A long-suffering bride had her wedding vows tested to breaking point when her groom dropped her in a puddle of mud as they posed for pictures. 

The couple - named as Murat Zhurayev and Kamilla in Kazakh media - had been posing for their wedding photos when the groom scooped his bride into his arms. But as he struck a dramatic, arty pose, groom Murat slipped and both of them ended up sprawling in a muddy slime caused by a flash rainstorm in Almaty. 

Photographer Askar Bumaga's snaps have since racked up more than 41 000 likes on Instagram. His photos show how the pair landed in the mud, turning Kamilla's dress from pristine white to dirty brown. On picking herself up, she shows a pained expression, but soon begins to laugh.

Askar told Newsflash: "My main specialisation is the photography of lovers and weddings. I've been doing this for over 10 years. 

"I planned this photo shoot as an experiment. Unfortunately, or fortunately, such failures, the mistakes of others and random situations attract more attention than standard photo sessions against the background of a beautiful sunset. 

Askar says the images have "travelled the globe", appearing on TV channels in different countries alongside interviews with him. 

"Indeed... these photos have travelled the globe. We were interviewed from various TV channels in different countries. These photos were published in authorised public on the wedding theme. 

"The photo shoot itself took place in Almaty, Kazakhstan. No one was injured during the filming of this project." 

Murat and Kamilla have actually been married for over two years and were simply doing a photo shoot in wedding attire at the time.
