This accidental wedding photo is like a Nicholas Sparks film in one shot, but with less crying.

Being in love might feel epic, but it doesn't always look epic. A lot of the time, it just looks like two unshaved people on the couch together, wearing sweatpants and discussing what show to binge-watch next.* But occasionally, the look of real love matches the crazy, epic look of movie love, like in this picture taken by Sydney photographer Sam Yeldham. He was trying to take a time-lapse photo of the storm, but then noticed the couple standing out on the pier, and snapped a picture.

Yeldham was reluctant to approach the couple at the time, which is probably good, because nobody on their wedding day really wants some dude running up and yelling "Hey! I took your picture! Do you wanna talk to me, a stranger, instead of heading over to your reception?" But when Yeldham put the picture on social media, people started encouraging him to find the couple. That turned out to be Chris and Jessica Galvin, who found out about the image within a few hours of it getting posted on BuzzFeed. They were pretty stoked about the photo, as anybody would be if they found out they were now the subject of The Best Wedding Picture Ever. If you're curious, here they are in a lovely photo that has been drastically overshadowed:
