There are romantically staged wedding photos, and then there's this. 

A Sheffield couple’s wedding anniversary memories have gone viral online because of one priceless image.

Kevin Kennedy Ryan and Jess Ryan-Smith had a blissful wedding three years ago, but instead of the couple being head over heels, it was Kevin’s sister the bridesmaid.

Bridesmaid Grace suddenly fainted from heat during the couple’s first kiss, and the photographer captured the moment in a very unique photo.

Lying at the feet of the happy couple is poor Grace, who has lost one shoe and is holding onto the other with admirable composure.

Kevin shared the very entertaining photo to his Twitter followers this week with an assurance that his sister was okay after fainting and she wasn’t ignored by the wedding party, as the photo would make it seem.

“My sister fainted at the exact moment the judge says you may kiss the bride,” Kevin said.

“It’s a real split second photograph, a few seconds later we were all over her!”

Thankfully, the Grace was fine and could continue with the wedding celebrations afterwards.

Kevin told the Independent: “We got her back up, she was still a little wobbly so she remained sitting down for the rest of the ceremony with a cold glass of water. We restarted our first kiss and then everything was pretty normal for the rest of the evening.”

Kevin admitted that the photo wasn’t framed, but now that it has achieved viral status, it’s going to get the recognition it deserves.
