they said.

“I believe he was more interested in drinking beers with his buddies. I don't think they lasted a year.”

A third wrote: “At the rehearsal dinner, every toast to the bride was some euphemistic variation of ‘I’m so glad you finally found someone to put up with your bulls**t.’

“They barely made it to the 6 month mark.”

One person, who was a wedding photographer for about five years, admitted they struggled with PDA themselves but often got couples to ‘let their guard down’ when posing for pictures.

“A few times though, I had couples that visibly didn’t want to be near each other at all,” they said.

“Once the shot was done, they went back to standing a foot apart.

“They would complain about each other and make fun of each other in front of me. It always left me with a bad feeling in my gut - and most of the time the marriage didn’t last long!”

Another added: “I'm a videographer and the groom called me a couple days after the wedding.

“He wanted me to make sure I didn't include any footage of him checking out the women at the wedding.”
