  • People joked it looked like the bride had dressed up a dead tree trunk for shoot

Newlyweds may well have been left disappointed to receive the photos of their big day when one romantic black and white snap left the groom looking like he had a tree stump for legs. 

The US-based couple were snapped sharing a tender moment at their beachfront wedding, with the bride standing and embracing her husband while he sat on a tree stump.

But the unfortunate combination of the bride’s position and where the photographer is standing means it looks like the groom is half man, half tree. 

The hilarious picture made its way on to the That’s It, I’m Wedding Shaming Facebook group, where it was mocked by social media users.

In the picture, the couple are captured embracing on a beach, with the bride’s white dress spread on the sand.

But while the tree stump is clearly visible, the groom’s legs are not.  

It took a minute for people to figure out the optical illusion behind the bizarre picture. 

People were mind-blown by the optical illusion, with many saying it took them some time to find where the groom's legs actually were

‘Oof this poor couple…the photographer really should have caught that,’one sympathized. 

Because the man’s face was not visible, some said they initially had thought the woman had dressed up a tree and was pretending to marry it. 

‘I’m deaaad I thought she was posing with a tree with a jacket on,’ one said, in my mind I’m like “so we marrying trees now ??”

‘All this is doing is making me think about marrying a tree,’ another joked. 

It was explained that the groom was actually sitting on the trunk, with his legs hidden behind his bride.
