Bride forgives groom for dropping her in slime
A bride had her wedding vows tested to breaking point when her groom dropped her in a puddle of mud as they posed for photos.
The couple, named Murat Zhurayev and Kamilla in Kazakh media, were posing for their wedding photos when the groom hugged his bride.
As he struck a dramatic and arty pose, Zhurayev slipped and the two found themselves sprawled in muddy slime caused by a lightning storm in Almaty.
The first snap shows Kamilla gazing lovingly at her man with the dramatic panorama of mountains in the background and their images reflected in a puddle.
The following image shows water droplets scattering through the air as they slide through the mud and both end up flat on their backs.
In another of the snaps, she’s kneeling in a muddy puddle with him standing behind in a suit also covered in mud, and it looks like she’s about to cry.
She was then seen walking away, on the verge of tears with a completely muddy dress soaked in the puddle and him struggling to keep up with her.
As Zhurayev plods through the mud and Kamilla realizes what it’s like, she laughs.
Photographer Askar Bumaga’s snaps capturing how the pair landed in the mud, transforming Kamilla’s dress from pristine white to dirty brown, have since racked up more than 41,000 likes on Instagram.
Bumaga told Zenger News, “My main specialty is photography of lovers and weddings. I’ve been doing this for over 10 years.
“I designed this photo shoot as an experiment. Unfortunately, or fortunately, such failures, other people’s mistakes and random situations attract more attention than standard photo shoots against the backdrop of a beautiful sunset.
“Indeed…these photos have gone around the world. We have been interviewed by various television stations in different countries.
“The photoshoot itself took place in Almaty, Kazakhstan. No one was injured during the filming of this project.”
Zhurayev and Kamilla have actually been married for over two years and were just doing a photo shoot in wedding attire at the time.
