THERE can be no fury like that from a bride scorned on her wedding day.

Sydney woman Ashlea Howard has been left angry and hurt after a wedding photographer described her as the "ugliest bride I have ever photographed".

The photographer Lee Maxwell Judd purportedly said she "winged (sic) the whole time" and was "Bridezilla #1" on Facebook.

Mrs Howard married Daniel Howard in late February in Berrima, in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.

The Daily Mail reports Mrs Howard said the photographer was acting "bizarre" while taking photos on the wedding day.

She said she attempted to contact him later to complain, but he would not return the calls.

The bride and photographer are now trading barbs over social media with a group by a "friend" of Mrs Howard to take aim at photographer.

Mrs Howard posted screenshots of the comments on Facebook.

The photographer for his part has claimed that his social media page was "hacked".

He has since unpublished his Facebook page, telling Sydney's Daily Telegraph he knew nothing about the post.

"Not long after the hacking started to happen, I just unpublished the page and I haven't bother to even go there."

Mrs Howard meanwhile has been reportedly received offers from other photographers willing to photograph the couple in their wedding attire.
