PHOTO ALBUM: Three cheers for the speeches!

It’s only happened a handful of times, but nothing makes us feel sadder than when a real-life bride gets in touch and asks us to swap a photo where she hates her facial expression. Normally in these shots, she’s mid-cackle and she hones in on all the worst parts of what this does to your face, when in fact, there’s nothing more beautiful than seeing someone clearly having the time of their life.

Never is this more evident than during the speeches – an emotional gauntlet that sees you wiping away tears as you toast to who can’t be there, all the way through to crying with laughter as the best man shares some NSFW antics he’d sworn he wouldn’t. So the next time you see a photo of yourself caught off guard, don’t focus on how the skin around your eyes looks – remember how you felt in that moment instead.
