A SIGN OF THE TIMES
Wedding photographers are now asking (01) for payment (02) in advance because so many marriages are breaking (03) up in the first few weeks, often (04) during the honeymoon.
One photographer had to sue the bride for his money after the couple split (05) up on their honeymoon. His photographs were submitted (06) to the court who said they were (07) of sufficient standard, and she (08) had to pay for this souvenir of her "happiest day".
(09) In another case, the bride's mother saw the photographs and (10) ordered enlargements and albums. The photographer said; "I called (11) up/round to say they were ready, and the bride's mother said, 'Don't bring those bloody photographs round (12) here - he's left (13) her.'"
Couples are now (14) asked, forced, required to pay a "divorce deposit" (15) to the photographer.
