The people who are the most bored at a wedding ceremony are the children. They might have fun for some time but they literally have nothing to do when the actual ceremony is taking place. From this candid, it can be clearly seen that the three children are holding on to three different emotions. While one is looking at the ceremony taking place with rapt attention. The two other children have a mind of their own. One child seems utterly bored as she is yawning while others do not even want to look at the scene. The picture does make us wonder on what exactly was occurring at that point.
7. An Itch or a Tickle
Seeing the picture it is not very clear whether the man is itching the woman behind the ears or tickling her. No matter what he is doing, the picture is quite a funny one.

However, whether the next moment was manageable or a disaster will be unknown to us. The expression of the bride clearly states that she is worried that the veil might come off if the man does not leave it. The poor man who has stumbled upon the veil seems more than eager to get it out of his feet.
9. The Boss lady
This candid picture is the perfect balance of fun and attitude shown by the girl. The little girl’s face is full of attitude as she is seen moving away from the boy lying on the floor.
