(MELBOURNE, Australia) — No bride likes to be upstaged on her wedding day, but one Australian bride had to share her timeless wedding photo with the galaxy.
Melbourne-based wedding photographer Lakshal Perera captured a once-in-a lifetime shot of the bride and her groom with the Milky Way in the sky above.
The photo was captured on Aug. 11 in Deniliquin, New South Wales, Australia, according to Perera’s blog.
“As a young child, all I dreamed about was being an astronaut,” he wrote. “As an adult, all I dream about is being a wedding photographer. “Yesterday, both things came together for one brief moment.”
Perera, who travels the world as a photographer, captured the moment using a Canon 5D Mark III camera and a 71-second exposure, according to photography blog PetaPixel.
