Hilarious: What prospects for the House-Reckker marriage? Real wedding announcements from couples with unfortunate surnames
When you meet 'The One' trivialities such as the other person's surname are unlikely to hold you back from getting hitched - as these incredible pictures prove.
Indeed Mr Traylor wed Miss Hooker, Mr Rather tied the knot with Miss Grim and Mr Orefice walked down the aisle with Miss Rump.
Seemingly refusing to care about their hilariously unfortunate surnames, dozens of couples have opted to announce their weddings and engagements in their local papers.
And Oddee.com have collected some of the funniest newspaper clippings out there.
Presumably couples such as Elizabeth MacDonald and Joel Berger were relieved to have the option to simply take on their other half's surname.
One couple able to relate to the MacDonald-Berger's are Amy Moore and Anthony Bacon, who got married in North Carolina in 2007.
Miss Sharpe presumably dismissed any superstitions when she agreed to marry Mr Payne.
Whether Daniel Hardy and Rachel Harr still find jokes about their surnames funny is unknown.
Other name pairings require certain pronunciations for maximum mirth such as Miss Kumon and Mr Topomi and Miss Gowen and Mr Geter.
While most of the lovebirds who are keen to declare their engagements and weddings in the press have simply amusing names others sound more sinister.
Kara Gorey and John Butcher and Mr Hunt and Miss Kapture are particularly ominous-sounding.
Joe Looney and Shelby Warde, who wed in Oregon in 2005, were burdened with the same unfortunate problem.
Jaeger and Meister must be the butt of endless jokes. Something Miss Crapp and Mr Beer can surely relate to.
