A newly-married couple were left starry-eyed after their wedding photographer managed to capture them with an amazing star-filled galaxy as the backdrop to their wedding pictures.

As picture-perfect settings go there could have been no better for newlyweds Shirley and Warren Andrews, whose wedding photographer, Lakshal Perera, captured the couple in front of a stunning star-filled sky using just a single 71 second exposure.

Putting his technical knowledge to the test, Perera took the couple out into the open air while they were celebrating their wedding reception on a remote farm in Warren’s home town of Deniliquin in New South Wales, Australia.

Talking about how the luminous photo came about, Perera said: “I took four test images, at much higher ISOs so I could reduce shutter times, before I grabbed the bride and groom and took two frames using the bulb mode.”

“The first exposure was 59 seconds which I thought was slightly underexposed in the sky so I tried again and just counted out a little longer,” he explained. “The shed was lit with a single string of very dim fairy lights and about 50 candles. It was only one photo and they stood pretty damn still.”

Unsurprisingly Shirley and Warren were thrilled with the amazing results. “This is my wedding photo and if this was the only photo that existed from the day I would still be extremely happy,” said Shirley, a professional photographer originally from the UK. “Not only is it a bit mind-blowing and well captured creatively, it also expresses my husband and I in a much larger sense of who we are.”

Who knew a wedding photograph could be so out-of-this-world amazing?
