At first glance, the wedding photo of a newly-married couple seems to show the pair lacking both patience and fear of discovery.

The couple are dressed in their wedding regalia and have seemingly run off from their party to hide in a forest clearing, according to Daily Mail.

The groom stands with his blue suit-trousers around his ankles, with his bride on her knees in front of him.

The image of the Dutch couple was posted online by the photographer, and was soon shared by thousands.

The caption at the picture read: "Some newlyweds cannot wait for the party to be over so they can quietly retreat to their suite for a smashing wedding night.

"Luckily they already exchanged their wedding vows and they were officially married."

However, the scene was completely innocent, and was posed by the newlyweds as a joke.

In fact, the staged photograph was suggested to the couple by one of their mothers, photographer Michel Klooster said.

Klooster said: "I don't want private parts visible on the picture, but everything that creates the impression is interesting."

"They were anyway very cheerful people. A nice and casual wedding, at which everything did not have to be so formal."

"Anyone who thinks this is offensive, still lives in the year 1996 according to my opinion. Of all the pictures taken, there is one that is playful, which in ten years is still fantastic to talk about.

"Give these people their joy. That is also something I wish to you. Life is already prudish enough."
