This Wedding Photobomber Is As Extreme As They Come

When getting married in Santorini, Greece, you expect to see bright blue water and idyllic white houses in the background of your wedding photos. But shirtless men jumping between buildings? Not so much.

That's what happened to Redditor mattyglen87 and his wife who got married in Santorini on Saturday -- the same day as the Red Bull Art of Motion freerunning competition. The photo above is of the groom's father and the bride before the ceremony with one of the competitors behind them.

Freerunning, which has origins in parkour, is a form of urban acrobatics that includes running, jumping and climbing over obstacles.

"Although it didn't impact the wedding in a negative way at all, I think the venue should've let us know [about the competition]," the groom wrote on Reddit.

A heads up would have been nice, but hey -- at least they got an awesome photo out of it.
